We asked her to share the 5 biggest nail trends for the season since, well, she would know! Feast your eyes on some must-try nail ideas… 1. Red Carpet Trend: Classic Reds and Vamps You’ve probably noticed all the celebrities with classic red nails lately, and they won’t be stopping anytime soon — it’s red carpet season! “With the Oscars coming up, we will be seeing a mix of more classic looks on celebrities such as reds and dark colors,” says Morales. “Essie makes a beautiful shade of red called A List, which is a classic, and a great dark shade, Velvet Voyage.” No Place Like Chrome by Essie 2. Street Trend: Metallic “No Place like Chrome by Essie is a great metallic silver that clients just love,” Morales told us. Try it when you’re craving something sparkly. 3. Salon Trend: Plum Feeling purple? “Essie Luxedo is a favorite in the salon due to its striking deep hue,” Morales says. 4. New-Again Trend: French Manicure This one is gaining popularity again. “I always use Essie’s base coat followed by one coat of Adore-a-Ball by Essie as the pink, then Blanc by Essie for the tip,” Morales shared. After that, “Apply another coat of Adore-a-Ball and finish with Seche Vite top coat.” I’m With the Band by NCLA 5. Celebrity Trend: Coral “Beyonce just rocked her nails out with NCLA’s I’m with the Band, which is a deep coral/orange polish. If you can’t find it near you, there are a few other colors similar to it that I would choose, like Macbeth by butter LONDON or Not So Safe Orange, a limited edition shade by Le Métier De Beauté.” What do you think of Jade Morales’ choices?
