Hello new year, hello new fresh nail trends. As we enter 2023, we’re here to help you keep up with the latest and greatest in the manicure world, and *spoiler alert* you’re in for a treat. We’ve done some digging and rounded up our favourite trending nail art looks for 2023, to give you a head start this year and of course that all important inspo for your next appointment.
Whether you’re going all out with 3D details or keeping it a little more low key with some texture, 3D nails are a big vibe this year. We’re seeing everything from abstract 3d swirls to sweet little hearts and we’re loving them all. Manicure appointment inspo = sorted.
If you’re looking for something uber romantic and luxurious, look no further than velvet nails. Taking storm by most of Instagram’s best nail techs (so we know it’s gotta be good), these shimmering polishes are designed to react with magnetic exposure, resulting in a dual-toned effect that resembles the expensive look of velvet.
Thanks to the craze of Hailey Bieber and her glazed donut nails, this trend just keeps getting better and better, and it’s not going anywhere in 2023. What started as a glazed-donut nude had now snowballed into literally any colour we can get our hands on. Soft brown, blue or pink, glazed nails are going to be bigger and better this year.
Described as molten metal by many, expect to see a lot of this look on your feed and FYP this year. Think melting silvers, mirrored chrome and lots of texture with this one, like hot silver has literally been poured on your nails (not literally, of course).
We’re bringing things back down to earth in 2023 with an abundance of earthy tones on our nails. Picture forest and grassy greens mixed with tones of khaki and olive for this one and you’re onto an on-trend winner.
