Trend Alert: Nude Nails

It’s modern. It’s sophisticated. And it’s the perfect complement to any look. Yes, that’s right, we are talking about the nude nail. Also known as the skin-tone or foundation nail, this trend has been creeping in since last spring, and is now taking off with full force. But why is this look so great, you ask? It’s actually flattering. Paint your nails nude and the elongating skin-tone color will thin out your fingers and makes your nails look longer without distracting from your outfit and accessories.

Finding the right shade is essential. To avoid a dead hand look, try a color that is close to your skin tone, but avoid anything that might appear too gray or white. You can even pick a shade with some shimmer to spice up the look.

Try out these pieces with your nude nails mani and watch your neons pop brighter against a neutral and fashion-forward nail palette.

Nude and Noticed

Once you get your nails prepped and nude ready, add some bright accessories in geometric shapes. The simple lines and bright colors will play off your nude nails, making the accessories shine.

Bolded Brights

One of the best things about the nude nails trend is its versatility. When paired with a bright patterned dress, nude nails and simple accessories create a neutral foundation and let the dress make the statement.

Animal print will grab attention no matter how it’s worn. Go bold with a red top or neutral with a black blouse. Either way, a nude nail keeps the look pulled together and clean, from head to toe.
