In Fall and Winter we tend to use darker colors, to match the clothes we wear. However, last year decorating nails with small drawings, i.e. nail art came into fashion. If you want some creative, cool nails to show off to your friends, read on! This season everything goes,from extra-long nails to medium-short size. Aside from this, there are plenty more manicure trends for autumn-winter 2016-2017.
Dark almond-shaped nails
This year fall and winter ask for a feminine and gothic-like took. If you want monochrome nails, leave them long and file them in an almond shape. Apply colors that range from black to burgundy in a shiny finish. With the 90's style coming back, matte nails are gone.
Metallics and glitter
Keeping this new 90s trend, we can find many of the shiny, funky trends that were totally in at the end of this decade coming back to style. To begin with, the metallic look, especially metallic silver is coming back, especially when sporting long stiletto nails. A great way of getting nails with a metallic finish is by doing foil nails.
Glittery nails polish is also back in style. You can either add a coat of glitter to your plain nail polish color, create colorful aquarium nails full of glitter, purchase a glittery nail polish or use it to create the line for a glittery French manicure.
If you're a real nail art expert, then a great way of decorating your nails is to create lines in different directions. Use a transparent coat as a base and create black and white lines or combine different colors, as you prefer. This is the classiest nail trend for fall-winter 2016!
Using more than just one color is nearly an essential for Fall nail trends, combine a nude color with a bright one such as sky blue or pink, or use the second color to give a French manicure a twist. Another nail trend for this year to combine two colors is ombre, i.e. using two similar colors to achieve a blended look.
As we said at the beginning, nail art is an increasingly popular trend and provide a myriad of possibilities for fun, cute nails. The latest trend, not only in nails but in design in general this 2016 is the marble print. Apply it to your nails by painting your nails with water, you'll see how great they look!
During the 2015-2016 season, nudes were already a big hit. This year they are still at the top of the fashion chart. Nude tones are still one of the winter-fall trends for 2016-2017. This is an elegant and safe way to do your nails, as it basically combines with anything you wear. Moreover, it doesn't take much to go for nude.
New French manicure
The quintessential nail art trend comes with a twist this season. Instead of the typical white line with a nude nail varnish, add the french manicure rim near the cultivable instead. Moreover, there's no need to go fir white nail varnish, you can create the rim with glitter or other nail jewelry and embellishments. The rest of the nail doesn't have to be in a boring nude color either, paint it in a striking and sexy tone such as red or black.
