This year, we let our creativity speak to the tips of our nails! If nail art didn’t wait until 2022 to find its way into our beauty routines, we’re having fun following the latest trends in manicures. So what are the nail art trends that are making waves in 2022 on social media?
What we love about the art of manicure is that there is something for all levels. So, if you’re not an expert in the “dotting tool” (this little nail art accessory used to make little colored dots on your nails), you can still create a surprise on your well-moisturized hands. How ? For a start, try a multicolor manicure! Choose one main color and one or two complementary colors, which you can apply to a few nails, for a manicure with a simple but quirky design.
If you don’t have the soul of an artist (of nails), or your hand shakes when trying to make a pattern, don’t worry. False nails, also called “press on”, allow us to dazzle the gallery with our nails. Thanks to industry innovations, press-on false nails are now more durable than ever and more comfortable to wear, too. Easy to apply, they adhere to the nail before filing just like you would your real nails!
Trendy nail polish colors in 2022
The correct choice of colors is the key to successful nail art. To make sure you don’t go wrong, take a look at the Pantone color of the year: you’re sure to surf the manicure trends! In 2022, the renowned paint brand revealed that the color of the year was “Very Peri”, a delicate pale purple color which shows us that pastel colors are still here for a long time. If this beautiful lilac is not to your liking, let yourself be tempted by nail art in dusty pink, water-based mint green or even sky blue.
Other trendy colors in 2022 for your nail art: neutral tones. A warm beige, an ice brown or even a ballerina pink will have the most beautiful effect for those who favor elegance in their look, right down to the tips of the nails. But these more classic shades don’t mean we can’t have some fun!
What nail art will be in fashion this year?
french manicure it is not about to leave the podium of nail art trends, but in 2022 it revisits with even more originality. We hear more and more about of the “American Manicure”, which consists of a more discreet French. To reproduce it, it is enough to paint the tip of the nail with a white varnish as in the classic version, but then we will paint the entire nail with a pale pink varnish, including the white tip. This will allow for a smoother manicure.
But the American Manicure has opened the door to many innovations when it comes to the classic varnish at the end of the nail: thus, we changed the palette to adorn our French manicure with pop tones, even downright neon. Reverse French has also been talked about, especially on Bella Hadid’s nails. It consists of an accent of varnish placed not at the end of the nail, but on the cuticle of the latter.
For those who want to go even further with their nail art, a trend to follow will be that of relief. In 2022, we forget the practical and say a big “yes” 3D patterns on our nails! Elegant white pearls, chic little crystals or simple charms to embellish your nails – nothing is too big for a superior manicure.
