From Lady Gaga to the pages of Vogue, manicures are not what they used to be. Instead of the usual one color quick fix, nails come in every color (sometimes all at once) and a multitude of designs and textures. Over the years, as fashion has evolved, so have nail trends. From shiny candy-apple red to deep plums, from blues & greens, greys and blacks to glitter and metallics. Polish shades are wide-reaching. Nail lengths have even changed – in the 80’s and the age of Dynasty, the longer the better. And who can forget Lee Press on nails? Then, shorter nails became chic. Now, we are seeing long nails again. Nails are yet another canvas on which to express yourself.
California company Minx Nails is heating up the nail scene with their amazing artistic nail designs. Minx nails were all over the runways at NYFW. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Lily Allen and Kim Kardashian have been sporting patterns from Minx.
Embellished nails do not come cheap. What used to be a $12 mani, can now run upwards of $40! Want your own set? Look for a salon near you.
