Top Five Nail Trends For 2012 So Far!

There are some super fun nail trends emerging for this year which we can’t wait to whack on!

Check out our top five picks for must try nail trends for 2012…let us know which ones you are keen to try!

1. Tasty Tangerine

Pantone named this the colour of 2012 and we could not be more excited for this vibrant hue.

2. All That Glitters!

This nail trend has been reinvented over the last few seasons and does not seem to be going anywhere…not that we are complaining! The key to this trend is to experiment with colours and coverage, but most of all to have fun!

3. Au Natural

Nude nails are always a classic, oozing elegance and sophistication that is more natural than your neons and reds. Make this trend work for you by matching your nail colour to your skin tone, or be a little daring a la DKNY’s black tipped nails.

4. Pastel Pretty

Pastels don’t have to be all cupcakes and ponies and tea parties. If you choose the right pastel hue for your outfit and skin tone the result can be very chic. For an on trend look, opt for slightly less obvious colours like pastel greens, yellows and purples.

Shop it $6.00 at Icna.com.au

5. I’ve Got The Blues

This is another colour trend set to dominate our sartorial decisions, which has already begun to trickle over to our nails. This is a fun trend to play around with hues, as well as funky nail art patterns. A deep navy blue adds a bit of mystery or a bright bold blue brings that pop of colour.

    I love the tangerine colour-its one of my favourite colours. The blue is really cool too. Chanel has this awesome range of blue nail polishes which I covet. The best nails I’ve seen this year were on Zooey Deschanel at the Golden Globes!!! Tiny tuxedos on her nails= best nail trend ever!
