Polish and Nail Art Trends

Polishes have gone from creme to frosted, plain to glitter, from matte to shine, from regular to gel...
and that's simply to name a few of the changes and evolution of nail lacquers.

Can you imagine what more for nail art trends? Just last year, we were big on the crack polish trend, also known as Shatter (by OPI) and Crackle (by China Glaze). There was also the magnetic nail art trend, known as Magentix (by China Glaze)

This year, we see caviar, velvet, foil, ombre, glitter and accent nails. Although these trends have been in the market for some time, it's becoming more and more popular this season. At Posh Nails, we try our best to meet, even exceed your artistic nail art cravings. Do call us in advance for your appointment, discuss with us your nail art peg or bring a photo of your inspiration. 

6 Nail Art Trends we are loving now!

1) BEADS - Beaded nails more popularly coined as Caviar Nails

We are also digging accent nail, where the ring or pointed finger stands out from the rest of your nails. We love bling and/or contrasting color. On above and below photo, accent nail design is Caviar.

2) TEXTURE -  Do you notice the texture of the blue polish below? Yes, it is as textured as it looks (and feel!). It's velvet! 

3) GRADIENT - We are also loving gradient manicures, also known as Ombre. On below photo, we went all vibrant to match the summer season

5) GLITTER - Shine bright like a diamond! Indeed, with glitter art, you'll be shining your way through summer. Here, it was used as an accent over matte polish. 

6) FOIL - And one of our favorites, the foil manicure. It adds the right amount of shimmer, texture and color to your nails.

Do drop by at Posh Nails for all these popular trends and more!

The Nail Anatomy

Have you ever thought of your nails having its own anatomy? Well, for sure it does, it's just too small of a body part to even think about it.

Below is a diagram from that shows the structure of a nail

Who knew there is a "scientific" aka fancier word for cuticle? It's called Epony­chium 

An excerpt from is found below that explains the specific function of each structure.

"The structure we know of as the nail is divided into six specific parts - the root, nail bed, nail plate, eponychium (cuticle), perionychium, and hyponychium. 
Each of these structures has a specific function, and if disrupted can result in an abnormal appearing fingernail.
Nail Root - The root of the fingernail is also known as the germinal matrix. This portion of the nail is actually beneath the skin behind the fingernail and extends several millimeters into the finger itself. The fingernail root produces most of the volume of the nail and the nail bed. This portion of the nail does not have any melanocytes, or melanin producing 
Nail plate - The nail plate is the actual fingernail, made of translucent keratin.       The pink appearance of the nail comes from the blood vessels underneath the nail. The underneath surface of the nail plate has grooves along the length of the nail that help anchor it to the nail bed. 
Nail folds - This is the skin that frames each of your nails on three sides.Nail bed Your nail bed is the skin beneath the nail plate. 
Cuticle - The cuticle of the fingernail is also called the eponychium. The cuticle is situated between the skin of the finger and the nail plate fusing these structures together and providing a waterproof barrier. Your cuticle tissue overlaps your nail plate at the base of your nail. 
Lunula - The lunula is the whitish, half-moon shape at the base of your nail. 
Perionychium - The perioncyhium is the skin that overlies the nail plate on its sides. It is also known as the paronychial edge. The perionychium is the site of hangnails, ingrown nails, and an infection of the skin called paronychia. 
Hyponychium - The hyponychium is the area between the nail plate and the fingertip. It is the junction between the free edge of the nail and the skin of the fingertip, also providing a waterproof barrier."

Now isn't that an additional knowledge for us who love to pamper our hands and keep our nails groomed (and pretty!) all the time? ;-)
