Fresh Nail Trends to Look Out for in 2022

January 9, 2022

We've saved you hours of scrolling through Instagram, narrowing down all of the latest nail trends that are going to prevail this year. From geometric designs to clean lines and bold shades, here are the biggest trends everyone will be rocking in 2022!

Abstract Lines

Abstract nails are the newest trend taking over Instagram, looking more like an abstract painting than nail art. These nails feature a vibrant mix of colors and fun designs, such as squiggly swipes and colorful graphic lines to make your mani feel more modern and stylish.


Shades of Blue

Blues will be the next biggest trend for 2022, starting from the early winter months with deep ocean blue hues while going lighter for spring and summer. Pantone announced its color of the year, the beautiful periwinkle, which is the perfect mix of blue and purple. Go for this It-nail color if you want to add some spring to your step.


Bright and Bold

Consider opting for neon hues with micro details for those who love lots of detail and bright, fun colors.



Polished neutrals aren’t going anywhere next year. They add a timeless appeal and elegance that complement any skin tone. Go for warm, neutral shades, including chocolate brown, beige, tan, off-white and cream, and prefer short, neat nails that are more chic. 



Mismatched nail designs that showcase a different look on every finger offer up a great way to get creative this year. Don't be afraid to spice things up with clever color schemes and intricate designs, from fun colors to cool designs. With endless options and combinations, the look never gets old, which is why you'll be seeing this versatile style for many seasons to come.




Metallic hue nails have managed to go in and out of season every few years. This year the high shine look is back and hotter than ever. It could be something as simple as chrome nail polish or bold as metal embellishments.


Black & White

Black and white combination is timeless, elegant, and never goes out of style! For 2022, this trend comes with a twist; anything from geometric lines and colored tips are included.

Twisted French

While the French manicure remains a classic choice for most women, there is a new version this year. Whether you opt for chunky, super-thin, traditional, abstract, or something in between, definitely make French manicures of all different types a go-to of yours for 2022.



Micro Mani

Random minimal details, such as heart tips, stars or pretty much anything you like are a fun yet subtle way to spice up any manicure.
