Let’s be honest, January is pretty bleak. It’s absolutely freezing, it gets dark by 5 pm, payday was a lifetime ago and I’m so deep into dry Jan, I can’t even remember what wine tastes like *weeps*. When it’s put like that, it’s no surprise that smiley face nails have become our newest obsession. The perfect antidote to doom and gloom.
Yellow is the classic – think 80s acid house smiley – on a natural nail background (ideal for keeping your mani looking fresh too), but there really are no rules with this one. Loved the rainbow nails trend from last year? Get a different colour on every digit. Go with an accent nail if you’re feeling subtle or mismatch nail art if you’re feeling extra. Basically, do you. It’s meant to make you smile, remember.
