It has never been easier to make a statement with fashion, Nail art is proving to be ever popular and a trend that looks to be staying with us for a while.

We are all aware, when it comes to accessorizing, the finishing touches are often the most important, it’s often the small things that can make a big difference to any look.  Wearing a colour popping  fabulous pair of shoes, or a statement necklace is enough to transform a little black dress, from simple to unforgettable in a flash.  Bright red lips made popular in recent times by singers, Gwen Steffani and Xristina Aguilera, both famed for being trend setting fashionistas will glam up any daytime look, in one swipe of a lip brush.  This season we have seen a creative theme across the board with clothes, makeup and shoes,  but the most popular is right there at our fingertips, Nail art.

The colour choices we have  to adorn our nails in is infinite, but now ladies, its time to go that one step further, our nails have become a blank canvas for imagination, colour, and art.

A trend that was only once possible to achieve by taking ourselves to the nail salon, and most likely costing us a small fortune, has now become a trend that we can experiment with, in the comfort of our homes.  More and more labels and cosmetics companies, are being brave and producing a range of nail art products made easy for us to use at home. From a simple high shine metallic silver or gold nail colour, from the likes of Benefit and Channel, to art pens, from Sally Hanson, and L’oreal, which have slim tips, making it easy for us to add a splash of colour, using polka dots and stripes, and lets not forget the magic of the nail foil, Rio nail products and Barry M have a range of intricate patterns already printed on a thin foil that easily coats your nail leaving your nails look like they have had a professional makeover.

The possibilities are endless, from chic to grunge, sweet to quirky, there are no holds barred when it comes to ideas, we have seen nails transformed into strawberries, tuxedo’s, and even computer game characters.

So whatever the occasion, whatever your style, be bold, get those fingernails popping.
