A less-is-more movement is sweeping fashion and beauty, in which makeup is a bit softer (if not non-existent) and fashion is more streamlined (with celebs like Jessica Alba and Blake Lively recently wearing monochromatic looks). And the latest celebrity nail looks are following suit.
Artsy expressions are still being worn but in a more understated way. Full-on, patterned neon gives way to negative space designs, and loud hues are replaced with creamy pastel shades decked with metallic accents. As fashion-forward stars know, this wave of styling isn't about going normcore—it's about playing up nails while simultaneously going softer.
