My Amazing Artistic Nails inspired by Spring/Summer Trends…
Today I had a little visit from an amazing nail tech girl called Maz who I follow on Twitter @ChelseaDagger_ www.nailsbyChelseaDagger.co.uk kindly came into work and created these beautiful artistic nails using MUA Cosmetic nail varnishes and her own nail art brushes, inspired by Spring Summer 2012 trends-Pastels! I most certainly learnt lots of new techniques and tricks from Maz and will be using them in future nail looks I create. Maz has created a different look on each nail- Cherries, Zebra Print, Roses with polka dots, Leopard print and a lace love heart! I can’t stop looking at my nails now- they are just beautiful. Now I am ready to show them off at London Fashion Week.
From the runway to Main Street, nail art has emerged as a form of self-expression in which anyone can participate. Spurred in part by the recession, it’s a relatively cheap, a temporary way to feel stylish and make a statement on a budget. It’s no longer just about bold solid colours or eye-catching metallic. Inspired by celebrities and do-it-yourself guides in fashion blogs and magazines, everyone is having a go at this new trend. intricate floral patterns and cartoon characters, glittery mosaics, 3-D motifs with lace, gems, charms, foils, even magnets. The shapes of nails are even changing, from traditional round and square to pointy stilettos which Lady Gaga keeps rocking :)
Nail art is what all celebrities like Lady Gaga Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj lend their names to. Even Martha Stewart got behind the trend last month, when she invited “nail queen” Sophy Robson, one of the UK’s best known artists, on her show to create pink nails adorned with gold bows and studs.
Nail art is ‘The new lipstick of cosmetics’.
