Nail Trends S/S '13

Firstly, let me apologise for not posting much this week - unfortunately I've had to have one of my pets put to sleep because she wasn't very well :(

On a brighter note - I have now reached over 100 followers - yay! Keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway coming soon.

Right, onto my post...

I've only recently got into painting my nails properly after vowing to pamper myself more in 2013 but my work doesn't allow painted nails so the weekend is my only time to get painting. I've been looking into nail trends for spring/summer 2013 so I can plan ahead!

Here whats in store:

Pale Nails -neutral and cream coloured nails and the classic french manicure

Dark and chic - dark, romantic shades, navy and purples will be continuing into 2013.

Metallics - galaxy nails are set to be big this year, also gold, silver and  colours and glitter tips

Two Tone - a new twist on the French manicure, choose a contrasting shades that flatter your skin tone and use a small brush to paint on a graphic style, half moons and diagonal strips are set to be popular

Edgy Elements - dripping blood and shark bite jagged edge (!) Have shown up on the catwalk in the spring/summer catwalk shows

What trends will you be trying?


  1. Sorry to hear about ur pet :(

    I too am pampering my nails more starting with getting them much stronger so they grow a bit longer and stay long! I love dark colours and love pale pinks but think the pale colours until the weather gets a bit brighter and warmer!



  2. I have to admit that I'm still loving neutrals so light pastel shades and neutral beiges will definitely be my colours of choice this Spring xx
