Proenza Schoeuler in New York Spring catwalk has debuted a really unusual freelance style using swirls of nail polish confidently draped across the nail. The key with this trend is to be confident with your nail swirl and “ice” your nails otherwise it will look like a big messy mistake!

Nail Tips

Nail tips are a really dramatic nail art, where a strong colour is used as a base alongside a dramatic contrast tip. So for example, a dramatic noir shellac with a silver tip can be extremely glamorous with that little black dress.

French manicure

A simple French manicure with a lovely clean line of repeated white to mirror the tip one-third of the way down the nail can look so clean, smart and stylish. Using a fluorescent tip with a nude colour will look very flattering and swish. A simple side stripe in a dramatic colour curving around the nail bed is another great way to add drama.

Add gold or silver

A soft gold or silver tip with natural nails can look high-end and sophisticated without being over the top. If you’re looking for something a little more dramatic then look no further than a simple French manicure with a side stripe of dramatic gold foil sealed with a clear shellac to even up the surface.

Make a statement

Perhaps the most important thing to remember is to use your nails to make a statement and to enjoy choosing a look that works for your event, your mood and your outfit. Nails should express your personality. Visit www.ellisons.co.uk to get more ideas to help you express your personality with your modern nail techniques.
