Recently in music video's clebs have been going wild with their nails. From Lady GaGa's tips in Judas to Katy Perry's in Last Friday Night. Nails are the next big thing and it is going beyond just a hot pink polish and french mani. The bolder the better!
Here are some examples of the trend:
You can clearly see how celebs are taking it to the next level with their nails! What do you think?

Gaga's is the best here in my opinion, but nails are yet another great way to express yourself! I know many friends who've gotten into the trend, and play around with designs all day! I myself am awful at maintaining them therefore love to watch other people do their nails. My particular favourite trend at the moment is the marble-look. It's so funky!

I love nail art! I think it is so much fun and I love that they are so easy to experiment with. The best part is that they are non permanent which means that you can experiment over and over with tons of different styles. I just actually tried marbling my nail polish.
It was more work than I anticipated but everyone commented on how much they loved it. And you can easily do it at home with things you already have. I looked at youtube tutorials for inspiration:

They look awesome! If only I can do it or get them done...
I like Gaga's the best!
|Stilettoes, Rhinestones and Minx, Oh My! on Aug 17, 2011 @ 03:39 pm|
As a nail tech I wish more people wanted these nails !! They are so much fun to do - long pointy ovals, Swarovski rhinestones, lots of colour, marbling, etc. Most of my clients still want fairly plain nails which is fine, I get that. But once in a while I wish someone would request these. I do Minx as well (Katy's nails above are custom Minx) and still find so many people in Toronto have never heard of them. Frustrating for this nail tech on top of the trends!

@scratchmyback I've never heard of Minx nails! Are they the photo nails that she has in her photo?
Those are awesome! I love nail art because it is one of those things that makes a total difference and really makes an outfit but it is so simple!

I saw some pictures of "minx" nails and they were super metallic gold and silver. Are those considered to be minx nails? Please tell us about it I'm interested.

Hey alexjc & tammyk - yes those are Minx nails on Katy's nails - she had them custom designed (you can see her hubby on them). The gold and silver metallic were probably also Minx.
Minx is an adhesive product that is applied with heat and pressure to individual nails, then the excess length is filed off to make a seal on the edge of your nails. They come in hundreds of patterns - plain to really wild - the customized ones can only be done if you are some sort of celebrity though :( They are really fun to wear, you WILL get noticed, and in the summer I do tons of them on toes. They last about a week on hands and up to 4 weeks on toes. They are a very green product - no smell, very quick to apply and they are dry as soon as they are applied. Hope this helps :)
