Lately, there have been a lot of additions to the fashion world. Even more so if that is true in the world of nail arts. Just a few years earlier people weren’t that much into the whole idea of putting that much effort into nails. However, with the rise of newer designs and glamorous looks folks had to get on this bandwagon.
A more subtle entry into the nail art world is the new look called the “Baby Boomer Nails.”
BB Nails, also known as French ombré or French fade, is a modern twist on the classic French manicure. And while that may not sound too appealing, wait till you get to see them in action.
We are not trying to imply that the original wasn’t up to standards, but there does come a time when every style must take a leap. With the BB nails that just happened.
While in the traditional style you would get a light pink base with defined tips, contrasting the pink, here the pink is blended with white, usually, and together a smooth transition is made. So, in essence, you replicate a gradient effect for the selected colors.
The B Boomers are taking over, everywhere you look on Instagram you will find them. Many stylists have seen the overwhelming demand of this look from their customers. Now when you look at the BBN, you can tell why they are so popular. Not only do they look adorable on their own but, the nail art works as a pretty great canvas for improvisation.
The design is classy yet fun, and you can choose where its inclination goes from that point. Looking at the Baby Boomer, you know that you can pull it off as a working woman or dazzle it up a bit to go for a night out on the town.
For those that were wondering about the origins of the name, we can’t help you there as this style go so popular so fast no one really knows why it was called as such. Perhaps it has something to do with the default base being baby pink. Another theory is that this nail art is kind of a throwback to the demure manicures of old that were very popular in the early 1950s to the late 60s.
The look was polished and classy back then, now the new version sees the addition of fun and playful to the mix. Making it appeal to a much broader demographic.
Even though the style made its recovery almost a couple of years back. It has been only a few months that the internet has blown up with BB nail art. Have a look at the Pinterest search for the art.
When asked various stylist why gals are going for the BB nails they have multiple theories that why that is. The top thing that attracts most women to the baby boomer nails is the versatility of this look, as we have pointed out before. Therefore, the look will go well with almost any dress or outfit that you can put together.
On top of that, a few of the specialist had heard their costumer express that this look seems the most natural out of all the nail arts. And women have even gone so far to request for BB nails for their wedding manicure.
The design’s execution isn’t as simple as the look might have you believe. A lot of skis goes into making the fade look as natural as possible. Otherwise, you can have a pretty awkward looking finish. So even though the design isn’t easy to excite it is here to stay, and by the looks of things, it isn’t going out of style anytime soon.
