A form of self-care, a great mani stands out and forces you to take some time for yourself; a wise thing to do in the midst of a pandemic.
So whether you love understated chic, a blast of bright colour or intricate nail art, we’ve got you covered with 2021’s new nail trends.
Gradient nails are going nowhere – and the colour possibilities are endless. Whether you go for pretty soft nudes or amp it up with a brighter colour palette, this is the biggest trend right now for decision-phobes.
Good news for pink fans – the colour is big this season after pink nails popped up on the Spring 2021 runways at Fendi, Christian Cowan and Tom Ford. We love this classy take on muted salmon pink.
The tortoiseshell trend is everywhere, though we’re not complaining – it’s chic, abstract and goes with everything in our wardrobe. For a fresh take on the trend, go for beautifully delicate tortoiseshell tips.
It’s impossible not to showcase floral nails for spring, especially when they do a grand job of putting a smile on your face in these stressful times. We’re in love with these negative space daisies; pretty as a petal.
Make like Picasso and draw your own abstract art. We love the clash of chocolate and Tiffany blue.
This checkerboard pattern has been everywhere of late and we’re fully on board – pun intended. Either go all out with a full design, or just decorate the tips if you’re pattern shy.
Minimalists rejoice! This oh so chic smudge of metallic copper on a nude base is perfect for a quick and pretty mani, making you Zoom ready in a few minutes.
Sparkle all year round with this beautiful glitter half border. Whether it’s catching the sunshine or the snow, you’ll be guaranteed to stand out with this design – plus it’s more simple than it looks, just grab a glitter liner in the shade of your choice and you’re good to go!
The nail shape of the year? It’s all about the coffin right now - copy Rihanna and Cardi B and choose this long and elegant shape, which leaves plenty of room for design or embellishment, but looks equally stunning in a skin-tone flattering shade of nude.
Pantone’s official 2021 trend colours include “Kale” and “Greenery”. We love this tonal earthy green, enhanced with cheerful floral detailing – perfect for Spring.
