8 Nail Trends for 2011 ...


Nail Trends can be really hard to keep up with, especially if you are not really into fashion but you occasionally like to look fashionable.

I happened to just get my first manicure a few weeks ago and the first question they asked me was which nail trends I was looking to incorporate into my look.

That is what inspired this post – what nail trends are out there?

Stay tuned to find out!

1. Clear French Tips

Clear French Tips

One of the first nail trends that I have come across lately is actually the clear French tip manicure.

What they do is basically just color in your nail and leave the entire tip completely clear.

Personally, I don't think that this is one of the nail trends that I will be partaking in, but hey – it looks cool on some people!

2. Moon Manicures

Moon Manicures

Before I started looking up nail trends for this year;

I had absolutely no idea what a 'moon manicure' was.

Do you know what it is?

It's actually the reverse of French tips – kind of.

Basically, near the cuticle, there is a small dot of color, almost the shape of a moon while the rest of the nail is another color.2

It's a chic and fresh nail trend that I might get the next time I get a manicure!

3. Mixing It up

Mixing It up

Back in the day, before I was the super stylish girl I am now, I used to paint all but one of my fingernails the same color.

The one nail I didn't paint the same color would be completely opposite from the other colors.

Well, I guess that I was stylish even before it was cool because now, this leaving one finger not the same color is one of the hottest nail trends on the runway!

If you are really brave, try a host of different colors.2

It looks super cool if you can carry it off.
