Unusual nail trends: cannabis nails, ombre and glow in the dark
Sick of getting the usual one toned nails in the salon?
Look no further as I introduce to you a selection of unusual nail trends that will make you feel as if you've taken a trip into the future...
1. Ombre Sunset
Perfect for a beach holiday, these fiery ombre nails will make you match the sunset. Ombre nails are a simple way to elevate monochromatic nails into something different that will stand out from the crowd.
2. Louis Bag
These hand-painted Louis Vuitton nails take extreme skill and patience to execute. This nail print no doubt has been inspired by the resurgence of the vintage monogram multicoloured bags, that elude a 90s vibe.
3. Drippin' in ice
Worn by the likes of Cardi B and Saweetie, Swarowski nails represent wealth and extravagance. For this year's Met Gala, Cardi wore stiletto shaped red acrylics dripping in reflective crystals. Go for a more bold look by applying a few chunky gems to the exterior, or opt for an elegant finish by using lots of pixie crystals.
Cannabis nails designed by Sheri Pie Nailz in London. These cannabis nails have also been worn by singer and actress Ms Paigey Cakey with some alternative fruits painted on them. These nails symbolise the belief that cannabis should be legalised in England due to the fact that there have been no cases in the UK where death was caused as a direct consequence of cannabis use. Cannabis has recently been legalised in the UK via prescription for medical use, and many members of the public use it on a recreational basis.
5. Pink Rainbow
Kylie Jenner recently rocked these pink nails on Instagram and everybody loved them! An unusual alternative to ombre, Kylie wore a slightly different shade of pink on each nail to give off a subtle wave effect. Queen of everything beauty, Kylie Jenner is definitely a trendsetter when it comes to makeup, fashion and nails.
6. Dollar Bill
These dollar bill nails will make you feel like a thousand bucks! These nails are made by cutting the shape of a dollar bill to fit inside of the nail shape and then to encapsulating it underneath a second layer of acrylic powder. Finally, you buffer the nails as per usual and add gems.
7. Glow On
Perfect for Halloween, partying or when you lose your friend in a club; these glow in the dark nails activated by UV light will have you feeling like you belong on Venus.
