Fall is turning to winter in short order. As the season changes, so do the styles. Your salon has probably noticed a shift in requests from your clients. Not just in how they’d like their hair to look – but how their nails should look too.
Bubbly, summer nail colours are fading out as the weather gets colder. Your nail techs are probably receiving a lot of requests for a different approach. Possibly a shift away from the turquoise towards something darker. Our friends at Artistic have provided us with a few different trends that your techs should know going into the colder months of the year.
Deep & Fierce Colour
Having a set of nails that draw attention is always the end goal, isn’t it? They’re meant to draw the eye. And having a deep set colour from Artistic applied to your clients’ nails will really make them stand out. Artistic’s Fueled & Furious collection of paints and polishes are definitely going to give your clients some more attention. Deep and rich colours are going to make a splash this season.
What goes with deep colour? For nail techs looking to add amazing texture to nails, metallic accents are the way to go. Whether they’re chrome, deeply coloured sparkles, or shiny and gold, you really can’t go wrong with a metallic finish.
“Barely There” Art
Having a great set of nails can mean being a lot more subtle too. Nail techs are always looking for ways to express their artistic side, and “barely there” nails provide that outlet. Very small lines or stars or 3D effects on nails are perfect for clients that want some neat nails but can’t have anything too bombastic at their work. This is a great way to incorporate those metallic designs into nail art.
Another trend to watch this season is colour blocking. If your client has some shades in mind – but can’t decide on a colour – then blocking is a great midway point. Blocking your clients nails can give them what they want and allows your nail tech to show off a little more skill than simply painting with one colour. Multi-coloured and blocked nails always look chic.
Painting a full nail for a client is great, but why do we always have to use the full nail? What’s the issue with only using part of the nail and leaving the other part open? That’s what we thought, and it’s what Artistic Nails thinks too. Embrace the negative space on your clients nailbeds. For clients that can’t make it every two weeks, painting a nail that highlights the negative space on the hands can look amazing. Deep colours highlight that space even more, so don’t be shy with doing something dark.
