Fingernails are THE fashion accessory right now. Whether you are topping them with “caviar”, edging them with sparkle, or painting them fluorescent, your fingernails can be your statement piece for any occasion. The options are endless and there are many resources for you to use in order to give yourself a DIY manicure that goes well beyond applying two coats of polish. Polka Dot Tango has collected some inspiration for you to take a look at, going from extreme harajuku nails to simply stated. There is a look for everyone and that’s what makes this fashion trend so fun and possible! Let us know what fashion you like to show on your fingernails! You can tweet us @polkadottango, let us know on Facebook, or leave a comment below!

Caviar Nails are one of the newer trends out there. Customer reviews stated that these manicures are tons of fun for not so much a ton of time….if you catch my drift. Also, rumor is that you can create this look by getting a little creative using products from your local craft store. Here’s a wonderful tutorial I found on creating this same effect on YouTube.

Glitter, Glitter, GLITTER!!!! So thankful that I have a reason to keep glitter in my adult life. Glitter nail polish is the easiest way to dress up your nails and make them look fabulous without having the talent of a professional manicurist. What’s even better is that if you feel that having glitter on all of your fingernails is too much, now it is acceptable to only paint one of your nails to the max with glitter and such. See photo directly below.

Matte nail polish is H…O…T… right now.  It really gives your nails drama and sophistication and having matte nail polish alone will make an impact. Here’s another rumor for you: If you don’t want to spend money on matte nail polish, a little birdie told me you can add just a bit of cornstarch to your top coat, mix it in, paint and PRESTO!!! You have matte nails! Now how cool are you?

Pointed nails are a hit right now, but I have noticed that only the brave (or ferocious) have the courage to rock them. They definitely give the wearer a fiercer look and for some reason, the more muted ones seem very mature to me. Maybe this style kind of reminds me of women in the 80’s who were magazine editors or villians who had power.

Love that the middle nail has no white on it. Makes the design not overpower the shape of the nail.

ROAR!

Patterns, pansies, and prints oh my! I’m not too sure how many people have the steady hand, the eye site, or the patience for these lovely nails, but more power to those that do! How much fun they are! Now that Sally Hansen has come out with the press on nail polish, designs like these are a little more realistic to the average nail polisher.

Reminds me of some Betsey Johnson prints.

Fashion Friday: Spring/Summer color trend- Mint

Mint is not only sweet to eat, but very sweet to wear this spring.

This spring’s fashion trend is being reinvented from this past trend that was popular among these iconic women below in the 50’s and 60’s.

There are plenty of minty fashion available at any price this season; from Forever 21 to Vera Wang. Polka Tango put together a few outfit ideas incorporating this new color trend.

Here’s a small snap shot of my outfit today that was put together around my ruffle mint top I wore in honor of this Fashion Friday post.

Color Block is the New Color Black

Color Blocking is awesome and has so many possibilities!

Color blocking is the trend to follow right now. It makes each element of your outfit pop and is sure to instantly put you in a fantastic mood! You can take this trend to the max by using bright solid color combinations or sedate it by pairing up colors with neutral tones. Check out our Polyvore account (polkadottango) to see more of our sets and let us know what you think is the ultimate fashion trend of the moment!

Fashion Friday: Blazers

With winter weather quickly leaving us and warmer weather on the horizon, this is the perfect time to get use out of those blazers hanging up in the closet. They don’t keep you warm in the winter and are too hot for summer, so spring weather is perfect. They come in so many colors, patterns, and styles, it’s hard to just choose one. They are completely versatile, in which they can be worn dressed up with heels or dressed down with a casual t-shirt and flats. (Or even shorts as you can see below) I pulled a few photos from the internet to get the ideas flowing since they will soon be packed away for the summer.
