Nail Art 2023 Trends
Spring 2023 nail trends include everything from ombre nail art and glitter accents to fluffy aura manicures inspired by Blake Lively’s “antique grandma wallpaper” nails or chic metallic French tips; each trend will make an elegant yet effortless statement this spring.
Nude chrome nail trends have quickly taken over social media, offering stylish yet effortless ways to add glamour and shine to everyday looks. Nude chrome works great on all nail shapes and sizes – providing minimalists an effective way of adding some drama with their daily looks.
This pair also fits seamlessly with this season’s revival of ’80s fashion trends such as chic grunge and early 2000s chunky metal aesthetics – but can also create an feminine vibe thanks to its shiny metallic finish.
An easy way to achieve this look is by asking your nail technician to apply chrome powder over black polish, though other colors can also work – try milky hues for a fresh manicure or white-tinted vanilla for something in-between eggshell and beige that creates an eye-catching summer manicure look!
‘Stuck On’ Nail Art
KimKim anticipates neon nail colors will be at full display during festival season, so she advises going bold with your talons by creating aura nails to add an extra pop of color. Create this effect by painting circles of different hues on each nail – add more circles if you wish for an intensified effect! “Aura nail designs allow you to express yourself through color and design, serving as mini-expressions of yourself,” according to her advice. If feeling confident and charismatic try yellow, or kind and loving choose pink.
Dua Lipa and Lizzo both rocking textured nail trends are back for another season this summer – and making your own is easy. Nail artist Areia Nguerebanda suggests mixing negative space, patterns or decals for an eye-catching manicure.
After Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa and Lizzo made pearlescent nails an iconic trend last year, it comes as no surprise that pearlescent nail art will remain one of our 2023 nail trends to try. Achieve this look easily: use metallic chrome polish or soft iridescence like Zola Ganzorigt did in her TikTok tutorial; for the latter combine your milky gel color with clear top coat to sheer it out for this effect; otherwise you could also try OPI’s Kyoto Pearl collection or any opaque color that shows through clear gloss varnish for this effect!
Opting for a graphic yet simple daisy design on your nails is another pearlescent option, using a nail art dotting tool to create this eye-catching shape against a white base will ensure an eye-catching manicure. A metallic star cluster adds an edgy edge; TikTok searches related to Mermaid or Barbie-inspired looks are on the rise so this trend could spread further than ever this summer!
Florals will soon make an appearance on our nails this spring, according to celebrity manicurist Elle Gerstein. Floral pastels reminiscent of “antique grandma wallpaper” will be popular and look particularly chic when applied on short natural nails.
Negative space nail designs provide a fun take on vibrant hues. Inspired by Hailey Bieber’s signature donut nails, the technique involves painting small sections or stripes of color over a neutral base that complements your skin tone – similar to Hailey’s glazed donut nails – achieving modern results that are simple to recreate at home using Ciate Nail Wraps.
Swirl designs are also trending right now, whether dipping into the galaxy nails trend or channeling a clean minimalist vibe. Add an element of shimmer with gold foil stars. Or go all-out graphic by including slogans or flowers for an eye-catching Y2K aesthetic mani.
