January is a pretty depressing time, so I thought it was time to cheer up and get stuck into some new nail art. This time, I went for one of this season’s key trends: winter florals.
Florals in winter follow slightly different rules to those we wear in summer – for starters, the base colour should always be darker, so I went for a deep purple. Oriental patterns like these delicate blooms with long stems work really well for winter months.
A lot of the fashion magazines at the moment are saying that nail art will die off in 2014, in favour of plainer nail decoration in subtle shades. I’d like to tell anyone thinking of ditching the trend to hold fire! Who says someone in an office in London should decide what we’re all doing? I like to wear them bold and bright, and I don’t care what anyone says!
(By the way, I got these done on a recent trip to London at Spa Nails in Teddington so if you’re in the neighbourhood, pop by! They were pretty reasonable at £13, I thought. Alternatively, if you’re in Bristol, try Nails Deluxe in Broadmead, who I’m sure would do a similar look for a comparable price).
