While the general vibe for makeup trends this year feels minimal and natural, 2023 is set to be the year where nail art well and truly steals the spotlight when it comes to creativity and experimentation within the beauty space. From new takes on classics like the French manicure through to 3D effects and chrome textures and accents, the best nail art trends for 2023 prove that a fresh mani really is the ultimate accessory.
One thing is for certain; 2023 is going to be full of surprises. “Nail art is such a fun method of self-expression but trends move fast these days,” says Millie Horton, nail artist and founder of Doll Parts. “I think the vibe for nail art this year is reimagining the classics and putting your own spin on trending designs. It’s much more fun creating whatever you like now that the days of copy-and-paste designs are over.”
