There’s a guaranteed quick fix for switching up your look and it involves your nails. While changing hair colours or opting for a crop is the definition of “new year, new me” vibes; going for a new nail look is way more accessible. 

Trends come and go but we’re super into the nail trends making their way into our beauty routines in 2021. We could all do with a dose of joy and excitement and that’s exactly what our nails need too. 

Whether you save this page to show to your nail artist or do it yourself at home, this is your go-to guide for finding your nail look for the year ahead.

Ready to welcome in some sunshine? Think bold, bright and joy-inducing for this look. Regardless of what the weather is doing outside, your nails will definitely uplift you. Lebrat-Personnaz says, “We saw a lot of fun bright shades being chosen by nail artists at the SS21 shows, such as beautiful Indian-inspired pinks and oranges.”
