Nail Trends You Need to Try this Spring

Regular manicures are important for most of us, ladies and gents alike. But adorning nails is the icing on the cake of any self-care routine, because, let’s face it, it’s fun! Nail trends change just as much as fashion trends and it’s important to stay on top of the game. Before going on a shopping spree for new nail varnishes, read this post to find out what’s hot this season.

Colours

Last year, we saw bold and bright colours on ladies’ hands. This year’s trends are taking us in the opposite direction. If you’re looking to choose one colour to be your “go-to” option, grey should be it. It’s not surprising if we stop and consider that contemporary fashion and home decor have been favouring grey for some time. Don’t worry about getting bored — grey has a rich range on tonalities that include cool and warm shades.

Given that we’re turning away from strong, saturated colours, it’s time to embrace a natural look. Nude, neutral and sheer nails are huge this season, but you can also play around with pale pinks, peaches and light pastels.

Accents

Pair any neutral or sheer nail with tiny accents of colour — paint a thin blue line around the cuticle, finish your manicure with a light layer of glitter or paint only one nail in a soft neutral while leaving the rest with a sheer varnish. Adding thin, metallic accents will also complement this look.

Nail Art

Nail art is like makeup for your hands. This season, the traditional French manicure is getting an update. Replace the white tips with red, blue or another eye-popping hue. Don’t be afraid to mix and match trends, but be sure to respect the same colour wheel to avoid clashing nails. If you fancy experimenting with shapes, choose geometric patterns, like strips, checkerboards or triangles.

Before choosing a trend to follow this season, you need to prep your nails. Shakina Spa offers various manicure options to pamper your hands. What about a 55-minute luxury manicure that includes a gentle exfoliation and a nourishing hand mask application which moisturises and conditions along with heated mittens. You’ll be treated to a Jessica Midi Nail varnish to take home! If you’re a fan of long-lasting manicures, we offer manicures and pedicures with GELeration gel polish, hand cream, massage and application of cuticle oil.
