'Hands down' top nail trends for 2019

There is no doubt that trends are already being set for 2019, from flowy hairstyles to new kicks on our feet. One trend that has become extremely popular for us ladies is manicured nails.

One thing most of us girls love is having our nails done. They can range from a simple nail color to sparkly designs such as jewels and glitter. Instagram and Pinterest have plenty of nail ideas perfect for any season or occasion. Surprisingly, some can even look like teeth. There are so many styles and colors to choose from. Which of these ideas would you consider on your next trip to the nail salon?

French Tip. Going on a date? Shopping with friends? Even the park is a perfect place

to go show these beauties off. They can be designed with any color. Plus you can add a stripe of glitter just to make them POP!

Ombre. What if you can't choose just one color? Ombre nails may be just what you're looking for! Two tone tops with dark-washed jeans will bring these nails out. Or you can pair them with a cute dress, a cardigan, and some ankle boots this winter.

Matte or Glossy. These two types are essential to any nail design. But what are their differences? Matte nails cease to shine, a quite simple design for when you want to go to a gathering or a walk in the park. With this design, dark shades are a go. Glossy nails give a slight reflection. This is more dressy and chic for when you want to look like a boss. Bright and medium shades fit the glossy type perfectly.

Jewels. These unique nails have been trending all over the internet lately, especially when it comes to the longer side of nails. They are extravagant and luxurious. Many celebrities and Instagramers influence them, as well. So if you really want to be the center of attention, jewels are perfect for you.

Teeth? I know. I know. Who would consider having teeth on their nails? But these nail artists have got it all under control. Literally. If you want to go over-the-top, try this crazy, cool design. It could be fun for Halloween or career day at school (maybe if you want to be a dentist!). It's a little wild, but who hasn't ever had a wild experience? What style will you be rocking this year? Will you go simple? Or will you get creative?
