It’s Summer time! You know what that means? Time for all those Spring/Summer beauty products to come out and suck us in! But normally when we hear “beauty trends” we think of makeup. But this year’s hottest trend for Spring/Summer 2014 is… drum roll please… High Voltage Nails!
What does this mean? It means bright, fun colors! It also means cool, funky patterns! And Sephora can be your one-stop-shop for all of these. They have beautiful colors brought to us by many different designers, as well as their very own Formula X brand.
Above are a few of my top picks! From top left around to top right:
- Deborah Lippmann in Maniac ($18)
- Formula X in Danger Zone ($10.50)
- Formula X Press Nail Pods ($39)
- Marc Jacobs in Shocking ($18)
- Deborah Lippmann in She Drives Me Crazy ($18)
- Formula X in Kapow! ($10.50)
- Marc Jacobs in Lux ($18)
The two full sized Formula X polishes have a full coverage glitter effect and the rest have a beautiful high shine finish. All of these colors are great to mix and match with one another! I’ve noticed that aztec patterns have been very popular in the nail world. Or you can always do as I do: paint four of nails one color and the have one a different. Just a fun little way to mix it up.
Two years ago was the Year of the lips. Last year was the Year of the Brow. I have a feeling this year is going to be the Year of the Nails. Go out and have some fun!
