Let's Talk About Metallic Nails

A traditional manicure generally consists of a red, pastel pink, or nude polish. The boldest amongst us will occasionally try the color of the moment like a turquoise or baby blue for summer and navy or burgundy for fall. For special occasions, a french manicure is a popular look and the reverse french, even more so. Some fashionistas are inclined to go for nail art. I am not one of them. But what ever happened to metallic nails? Have they been forgotten in the mix?

While I am generally inclined to choose a matte colour that suits my skin tone, I've been contemplating metallics and to my consternation, I can't seem to decide whether or not I could "pull this off". Are metallics tacky? Or are they fashion?

When it comes to our jewellery, many of us have a favourite metal, be it silver or gold. Some of us will even opt for a chic rose gold. When it comes to our timepiece, the metal you choose is everything, so you must choose wisely. While we tend to prefer metal for our jewellery to plastic (which can be perceived as cheap and tacky), why is the reverse true for our nails? Perhaps the new chic is metallic gold or silver. 

Now, as someone who is willing to try almost anything when it comes to fashion, I'm tempted to dig into this further and explore the metallic nail. Who knows? It may become the next fall trend to hit the runways and before you know it, bloggers will be promoting it everywhere.

So, next time you hesitate with the tacky vs. non-tacky debate, try it out. If it doesn't feel right, you don't have to do it again. When it comes to your nails, there's always a good polish remover to save you from an awful mani.

Ponder it,
