2013 is here, and it’s an exciting time full of fresh new fashions, wholesome resolutions, and…fabulous and fun new nail trends! Nail Expert and Custom Nail Solutions President Katie Saxton has the exclusive inside on the hottest nail beauty trends of the year 2013. What new nail designs will hit the streets and runways? What will be the go-to color for your everyday wardrobe? Find out below!
According to Katie, the below styles will keep your nails in tip-top shape and ensure that they are ready to steal the spotlight wherever you go!
1. Two Tone French Manicure: This nail style exudes sophistication and classiness. To do this design, paint your nails any color and let dry, then add a French tip with a contrasting polish.
2. Sideways French Mani:
Painting your nails with a coat of polish and adding a different-colored vertical stripe on either the right or left side of each nail will be huge in 2013. This fashionable and unique nail style will make you the talk of the town in all occasions!
Both #1 and #2 will be amazing with shades of green or green with a contrasting color. Do not avoid the greens– especially since it’s Pantone’s Color of the Year!
3. One-Of-A-Kind French Tips:
Changing out the traditional white tips for animal print accents, colored tips, funky wrapped tips, polka-dot tips, bejeweled tips, etc. will be huge in the year 2013. This is a fantastic way to express yourself and show off your unique personality!
4. Colored Metallic Nails:
Jazzing up your nails with metallic polishes in colors like blue, red, and purple will be huge in the year 2013. This nail style is sassy and beautiful!
5. Vibrant Orange:
Painting your nails in shades of orange like tangerine and orange-red will be a major trend of the year 2013. Wear polish in vibrant orange hues to ensure that your nails turn heads wherever you go!
6. Holographic Nails:
Shimmery polishes with a 3D effect will be the go-to nail design in 2013. This gorgeous look is perfect for a night out at your fave downtown hotspot!
7. Real Gold Top Coats:
Adding a real gold-infused topcoat to a colorful manicure will ensure that your nails are ready for the paparazzi wherever you go! Although more expensive than a typical clear topcoat, the gold flake topcoat is so glitzy and glamorous that it is well worth it!
8. Half Moon Manicure:
This classy manicure is perfect for a high fashion event or a fancy cocktail party! To do this style, paint your nails a certain color, let dry, and then cover the bottom halves of each nail with a hole reinforcer or a half-circle of tape, making certain that a semi-circle of paper/tape protrudes from the bottom of each nail. Add a coat of a different-colored polish over the paper/tape covering and the rest of the nail, and then take off the paper/tape covering and let dry. Voilà! You have a beautiful half moon mani to show off to the world!
9. Edgy Accents:
Manicures featuring “bloody” tips, jagged tips, suspicious shadowy tips, and mysterious dark and dripping tips will be huge in the year 2013. Adding a chancy and dark theme to your nails shows your daring and adventurous side!
10. Pale Nails:
Adding a coat of pale pink or neutral polish will be a popular look in the year 2013. It is a subtle and simple way to keep your nails primped and pretty!
