Get The Look | Spring 2014 Nail Trends

Want to know what's hot off the catwalk in nail trends for Spring 2014? At New York Fashion Week we saw some serious sizzling trends in the world of nail art. Think pretty pastels and nail art with delicate designs, here are a few of the hottest looks straight off the catwalk.

White Nails
Remember doodling all over your nails with Tipex in school? Well, this Spring White is the 'new' Black. If its good enough for the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Anniston then its good enough for us. White polish can be sheer though, so be sure to build up a few layers and top it off with a glossy top coat if you want to stay on top of the trend. Try White On from Sally Hansen or OPI's Alpine Snow.

Subtle Ombre
The ombre trend dominated the fashion world last year but this year it's back, in the form of nail art. Ombre is a gradual transition of 2 or more colours and when used on the nails it looks absolutely fierce. NYFW saw some serious ombre looks and when paired with some pretty pastel shades it looks bang on trend. Click here to see some awesome ombre nail art.

Pastel Nails
This season pastel shades seem to be everywhere. From pale pinks to mint greens, it seems the pastel shade trend just isn't going away.. and with good reason. Light pastel shades seem to suit a range of skintones, so there's no excuse not to try it. Think pale lilac's like OPI's Do you lilac it? or cool minty greens like Revlons Minted.

A Hint Of Glitter
Who doesn't love a bit of sparkle.. especially on the nails. The catwalks in NYC were all over the glitter nail trend this season. Let's not over-do it on the glitter though, this trend is all about doing it in moderation! A touch of sparkle on the nail looks really well when placed in a small area just above the cuticle. Full on glitter nails can just remind us of the festive season. Limit your use of polish ladies and you will be guaranteed to become a trendsetter.

Delicate Nail Art
Less is more apparently where this seasons nail art is concerned. Simple, chic, minimalist designs are key. Don't throw away that black nail art pen just yet ladies because this trend isn't going anywhere soon! Just think black and white stripes for that on-trend look.

The Half Moon
Probably my favourite of them all, the half moon nail trend. This look is pretty simple to achieve and looks amazing. It was heavily done on the catwalks this year and is set to continue to take the nail art scene by storm! Click here to check out some pretty cool half moon nail designs.

Which trend will you be flaunting this Spring?
