The Best Nail Trends in 2022 That You Need To Add To Your Mood Board

Euphoria Inspired Nails

If you feel that Euphoria is all about donning ultra glittery makeup, think again. The latest season has somewhat kickstarted a Euphoria inspired nail arts. One of the popular designs is pastel pink nails that are embellished with lines of gemstones in the middle. If you’re on team Cassie, this nail art is surely worth trying.

Very Peri

Our list of the best nail trends in 2022 would not be complete without the trendiest colour of the year. If you want to stay ahead of the trend, make sure to opt for a very peri shade, a pastel blue periwinkle that gives off a dreamy vibe. Whether it’s summer, spring or even winter, you can never go wrong with this nail colour.

Glass Nails

For those who prefer to keep it minimal, ask your manicurist for glass nail art. If you opt for a clear base, make sure to request bright shades of swirls for that extra oomph or vibrant pink French manicure.

Green Day

One of the nail trends that have been spotted on the fashion runway is verdant. But if you think that this shade of green is too plain, go bold by donning a slightly darker with a matte finish. Plus, you can add 3D details to the look with nail rings or even diamonds.

Y2K Motifs

With the rise of 2000s trends, more people have donned their nails with Y2K inspired motifs as a throwback to pop culture. You can expect a mixture of designs like flowers, butterflies, gummy bears, smiley faces, neon flames and mushrooms. If you decide to skip a trip to the nail salon, simply opt for a clear nail polish gel as the base and adorned your nails with nail stickers. Trust us, zero effort is required.

Mix and Match

It seems that mix and match nails have been pretty much trending since last year. The best part is that it is entirely up to your own creativity, whether you prefer French manicure or nail acrylic design. But if cute is what you aim for, our only recommendation is to select a mixture of pastel shades. It’s cute yet sassy!

Checkerboard Nails

If you ever decide to scroll through social media, you will see that checkerboard nails are having a major moment this year. In fact, according to a Pinterest trend report, this nail art indicates a 165% increase in searches. If full on checkerboard nails are too much, we recommend that you opt for a mix and match design to balance it out.

Rhinestone Embellished

Inspired by Euphoria, this highly rated show has reinvented the meaning of glitz and glamour for nails. Our top personal pick of the best nail trends in 2022, has to be the rhinestones adornments. It is just utterly gorgeous.

All Neutral

After a wild ride of bright shades and stiletto nails, it is normal to feel like you want to take a break from those bold looks. Well, if you ever find yourself in such a way, make sure to opt for a barely there nail design. This simple yet chic look features neutral colours of nude without going overboard.

Extraterrestrial Signs

The resurgence of Y2K has also inspired one of these nail trends in 2022. A space design with vibrant green and shimmery orbs.  If you want to amp it up, we highly suggest that you use glow in the dark nail polishes.

Russian Manicures

If you prefer a clean and smooth finish around your nail bed, Russian manicures are something that you should be getting. The technique involves using drills to achieve an airbrushed look. However, it is important to undergo the mani session with a nail artist that is trained in such an area.

Funky Fresh French Nails

Jazz up your classic French nails with a twist of bright colours and dazzling jewellery. Simply ditch the neutral colours and opt for pink or even yellow to make your nails shine. If you’re feeling a little bolder, step up your nail game by adorning the nails with chunky jewels or rhinestones.
