The Art of Nail Minimalism

Nail art has taken a much needed break from the over the top and over done trends of these past seasons. Cluttered with glitter, jewels, add-ons and textures, nails have gone a little too wild to be practical. Don’t get me wrong- nail designs at the moment are anything but boring. They are polished, patterned, and pretty, but don’t require the steady hands of a surgeon to achieve.

New shades from Butter London boast effortlessly chic style, and can be applied with just one swipe.

 

Nail artists at NYFW toned nail art down with sophisticated, classy, and refined patterns that still exude beauty. Get inspired by the upcoming winter months and try cooler shades in snow white and icy lavender, shown below. If you (like I am!) are still wishing for summer, try your hand at an overlapping light pink and creamy yellow pattern like the one seen at Christian Siriano. There’s no wrong way to do this beauty trend!
