Neutral Colors &Quot;nail" It for the New Year

Go Neutral With Your Nails

Neutral colored nails are hardly a new trend, but it is my prediction for what we'll be seeing more of in the coming months. I think 2012 was a big year for nails, but as the new year begins I think people will keep things simpler. Last year we saw trends in length from squared off short nails to edgy, extra long lengths. We also saw many color trends and designs as well.

Neon colors and alternating shades were on people's hot lists, as was metallics and intricate designs. Nail stickers also made a surge throughout beauty blogs and videos last year and showed up in drugstores all over. But with what I believe to be the "new trend" in nails, neutral will be the way to go.

The good news is that a neutral nail keeps things looking polished, classy, professional, and chic all at the same time. The most important thing is to keep your nails in good condition. I like to keep mine short because they are easier to keep clean. Whenever I wear a lot of color on my nails, it can start to make them look a little yellow whenever I take the color off. I then go a couple weeks without any color at all, and use a clear strengthening coat to keep nails healthy.

For the neutral look, there are tons of colors to choose from: white, beige, taupe, light pinks, the list goes on and on with the colors you can use to keep a neutral tone to your nails. My favorite is taupe because it is easy to apply without too many smudges showing up. Great brands include Essie, OPI and Love & Beauty (the beauty product line from Forever 21) for the best neutral colors.

Want to buck the trends for a few months and keep things neutral? Try a few subtle shades to keep your polish pretty. What's your favorite neutral shade?
