Summer Nail-Art Trend 2022: Up in the Clouds
There's something about summer that has us suddenly rushing to pick up the nail polish and get creative. Perhaps it's that our social calendar has opened up, holidays are back on the horizon, or we simply want our nails to look as cute as our summer outfits, but we're ready to attempt salon-worthy nails while sitting in the garden.
Once you have the basic equipment (think: base coat, topcoat, a few colours, a nail brush, and even a few accessories), all it requires is imagination, a steady hand, and perhaps a little patience. To help get your creative juices flowing, we asked some of the best nail artists in the UK to share their top trends for the summer. They also gave their top tips for re-creating them so you feel confident about giving them a go.
From easy-peasy, pretty accent nails with a twist (because as nail artist Kate Williamson put it, "we can do better than the classic 2000s ring-finger accent nails") to more intricate designs like those inspired by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, you're sure to find nail-art ideas to suit both your taste and your skill level.
Read on to get some fresh summer nail-art inspiration that we promise will have you tapping into your inner artist in no time.
