Top 3 Winter Nail Trends

May 23, 2013

We’re obsessed with gel polish so we asked Opallac creator Ruby for her top 3 favourite nail trends heading into winter.

Pale nails

Neutrals go with everything and complete a great pared back look for autumn. The demure style was featured far and wide across the catwalks this season with colours varying between soft milky creams, whitest whites and un-done French manis. If you wear one shade this season, let it be a nude.

Play it cool and keep your nails chic, stylish and pick a tone to suit your skin tone.

Punk nails

When every celebrity worth watching graced the MET gala red carpet in their finest interpretation of punk, we knew this was a trend to watch. This doesn’t mean chipped nails and boyish colours, the trend has grown and evolved. Shiny, slick black nails are the first port of call but consider deep purples and red hues to make the look more feminine but still sexy. Never be afraid of some nail art with this trend, whether a pop of colour on one nail, some black tips, glitter or embellishment.

Winter warmers

When the weather takes a turn for the worst, bright nails just don’t seem right. Explore the dark side and look for rich, deep colours. This is a great trend if you like a dark nail but find black too harsh, indulge instead with autumn tones. Think deep hued wine colours with some warmth to them. This is the perfect sophisticated look that will go with everything.
