Shellac Nail Trends In 2023
Winter nail polish trends were all about bold takes on moody browns and vampy oxbloods; spring’s colors seem more relaxed. According to experts, milky nudes, minimalist classics such as French tips and neon green accent nails are making waves this spring.
Artistic painting has quickly become an increasingly popular trend. This technique involves using colorful gradients blended against solid base colors to create custom looks tailored specifically for each client; think mood rings!
Bold bright pink makes an excellent summer hue, providing both playfulness and femininity to nail art designs like swirls, polka dots and flowers. Matte polish with adhesive rhinestones may also work.
Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year, Viva Magenta is expected to have a dramatic impact on fashion, makeup and nails alike. For a bolder look try creating a half-moon manicure featuring crescent-shaped strips of nail polish forming half moon shapes on each nail.
Rhinestones have come a long way since their humble origins as small quartz stones in the Rhine River, evolving into iconic fashion accessories and pop culture icons like Liberace or Glen Campbell as the Rhinestone Cowboy.
These colorful glitter stones come in two forms – chatons (pointed backs) and flat backs – and may or may not be coated in foil. Historically, they were adhered to clothing, shoes and appliques with hot fix glue to add a gleaming sheen.
Now, nail art has become trendy; with delicate micro-manis featuring tiny flowers and minimalist shapes. The results look fresh and youthful; easily achieved at home using nail stickers.
Half-moon nails can add a splash of color to any look. To achieve this look, select two complementary polish colors and apply one at the base and the other on top – using either an art brush or the one provided with your bottle, create half circle shapes at its base to complete this look.
This look is ideal for those not quite ready to commit fully to neon manicures. Additionally, it pairs nicely with other nail art styles – like black negative space nails adorned with pearl accents (an homage to Taylor Swift’s “Bejeweled” music video).
When selecting nude colors, it is crucial that they compliment the skin tone of its wearer. Selecting too light a hue could appear washed-out and dull while selecting too dark of an option could become overwhelming and unflattering.
This summer, try something different when it comes to nail fashion: Hailey Bieber-inspired nude versions of Hailey’s shiny gold mani with the Glazed Donut Manicure can show off natural beauty while remaining stylishly glamorous.
Pastel colors evoke powerful emotional associations that evoke optimism, innocence, and festivity. Their range can also include bolder forms like neon flowers on Susan Alexandra’s nails at NYFW; or more subdued and delicate variations like the Korean blush manicure.
Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa and Lizzo made the glazed donut nail trend famous with Tiktok users worldwide this summer. Combining glossy polish with chrome elements for an eye-catching finish that makes for the ideal accessory to a sunny getaway trip.
Swirl designs offer an easy way to incorporate pastel hues into your mani. This timeless technique creates a contemporary take on ombre, while still remaining versatile enough for pairing with other designs to achieve various looks.
