Nails Trends: The Colors & Designs That Will Rule this Year

Because it’s never too late to make a style statement, we rounded up the nail trends for 2023 that will reign among the coolest beauty looks of the year.

The great thing about nail trends is that it’s pretty unbiased: no one colour or design is considered “out of style” because nail aesthetics are subjective. It’s also one of the easiest ways to experiment with your look by playing with colours, textures, patterns and shapes, and unlike changing your hair colour or hairstyle, it doesn’t have to be overly complicated.

Nail design fanatics might wear bright, bold colours, experiment with fun finishes and decorate their nails with intricate textures. The best part is that there are plenty of designs for everyone’s taste: dark, gothic Wednesday Addams-inspired design, aura colours to suit every mood, and much more. From classic to bold nail designs, we rounded up the nail styles that are predicted to be all the rage this year.

Are you in doubt about what to wear for a party or a meeting with friends? Our suggestion is to go for a neutral brown. Of course, it’s important to pick up the right tone as there are plenty of brown “chocolate” shades you can wear on your nails. The most incredible aspect of wearing brown tones on your nails is that they go with everything and do not need anything else to add to make your nails look beautiful, while they also elevate any look.
