Nail art is the easiest way to achieve a-list beauty looks in an instant. Take a look at the nail art ideas the celebrities have been showing off, and just how easy they are to try for yourself...
Nail art is having a moment. Suddenly decorated finger tips are the ultimate status symbol of someone clued up on their trends.
It started with colour blocking. The simplest look to recreate, the rainbow nails trend can feature one accent nail or a whole 5-digit colour wheel but it’s the best way to wear the season’s best colours in one go. For spring, the choice palette is pastels. You’ll love the new season ice blues, mint greens and candy floss pinks. But the one that the a-listers are choosing? White nails. As seen on Lupita Nyong’o, Rihanna and Miley.
This year, nail art designs have become far more adventurous. Want to make a statement for a special occasion? Look at Adele’s cool crown nails and Rita Ora’s smiley tips. Though if you want the nail art designs of the moment, take a few lessons from ‘it’ girl Alexa Chung. She experiments with 3D florals to follow the current catwalk obsession.
So see what the stars are asking for at the nail bars and make a statement with your finger tips.
