Nail Polish Trend: Futuristic
“Metallics are here to stay – think new bronzes, golds and chromes,” says Oli Antunes.
“Layered over a nude nail, this trend will have you shimmering through winter!”
Metallic micro-French nail art is also having a moment, and luckily Antunes says it’s really easy to achieve at home.
“The glazed-doughnut nail effect popularised last year by Hailey Bieber is set to continue this year, but with a subtle chrome twist,” she explains.
Nail Polish Trend: Healthy Nudes
If you prefer natural looking nails, you’ll be pleased to hear that healthy nails are here to stay.
“Nail condition is in the spotlight and the post lockdown nail-care trend is set to endure this winter,” explains Antunes.
“This is an easy low-maintenance way to look after nails day to day. Polish is spared in favour of natural, buffed and neat nails,” she notes.
Nail Polish Trend: Autumnal Opaque Shades
If there’s one thing we love about seasonal change, it’s the colours that come with it. Move over pastel shades and say hello to the cool, dark tones of winter.
“There are so many rich and earthy hues on trend this season,” says Antunes. Think muted greens and burgundies – these colours suit all skin tones.
Nail Polish Trend: Nail Art
“The popularity of nail art is booming with unlimited design creativity, and anything goes this year!” says Antunes.
“From sophisticated designs to simple nail stickers applied to a nude base shade, eye-catching accents and jewels on nails abound. Adding a simple crystal to dot each nail or to one finger is an easy way to adopt this trend.”
Nail Polish Trend: Press On
Stick-on nails are taking the beauty world by storm. Easy to apply and great for a night out, give these a whirl for an instant nail upgrade. Simply use the adhesive stickers for temporary wear or apply the glue to each nail for extra longevity.
