It’s been a couple years since I did a trend-watch. Honestly, I’ve just been going with whatever Gelish tells me is cool. But it doesn’t hurt to take a look at what’s in for the season. So I’ve scoured the available info for some good at-home and salon manicure and nail art ideas for Spring 2019.
- Harper’s Bazaar says metallic nails are trendy for this season, and this is totallydo-able in the salon or at home. Start out with a metallic or glitter polish, and add rhinestones – as many as you want! Glamour suggests rhinestone outlines. I suggest Swarovski – here’s a link to the ones I use – they’re really pretty on the nail.PopSugar concurs, adding glitter nails as an upcoming trend that you can do at home. (Aren’t glitter nails always in??) I can’t think of a better glitter polish right now than Diamonds are My BFF from Gelish (and it is available in their dip powder, if you prefer acrylic).
- Holographic nails, according to PopSugar, are also still in. It seems like this trend has been growing in popularity for a few years now, and there are plenty of holographic polishes to work with. There are some really pricey brands out there, but if you’re a nail pro and can get your hands on the Morgan Taylor Platinum collection, I’ve heard they’re good! (Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried them.)
- Marie Claire has a list of trendy polish colors for this spring, including lilac, yellow, lavender, pale blue, coral, salmon, neutral white and beige. Fortunately Gelish was on top of these trends for us, and included a pale blue, Wrapped in Satin, and a beige, She’s a Natural, in their winter 2018 collection. Start with those, then keep an eye out for the Spring 2019 Gelish collection, called The Color of Petals, for beautiful lilac and coral polishes… along with plenty of neutrals.
