Alpine Snow. Funny bunny. Waltz. Blanc.
Sounds like something you’d find in a ski resort in Switzerland right!? Wrong. These are some of the names of the hottest nail colours right now…
Let me explain.
Somewhere in-between her first bum selfie and her second bum selfie, Kim Kardashian debuted a set of white nails and from then on, it was absolutely a thing. White nail polish became popular. And no, I’m not referring to the ‘whiteout you used to draw on your nails during a boring math’s class’ popular, I’m talking proper nail polish to go on your freshly manicured nails popular.
It is everywhere. Everywhere, people.
So much so that JLAW has even rocked a white mani. Why? It is surprisingly flattering.
Unlike most nail trends (stickers/candy nails/ impossible artwork that only a genius can draw) white nail polish allows you to look on trend and classic at the same time.
It’s not overpowering and it goes with everything. Plus, if you’re like me and like to keep your nails short and round as opposed to long, it doesn’t make you look like you have hobbit hands.
But it’s not the only nail trend you should know about. In fact, here are five others.
French Mani 2.0

Let’s face it – French Manicures have been around since Pontius was a Pilate. So why not spruce up your traditional French Manicure with some colours? It’s bright, fun and gives the classic manicure look a nice revamp.

Ombre nails have been on trend as long as Ombre hair. But this trend is 10x easier to do if you’re a bit of a brush klutz like me. Plus you can add your own colours to go with the seasons. Get a strong base colour to use such as Napolean Perdis’ Mediterranean Blue, and make the colours lighter from there.
