As in previous seasons, also now each nail can be painted in different color and also in different style.
When it comes to shape, newest tendencies are quite different form the last seasons. First of all, now short or medium nails are considered as fashionable. Long nails are not so common, although they still appear in some fashion events and magazines. The shapes of nails, however, can be very different. From pointy to flat and round. Actually very creative and even unusual shapes are now trendy.
Mostly manicure fashion tendencies appears in different styles and textures. One of the hottest trend is upgraded french manicure. That means the nail itself is in different color than the edge of it, like in typical french manicure, but the difference is that there can be very different colors used not only pink and white. For example, very common nail style is the same color for whole nail, but the edge is glanced and the whole nail is matted. Another common example is natural colored nail with shiny edge. Just two bright colors can be used as well.
