nail trends_playful dotted mani by Oksana Fedio

Dotted manicure by Oksana Fedio at Tips Nail Bar

This time the Lipstick League is curious about your manicure preferences. What’s your current favourite nail trend?

What we put on our nails is more about personal preference than anything in beauty and fashion on the runways each season. I like a simple, pointed oval nail, with minimal nail art and more often than not a playful, vivid shade of orange, coral, fuchsia or berry. But I fall for something unexpected, like a sweet girly pink, or pale mint green, every time Manigeek sister does a post.

And despite my belief that less is best because nails are small canvases, I love my dotted mani (opening image) by Oksana Fedio at Tips Nail Bar. I especially adore white in the summer. And I can't let go of the scalloped mani just yet. So a white scalloped mani is going to happen again. Or maybe I'll go for more of a chevron shape?

But more than anything, I'ma keep going to Tips Nail Bar, where I know everyone is paid well for their time and skills, and happy.
