StyleBlazer Approved: Paws Up And Clear Claws Out For Spring 2012's Translucent Nail Trend

Currently Trending: Paws Up And Clear Claws Out (Translucent Nails Were A Hit On The Spring 2012 Runways)

Nails had some of the biggest moments last year with trends like ombre’, crackle, colorful gems and more— it looks like 2012 is going to be just as innovative.

Everyone wants in on this nail craze so fashion designers have been pulling out show-stopping claws at their runway shows. One of the spring 2012  nail trends that we are excited about is the crystal clear nail. Nothing new over the sun, but clear nails are making a comeback and they are better than ever. Clear lucite nails stood out in shows like Alexandre Herchcovitch and 3.1 Philip Lim – who included stenciled prints for added glamor (pictured above). Even those who are not fans of fake nails, can simply opt for clear polish.

Remembering that old phrase, “less is more,” well we predict clear (the new nail trend) to take over this year. Indulge in the gallery below.

    I usually try to be fashion forward as well as being mostly drawn to old school and vintage. I doubt if I ever try this look out. I looks unfinished and weird even for my taste.
