Nail Art Designs: Top Trends To DIY This Fall

With nail art as an ever growing trend and the prices of manicures not always budget friendly, it’s always fun to try to do some nail art on your own at home. This fall Melissa Forrest, Sally Hansen Beauty Expert and manicurist of Tips Nail Bar gives us the low down on the season’s hottest colours and art trends to try at home.

When it comes to colours, “Sally Hansen colours are bang on this fall. Try Cherry Cherry Bang Bang, Fruitti Petuttie and my personal favourite “Blue Rose”, says Forrest for your DIY manicure. “Nails continue to be by far the hottest accessories! They are mini canvases reflecting the personalities of the women who wear them.” So have fun!

When it comes to what trends to try there are many to choose from. “We are going to see classic styling reinvented with fun colours this fall, “says Forrest. Simple tools to use to create original nail art include toothpicks, Saran wrap as a sponging tool, and makeup sponges.
