A year has passed since I started 2014 by predicting some nail polish trends for the new year. And now it is time to do so again for this new year. Sooo, what will the nail polish year of 2015 bring us polish addicts? What colors to wear? And what kind of finishes are to be the largest trends of 2015? These are my predictions, hopes and dreams for the nail polish year of 2015:
In 2015 I think the metallic finishes are coming back in a large scale. One hint is to look at the new spring collection of Chanel for 2015. The have launched a set of three different polishes and Paradisio is a green toned silver metallic polish. I think more brands will follow.
In 2015 we will also see a broad spectrum of velvet, or suede, polishes. This finish is not new in any way, but it has been a couple of years since the matte velvet finish was hot. Now it is coming back. One of my absolute favourite brands, Dance Legend, recently launched a line of velvet polishes. I got to get my hands on some of those. Take a look at Llarowe if you are interested in this perfect polish brand. You won’t get disappointed. And take a look at the amazing swatches at Lakoman.

In 2014 we saw a lot of dusty shades. Especially the dusty purple toned taupe color could be seen in a wide range of collections. The dusty color scale will be trendy even in 2015 I think. The purple taupe will still be around, followed by dusty green and blue.
Another oldie that is coming back is the trend of flake glitter polishes. Flakes were big a couple of years ago, especially the brand Nfu Oh had a line of stunningly beautiful flake polishes. Flakes have been quite absent in the nail polish world since, but recently Llarowe launched a collection of flakies, the Doctor Who Collection, and suddenly flakes are trendy again. So dust of your old flake polishes or buy some new ones, from Llarowe or another of all the other manufacturers that are to follow. See some more great swatches of the Doctor Who Collection at Set in Lacquer.

So, these are my predictions. Am I right? Who knows, the future will bring clarity in that matter.
What are your hopes and expectations for 2015?
