Once you’ve embarked on the road of gel or hybrid manicure, you may feel you lack ideas for the new nail design. There are styles and colours that will never fall out of trends, like deep wine, classic navy, nudes, or French manicure. But, they do get repetitive. Sometimes, we do wish for something new. Luckily, fall 2021 is the season for experimenting.
French Manicure is everyone’s old favourite. Finally, trendsetters seemed to take it to their hearts and gave it a promising update. The classic look, the rounded top stays untouched, but you’re allowed to play with colours and patterns. Combine white caramel matt base with a glossy golden top. A transparent glossy base with bright, colourful tops. Paint more stripes of “tops” in pastel colours and sprinkle it with glitter, or add tops in trending colours – bright orange or fluorescent green.
This is the next trend that never goes away, no matter what season. Its universality is a curse. It’s convenient to wear all year round, but it’s difficult to refresh this look. Indigo nails UK followed the trends with their set of milky nude tones, which are the latest hit. Then, create a surprising effect by combining them with your skin tone. You can match it closely or contrast it.
Stickers were underappreciated last year. Wrongly associated with a girlish, or childish manicure. They make a comeback with intricate, modern and arty patterns. They are easy to apply, efficient and allow you to combine 10 different styles on one hand. When you put on a transparent coat, no one will even know it’s a sticker.
This is an extravagant shape that pops out. Long nails with narrow, square tops. You will see it in all sorts of colours – from nudes to fluorescent orange. Perfect not only for Halloween nail art. [READ: DIY Spooky Halloween Nail Art]
This fall, you can go political with your nail design and show solidarity with body positive and feminist movements. Paint silhouettes of female bodies, breasts, waists, labia and leave it without a base. It looks distinctive and has a chance of becoming a recognizable sign of body positivity.
That’s perhaps the easiest trend if you want to look chic with minimal effort. What’s the trick? Choose two different shades of nail polish and paint your left hand with one of them, and the right hand with the other. Preferably, colours should come from the same palette – two matt tones, two hues of nude, two metallic ones, two primary colours and so on.
Sweater theme, because pandemic made us love our comfy sweaters even more. Now, you can add the pattern and the texture of knitting to your nail. That’s something new, isn’t it? The texture is a challenge for nail styling enthusiasts, which ensures that it will stay unique.
