Will you paint your nails a polka dot nail art design? Oh Yes, I would! As I said in the other post, I wasn’t much of a fan of anything polka, yet everything has changed and I am lovin’ polka dots whether in clothes, shoes or even nail art design! How about you, will you?
There are lots of great nail polish collections to check out this season, offering irresistible nail polish shades for every kind of taste. Zoya’s True Nail Polish Spring 2012 Collection is one that’s definitely worth a close look. These gorgeous nail polishes cover a nice range to please the minimalist and lovers of bright, sparkly shades.
Cho is a nude with yellow undertones and just the right dash of shimmer. This polish offers a soft, clean look; and it goes on smoothly and easily. If you’ve been looking for a new shade of nude polish, this may be the perfect one for you.
Farah is also a unique nude polish, with a greenish hue. It’s got that look of being a touch dirty, like a grayish off-white does. This shade is ideal for people with cool-toned skin. There isn’t any chalkiness in this formula; it glides on nicely.
Bevin, according to Zoya, is a sage color but it may be better described as a muted greenish blue. It’s a romantic shade of nail polish, and it’s ideal for spring.
Skylar is also in this eclectic spring collection. Such a perfect denim blue with a hint of greenish tint. Silver, gold, and pink shimmer lighten it up considerably. This is an irresistible shade that applies beautifully and looks perfect with two coats.
Tru is a purple nail polish and shimmers of gold and bronze. This is a gorgeous formula that purple-lovers will go wild over.
Lotus is a unique cool-toned shade of dusty purple with shimmers of pink. This terrific nail polish rounds off a fairly stunning collection.
Don’t you love to get the same manicure as the celebrities? Zooey Deschanel, for example, has really been setting fun trends with her nails. Remember her tuxedo nails that she wore at the Golden Globes? She also made an impact at the recent Writer’s Guild Awards, where she wore typewriter nails. Again, so appropriate for the occasion!
For a completely different look from these recent Zooey trend-setters, long nails that can only be described as “ladylike” are trending for springtime. File your nail tips to the mirrored image of your cuticles. But don’t do too much filing because this style demands elegantly long nails.
Sporty pattern nail designs were created for Ruffian’s 2012 spring fashion show by manicurist Yuna Park. These are nails that make an impactful, energizing statement.
Amazing lattice patterns painted on Lucite nails showed up on Joy Cioci’s spring fashion runway show. The secret to this look is to paint a single color as opposed to several bright shades underneath the pattern; these nails can be more work-appropriate this way, as well.
Mellow-yellow hues provide a subtle while at the same time beautifully outrageous nail design. These nails made an impact at Karen Walker’s spring show.
A two-toned manicure created by Jin Soon, a nail pro, creates a slim silhouette. As showcased in Prabal Gurung’s spring show, wear a subtle pink hue and top it with shimmery plum for added depth. As Jin Soon said, “It’s classic and elegant.”
The reverse French manicure also had a strong showing on fashion runways for spring. Not to mention that Jennifer Lopez wore gorgeous reverse French nails at the Academy Awards.
Every bride should be her beautiful best for her wedding day as well as her wedding night. Everyday beauty routines aren’t good enough for a woman’s most special event. There are several appointments a bride should make either just prior to or on the day she becomes a wife.
A Hair Stylist
If you’re going with an up-do, it’s best to have slightly dirt hair so that the extra oils can keep the hair gripped into place all day and all night. Schedule a practice hair styling a week or two before the wedding so that if the look achieved isn’t what you were hoping for, you can try either a different style or a different stylist.
Like with the hair stylist, try out a makeup artist well before the wedding and find the exact look you want for all the pictures you’ll be in on your wedding day. Make sure that a primer is used first, to help with staying power. Makeup for your wedding day needs to look as natural as possible on the one hand but also needs to stay perfect all day. You need a professional who can layer on the makeup while not leaving you with a caked-on look.
For touch-ups on your wedding day, coordinate with your makeup professional to be sure that you have what you need.
One of the most important makeup tips for a bride is to wear waterproof mascara. You may not think it will happen, but emotions tend to run high at one’s own wedding and you could end up crying like a baby.
Your nails can be amazing on your wedding day, with all of the artistic nail designs that are available. In all of your busyness of getting ready for the big day, don’t forget to schedule a visit with a trusted manicurist.
A Professional Waxer
Get your eyebrows waxed and/or plucked by a professional before your big day.
With your honeymoon in mind, you may also want to schedule a bikini wax, a lip wax, a facial wax, or even a full body wax.
Hopefully you’ll only be a bride once. Let these professionals help you present your most beautiful self for that dreamy walk down the aisle as well as for your wedding night.
The colors of springtime find a rival this year in the colors of nail polish that are trending. There are so many amazing colors to choose from! Throw out all of your ideas about the kinds of nail polish colors that you have to select from because the shades are more wild, sophisticated, bright, and exciting than ever before.
One – Pistachio Green
Pistachio green is an amazing nail polish color, but it’s not the only shade of green trending this spring. Many shades of green are in style, and the polishes are all irresistible from those with creamy undertones to those with varying levels of opaqueness.
Two – Tangerine Tango
Wear bright orange nails with a famous polish shade called Tangerine Tango. The offbeat shades of orange mixed with metro brights that evoke the groovy 1960s are a huge hit for spring. Bright corals, which are shades of orange mixed with red pigmentation, are also widely popular.
Three – Glittery
The glitter craze has inspired a new crop of variations, including 3D holographics. Have fun this spring wearing the trending nail colors in shimmers of glitter. The sparkles come in new colors, shapes, and sizes. Make room in your nail collection for some exciting new polish.
Four – Neon Bright
Think of updated highlighter shades on your nails to grasp the trend which introduces a new variety of bright polish. The new interpretation of neon colors for nails presents a sophisticated version of past neon shades.
Five – Mannequin Nails
A revised version of mannequin nails is back for spring. These shades add a bit of hue to the nude nails that have been so popular. The latest mannequin colors match your skin tone as opposed to giving your fingers an appearance similar to that of a Barbie doll’s.
