2011 Spring/Summer Fashion Nail Trends… Get Excited!

The time has come, friends. I have the fashion nail trend report for 2011 Spring/Summer…


The 70’s take center stage again this season in fashion.  I’m talking Bellbottoms, White Blouses, Flip Floppy Sun Hats, Maxi (long, floor length) Dresses, Wedge Sandals, High Waisted Pants, Stripes and Hot Pants Yes, I just said Hot Pants are back.












“So, Jenny.  What does this mean for my Nail?”  you ask.  Lets break it down.

Bright’s will be bright this season with bold Primary and Secondary colors.  So fun!


Deep. Dark. Rich. These colors are the perfect look when your feeling confidently dark.


Dark’s are absolutely an option in the warmer months.  Go with Deep, Rich colors like Burgundy Reds, Dark Beige’s and straight up Black.





Find that polish that matches your skin tone perfectly for the hot new trend "The Mannequin" look.




Neutrals are all about the Flesh Tones.  Pick a Peach color or one that matches your skin tone perfectly giving your nails the “Mannequin” look.



NYC Fashion Week: Day 2

Jason Wu

Jason Wu’s theme this season was very much about Royalty, Luxury and Antique beauty.  The show was designed with chandlers and a golden framed runway.   The fashion was lace, crystal and accessorized in gold.

CND worked for weeks on the nails and came up with such a beautiful look by layering different polish colors.

I absolutely LOVE this look!  It is gorgeous and can be done by your Manicurist.  Such a perfect look to add a glamorous feel for your next big night out.

Grounding.  Confident.  Luxurious. Royal.
