Fall 2012 Nail Trends

Aug 27, 2012

It looks like the 80’s may be back, at least when it comes to nails. NEON is back, along with big bold color, bling and design. Check out the top 5 trends!

Flesh Tones

For the Spring 2012 Cushnie et Ochs runway show, Dashing Diva Nail Fashion Expert Pattie Yankee crafted a “flesh extension” look. Pattie mixed Dashing Diva’s Mr. Right nail polish with mineral makeup that matched the model’s skin tone. Trés fashion forward. Think you can try this at home without making a huge mess?

Nail Art

The art of nail polish is back, with bold color shapes, polka dots, and natural non-flower shapes like leaves, vines, raindrops, starbursts, and comets. And for comically-minded gals, moustaches.

Bling’s back, too, and this time it’s anything goes sparkle. From rhinestones to sequins to sparkles, if the nail artist can glue it on, it’s fair game.

Reverse French

The French manicure has been transformed and turned upside down. Top a natural nail with a brilliant color, and put an oval (kind of like a gibbous moon) at the bottom so it looks like an intentionally grown-out ordinary manicure.

Matte French

Matte means not shiny, so in a matte French manicure, the base color is matte and dark – blues, reds, yellows and even black tones – with a shiny version of the same color or an accent color in the crescent at the nail’s tip.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
