After a year of ups and downs, the beauty world is finally showing signs of familiar optimism. Blonde highlights, cotton candy hair colors, lush eyelashes, and graphic ‘60s eyeliner are all slowly creeping back into the spotlight. And how does the world of nail polish respond to this? By bringing back its metallic tones, of course!
Metallic Nail Polish Is a Kardashian Favorite
If you can trust anyone to start or revive a trend, it’s the Kardashian sisters. Both Kim and Khloe have been spotted sporting super shiny nails recently. Kim wore multiple bronze shades for her new fragrance, Metallic Hearts, photoshoot, while Khloe was seen with a lengthy, V-shaped metallic silver French manicure.
The Kardashians aren’t the only famous people to bring metallic nail polish back. Singer Billie Eilish sported chic chrome nails for a recent Vanity Fair cover. The best news for us normal gals is that we don’t need nail extensions and chrome powder to get in on this trend.
Other Nail Polish Trends for 2021
With winter soon giving up the reigns to spring, we’re about to see a lot of green in trendy nail designs. So, if you stocked up on Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day greens, don’t set them aside, as they will be just as popular this spring as they were a couple of months ago. Another trend is the zebra print and animal patterns, in general. Some of them are easy to make, others are better left to the pros, but no matter who does your nails, this trend is fantastic to look at, and it can add an edge to virtually any style.
Last but not least, alternate colored nails will always be in fashion. From neon pinks and blues, to yellows and purple-ish, you can’t go wrong with that, especially if you add a dash of metallic, wink wink.
