When I hear someone say 2013, our current year isn’t what springs to mind, instead I imagine “Twenty-Thirteen: Space-Age of the Future!” As crazy as that sounds, I’m not the only one who thinks like this. Just take a look at recent fashion trends in nail art designs!
Two-tone designs are very popular, and rightly so! Contrasting colors make for some very interesting designs that make you look creative and cool.
The lunula, the white crescent shaped part of the nail that meets the cuticle, has become a popular area of the nail to paint or even leave unpainted! In the 1930’s the Moon Manicure was a very popular design, where the center of the nail was painted one color and the lunula and tips were painted another. Nowadays, half moon manicures are just as popular as they had been many years ago, with celebrities like Dita Von Teese promoting her own brand of nail stickers that sport the vintage design.
This trend has been around for the past two years and it doesn’t look to be falling out of style just yet. The appeal to this design is the beautiful color gradients which can be done on individual nails or fading from one nail to the next. A fun way to jazz up you ombre nails is too add glitter to the tips.
