The Decade-Long Evolution of Nail Trends

Past Nail Trends

 From crackle nails to simple french nails, nail designs have been an immensely versatile expression of self. In just a decade, we’ve seen nail designs and trends evolve to an extent where there seems to be a new trend almost every season. 

Back in 2011, we saw the crackle nails boom, where nails were painted with a crackle effect or were treated with a top coat specifically designed to achieve this look. Then, in 2013, we saw the emergence of accent nails, specifically on the ring finger, where the ring finger was painted or designed differently from the rest of the nails. We still see iterations of this today! 2016 is when shiny, holographic nails made it to the trendy-status. But now, we see nail trends emerging almost every season, even every holiday!

Trends of Today

There have been countless trends that have taken the world of nail art by storm. Nowadays, we see people gravitating towards more minimalist looks, with different iterations of the french manicure coming back into trend,  in addition to designs, such as the jelly nails, inspired by K-beauty, as well as Hailey Bieber’s pearl-pink nails that have been coined as “the nails of the summer.” With minimalism taking a storm in the current decade, that doesn’t necessarily mean that people have eliminated any artsy designs altogether, but rather, the designs people seem to gravitate towards are more subtle, tasteful, and playful.

Evolution of Nail Application

And beyond nail designs, we’ve seen an evolution of nail application methods over the past decade as well. Now, beautiful nails are not just born in a salon, but are accessible to people in the comfort of their own homes. This aspect of the nail industry has caused it to boom even further.  But often, DIY nails seem to lack in design variety and sometimes compromise the health of the nails.
