6 Nail Trends to Try Now

Nail art has fast become fashion’s leading accessory. An ideal way to customise your look, here are six of the most stylish trends to try now.

Nail art has transcended well beyond colour; these days it’s all about texture. Textured nail polishes have a thick and grainy consistency, which means you’ll only need two coats before heading out the door. Wear neutral rings and bracelets to make your nails really pop. 

For a refreshing alternative to glossy nails, matte polish is a cool choice. This trend works perfectly with statement accessories. A matte topcoat (like this one) will mattify any polish giving nails a shine-proof, velvety finish. 

Reverse french manicure
Who says that your French manicure has to be confined to the tip of your nails? Switch things up and paint the half moon at your cuticles. Replace nude and white polish for edgier shades, like pairing red with black or plum with pink.

Perfect for nights out, metallic nails make an instant impression. This season, chrome, silver and gold shades are a must.

Nude and white
For a neutral, yet chic finish, nothing works better than nude, coffee or white polish. The runways have confirmed it: Minimalism is going nowhere. Whether matte or shiny, ensure your cuticles are groomed to perfection, as light shades expose flaws.

Ombré is having a beauty moment. Featuring a gradient of colours, we particularly love using candy or pastel shades to create this look. Follow our step-by-step guide and try it yourself!
