4 Nail Trends We Love for Prom

With prom just around the corner, it’s time to start preparing for a fun night of dressing up, dancing, and making memories! Prom is the perfect excuse to pull out all the stops and look your most glamorous. This is an event you’ll want to remember, so your look needs to be just right. That includes your nails. If you need some last minute nail inspiration, here are four trends we absolutely love!

Make a Matte Statement

There’s a reason matte nails have been trending for the last few years. They make a statement. Most of us are accustomed to shiny or glossy nail colors. A matte shade is something bold and different. If you use matte black (a popular choice) or another neutral shade, it will match beautifully with whatever dress you’re wearing. Matte polishes can be decorated with flowers or other nail art and look great on natural nails or acrylics.

All that Glitters

Maybe matte isn’t your thing and you love some sparkle. We totally get it. Glitter nails are gorgeous, eye-catching, and will never go out of style. Just like sparkly jewelry, a glitter manicure is a perfect accessory for any prom look. Whether you want a bright color, muted neutral, or feminine pastel, glitter is a great choice from prom nails!

Conversation Piece

The world of nail art isn’t reserved for flowers and hearts. You can get plaid nails, foil nails, ombre nails, marble nails, and nails decorated with actual graphic artwork. The list goes on and on. Try something different for prom this year! You’ll already turn heads in your gorgeous dress. Add some super-detailed, unique nail art and you’re certain to catch everyone’s eye.

Bejeweled Beauties

If you can’t get super glamorous for prom, then when can you? Bejeweled nails are the perfect choice for something classy and glitzy at the same time. This can be done with just a few simple jewels on each nail, or one decked out statement nail. Choose from gold stars, silver stones, colorful gems, or pearls. It’s all up to you!
