Apparently, the trends comes directly from the Vivienne Westwood runways and Leighton Denny. The “accent ring finger nail trend” is become increasingly popular, with celebrities such as Beyonce and Vanessa Hudgens also indulging in the look. I personally think the trend is a mixture of fun, flirty and a bit of glam balanced with sophistication (it’s subtle).
It’s simple really, paint all but your ring finger in the same colour – then use a contrasting pop of colour, nail art or glitter to emphasise the ring finger (only)
To create a glitter accent ring finger nail, you will need:
- Nail polish in colour of your choice,
- Clear nail polish
- Fine glitter in colour of your choice (choose complimentary or accent colours)
- Top coat.
-Paint all your finger nails on your left and right hand, save for the ring finger on your left hand.
-Only once all the other fingers are dry, paint your ring finger in clear nail-polish and while still wet, sprinkle on the fine glitter. The reason why all the other nails are dry is so that the glitter doesn’t stick to them as well...
-Wait to dry, brush of excess and then look for any spots that you might have missed. Repeat the process on exposed bits.
-Once the nail is well covered and dry, brush of all excess glitter and paint over a top-coat to seal.
