Nail Design Trends
Check out the gorgeous nail designs below for inspiration to your 2021 nails.
#1: Awesome Autumn
Fall in love with fall all over again with a nail design to match. Use bright orange, pink, green, and yellow on long square nails and squiggly white lines for soft waves.
#2: Marbled White
These marbled white coffin nails sort of remind us of granite countertops, but in a more glam way since they feature a gold fly detail near the cuticle and flecks of gold in the marbled nails.
#3: Sparkly Winter
Why do a plain light blue nail for winter nails when you can add a little sparkle with glitter polish? Add a dark blue chrome nail on the ring finger for accent.
#4: Dainty Daisies
When it’s springtime, on long rounded nails opt for clear polish with a glitter undertone. Then apply daisy stickers or nail decals to the tips of the nail for a cute pop of yellow color.
#5: This is Halloween
Matte black is a spooky addition to shiny red Halloween nails. A pumpkin nail decal adds to the theme while “dripping” red blood gives a fright.
#6: Bright Yellow and Butterflies
A gorgeous emerald green butterfly outlined in black pops on bright yellow nails. Wear these square shaped nails in the summer for a pop of sunshine.
#7: Maroon Nails with White Brush Strokes
After painting long square nails maroon, use your white nail polish brush to draw squiggles down the nail. Little black buttons or crystals are a fun accessory to add.
#8: Nautical Nails
If you or your teenager want a fun nail design, try nautical nails. Red, light blue, and white decorate rounded nails. A cute anchor charm will make it 3D.
#9: Plain and Simple
The classic French nail manicure will always be a trend. In 2022 this nail design has been most loved and worn by workaholic women and real ladies. Be sure to get this manicure as often as you can, because if you didn’t know; men love it the most!

#11: Purple Nails
If purple is the way you like to sway, this amazing nail design is calling out to you. This manicure has been one of the best hits.

#12: Hit The Party
Glow in the dark manicure? Yes, please. This whole year has been fulfilled with festivals and parties. If you are going to a club with this manicure you will definitely get a lot of attention.
This might be perfect for you party animals, or women who have been avoiding something this bold throughout the whole year. It is time to change that and to have a wild fiesta.
#13: Royally White
Royally white nails are super trendy in 2022. Whoever is a fan of long nails with lighter colors has probably had them done like this a few times by now. The best part is that you can wear this manicure to any event and look smoking hot.
#14: Light Chrome
Everyone has been loving chrome, that is undeniable. However, the length and the colors that you choose to go with are differentiating these types of manicures.
In this case, a lighter and more subtle ombre effect is super bold and cute at the same time. Imagine having these during the summer? Everyone will be fascinated by the beauty of your nails.
#15: Mad For Chrome
Are you a bigger chrome fanatic than the previous picture is showing? If so, let’s get your nails fully mono and chromo! This trend has been seen everywhere, and mostly in pink and golden chrome tone.

