It seems that they’re coming out with a new nail trend we simply must jump on every day now, and we’re bringing you a brand new one in the form of metallic nail designs. We’ve had matte nails for a while, especially with the Kardashians and Rihanna rocking them, but we’re going back to bright and shiny.
1. METALLIC AND GLITTER
Because why wouldn’t you want to mix metallic nail designs with glitter? This edgy blue look is amazing, holographic, shiny, and super-fabulous all in one. We especially love the pink and purple ombre on the one nail.
2. NEUTRAL & ROSE GOLD METALLIC NAILS
Selena Gomez recently rocked some rose gold beauties, proving once again that this edgy and cool style is definitely bang on-trend. Even Kylie Jenner has shared with us her beautiful gold metallic designs.
3. MATTE GREEN & METALLIC
These metallic nail designs are known by a whole bunch of different names – chrome nails, mirror nails, shiny nails, you name it. They all have one thing in common though – they’re all super shiny. Oh, and we love them all, especially these matte green and metallic marvels!
4. METALLIC ACCENT NAIL
There are a number of different ways in which you can achieve these metallic nail designs, and some of the methods aren’t as difficult as you first may have thought. One of the messiest ways, although it seems, one of the best ways to get the results you want also, is to use a highly pigmented glitter powder, which is layered.
5. GOLD METALLIC NAILS
A chrome nail polish can also be used to create the same kind of look, and if you want to get even lazier than that (just like us), you should look at nail wraps. You simply place this over your nail, cut off the excess, finish with top coat and you’re done. It’s all nice and simple, and we really love nice and simple.
6. SILVER METALLIC NAIL DESIGN
If you want to use the highly pigmented powder to achieve your metallic nail designs, you should be aware of how to do it properly. Watch tutorials online until you’re sure of what you’re doing, and if you’re opting for a nail polish, rather than the powder, ensure you invest in a good one. Cheaper ones have a tendency to run streaky, and this will destroy your super-shiny finish.
7. BLACK AND GOLD NAIL ART DESIGN
Do you know what works really well when you’re talking about metallic nail designs? Black and gold, that’s what, especially when the black is matte. We have some serious love for matte black, and thankfully black is a shade that never really goes out of style.
8. OMBRE METALLIC NAILS
What about when you don’t want metallic nails all over? How about a metallic ombre tip instead? It certainly tickles our fancy, and we think it might just tickle yours too. You can easily use a triangular makeup sponge to dab on the area you want the more tip to start, adding more as you need to, to build up the look.
9. METALLIC STILETTO NAILS WITH RHINESTONES
The good thing about these metallic nail designs is that they come in a wide range of colours, shades, and even styles. It doesn’t matter what event you’re planning for, there are metallic nails to suit every occasion, and you could even combine different looks – metallic and matte together, for example.
10. MARBLE & METALLIC DESIGN
Marble nails are just as beautiful as the metallic nail designs we’re showing you here, and we love the way that one of this season’s hottest colours – rose gold – has been used with a marble finish to give you a super-sassy, yet very sophisticated and glamorous set of talons.
