All About New Nail Trends

Hey Darlings! Meygan here and I’ve been obsessed with all these hot new nail trends. A manicure is such a fun and easy way to shake up your look! I love having nail parties with my friends – it’s the best time for girl talk! Let’s check out what’s new in the nail world. Don’t forget to tell me what’s on your nails!

  • Statement Nail: Paint four finger nails the same color. Paint your ring finger any color you choose. In this picture, a fabulous MGA Social Media Manager rocks a bright turquoise look against shimmery black – bold and beautiful!
  •  Have you seen magnetic nail polish? It’s a special kind of nail polish made with magnetic particles that you layer over a polish base. The nail polish usually comes with a magnet. Paint a thick coat of the polish on your finger tip, and then hold the magnet above it for 10 seconds. While you wait, the magnet attracts the particles and pulls them into the design. Cool, right?! Check out an MGA Marketing Manager and her awesome chocolate brown magnetic mani!
  • Shattered nails are all the rage and can be easily done by painting over a base coat with “shatter” or “crackle” polish. I’m loving hot neon color combos, like hot pink and electric blue, or something more demure like baby pink with silver over the top. Check out an MGA Copywriter’s shattered pink and black nails – so punk rock!
  • Are you looking to really make a statement? Look no further than the new “caviar mani”, or as our designer calls it, the “bubblegum” mani! Get this look by painting a base coat over your nails, and while it’s still wet, dipping your nail into tiny pearlescent beads (available at craft stores). Rumor has it beauty stores will be coming out with kits to do this soon. We love this look – it really pops!

Which of these nail looks do you like best? Have you tried any of them? Tell me what you think!

Hot Trend: How to Wear Colored Denim

 

Hi Bratzies!

Colors are in this season and they’re popping up all over the place… even in denim! Celebrities like Rihanna and Fergie have been spotted rockin’ colorful jeans in magazines and models have been strutting them down the runways. I’ll share with you the secret to sporting this stylish trend and looking fabulous!

Blue jeans will never go out of style. Whether they’re boot cut, straight leg, flared or skinny, denim is here to stay! But why stop at blue when there are so many colors in the rainbow? This season jeans are showing up in a variety of colors from vibrant red to sunny yellow and they’re easy to dress up or down.  I like dressing up my pink skinny jeans with a metallic top and dark vest.

I love wearing my pink skinny jeans!

Here are a few of my style tips for wearing colored denim:

  • Pick the right fit: Most colored denim are skinny jeans, but I’ve also seen them in boot cut and straight leg styles. Pick the cut and size that compliments your body. You don’t want to be uncomfortable or look like a brightly colored fashion faux pas!
  • Play with patterns: Wear yellow denim with a leopard top or coral denim with a flower print top. As long as the pattern contains one similar color to the denim you’ll look fashionable and fierce.
  • Structured blazers: Pair your denim with a blazer to create a polished yet fun look. A white and navy striped top with a navy blazer goes great with red denim.
  • Neutrals: You can’t go wrong with light rosy pink jeans, a white top and khaki blazer. Or you can try berry-purple jeans and black blouse.
  • Color blocking: Color blocking is still very in and works well with this trend. Pick two colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel and you’re guaranteed a perfect match. Royal blue jeans and an orange top go great together.

 Now go on and be colorful with these tips in mind! Have fun with it and never be afraid to be daring with your style.

Neon isn’t just for the runway!

Hi dollz!

Jade here welcoming you to our brand new Trends Blog! I’m so excited to be the first to post on here! I’ve got your spring fashion forecast—it includes heavy showers of bright fun color! Neon is in for spring and we’re totally rockin’ this trend from head to toe. We found ways to incorporate neon into our hair, shoes and clothes. We don’t mind turning heads with our shockingly bright outfits! This trend was spotted all over the runways of New York Fashion Week and now all the fashion mags and blogs are buzzing about it.

I'm not afraid to go neon!

While we are brave and bold, we know not everyone shares our same level of passion for fashion. Since I am the fashion guru of the group I made a list of some other ways you can sport the neon trend without going all out!

1. Nails: Paint your fingers and toes a neon shade of pink, green, yellow or orange!

2. Jewelry: Add some funk to your look with a bright necklace, earrings or bracelet.

3. Shoes: Lace your sneakers up with neon laces. You’ll stand out!

4. Layers: Wear a neutral tone like black and layer a neon tank top underneath. You’ll show just a peek of neon without going over-the-top.

5. Hair: Imitate our neon hair by adding a few neon hair extensions. Get the clip -on kind so you can switch the color anytime you want without damaging your locks.

Stay Stylish,