If you are a flower child and you love everything that blossoms lets make your nails super hip. This nail design has been cherished and mostly seen during the Spring. Super brave and bold women will definitely do this manicure once again no matter which season it is.
#17: Purple Nails
These purple nails with stunning flowers should be legally banned. How can anything look this pretty, it is sore for my eyes! That’s why you should be wearing them only for some special events, such as prom or gala weddings. They are definitely not appropriate for your supermarket visitations.
#18: Retro Orange Nails
Polka dot will always be in fashion, and we can see why. These trendy nails with orange color are super appropriate for summer.
Imagine being on a beach, tanning, and holding a cocktail in your hand; with these orange nails popping out. Statement pieces everywhere!
#19: Black & White Nails
Women tend to avoid black and white colors a little too often. They believe that they look dead and unwanted.
But, if you add a rose sticker with some statement rings as these ones you are in for a good time! These can suddenly be your work nails or your date night nails; the choice is up to you.
#20: Your Baby
A perfect example of super bold and vivid nails, unlike the previous ones. We can totally agree that these look like they came out of the ”Candy Shop” music video. And believe it or not, it’s been 12 years since this song came out. I feel old.
Baby Nail Design Ideas
#21: Peacock Is Pinky
Remember the ”Peacock” song that Katy Perry sings? This manicure looks like it’s been inspired by that song. Super cute, bright and detailed manicure is something that women are drawn to easily.
Speaking of draws, you better find someone who is brave and precise enough to draw this for you. You don’t want your peacock to end up looking like a dead, beat-up fish.
We are seeing some Captain America and Wonder Woman colors. And how couldn’t we? The Marvel comics have been killing it this year, and that’s why these nails have a special place on our list.
The Best of Disney-themed Nails
#23: Subtle Watermelon
This little subtle watermelon art is something you don’t see every day. As you’ve probably noticed, these nails have been painted on both sides. You’ve probably seen this trend during this year, but not in these colors and this print.
Women mostly tend to get them in white or pink colors, the inner part of the nail that is. That’s because that way the nails look the sharpest and cleanest.
#24: Golden Glittery Nails
These are long, gold, bold, classy and just right for the sexiest and prettiest women. If you go to a party with these nails be ready to hand out your nail ladies number, a lot!
#25: Not A Subtle Watermelon
Some of you ladies are not fans of subtle manicures, and we get you. If you are looking for something bold and juicy, this watermelon art should be your choice.
These stiletto nails, as well, look like they’ve been inspired by Katy Perry’s music videos. And that totally makes sense since Katy Perry has been killing it on the stage lately.
#26: Mean Tiger
Are you a woman who likes to be bold and rawr’s a lot? Luckily for you, fur and cheetah will always be in fashion, as well as in 2022. This nail design has been lit and just right for posh princesses who love to steal the spotlight.
#27: Little Tiger
Now if you are more on the quiet side, that doesn’t mean you can’t have cheetah nails. This mini version has been loved worldwide and styled by a lot of older women as well. They are trendy and adorn mostly because of their low maintenance and short appealing look.
#28: Too Stylish
Actually, when I think about it, there isn’t anything that is too stylish in this world. Yeah, these nails do look a little bit extra, but definitely not too stylish.
They have been a trend this year mostly because of the Kardashians and their brave and strong nail game. However, your nails don’t have to necessarily end up looking like these.
If you are a fan of weird shapes, long nails, and super sparkly ones, you know what to do and where to go.
#29. That Glow
The most amazing party nails ever, right? Imagine showing up to a party and glowing like this. These nails are perfect for a rave. Who needs glow sticks when all your 10 nails are light?
- You’ll be needing: a pair of scissors, your base coat, and a glow stick.
- First, you cut your glow stick in half really carefully.
- Watch out for the liquid, not to poor anywhere else besides into your nail polish.
- Add the glow, and stir the liquid with your nail brush. Preferably, if your glow sticks are pink, you should have a light pink or white nail polish, just for the closest and successful color matching. Shake your nail polish after you’ve added the pop of glow to it, and start applying.
- The final step: Get out and shine.
There is no chance that you will go unrecognized with these perfect for Valentine’s Day nails. They are so cute, ladylike, and not hard to do at all.
Instead of going for a square or ballerina shape, you should go for the rounded ones. They just make your hearts at the end pop better and look more gentle and feminine than they would if you had a rough sharp pointy end.
After shaping them, a simple base coat, a white polish, and a steady hand will get the job done.
Tip: If you are not as steady as you should be, then use a toothpick to draw out the ends of your hearts, and then just fill in the middle with your brush.
#31. Shiny Choo
These are the real diva glam nails. If you are all about that shine bright like a diamond moment, this mani is the next one on your list.
After applying two layers of your nail polish, start dipping your fingernails one by one into glitter. Don’t let the second coat dry. That way they will stick faster and more even since your whole finger is in the container.
#32. Blackest and darkest
Do you like your nails like you like your coffee? During this year you will probably have a moment where you will want to look a little bit more mysterious and dark.
So these are the perfect combination for you to try in 2022. They should be extra long, matte and black will look fabulous with any accessories.

“Marble nails are on the top of the list when it comes to popular nail styles this year. Many clients ask for it, but besides the classic marble manicure from the last years, they come with different demands.
