Milani Fashion Nail Trends

Hi loves!  Today I have a special post for you!  Milani contacted me a while back and asked if I would be interested in creating some nail art looks inspired by their Fall Fashion Nail Trends promotion!  Of course, I said yes!

The four trends are Colorblock, Glamazon, Gilded Rebel, and Haute Rod.  I sat down to plan out the manicures I wanted to do for each of these themes, with the Milani polishes that were provided.  All of the polishes used in these looks are available in a promotional display that will be out at select Walmart stores!  They are also available at CVS or wherever Milani is sold.  Also, you can find these nail trends on Milani's PINTEREST and see what other bloggers came up with for each trend!!

I used Out the Door top coat for each look below.

The first trend is Colorblock.  Really, there is so much that could be done with this trend!  With the use of tape, really anyone can rock it!  However, I wanted to create looks that just about anyone could recreate so I only used the polish brush, and that's it!  So I did a fun colorblock diagonal tip!  I started with a base of Milani High Speed Fast Dry Black Swift...one coat is all you need!  I polished on a diagonal tip in Milani High Speed Fast Dry White On The Spot.  Once that was dry, I finished the tip off with Milani NEONS Fresh Teal, leaving a strip of white visible.  The contrast in this manicure is phenomenal and it has that wonderful Milani shine!

Next up, we have Glamazon!  What is more glamorous than red nails, jewel tones, and glitter?  NOTHING!  This manicure feels royal to me!  I started with a base of Milani High Speed Fast Dry Rapid Cherry and used the polish brush to apply a stripe of Milani Purple Glam down the center of the nail.  Milani makes the best full coverage microglitter polishes!  The purple glitter stripe was one coat!

Gilded Rebel was a fun one!  High contrast glitter gradients are on trend right now, especially with hot gold glitter like this!  The rebellious portion of this manicure stems from the fact that the base for this mani was the glitter, not the creme polish.  I started with two coats of Milani Gold Glitz.  Again, an amazing full coverage glitter.  I then used a cosmetic sponge to sponge Milani High Speed Fast Dry Black Swift onto the tips of my nails.  SO SPARKLY and fantastic!

The final trend is Haute Rod.  I was a little stumped with what to do for this one, so I decided to do exactly what the name implies!  The word "haute" itself means high trend, so I decided to do a trendy manicure with a new-to-me technique: dry brushing.  I got as much of the polish off of the brush that I could and then randomly brushed it onto my polished nail.  I used a base of Milani NEONS Fresh Teal and did the dry brushing with Milani High Speed Fast Dry Black Swift.  The artistic dry brush technique and the high contrast colors make this look super "haute"!
