Nail Art Trends Worth Trying in 2022

Your manicure speaks a thousand words, and it’s essential that you keep your nails looking on point. The best trends in nail art, color, style, and even nail extensions in Singapore keep changing from season to season and year to year, and if you’re looking for some fun, fresh manicure ideas, here are some nail art trends you need to try:

The timeless French manicure

This is a trend that never goes out of style, whether it’s for bridal manicures or for brunches. You can play around with the classic french manicure in many ways, including bright tips, neutral tips, classic white and nude, or even some texture and bling. We call it a timeless look because it’s something that never seems to go out of style, and it’s bound to look incredible no matter what the variation. It gives you a very sophisticated but fun and young. It’s a great look for the summer, and can be changed up for several occasions, from vacations to regular workdays. Play with different colored French tips, accents, even textures and add-ons for a little more funk.

Nail Art Trends Worth Trying in 2022

Pastels and neons for nail colors

Pastels and neons are always going to make a comeback, even if they fade out from time to time. We love solid pastels and solid neon nails, but we also love a fusion of the two. It’s the perfect color marriage! In fact, you can even find shades that fall into both categories and try them out for yourself.

What makes these color palettes such a great choice is that they’re bold, funky, and will definitely make a statement when you flaunt them. You also don’t need to do much else other than wearing solid colors and can easily pair them with different looks since the goal isn’t to have them match; it’s to make them pop. No matter where or how you style neon or pastel nails, they’re going to make sure all eyes are on you–or rather, your nails!  

Painting like patterns and colors

Speaking of making a statement, another trend we’ll be seeing a lot of this summer is painting like nail art. Nail artists are playing with textures, colors, and designs to create nails that resemble miniature paintings and works of art and create spectacular-looking manicures. It’s one of the most popular trends on social media, and we love how much creativity and talent goes into creating these looks.

Retro floral patterns and designs

Florals are fun, flirty, and work for different age groups and occasions. It depends on the type of floral you get too; for instance, you could get a retro floral pattern or accent for something more fun, and roses for something more elegant and classic. It all depends on the occasion, style, and look you’re going for.  

Your manicurist or nail salon in Singapore can create various types of looks based on floral designs and patterns, including single flowers, vines, or speckled flowers, or even alternative designs. Go in with a look in mind, or look up reference images to make sure you know what you want because flowers may not be everyone’s cup of tea and you want to make sure you’re satisfied with the pattern.

Geometric and abstract patterns

Nail art is going to feature a lot more geometric and abstract artwork, too, this year. We love clean lines, swirls, splashes, and patterns of all kinds! Artists have worked with simple swirls, elaborate, detailed patterns, minimalist lines, and so much more, customizing them with glitter, rhinestones, studs, and sparkles as well.

Confetti glitter and sparkly nails

Who doesn’t love glitter? We can’t get enough of glitter nails, and this year, they’re trending quite a bit with different variations. Not only are sparkly glitter nails a major trend that is perfect for special occasions like birthdays, parties, celebrations, or just a tinge of joy in your everyday life, but they’re also quite versatile. Glitter nails work for all skin tones, nail shapes, ages, and occasions, so you can wear them to the club, and even to work if you’re confident enough.

But what’s even more exciting and trending this year, are confetti glitter nails. This style uses larger designs and glitter particles in various shapes such as hearts, stars, and more, to create patterns, accents, or fully adorn the nail. It looks adorable and adds some Y2K funk to your manicure. We’re huge fans!

Glazed donut nails

If you haven’t already heard, Hailey Beiber’s glazed donut nails are all over TikTok, Instagram and other social media platforms because of how simple, minimalist, yet gorgeous they are. This nail trend takes the cake–or donut, if you know what we mean–because of how simple but elegant they are. Glazed donut nails look exactly how they sound: a pearly white, pink or peach nail paint coats your nails, showing off the natural nail underneath. It’s also very versatile and great for everyday looks, and is the peak of minimalist nail fashion. If there’s one trend you try out this year, it’s got to be this.
