Still it was nowhere for the metallic chrome manicure. Nail artist Holly Falcon opted for a glossy, almost liquid-looking polish at the Batsheva and Friscobra shows. Falcone isn’t the only nail artist who seems fascinated by the chrome look. Nail artist Naomi Yasuda used silver gel with a mirror effect for Tommy Hilfiger’s nail look.

For something everyone can replicate at home with minimal effort, the milky manicure is an upgraded nude. Appearing at shows like LoveShackFancy, Tory Burch, Ulla Johnson, and more, this beautiful and easy manicure is a spring must-have. Tenoverten’s founder, Nadine Abramsick, wanted a “glamorous-but-pretty nail effect” for models walking for Tory Burch.
Late 2000s trend to make a comeback? None other than red nails. Instead of relying on beige neutrals, models on the runways were often seen with bright reds. That extra boldness and color will be everywhere in the coming months, trust us.
It turns out that French nails don’t tend to disappear overnight. Appearing on the runways of Alice + Olivia, Tommy Hilfiger, Peter Doe, Sandy Liang and more, they’ve mastered variations of the French mane. Whether it’s a traditional manicure with white tips, or get creative with colors, this is a basic look that won’t go anywhere.

Perhaps the most popular nail trend this summer is curling. Whether strategically placed or randomly placed, swirls help bring out the drama in any new set. The best part about the trend is that there are no rules. Feel free to make each swirl as big or small or as bold and bright as your heart desires. However, if absolute perfection is what you’re after, you’ll want to use a fine brush like the one found in this Olive and June set to ensure the shapes look clean and attractive. Trying to combine contrasting colors like this pink color called Euphoric from Moon Cat with Coco and Claire’s pumpkin spice shade.
Hot Nail Trends For Summer 2022
There are some things in life that are not good in 3D and nail art is no exception. 3D nail decals can easily take a simple gem to another dimension (pun intended). Their main appeal is the fact that unlike many other nail trends, there doesn’t have to be a lot of skill involved – and with so much variety available in the sticker world, the hardest part is figuring out which one to go with. Try adding subtle pearls like these pearl stickers from Play Beauty for a subtle and subtle look. If you really want to dive headfirst into the third dimension, craftily placed crystals are a great example of the magic stickers can provide, these polar light crystals are sure to do the trick.
Long gone are the days of transparent nails signaling a lack of creativity or just plain boring. An explosion of soft gel manicures and more elaborate nail art gave way to bare nails taking on a whole new look. Nail technicians are ditching the color base coat in favor of using clear tips as a blank canvas to showcase their creations. If you want to try this trend for maximum impact, try pairing a clear nail with a shiny metallic color, like this rich gold color from Zoya. And while most nail salons are well-stocked with clear gel tips, if you’re the ambitious type and want to consider jumping on the trend yourself, Epsnail has clear advice in every shape and size you can think of.
This is not your mother’s French tips! And we mean this in the best possible way. After a definite break in the mainstream, the French tip is back and reimagined in the most fun and exciting way. Whether it’s a deep French or a complete color change to an intricate design, you’d be hard-pressed to find many nail enthusiasts sporting a white square French manicure. Add your own creative and unique spin on things by swapping classic white for a fun summer color like All Fun and Games by Essie. Finishing the look with a stunning top coat is essential; OPI Infinite Shine Gloss Top Coat is sure to do the trick.
The Unexpected Nail Trends Set To Be Huge In 2022
No, it’s not your mind playing tricks on you, the negative space above the nail should be there and isn’t it amazing? The moon nail trend allows you to play with colors and shapes that we haven’t really seen before. Don’t be shy, feel free to use this space to add an unexpected pop of color to your manicure, like this deep red from Chanel’s La Vernis collection. If you’re going to leave things exposed, a fun pink base coat like OPI Infinite Shine Long-Wear Lacquer, Neutral, and Nede will definitely do the trick while keeping your half moon looking super glowy.
You used to have to wait until you got a brand new manicure before trying out tons of colors and designs—but not anymore. Manicure fanatics are increasingly going beyond color and design to a single uniform and using them all on one hand in large numbers. If you’re looking to play it safe it might be best to start with colors within the same family. Start with a soft color like Gucci Vernis À Ongles nail polish and play with other neutrals in the same shade and color family. If you want to dive head first into the world of changing colors and designs to save time, try picking up a few packs of press on nails like these from Glamnetics, they’ll make sure you don’t spend your entire day at the nail salon. And the fact that they’re reusable means you can switch combinations from time to time.

There’s something about the metallic/chrome finish that instantly elevates things and gives it that much more edge. So it’s no surprise that the Chrome trend took off the way it did.

Take your chrome-like finish to the next level with Winifred Chrome Dust by Magpie, this premium chrome dust is not only easy to apply but can transform any nail color for a completely chromatic look.
