Tartan Nails

Also known as plaid nails, the iconic Scottish pattern returned to the runway this Fall 2018 and it has made its way into the world of manicure. Tartan nails have become the epitome of versatility, giving you a sophisticated yet elegant look.

Opt for the classic colour palette of red and black this Christmas! If loud colours are not your thing, fret not. Muted tones seem to be the popular choice among Koreans. Incorporate pastels and neutrals to tone down the look yet retain its sophistication.

Accent Bling Nail

If you find your standard manicure a tad too plain but nail art is not your cup of tea, go for an accent gem. All that bling might seem intimidating but don’t shy away from this big trend - it’s a lot simpler than it looks! Basically, you will need is a base coat, a top coat and an accent stone. And you'll be good to go!

If you're feeling a little daring, paint this design on most of your nails and have a muted colour on your accent nail.

However, leopard prints might not be for everyone. For those curious to experiment with this iconic animal print, opt for this design on your accent nail instead.
 
Grid Nails

One trend we can’t seem to take out eyes off? Grid nail art. This if for all the minimalistic girls out there who are looking for ways to incorporate design into their manicure.

Sometimes, two colours are better than one. To pull it off with ease, select two hues that would work well together. It is also a perfect excuse to play around with more colours. There are endless colour combinations with this number.

Switch it up by drawing thicker lines for a different look!
 
Cartoon Nails

Travel back in time and relive your childhood by drawing cartoon characters on your nails. If drawing various characters on five fingertips is too much for for your liking, opt for one as your accent nail and leave the remaining four minimalistic. For nail art beginners, go for nail stickers featuring the cartoon character of your choice. Simply stick them on your fingernails and enjoy a flawless result.
