The three beauty rituals that make me feel put together every time is a poppy lipstick, loads of mascara, and having my nails perfectly manicured. Even though salons have opened, I'm sceptical about stepping inside because they're high touch places and with the current coronavirus numbers in India I am surely not going to risk it. So if I do have to do my nails, I've to do them myself.
When I was browsing for designs on Instagram, I came across the negative nail art trend that's taking over 2020. It's fun, quirky and it's the activity that you can perfect during social distancing. Trust us, by the time we have a vaccine for this virus, you'll be a nail art pro.
Let's get nailing...
If you're missing the gorgeous architecture of Europe and still crying over your summer vacay plans then your nails can pay a tribute to them. These are holographic and look remind me of the stained glass on Roman cathedrals. Super cool, right?
This is a relatively subtle one with only black and clear nail paint being used. If you are a night owl and feel most awake and alive at 3 am, then you can do up your nails with this cute moon and stars design.
Anyway, you're spending all your day on the phone, might as well have some aspect of your digital life on your body as well. The cute emojis all over will remind you to smile and take a break every now and then when 2020 gets a little too stressful.
This nail art is great for when you want something out of the box but not OTT. This design has been inspired by the stitch in clothes and looks amazing. It's a fun use of negative spaces on your nails to make them look fun without too much effort.
Even though 2020 is dull, your nails don't have to be. This nail art for those people (me) who can't pick one shade for their nails. Guess what? You don't have to! Paint polka dots on your nails and feel like you're back to your childhood in the best possible way!
I never thought I would miss things I had otherwise ignored in nature- the smell of flowers blooming, new leaves springing out, lush grass, and just greenery around me. If you are also in the same boat then this floral negative space nail art might be the answer to your woes!
C'mon, let's jazz up our nails!
