Nail art has been one fad that we just can’t seem to get enough of. From funky graphic designs to pastel pops, nail art as a beauty and fashion staple has come a long way. Whether a party or not, you can always move around with an extra layer of glam as you glitz up your nails with the most fun trends and artwork options.
We’ve saved you all the browsing fuss and listed below the top nail art trends that we see shining this year.
1. Negative Space Nails
This trend was born during the lockdown and has quickly gained a lot of popularity ever since. With a very chic and stylish look, this trend is also extremely convenient since it allows you to extend the interval between your mani sessions because of the natural effect on the cuticle area even after your nail grows out.
2. Tie-Dye Nails

3. Pastel Nails
The soft and subdued yet bright-toned colours will leave very little room for any kind of boredom while not appearing to be too dramatic. Mix and match or go with just one colour!
4. Green Nails
Green is the colour of the season. With sage, lime, mint, olive and pistachio, you will soon find at least one person in your squad rocking these nails.
5. Colour-Blocking Nails
Colour blocking is fun, so why limit this style to just your outfits? Try bold colours to amp up the drama.
6. One-Colour Family Nails
This trend is quite simple yet offers so much space for experimenting. All you have to do is select a colour of your choice and then have each of your nails painted in a different shade of the same colour family.
7. Two Hands, Two Colours
This nail art is so basic yet so quirky in its own ways. The next time you’re confused between two colours, you know you don’t need to make a choice.
