Most popular nail trends 2024

There are new nail trends every year, and we love that.

To maintain beautiful nail hygiene and at the same time to be on-trend, it is important to keep yourself informed, especially when it comes to the current nail trends.

We all adore staying at the salon while doing our nails, right? But we’re never decided when it comes to choosing a new color or a new shape. Luckily, there are many options to get inspired by the most popular nail styles this year. We have to take a nail dip in the right style and color, and our pretty nails will be all prepared to speak high fashion!

With Peach Fuzz being the color of the year in 2024, I bet we’ll see, more than ever, nail artists playing with purple shades and tones while creating nail styles.

Aura Nails

Aura nails are a captivating trend that has entered the world of nail art this year. These mystical designs often incorporate a combination of iridescent colors, holographic finishes, and translucent elements, which imitate the shimmering hues of an aura. Nail technicians blend these elements to create a stunning, almost magical effect that changes with the light and angle.

Velvet Nails

Velvet nails are an opulent trend that has gained popularity for their luxurious appeal. These nails showcase a plush, velvety texture that highlights the softness of actual velvet fabric. Nail technicians achieve this effect by using special powders that adhere to the nail’s surface. Velvet nails come in a variety of colors, from rich jewel tones to subtle neutrals, allowing for endless customization.

As a nail tech of 11 years it is not called nails this is why I struggle when client are giving detail on what they want I always just ask for picture
Most tech in Cali call it the cat eye or magnet because you can change the position of the little shinny silver part ….

I would have love more shades of red as red has so many …

Next time call me for the next article I’d like to add to it because nails are my thing @mistybluebp

Finished nails are my very favorite female adornment and this is a great overview of the possibilities. I just love them all, but I am one who favors the less pointed styles, both for safety and the fullness of expression.

I love the look of these nails! They’re so fun and colorful but still classy. It’s a great way to update your look without making any major changes to your style.

My favorite is the very peri nails, especially the second one!
