Here's a collage I put together of the nail design trends going around for this spring.
Half moon designs fell a bit short last year but seem to be making a strong comeback all the way till fall this year. Using a bold color or pattern to jazz up the classic nude french mani makes it look spring time fresh. A little less deco on the nails this year makes for a typing friendly mani, try jazzing up the lack of deco bling though with a glitter topcoat. Geometric designs and patterns are also making a funky 70's hit this year. Light irredescent polish washes over a dark nail color can make your old polish seem new again for 2011. Foiled nails were a fun hit last year and are still fun and inventive this year.
As for popular colors you'll find naked nudes, pale blues, peachy-pinks, lavenders and gray toned metallics. Popular topcoats this year are crackles, pearly polish washes and holographic or gilded shimmer polishes.
