Fall into Florals
Why splurge on fleeting floral arrangements when acrylics last longer? The trend of acrylic florals began when golden sunsets transformed into something greener, and they’re here to stay. Much like the variety of flowers, there are various applications for this trend. With nail gel, dried petals, or other creative methods, everybody is recreating it in different forms. A personal favorite is this polygel set by Reel Nailz.
Fruits Served on Fine China
While November nail trends revolve around fruits, nail artists like Nailee PH have moved past the watermelon nail art of 2013 and taken the extra mile by adding gel to make them look realistic. Speaking of going the extra mile, this nail artist has even served citrus on fine china. Who knew that the freshness of fruits combined with the sophistication of porcelain would look so stylish?
Given that fruits are stealing the spotlight in nail trends, why not throw in some good grapes for something both sweet and stylish? Think deep purples and luscious tones that will take your nails to the next level. Nail artists like Fancy Nails by AJ are taking the grape trend beyond the vine, experimenting with various designs and techniques to make your nails pop.
Chunky and a Little Funky
When it comes to nailing timeless trends, ask a Gen Z girlie, and they’ll spill the tea on how chunky and funky manicures are always the go-to. No matter the season, these colorful canvases, flaunting mismatched designs, will consistently stand out. So, if you’re looking to let your nails do the talking, this trend should be the next thing you send to your nail tech. While you’re at it, why not try the lipstick shape as seen on Clawphoria Nail Studio?
