Nail Predictions 2013
2012 was a great year for nails, we literally saw everything; ombre, cracked effect, twists on the classic French manicure and were introduced to magnetic nails, an amazing technology that expanded the world of nail art. Colours were magnificent, we were treated to some spectacular bright bold colours, such as those in the NARS Thakoon collaboration but also some lovely neutral tones came on the scene, which were heavily featured in Essie’s Fall collection.
Emerald is going to be a big hit, after being named Pantone’s colour of the year, everyone will want their nails a shimmering green.
Nudes and Neutrals still remain a classic look, but will be rivaled by soft pastel yellows.
Mango Orange and Hot Pink, 2013 will also see the return of the bold and beautiful, with a new orange set to be a summer favourite.
Matte finishes, from full nails to tips; matte is set to be the number 1 trend this spring.
Colour Blocks, last year we had to half-moon this year it is a very simple yet effective look.
Caviar Nail, as exquisite as it sounds, luxury for nails.
Diagonal Tips, French Manicures must be old news as this year it seems any tip other than the traditional white is in.
And finally, predicted to be 2013’s hottest trend…Leather Nails. I’m not too sure what I think about this yet, currently Nails Inc have a set that comes with mini skulls and bones, but I am excited to see how people use it.
