This season the bow has made a massive comeback. These days, you won’t just find bows on the heads of childish Disney characters and they are no longer the emblem for girlish style. Instead, bows have been revived in all manner of shapes, sizes and varieties to become the new “must have” accessory for spring and summer. In sync with the fashion and nail industry’s preoccupation with bows we bring you this Step By Step Nail Art Inspiration which is perfect for October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Adding a bow to a nail is a super simple way to update the most ordinary of looks. Whichever way you choose to style this trend, be it girlish, glitter or gothic – one thing you can be sure of is its staying power so get in the loop and tie it up for nail art that truly stands out!
Stay in tune with our website and Facebook pages for the launch of a new Bow Nail Art course from Magnetic!
