Over the nail art trend? Try these three minimalist spring nail styles to give the "wow" without the extra effort.
Neutral or nude nails are cut-to-the-chase and versatile. This spring, try a neutral that doesn't exactly match your skin color, letting your nails pop a little. For example, if you have fair skin, choose a darker neutral like Venique Lace Me Up. If you have darker skin, try a light neutral like Morgan Taylor In the Nude.
Neutrals are easy to play up, too. Try finishing your nails off with a matte top coat or shear layer of sparkle.
What used to be a somewhat taboo nail color is now a fashion statement. White nails complement any look, so don't be afraid to try them out this spring.
To avoid streaks, apply a thin layer of matte top coat between coats of white polish. Make sure to let each coat dry completely - you might need to wait 30 minutes to an hour before moving onto the next coat. For a high-gloss white nail, finish your look off with a high-shine, fast-drying top coat.
Like white clothing, white nails can look dirty easily, so gently rub a damp sponge or paper towel over your nails to clean them up if they're looking a little grubby.
Feeling super minimalist? Ditch colored polish altogether.
Start with clean, dry nails. Remove any substances with remover, then wash and dry your hands and nails thoroughly (try a nail brush to get them extra clean). Trim your nails so not a lot of white is showing, then shape them up with a file. Use a buffer to smooth the tops of your nails, then soften your cuticles ( ). Finish with a thin coat of Venique Clear Is Sexy.
