2013 Nail Trends: Racing Stripes

Nail art was all the rage last year with more and more creative looks emerging on the nails of every beauty lover out there. It continues into 2013 with different designs, new nail polish collections, and inventive nail ideas popping up every week. One of my favorite nail trends right now is the racing stripe nails. It's an easier trend to follow for those who may not be as patient for the more intricate art and can still look just as cool and polished (pun intended).

Choose two colors that you want to use. Cool color combos include mixing a dark and light shade, metallic and neon, or a variety of bright colors. You can do thick or thin stripes and you can change them from vertical to horizontal. I like the idea of one solid stripe down the middle.

To create the racing stripe look, start with the primary color you want your nail to be. Allow this layer to dry and then paint a thick, vertical line down the middle of your second color to create the look. It's a good way to play with colors and also to include more than one trend into one nail look.

What do you think of the racing stripe trend? Which colors would you choose to combine?
