2021 is finally here and I’m so ready for some new trends! Color is becoming more and more popular and the trends for 2021 just seem happier in general.
The 2021 nail trends are no exception! I’m especially loving the light blues and sage green tones. Everything is very colorful yet muted; extremely vibrant colors aren’t super in right now. Look to pastel variants and dark, soft tones instead of bright punk pop tones.
I rounded up my favorite nail trends this year and laid them out below. You’ll notice that some of the trends are repeated in different ways or with different colors.
In my opinion, the most popular trends this year are:
• Floral designs, especially leaf branches or flower bouquets
• Cloud designs
• Abstract art, especially including faces
• Colored tips (I really love gold) with neutral nails
• Pale colors, but many different colors as well
• Geometric patterns
• Cow print designs in all colors
I’m including a bunch of different combinations of these trends below to give you some inspiration!
If you get your nails done at a salon, I recommend checking in with your technician ahead of time to see if they’re able to accomplish these designs. You can also do some variation of the design depending on their skill level.
Alternatively, you can find a lot of great press-on nails on Etsy in tons of cool patterns. I love having some of these trendy press-on nails in my nail drawer in case I don’t have a chance to get my nails done!
