From Olympic athletes to CEOs and middle-schoolers to moms, people everywhere are jumping on the latest beauty trend – creative nail art designs. Gone are the days where a simple French manicure or a single flat color were enough to adorn your digits. They have been replaced with cool patterns, textures and finishes – many that pull their influences from the world of interior design. Check out some of the most popular Pinterest pins from The Beauty Department to see how the fingernails of the world could soon rival some of the most polished and put together room designs.
This popular design motif is perfect for either an accent wall in your home or for an accent finger on your hand. In both cases, a little bit of the pattern goes a long way.
The classic red, white and blue color combo makes a bold beauty statement when worn as nail art. In the home, the bright red works perfectly as an accent color in a dark navy room.
Black is a color that never goes out of style but is versatile enough to be continually reinvented. Put a new spin on a matte black nail with glossy stripes and dots. Don’t be afraid to update this go-to color by decorating a room with different tones of black – from patterned fabric to shiny mosaic tile.
When it comes to both beauty and design, remember that there is no wrong way to do things. Be bold with your choices for colors and patterns and don’t be afraid to update a classic style. The great thing is that you don’t have to commit to a look forever – you can always repaint a wall, move furniture around and break out the bottle of nail polish remover to try a new nail look. And that’s a beautiful thing.
