Accent Nails 101

accentnailWhen 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?!

These ‘reasons’ to try an accent nail are only a few of many, but really who needs a reason? In our book we think accent nails are a do pretty much all of the time! With a new catalog out for fall, we can’t wait to see what nail wrap you accent with!
