There's something about having shiny, pretty nails that makes me feel and look great. As soon as O walk out of the salon after getting a manicure, I feel like I'm ready to rule the world. Nope, I'm not exaggerating. While 2020 was all about painting your own nails, this year we're getting back to booking appointments with your fav manicurists.
So, if you're just as excited to get your nails painted then these are some of the trending designs to look out for. Screenshot these to show at your next appointment and you'll be the most stylish gal around town.
Negative space nail art has been trending for a while and it looks super fun and playful. You can pick bright and poppy colours that are perfect for spring and apply them asymmetrically all over. Remember to leave some gap between them to create that negative space effect.
Another nail art design that looks super cute and is relatively easier to achieve is the ombre effect. Just pick your fav colour and go from light to dark in the same pallet. Choose shades like pink, orange, red or yellow to go with the sunny weather outside.
We've all tried French tips at least once in our lives but 2021 has a new version for all of us. Instead of the classic white, try colourful tips on all your fingers. Living through a pandemic is tough enough as it is we can definitely make it more cheery and vibrant.
Jelly nails are colourful nail paints that look almost transparent. They're super edgy and really in vogue ATM. You can get a single shade on all your nails or get different ones on each tip- they both look fabulous. Even if you walk out of your house wearing your comfy mom jeans and a tank and these nails will just elevate your whole look.
Butterflies are a huge fad this season and we're totally on board. After butterfly eyeliners, butterfly nails are the latest 'it' trend and it's perfect for spring. The flowers are blooming and the butterflies are out, let your nails feel a part of it too.
Checkered nails are for all those of you who want a more hipster aesthetic. These require a lot of precision and a whole lot of time so be prepared before heading to the salon. What we love about them is that they're so versatile and will go easily with dresses and tees alike.
So, ready to nail it?
