25 Feb Red Carpet Nails 2014
Golden Globes, Grammy’s, Oscars, and SAG awards. My favorite time of year when it comes to fashion and nails.
All of the celebrities are red carpet ready with luxurious, glamorous and fun looks. We are always paying a little extra attention to the inspiring nail trends everyone is wearing. We were pleasantly surprised by what we saw. The overall red carpet nail trend his year is a throwback to the classics; nudes and darks. Alas, the short, clean look was front and centre while few wore the long sculpted nail.
Katy Perry did a complete 180 this time around taking a step away from her notoriously long stiletto nails with wildly bold artwork, going for the toned down natural pastel pink grammy mani. This look went perfectly with her Valentino Haute Couture gown. Christy Teigen dazzled in a mermaid metallic Johanna Johnson gown and rocked it with a short black nail. Pink also wore a red Johanna Johnson gown but chose an elegant nude shade to compliment it.
From one extreme, of whites and barely there colours, to another, of eggplants and blacks.
Wearing neutral nail polish shades can create interesting, calm and toned down nail looks, while darker polishes create more glam and drama. Either of these styles are perfect for everyday and special occasions, as they will easily compliment any outfit or accessory.
Remember that more often than not, less is more when it comes to nails.
We have been a superman of the short, clean nail for quite sometime now and we are so happy to see it come back to the red carpet. This season gives a whole new meaning to sheer elegance.
