Celebrity manicurist and LCN nail technician Chama Mulolo reveals the major nail trends for this season.
The length of now
“The most popular nail length is medium, which is a length suitable for all women; from the high-paced career woman to the stay-at-home mum.”
The shape to go for
“The trendiest nail shape is the ballerina or coffin shape; a distinct almond shape with sharp edges. It works exceptionally well with medium to long length nails and really makes a statement.”
Shades of the season
“As we go into cooler months, the most fashionable shades are gorgeous dark green, rich red or burgundy or a striking plum.”
“The most prominent nail art trend that is gaining immense popularity has to be flakes, that can be applied as a full cover or just to add highlights to a solid colour. The beauty of these flakes is that they give a radiant shine and reflect different colours depending on the light. Apply these over your nail colour. Simply dab them onto your nail and seal with a top coat.” TRY LCN Diamond Power (R195).
“Add graphic lines to your ring finger as a statement nail. Simply add a sticker over your base colour or paint it on using a thin brush. Simple but striking.”
We like LCN Nail Art Stripes (R185).
