Prom 2013 is almost here! You have your date, the dress, the shoes, and the hairstyle already picked out - what could be missing? Before you throw out your prom to-do list, be sure to check off your nail design!
Try a modern twist on a colored nail by swirling on some paint for a whimsical effect! Get a glass full of water and put 1 - 2 drops of whatever nail polish color you desire. Paint your nail first with a base coat of a different color and then, once the nail dries, swirl your nail around in the water with the polish drops! It will create swirls galore all over your nails.
This year is all about the studs. Incorporate some heavy metal into your prom nails by super gluing on some nail studs for an awesome effect! It’s a great way to add some classy flare to your nails to spice up your whole look.
Although it may seem a bit avant-garde, caviar nails are all the rage. Try them out for your prom to add some runway to your look! You can choose fun colored caviar nails by applying a multicolor coat on top of a fun basecoat. You can even opt for a more sophisticated caviar nail by using pearl caviar over black nail polish.
If you're going for a more natural look, you might want to opt for a more natural nail. Add a fun twist to the natural manicure by painting your nails in a chic nude color, but adding a fun white design over top! You can gain some control over the design by using a paint pen, or you could just ask your manicurist for a floral, dainty design.
Instead of choosing your regular French manicure, try one of the new manicure trends! Paint your nails in a fairly translucent color and then paint the tips with a glitter and swipe downward for an ombre effect. You can also try a reverse French manicure where the tip is at the base of the nail. This creates a mod look that is perfect for adding a modern twist to an elegant look!
