When it comes to nail art, there are dozens of different trends out there, but the Accent Nail trend is undoubtedly one of the biggest. Also known as a ‘party nail,’ an accent nail can quickly take your manicure from standard to sassy!
Here are a few tips on when the accent nail is an absolutely mani- must:
For the Nail Art Newbie –
Have a friend or family member who is a little hesitant to jump into the nail art pool? Accent nails are a great way for them to dip their toe (or finger) in to the world of Nail Art. A lacquer based manicure with a coordinating accent nail wrap can act as a gateway into fully adopting nail art onto all ten digits.
For a Special Occasion –
Have an upcoming occasion that may call for a mani that is a little more subdued or simple? Maybe a wedding, or an interview for a new job? An accent nail is a great way to keep your nails ‘event appropriate’ yet not too ordinary. Use a neutral or classic colored base for your manicure and then add that little extra pop with a tone on tone nail wrap. If the event is not too formal, you can go for the bold accent nail that features a contrasting color.
For making a Statement –
An accent nail can be a fun yet subtle way of making an announcement, declaring your allegiance, or sharing your fandom. Try a neutral colored manicure with either a pink or blue accent nail to make a baby announcement. Rock your schools primary color with a collegiate wrap accent to show which side you are on during rivalry week. You could even celebrate a holiday or pop culture event – Jaws inspired accent nail for Shark Week anyone?!
