Whether you credit Instagram or #ManiMonday, manicures officially stole the spotlight as the most popular beauty trend for 2012. We count the indulgences as a minor escape from our hectic schedules and day-to-day life, and clearly everyone else feels the same! It goes without saying that a fresh set of polish and perfectly groomed fingers seem to always start the week off right. Manicures trends have altered through the generations – where red nails were once the go-to, eclectic nail art has now taken center attention. With the insurgence of nail foil, gel polish, and creative, at home DIY projects for your tips, it’s clearly we let our fingers do the talking in 2012.
