ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty - VANESSA CRAFT

Over the past 15 years, nail trends have be­come as di­rec­tional and in­spi­ra­tional as those of fash­ion. We’ve gone from square-tipped acrylic talons (#no­com­ment) to short, rounded state­ment nails, from art-gallery-wor­thy nail de­signs to al­mond­shaped nudes. Metallics, which used to be chunky and a chal­lenge to ap­ply, are now silky and sat­u­rated with shim­mer, and buffed nat­u­ral beds are just as cov­eted as mir­ror-ball-shiny gel tips. I’m giv­ing this new cre­ative era the thumbs-up.
