We are entering the summer season (well, most of our readers are) and together with the latest fashion, makeup and hair trends, we cannot neglect another very important aspect of every girl's beauty routine: nail trends. Nail trends, especially during the summer, are a lot of fun, and being up-to-date with the latest nail trends is almost a must.

We interviewed Ariana Pierce, owner of and talked about the latest nail trends, colors, new and original ideas for Summer 2014, and about her company, Superstar Nail Lacquer. Superstar Nail Lacquer is loved for its "green" qualities, glamorous hues and great price point. Offering rich girl beauty on a real girls budget, Ariana and her fashion savvy brands have become media darlings constantly featured by major outlets and magazines such as Glamour, Uptown, BET Beauty Lounge, Essence, OK, Twist, InStyle, Life & Style and more.

Asian Beauty Secrets

How did you get started in nail art?

My love for nail polish grew into a love for nail art by wanting to experiment with the variety of colors by my lacquer line, Superstar Nail Lacquer. I loved painting my nails every week, but I would get bored painting them one solid color. I decided to experiment by first adding simple designs like flowers or gluing on crystals. Once I got the hang of nail art, I began to experiment with more complicated designs. I would let my imagination take over by doing 3-D art, geometric designs, and designer inspired nails.

You mentioned your own nail lacquer line 'Superstar Nail Lacquer' can you tell us more about it?

Superstar Nail lacquer is an eco-chic, vegan friendly, and toxin free nail lacquer that was created for the woman on the go. I was inspired to create the lacquer due to my love for fashion. When I created the line, there were no nail polish companies that matched the clothes and inspiration that came from the runway. So I decided to make Superstar Nail Lacquer a fun and fast drying lacquer that made every woman who wore it feel like a celebrity. The everyday woman may never have a stylist, or walk a red carpet, or attend an award show, but with colors like 'My Stylist Loves Pink', 'Walk the Red Carpet', and 'Oscar Bronze' they are able to have the life of their dreams.

Whether you are in high school, college, or on your career path, the fast-drying aspect of our lacquer is perfect for the woman who may not have time to wait on her nails to dry. It's fun, easy-to-apply lacquer that gets the right kind of attention.

What is your favorite nail polish color?

My favorite nail polish color is currently 'Paparazzi Pink' by Superstar Nail Lacquer because it's hot, vibrant, yet very feminine and classy.

What are the top Summer nail trends we'll be seeing this season?

The top summer nail trends we'll be seeing this season are:

1. 3-D floral art is one of my favorite trends. It's bold and can be done with flowers, jewels and a variety of decals.

2. Ombre nails are perfect for summer and can be done with 2-3 bright colors.

3. The Half moon effect done with black and white is the perfect summer trend.

4. Matte nails are everything this coming season. Try Superstar Nail Lacquer's "It Girl Orange" for a bright and matte look.

5. Aztec inspired nails are one of the hottest trends for the summer. This design can be done with a variety of colors and is so much fun to experiment with.

What is your favorite nail style ever, the one you still like and wear regardless of the season or trend?

I love to add a twist to the traditional French manicure no matter what the season's hottest trends are. I love adding bright colors to the tips of my nails.

What is the nail polish color every girl should buy for Summer 2014?

The color every girl must have in her lacquer collection is Rising Star Razzberry by Superstar Nail Lacquer. It is a vibrant pink with lots of glitter. The best thing about this color is that you do not have to add anything to it because it alone has the perfect sparkle. Also, it is not too much for those who are conservative, and it is perfect for women of all ages.
