We don’t know about you, but we’re feeling ‘22! The start of a new year calls for a fun and fresh manicure that stands out and helps you be who you want to be. Give your circle the mani content they didn’t know they needed with these trending nail art and manicure ideas for 2022 that are fit to take on the world, one nail at a time.
1. MAKE NAIL CARE COOL AGAIN
Nail care is *always* cool, but as skinimalism and at-home manicure trends continue to reign at the start of 2022, it’s time to take the plunge in upgrading your DIY nail care treatment game. These skin care additions are what turn your regular at-home manicure into an absolute belter.
- Best selling Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator that makes cuticle care super simple
- Award-winning Jelly Preserve Strengthening Treatments that help rejuvenate dry, brittle nails with a smashing jelly nail look
- Fan favourite P.D. Quick Dry Conditioning Drops that accelerate dry time and help prevent nicks or chipping in your nail lacquer
Not to mention you’ll feel like a true nail art tech, which is always *proper* satisfying. Just don’t be surprised if you actually do become one, with all your mates asking, “Can you do mine?” As the latest Spidey film reminds us, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
2. ALL ABOUT THE BLUE
From Pantone’s projection of Very Peri periwinkle as the colour of 2022 to alluring navy fashion week outfits, it’s clear that the beginning of this year will be all about the blue nails. Playful and confident, a blue manicure has true staying power, whether you go for perky pastel, elegant jewel tones or moody nail moments.
Right now, we’re fancying these nail lacquer hues for the ultimate blue nails:
- Candy Floss: Soft powder blue crème nail lacquer
- London Fog: Soft stormy blue crème nail lacquer
- Brolly: Smoky navy blue crème nail lacquer
3. COLOUR SCHEME
You have an *immense* and incredible nail lacquer collection. Why limit yourself to just one shade? In fact, why not create a multi-colour manicure scheme with your nails—whether bright and bold with pink, orange and green or naturally minimal with nude nail lacquer hues—to add intriguing dimension and personality to your everyday nail looks.
We love this manicure trend because you can go full-on neon or mellow out some of your brighter shades with complementary nail lacquer colours. Expert mode: activated.
4. TEXTURE MIXTURE
Give your manicure a trendy edge by switching up the texture. The glossy look is ~timeless~ but try mirroring the experimenting with a matte or glitter top coat to really stand out from the crowd. This is the nail art equivalent of layering a band tee over a turtleneck. Did someone say, “Best of both worlds”?
5. DELICATE PINK & CREAM COMBO
Combine Sandy Bum (milky pink crème nail lacquer) and Yummy Mummy (cool beige shimmering nail lacquer) for the same cozy feeling you get from your favourite cardigan and warm cuppa tea in hand. We recommend this nail lacquer duo especially for the bullet journal lovers, Pinterest scrollers and kitty sticker users.
Make this nail trend your own by adding DIY nail art like mini hearts or geometric shapes for a minimalist yet detailed manicure look.
