It’s time to say bye-bye to boring and hello to a levelled-up manicure. Channel your inner artist, starting at your nails and instead of opting for the same nude shade you’ve requested the past ten visits, walk a little on the wild side.

The time is nigh to try something new, whether that be a colour, shape, style or design. After all, it doesn’t have to result in a long-term relationship, but whoever sees your claws will want to put a ring on it with this inspo! We’ve rounded up the hottest nail trends for you and cool accessories to match, all that’s left to do is head to the salon with one of these inspiration pics in tow.

Tort Nails

Say hello to the ultimate cool girl manicure. Tortoise shell nails are trending, and they are the perfect combination of fun and chic. The rich warm brown tones make this nail trend the ultimate autumn accessory and matched with a print coordinated phone case you’ll be receiving compliments left right and centre.

“No polish”, polish

Move over “no makeup, makeup”, “no polish”, polish is the new cool!  Let’s be real, we’ve all stalked the street style of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber at least once and it seems these IT girls cannot get enough of this nail trend. Opt for a translucent pink wash of colour and some chunky gold rings for that barely there look that still packs a punch.

Coloured French tips

While a French mani is a timeless classic why not switch it up with a fun twist? Go for fun, alternating neon tips for an added splash of colour. Or, if you’re feeling a little less adventurous go for a unanimous colour across all – a perfect option for those who struggle to stray from their usual nude. Pair with a white bucket hat for look that is sure to make a statement on your Instagram feed.

Rich Brown!

Let’s be honest, nude nails are never not effortlessly chic but why not sway to the deeper end of the spectrum and opt for a rich brown. The new staple neutral dominated the runaways of fashion houses such as Balmain, Mugler and Nina Ricci at Paris Fashion Week 2020. The look is simple yet totally on trend. Fore more, try pairing the colour with a chain link bracelet for that model off-duty look.

Negative Space

Marie Condo, but make it manicured. If you’re into the whole minimalist thing, the negative space nail trend may be for you. This trend means less is more with designs that make the most of your bare nails. Go for abstract shapes in fun colours (try soft pastel tones or vibrant hue) with a glassy clear top coat for ultimate nail goals. Pair with a simple watch to let your nails do all the talking.

Skittle Nails

No longer is painting each nail in a different colour something that is exclusively sidelined for seven-year old’s. 2020’s skittle nails are the cooler older sister combining coordinated shades to create a nail look which is cohesive AF! Try different shades of the same colour (ombre vibes) or go for a particular theme like pastels for a super cute look! A simple white bag is the perfect addition to this nail trend, to make sure your manicure pops!
