Do Rihanna’s Bare Nails Mean Something?

RihannaBareNails 527x540 Do Rihannas Bare Nails Mean Something?

For Halloween Rihanna chose to go with bare nails as shown in the image above. Over at Style (I think it’s Style, can’t find the story anymore, so incredibly maddening–editors you know of what I speak!) there are musings that perhaps this is pointing to the end of the in-your-face nail trend as we know it. The editor infers that Rihanna’s manicure lines up with nail trends shown on runways of late, which are all about bareness.

The thing is, runways beauty trends for a while now have been rather conservative. Whether hair, makeup or nails, designers have chosen to go with relatively staid looks, letting the clothes, shoes and bags make the statement. Most aren’t making a living hawking bags not nail polish after all! As for Rihanna, while her nails are ”natural,” it’s a pretty safe bet they’re fake and just a few days ago she had them painted Vixen red, a perennial fall classic. 

That being said, there has been a move away from super complex designs and certainly 3-D nail art is long behind us as a nail trend except for the diehards (and bless their hearts).  Still and all, the nail game is far from dead. More like steady as she goes and if that translate to a breather from every two-bit celebrity and some nail polish company collaborating on a “new” color, no one is going to mind that at all.
