Nail Polish Trends for 2012
So as I sit wondering over the ways of the universe (why me? I think all of Mumbai is in Goa except me), I decided to divert my mind with some beauty reads.
One of the things I read were some predictions about nail colors that would be trending in 2012:
1. Green: Apparently, green is the next big shade in nail paint, and my green they mean the milky pistashio green shades - it is soft, yet striking. But I personally feel that green nail paints are a bit of hit or miss. Not everyone can carry them off. I personally don't like matt greens on my nails, I need my greens to have a shiny, metallic shimmery finish.
|Neutral shades are in|
3. Nude Beige: The color of skin, nude beige or milky pink nails are going to be really big this year. I have a milky pink from Jordana that is really gorgeous, one coat & it is MNBB (my nails.... you get the drift). Three coats - it is a very feminine, girly pink. Creamy shades of gray, white, pale pink, and soft beige look refreshing on fingers, contrasting against the many printed clothing and accessories. Perfection is key with these shades, though—no chips, scuffs or slacking on the upkeep.
Of course nail art remains hot as ever, with newer techniques.
What do you think of these trends?
I quite like them, but I do wish that red & dark navy blue nails were also in the offing. I have lots of red nail paints (it's a classic for office wear too), and I can't find a decent shiny dark navy blue anywhere.
I would also like to see silver - grey nails paints - I really like them as well and it would be cherry on the cake, if instead of milky green, milky blue nail paints trended instead (I have cool undertones, and am able to carry off blues & greys much more easily than oranges & yellows)
Let's see if the predictions of the experts turn out to be right. What nail colors would you like to see trending in the coming year?
