Haute as Nails
Open-toe shoe season has arrived and to help you prep your nails to once again see the light of day, we stopped into Just Nails in Fitchburg to find out the trendiest looks for the season. Here’s what their customers have been asking for:
The Hot Color: Pink
After a long, dreary winter it’s no surprise that a pretty shade of pink is a popular choice. From bright and bold to sheer and feminine, a pop of pink can add a flirty touch to your everyday style.
The Hot Product: CND Shellac
Who says manicures can’t last longer than a week? CND Shellac, an innovative gel-polish hybrid can make them last for two weeks, flawlessly. This shimmering polish is painted onto natural nails like a regular top coat, but is dried under UV light to penetrate the base and color coats layer by layer. Try it at local Shellac salons and you”ll be impressed by the long-lasting, high-gloss shine.
The Hot Trend: MINX
Though not a look for everyone, MINX is a bold style of nail art that celebrities have been sporting across the country. As a flexible polymer that is heated then applied to nails like a sticker, this ready-to-wear nail art brings you virtually any design imaginable: alligator skin, paisley, fishnet, leopard print or even an ode to your political side such as a Democrat donkey, a Republican elephant or even photos of President Barack Obama. (It’s true! Beyonce, Solange and Eve all have made political statements on their nails.) Coming soon, you will be able to order customized nails from Minx and unleash any wild creation you can think of!
