Modern nail polish hues, predominantly pastels and neons have conquered the world with their intense, warm pigmentation, so no wonder that the trendiest contemporary style nail art designs are created using these nuances. Whether you’re using a color mashing technique, like the nail art needle technique or you’re turning towards stripes or color blocking, these fab hues will make your digits a delight to watch. Add in glitter to underline the color transition of your pastel multi chromatic nail art or keep things chic and simple. Another fab hue that you have to try is nude. Nude colored nails exude elegance and refinement as well as simplicity, and with a little bit of ingenuity you can achieve a gorgeous nail art design using this hue. Add glitter or apply a few newspaper cuts over the still drying nail polish to have the text transferred on the nail and voila!
