A bit about the Accent Nail

The accent nail seems to be the hot new trend whether it’s a shimmery glitter nail or a chic nude. Everyone seems to be rocking an accent nail from Rihanna to Vanessa Hudgens, even the models on the Chadwick Bell runway donned the infamous look. So here are some quick tips on how to achieve this ever so popular style. For starters, you have to pick a nail; we love the ring finger, if you’re an accent nail virgin. Once you get the hang of it get a little creative! Try the pointer finger for a little pizzazz, and maybe even the middle finger if you’re feeling edgy. The second step to a great accent nail is you have to pick the perfect color. The best Lauren B. colors to don the accent nail with are bright and fun because after all the point of the accent is to draw attention to your magnificent mani. My go to accent colors currently are Where’s My Oscar? and Hollywood Blvd. Both give that extra special something to my nails that ensures a compliment or two. I also like using complementary colors to highlight each other. You can use Hollywood Blvd to create a gradient nail by gradually applying more polish towards the end of the nail. Remember an accent nail doesn’t always have to be a solid color it can be a fun design, ombre nail or bedazzled nail. Don’t forget the point of this trend is to stand out and show a little more of your personality on your nails! Be creative, experiment, and have fun!photophoto
