Top Instagram nail art trends to try this season

Whether it's in envy of Kylie's serious manicure game or that we simply got creative from having to learn the craft ourselves during past lockdowns, the nail art scene has exploded and the trends couldn't be more exciting! Here are the most instagrammed nail trends for this season, and with a steady hand (or nail stickers), the right tools and a little inspo, try recreating a few yourself.

Colour-popping french tips

The classic French manicure has had a wash of colour, with traditional white tips replaced by a myriad of different shades, with pastels to bold hues taking centre stage. Go for a single shade or marry up complimenting tones for a relatively subtle but playful mani.

Ride the wave

The combinations are endless with this trend. Start with a clear canvas, then run with a couple of adventurerous shades or build on a kaleidoscope of pastels. The trick here is to find a balance between colour and negative space.

Luscious browns

Inspired by the warm chocolate, caramel latte and the milkiest of tea tones from the latest fashion collections, brown is the new black this season. The perfect trend particularly for our nude mani lovers, find the right shade to suit your skin tone and you've got yourself a new neutral to change things up.

Subtle illustration

This trend is all about fine lines and subtlety of design. Choose a base colour, whether it'd be nude or something more audacious. Then depending on how you feel, run with geometric lines, organic shapes and if you're up for a challenge, perhaps an abstract portrait of a face.
