Can’t decide whether you want silver or gold accents on your nails? It’s simple- go for both! We’re loving how minimalist yet beautiful this nail art looks. It adds a bit of sparkle and radiates festive vibes. You can also try mixed metal nails in other simple designs and patterns.

Colourful Swirls

Swirl nail art

This abstract swirl design is giving us major retro vibes! Not only do these look super cool and funky, but they can also be recreated easily. Use a neutral coloured base, and add colourful swirls on top to achieve this look.

Subtle Florals


Floral nail art is nothing new, but this trend making a comeback once again. This nail art design is never going out of style, and it’s the use of pastel shades that makes the look stand out. If bright colours aren’t your thing, you can instead opt for subtle, muted shades like these with pretty floral designs.

Mettalic Tips

Metallic nails

Metallic tips look classy, and while they aren’t over-the-top, they are sure to grab attention! It’s a fun, metallic twist to a classic French manicure, and we are loving how trendy they look!

Fruit- Inspired Nail Art


How cute does this nail design look? This fun nail art design is easy to recreate and adds a playful vibe to your look. Opt for bright colours while using fruit-inspired nail art designs, and you’re all set!

Pro Tip: Apply a top-coat on your gel manicure to keep it looking fresh and shiny for a long time. Even if you stain the nails with turmeric, you can always rub off the transparent nail polish and reapply to make it look as good as new again.
