As nail salons everywhere reopen, people are flocking back to their nail technicians for a long-overdue manicure. Many have tried mimicking popular trends online on their own while others have opted for an easier route with their press-ons. But thankfully enough, now that we’re in Phase 2, that time has finally come.

If you have scheduled your nail appointment this week, yet you’ve no clue on which designs you should go for next, here are some nail inspirations that you can try.

 

1. TIE-DYE

The tie-dye trend has been around since forever but they’re making a strong comeback as one of the biggest trends this 2020. This design, achieved with the right use of cool dreamy pastel tones, brings out the perfect rainbow tie-dye effect.

 

2. CLOUD 9

Feel like you’re on Cloud 9? There’s no better way than to express how you feel than on your nails. Think dreamy, whimsical swirls of white, drawn over a clear or nude base for a nice looking sky.

 

3. MARBLE

Known as one of the top burgeoning nail trends to date, this nail design features a new take on your typical marble set. They are psychedelic and dazzling.

 

4. SOLID-COLOURED NAILS

If a solid-coloured manicure is more of your vibe, consider this. Featuring muted tones that complement one another, this unique nail set requires minimal effort for a stunning and really chic look.

 

5. DAISIES

The daisies in this look are a nail-art staple for many this summer. Dot on some nail paint on a clear or nude base, and you’ve got one of this year’s biggest trends down pat.

 

6. GRAPHIC DESIGN

This pretty pastel design is created by layering on different pastel shades over a sheer base. A fashion-forward update to your usual minimalist look, this set is accented with a mixture of different shapes and negative space, for a look that stands out.

 

7. LINE ART

Give your basic manicure an edge with this line art design. All you need to recreate this high-impact set is a fine brush tip and a steady hand. Let your imagination run wild with a mix of shades and shapes, and most importantly, the addition of hand-drawn faces.

 

8. FRENCH TIPS WITH A TWIST

Fact is — you can never go wrong with a classic french tip. But how about replacing them with brighter pops of neons or pastels? With unexpected accents, this unique twist on a familiar classic gives it a fresh look you’ll now want to flaunt.

 

9. TORTOISE SHELL

This season, tortoise shell is all the rage and it’s making waves on the Internet. Abstract but not sloppy, neutral but not understated, you can see why it’s so appealing to masses, especially on Instagram. If you’re doing it on your own, you only need three colours and a thin paintbrush.

 

10. COW PRINT

Moo-ve over — these cow print nails are making a comeback and we’re not mad about it. Try it on your long tips or even on short nails for a bold look. You never know, sometimes a bold manicure might just be what you need to update your post-Circuit Breaker look.
