Forget about boring, solid shades: Spring 2012 is all about glitz, glamour, and fun when it comes to your nails! What better way to get into the fun of nail care than with a healthy dose of competition? Nail manicurist to the stars, Tracylee is back to judge BeautyStat’s Sally Hansen Nail Contest, inspired by her favorite spring trends.
This year was all about colorful, textured, and definitely unconventional nails! Tracylee’s favorite spring nail trends encompass a variety of styles, patterns, and unlikely combinations. Enhance your opaques with bright aqua or tangerine designs, or try a new take on a French manicure with a statement-making reverse moons mani, in an unlikely color combination. Similarly, makeover the traditional French mani with pastel colored tips, and be sure to try the freshest neutral nudes as the backdrop to any nail look.
Neons are all the rage, especially when the coveted ombre hair trend recently made its debut on nails this season! We’re seeing dozens of neon color combos, especially when it comes to nail art. With so many colors to choose from, Spring 2012 is all about layering colors, textures, and patterns.
Now we want to see what you’ve got! Enter BeautyStat’s Sally Hansen Nail Competition by submitting a spring-inspired nail look that’s all your own. From neons, to glittered lacquers — with the season’s “more is more” nail philosophy — wow us with your own unique take on spring nails, and win a Luxe by Tracylee’s Favorite Sally Hansen Nail Swag Bag!
