Long gone are the days when we waltz into our humble nail salon and ask for the classic red or the modest french manicure. No longer are we limited to just a few simple colours to get us through the day. Now, Hong Kong manicures are celebrated for being so pretty with colour upon colour upon texture upon finish.

Here at BloomMe, you already know we love our unique and trending nail colours and obsess over all the twists and turns of designs that the spas throw at us. Now it is time to focus in on our newest obsession (soon to be your newest obsession): matte and metallic nails.

Black Matte with some Gothic Metallic Features

You can never go wrong with a black matte, but why not kick the design up a notch with a cool gothic twist? By combining some silver and black bling with your classic black matte finish, you’ll find that your nails are suddenly the centre focus of your Friday night outfit. Paired with some chunky and funky jewellery, this manicure is a throwback to the gothic/punk era of the 90s (did you know the 90s are back in fashion? Hurray!)

 

Metallic Splatter

Jackson Pollock was an artistic genius, and soon your nails can also be their own piece of art with a matte gradient matched with a metallic splatter. Reserved for only the best nail artists (and luckily, Hong Kong has plenty of them) this chic design works best with a soft gradient of different colours and a single metallic over the top.

Metallic Tape with a Matte Base

Metallic tape can be used on nails in so many different ways, and one way to make it absolutely pop even more is to contrast it against a matte background. Use it as a faux french tip, a half moon, or even the reverse half moon. All are welcome, and all are amazing. Check out these different ways of getting a French Manicure done, and make sure to try it with your new matte and metallic obsession.

Green Matte with Gold or Rose Gold

Your friends will be green with envy with this stunning combination. By combining a soft green matte colour (we love a forest or an olive green) with some gold or rose gold, this nail art design is innovative and crazy chic. Perfect for the girl who loves to be decked out in gold rings, we love both subtle bling look of a few studs, to the extravagant golden-galore look.

Orange Matte with a Pop Of Gold

Baby, in the summertime that’s where orange is best! Citrus colours in a matte finish just absolutely pop when paired with gold metallics. A chrome feature nail followed by some gold glitter and an orange finish is all you need to keep the good vibrations going this summer. A great combination for those who love to wear navy clothes, orange and gold will complete your outfit in no time.

 

Matte, Metallic, and a picture

Last but in no way least, is the winning combination of the matte base, metallic accent, and one big feature nail depicting something you love. Did you know that a few salons across Hong Kong offer laser printing on nails? Bring in a photo of your significant other, your pet, or even Liam Hemsworth, and have their face smiling back at you every time you look down at your nails.
