Trends: Spring nails get their stripes
Before we drive a nail (no pun intended) into nail arts coffin, let’s pause to admire the spate of Spring’s enviable striped manicures prompting us to put aside our simple neutrals and classic red polish in favor of something with a little more edge. Modern, nautical, multi-colored and B/W, stripes are big on this season’s clothing, so why not take it that extra step? We found inspiration in the striped nail art featured on designer runways like Tibi, Emerson, Zimmermann, Tracy Reese, Sun Rays and Kye and have seen plenty of the look on the street style blogging scene—it’s only natural to take up the trend ourselves. So load up on the scotch tape, or get thee to your manicurist—flaunting a full rainbow or sporting a simple thin wisp of black on your prettily painted neutral, striped manicures are without question the thing for spring. Here are some of our favorite looks!
