Rings ‘n Things: A Bohemian’s Guide to Hands

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Temple chapter.

The term boho-chic is refers to bohemian and hippie styles that may encompass earthy colors, vintage charms, or organic material. When you coordinate boho-chic jewelry and nails to match your outfit it will add on another layer to your bohemian vibe. This is what fashion is all about! The fun part isn’t the trends but the act of self-expression and an exclusive way of dressing and accessorizing.

This is a brilliant concept, right? Of course it is!  To top it off lets add on some pretty rings for double the eye candy.

Sets of Color:

Experimenting with jewelry can be tons of fun! Here at Her Campus Temple we challenge you to try out the boho-chic ring and nail trend. Finding bohemian inspired rings or jewels is quite easy to do. You can find an affordable set of rings on Etsy. As for the nails, for beginners it is best to start off with rounded nails and white nail polish as a clean base because white polish is simple yet bold enough to hold its own. China Glaze, is a great, inexpensive white nail polish which can be purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply Store. Multiple rings add in a playful variety that will attract many admirers.

Moody Queen:

All women have those days when their closet wardrobe just seems bland. You rack your brain trying to figure out what will make your outfit of the day pop because it’s missing one ingredient. Sounds familiar right? Well fret no longer! Let’s try a nifty knuckle ring with mint nail polish on stiletto nails. Just mentioning stilettos sounds sexy so, why not go for it!?  Mint nail polish is a modernistic staple color to keep handy. Pairing the mint colored stiletto nails with the knuckle ring will give the look some edge.

Seasons of Beauty:

The approaching summer season is bound to be a hot one. Our accessories have to be noteworthy and our nails have to be on point! Her Campus Temple has got you covered. Try a silver polish with squared nails and a midi ring. Silver polish will add a metallic element to complement and reflect the sparkle from your bling. Get your silver polish at Zoya, because what girl doesn’t love a bit a sparkle?  Your ring should of course be encrusted with pretty jewels. Try this one from Etsy.
