If you like it then you gotta put a ring on it

Ring Finger Manicure Trend

I’m really loving the return of the modern nail polish trend, which is when you paint your ring finger a different nail colour to the rest of your nails. But this time its back with a slight twist, simply using glitter or nail art/foils to add more of an individual distinction to the nail. The difference in nail polish needs to be subtle in order to tie the whole look together. Your ring finger shouldn't be too dissimilar to the others but still unique, as it needs to link back somehow to the main nail colour. Personally I like the more simplistic styles where the ring finger is a shade darker/lighter or if you add a touch of sparkle ☺ 

On my nails at the moment I am wearing Essence Colour and Go Nail polish in Out of My Mind (this dries super quick!!!) as my main nail colour with an Essence Nail Art Special Effects topper in Circus Confetti (a bit like Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday) on my ring finger :) I hope you like it ♥ ♥

What do you think?  Will you try out wearing different colours on your fingers?  What has been your favourite nail polish trend?

  1. I think this is always the best way to use nail art... just on one finger and my ring finger always tends to be the nice long finger nail! I still have to delve into the whole crackle nail varnish trend but i think i would always wear it on one finger to keep it classy! xxx

  2. I don't really know much about nail trends but I quite like this one! Is it both ring fingers on each hand or just the wedding ring finger on the left hand? I love your nails! I so wanna buy Essence stuff now. Sucks that it's not avaliable here. I ended up getting a free bottle of Seche Vite Dry Top Coat because I bought a Chinaglaze polish from eBay and they sent the Seche Vite by mistake. I complained and then they sent me my Chinaglaze after. Didn't have to return the 'mistake' bottle. I haven't used it yet though as I heard it goes gloopy in a month so I wanna save it for when I'm gonna paint my nails more. It's only like £5 on eBay so it's not that expensive, I don't think.

  3. Amy - I agree maybe having the crackle nail polish on all of your nails is a bit too much, the ring finger trend would be a perfect opportunity to give it a go :) x

    Bee -Thank you :) yes you should definitely try out Essence's range, i cant get over how good their nail varnishes are especially for the price!! Wow sometimes mistakes can benefit you a lot :) glad you got what you ordered in the end :) I wear the different colour on both of my ring fingers. I'd love to see a picture if you decided to give it ago :) x
