11 Nail Trends To Try Out In 2020

The power of statement nails should never be underestimated. Whether you’re into minimal designs or intricate nail art, perfectly crafted nails give even the simplest of fashion and beauty looks an uplift. Now we’ve entered 2020, we’re looking out for all the trends that you can try out this year, starting with some next level nail art ideas for you to take to your next appointment.

We have been seeing star designs everywhere. You’ll struggle to scroll through Instagram without seeing a set of starry nails, and we love the unique red and pink twist on this design by @_dorta_.

For the not-so-basic basic nail lover, the classic French mani has had a 2020 update. Mix it up by painting your tips with a different colour. There’s no rules here, just pick your fave. We’re obsessed with the classic red twist by @aliciatnails.

These are without a doubt the cutest nails we’ve ever seen. Reminiscent of the primary school nail sticker days, this smiley face design by @fleuryrosenails is the perfect mix of fun made cool.

Make a simple design extra by adding a holographic touch. This holographic accent design by @evelynlnails @paintboxnails is the kind of understated glam that we love.

We’re obsessed with this super-cute flower design from Manchester-based nail artist, @notsosweetnails. These bright colours give us serious summer sun vibes (even if it is raining outside).

If, like us, you can never settle on just one colour, then this design by @nailsbyyagal is the one for you. The abstract shapes in all the colours of the rainbow make for an impactful, Insta-worthy look.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the beauty industry is obsessed with crystals. Bring the trend to your nails and take inspo from this rose quartz design from @nessasnails9.

The gradient trend you saw on everyone’s nails last year isn’t going anywhere for 2020. The best part about this style is that it can be created with any colours (we’re loving this blue version by @nailsinc) and you can even do it for yourself at home – no intricate nail art required!

Who said simple had to be boring? This look from @tipsnailbar @nailsfromnars proves that minimal is going nowhere. Plus, it’s super low maintenance, making it ideal for trying out for yourself.

This design by @nailsbymh combines two of our favourite 2020 nail trends – stars and clear tips. This super simple design gives us grown up glitter vibes that add some sparkle no matter what time of year.

Not for the fainthearted, these holographic nails are good enough for Kyle Jenner. The baby blue colour makes them perfectly on trend, and the coffin shape makes them a must-have for all our nail extension lovers. @flossgloss have nailed it (pardon the pun).
