Lions, and tigers, and nails, oh my!

I’ll admit it.  I have boxes and boxes of nail polish hanging around.  That is one of my biggest weaknesses. But what woman doesn’t love a good manicure?
I look forward to the new, stunning, wonderful, and sometimes wacky nail trends  every year – and cannot wait to try out some of the hot new looks that are in this winter and upcoming spring season.

This one, in fact,  I am going to have to give a go this evening.

Black on Black French Manicure
A little twist on the French manicure but still so elegant and classy.  Black not your color?  No worries, all matte nail polish colors are in this season.

Odd Man Out
Guilty as charged.  I tend to do this look from time to time as well.  There’s just something about having a splash of color that stands out and makes a statement.  Try this look with one nail a different color as seen in the photo, or add some glitz with one glitter polished tip.

The Midas Touch
We are seeing a lot of gold tones this season.  Shiny gold, glittery gold, even real gold.  You read that right, REAL gold!  If you’re willing to splurge a tad bit more, that is totally an option.  Want to rock gilded tips? Gold flake polishes run about $15-30 per bottle – but of course, a little goes a long way.

Blood Drips
These nails have an edge for sure.  Do you like the idea, but afraid that the “blood drips” are a little too edgy?  Try a simple red tipped manicure.  Or even choose a different color for your tips! Any bold color would give the illusion that you dipped your fingers in a brilliant can of paint.
