Not sure what baby boomer nails are? They are also called “French Fade” and they are a twist on the classic French tips. Baby boomer nails have the same white tips as a French manicure but with a more gradual fade from pink to white.

Tonal Ombré Nail Trends
Tonal ombre nails were everywhere last year, and that trend will continue this year, especially with shades from the same color family. Pick your favorite colors and don’t be afraid to try it for yourself. This is our favorite design and you can wear it all year long!
Return of the Matte Nails
Matte nails should absolutely be on your mind for your next trip to the salon. They are trendy and sleek, sophisticated and a more subtle option for professional babes. Choose your favorite color and ask for a matte topcoat for an elegant nail design!
Red Nails Love
Just as red lipstick, red nails are a classic beauty choice. The symbolic power of red is undeniable. Love, power, danger!
We have a hot red shade every year, and 2020 is no exception. Cherry red is the “star color,” this year, and a highly requested shade in all nail salons. Also, this is the perfect DIY color. All you need is an excellent red polish and the patience to let them dry all the way. Here are our recommendations:
Neutral Nail Trends
Elegant neutral shades will never go out of style. We all know that less is more. You don’t always need bold and bright nail polish to make a statement. Sometimes the lightest of colors can make the best and biggest impressions.
You should know that “neutral” doesn’t mean all beige. Neutral colors go with a variety of outfits, no matter the season and will also accentuate your skin tone. This means you should take your skin color into account before choosing to paint your nails.
Celestial Cat Eye Magnetic Nails
Cat-eye nails are taking over Instagram. There are 3D, 5D and 9D Magnetic Cat Eye Nails. This amazing trend involves a metallic polish running through the centre of the nail, creating an effect that resembles a cat’s eye. If you’re baffled by this trend, we don’t blame you. Re-creating the look requires some unique nail tools.
First, apply the basecoat and paint your nails preferably with a black color as a”background” for a WOW effect. Next, you’ll need a special nail polish designed for this trend that contains a lot of metallic pigments to paint over your base colour. The key to getting that cat eyes effect is moving the metallic pigments on your nail bed in your desired direction using a small nail stick magnet. Depending on how you point the magnet, the shape of the metallic polish will change.
If you want to recreate this look at home here are some of the best products on the market. If this look seems difficult you can always get this at any nail salon that has Cat Eye Nail Polish available. Keep in mind that if you want to use these products at home you will need a UV/LED Lamp.
This trend goes beyond the 3D effect and some nail polish brands launched 5D and 9D Chameleon Cat Eye Collections. These have a bolder Cat Eye effect and your nails will look absolutely AMAZING!
This is the 5D Chameleon Cat Eye Effect.
And last but not least….THE AMAZING 9D Cameleon Cat Eye Effect.
