It’s the hottest trend all over the world from Europe to California to New York. Painting your ring finger a different color than all the rest. This trend has slowly been taking over the United states the last two years. I have to admit this is the easiest way to put a beautiful twist on your nails, without paying any extra money at the nail salon and also easy enough to do at home for people who are artistically challenged or can’t come up with designs on their own.
This trend has got to be my go to look when I am doing my nails or getting them done. I always love to have a bright color on all my nails and a sparkle on my ring finger. The picture on above are my summer nails (Oh how I miss my tan hands!) and the picture on the left are my Christmas nails. Simple and easy!
Recently, for winter I got these bad boys done (pictured right). They are black sparkles with neon yellow as the accent nail. At first I didn’t know if I liked them, but now I am obsessed. These nails are edgy and different from what I normally get.
You can also add a twist to this already different look by adding caviar which I talked about in my previous post Caviar please! Or you could also add a little bling. Examples of those two styles are posted below.
The first time I came home from the salon with an accent nail my mother quickly questioned if I was in a gang! She was puzzled when I explained to her it was just another teenage trend. She though the nails meant something negative (remember those ever-popular gel bands in middle-school?).
I asked some of the girls that live on my hall what they thought about this trend. They to had noticed the trend and were interested, “I feel like it shows our generations desire for individuality,” says Adriana Leon. They were eager for me to try it out on them.
The best way to find your favorite color combo is to mix match and try out the colors you think would look good. Remember you can never go wrong with a little sparkle! I want to hear your favorite color combos to help give me more ideas. Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
Thanks for reading and Happy painting! 🙂
