The Salon Professional Academy recommends popular no-chip nail polish hues

SPONSORED

Spring and summer are popular seasons for special events, especially proms and weddings.  It’s fun to dress to the nines and have an elegant hairstyle, fancy accessories, and a manicure and pedicure that have your hands and feet looking flawless.  Each season brings trendy colors and design styles; next time you go in for a no-chip mani/pedi, keep the following ideas in mind.

For a soft effect, try a buttery yellow.  It illuminates the surrounding skin, and looks great with a tan.  Go with silky gray for a neutral, cool look; it’s very stylish with an all-white outfit.  For a light pastel hue, consider a gentle lavender.

Another hot trend is the ombre look, starting with a dark color on one end of the nail and fading to a lighter shade at the opposite end.  A two-toned look with black and pewter, or with various metallics like bronze or silver, is also popular.  A shimmering cobalt blue offers a nice metallic sheen, and is part of the chrome polish trend.

Graphic art is also in demand, especially on the fashion runways.  Consider creating a “gold chain” look by using a nude hue on the nails, then applying a thin line of sparkly gold glitter polish on the outside edges of the nail bed.  A more modern, edgy look can be created by applying a bright red or orange polish on the nail, then adding a round circle in the center in a darker color, like navy or black.  The end of a pencil eraser is a great applicator for a perfect circle.

Fill in random corners of a lightly colored nail with a brighter color, or create random small shapes like triangles or squares.  Use colors like pink, turquoise, or orange to create a pop of color, or choose a hue that matches your outfit.  There are no rules, so get creative!
