Even if your usual nail routine is just a quick file and buff, that doesn’t mean your daughter doesn’t want to experiment with new fashions and nail trends for 2017. We checked with Elle Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar to learn about this coming season’s biggest nail trends—as seen on the spring fashion runways—so we can help you translate the hottest trends into elementary-school ready manis. Here are some of our favorite kid-friendly fashion forward ideas.
1. Glitter Is Making a Comeback
Your daughter loves glitter, right? Um, duh. Pretty much every kid in the world loves something sparkly or shiny to play with—especially the fashion-forward kid who wants to make a statement. Well, moms and girls can rejoice this season, since glitter is making a comeback for all ages! Elle Magazine calls the trend “grown up glitter,” meaning that you and your girl can get matching manis and both be on-trend!
2. Rainbow Nails on Parade
When you were younger, did you ever kill an afternoon with your friends by painting alternate nails or each nail a different color? Now your daughter can do the same all while staying fashionable. Expect to see all kinds of nail colors mingling in harmony this year. Multi-color mixing is in, and your daughter will love it. Grab every nail polish color you’ll need from our “Finding Dory” 18-piece nail polish set, and your daughter will be all set to paint her hands like a rainbow.
3. Metallics Are Cool!
The verdict is in—edgy, shiny, pretty metallics are all the rage this spring! Try the Snow White Silver shade from our Disney Princess 18-pack polish set to perfectly capture the look. The kit also comes with shiny mixed colors, like metallic-based pink, purple, and blue for a different take on the trend.
4. Sparkly Nail Art
Little golden beads or gemstone art can be seen adorning nails all over this year. Emulate the look with the lively, cute, and funny nail decals from our Emoji’s Ultimate Nail Set. Peelable stickers mean your girl can choose her favorite emoji to express herself with fashionable nail art.
5. Multicolor Accents
Harper’s Bazaar reports that black accents are all the rage on spring runways this season. Black stripes and swirls look chic and edgy, but can easily be reimagined in your daughter’s favorite bright color to give the trend a little softness. Instead of a cold, black accent, try a deep but pretty color, like the dark purple polish from our “Elena of Avalor” 4-pack nail polish set with an Elena carrying tin! The dark colors will emulate the runway trend, but with a touch of softness for your little one. Bonus: it’s bubble gum scented!

By helping her play with the best nail trends for 2017, you can encourage her fashion interests and help her grow up into the cool girl she’s meant to be.
