Spring 2010: The Season for Bold and Beautiful Nails


For those of you ready to throw caution into the wind in a bare move of freedom from boring nail colors, you won’t be

short of options this spring. You can be sure your fingers and toes are ready to sparkle, make a bold statement or simply

complement your latest outfit. Whether you are searching for trendy, staying power, new age or the latest designs, spring

2010 offers some exciting new colors and styles for those looking for a walk on the wild side.

Demanding finish and color to the perfect manicure is nothing new, but it still has its value as new trends are emerging.

New colors are designed to mesh with personalities, and with the myriad of options, the French manicure is truly the lazy

approach to nails. Semi-permanent polishes and chip-resistant gels are being offered by the top salons, along with custom

colors and designs tailored to the client’s wishes- even if you don’t want to drop a lot of cash.

Color Trends

The New York Fashion Week offered a glimpse into the latest colors expected to take center stage throughout

2010. One bold move includes a black finish on long, pointy nails with a futuristic glaze on the hands from a

paraffin wax dip. Bare moon manicures get an updated look with bold colors to complement piping in shoes

and clothes, and custom sheer metallic washes combine colors for a shimmery, subtle finish.

Bring Back the ‘80s

Big hair, leg warmers and blue nail polish may have taken center stage for at least part of the ‘80s, but

the decade was not without merit in its approach to color. Spring trends are focusing on these strengths by

suggesting bold, bright and colorful polishes, flecks of sparkle and fun patterns. For those who mourn the day

of bright pink and purple finishes, such bold moves are back and dominating the season, along with orange,

green and burgundy.

Soak-Off Gel Nail Polish

While soak-off gels are nothing new, the trend is quickly sweeping the nation as customers are drawn to the

staying power and custom blend shades. Soak-off gel polish allows healthy growth of real nails – or added

length – while delivering true color for two to three weeks without chipping. The UV light drying technique

eliminates dry time, smudging and dents while the process eliminates drills and files. The downside is a color

change requires complete removal and reapplication – if you have the time.

The Season of the Sparkle

Bling, it seems, can never go out of style; it simply moves its focus to a new part of the body. For this season,

it has landed on toes with a process called Bling It On Pedi. This pedicure uses 500 or more carefully applied

Swarovski crystals to create custom designs. A one-hour application can last a month, but can cost as much as

five times that of the standard pedicure. Whether you are looking for animal prints, holiday hues or even logo

art, any of these options can be had for the right price.

No matter what your personality or wardrobe demands from your nails in 2010, there is a color and finish that

can fit your style. Whether you want length, bold, muted or simply shine, the options this spring are too fun to
