Nail­ing the mys­ti­cal man­i­cure

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Trends -

HOT on the heels of last year’s crys­tal ef­fect fin­ishes, in­spired by Pantone’s Rose Quartz color of 2016, this sum­mer, mys­ti­cal nails, rang­ing from mind­ful to full-on sci-fi, are tak­ing the beauty com­mu­nity by storm.

Are classy yet yawn­some nails soon to be a thing of the past, or pri­mar­ily aisle-exclusive, à la Kate Mid­dle­ton or Queen El­iz­a­beth who swear by Essie’s Bal­let Slip­pers, sheer pas­tel pink shade? Nude nails pale into in­signif­i­cance now that geode nails are one of the big­gest sen­sa­tions to hit fin­ger­tips across the globe.

Nat­u­ral earthy shades are com­bined with shim­mer­ing or mar­ble-ef­fect var­nish, glit­ter and a nail grind­ing tool. An­other fool­proof route to the look can be achieved with acrylic shap­ing pow­ders like Kiara Sky’s won­der prod­uct, or lay­er­ing gel pol­ish and drilling it off.

In keep­ing with the nat­u­ral, bo­hemian-tinged, stone-in­spired nail trend, lead­ing main­stream favourite Nails Inc has launched a new range chan­nel­ing the feel-good vibe and of­fer­ing stun­ning, easy-to-wear shades to get cre­ative with.

The Mind­ful Man­i­cure line fea­tures iri­des­cent pol­ishes – per­fect for recre­at­ing the gal­axy look – and a top coat in­fused with well-be­ing-en­hanc­ing tour­ma­line, quartz and citrine.

The gemstone for­mu­las claim to pro­vide stress re­lief, pro­mote hap­pi­ness or of­fer “heart shield­ing” prop­er­ties.

And with names like Good Vibes Only Aura En­hanc­ing Rain­bow top coat, Nails Inc is po­si­tion­ing nails to be about more than just the sur­face. – AFP Re­laxnews
