The Hottest Nail Trends of 2018

The Hottest Nail Trends of 2018.

Summer is in full swing and there’s no time like the present to take a look at the biggest nail trends of the year. So whether you’re a pastel lover or obsessed with fashionable metallic, we’re confident that you’ll find a nail art look that you love in the nail trends featured below.

Choosing the top 3 nail trends was rather hard because nail art has evolved into a myriad of beautiful designs but after much deliberation, these three trends stand out because they have been featured on runways around the world and we simply can't wait to see how you incorporate them into your summer style.

Top 3 Nail Trends of The Year

1. Pretty As A Petal

Fashion often draws inspiration from and mimics nature and since we are in the warm summer season where pretty flowers are in bloom all around us, why not take a cue from nature and adorn your nails with delicate flower petals and leaves for a wildly beautiful look as shown in the photo above. 

Explore nail colors from lush forest greens to bright, sunny yellows and for an ultra modern look try alternating the placement of petals on each nail or switch up your colors. In this style, matching is definitely not required!

2. Elegant Metallics

If you like a look that will truly stand the test of time, empowering metallics are the way to go. These shimmery nails are “in” from one season to the next. And no wonder as they exude classic elegance. For something more subtle, choose chrome colors and paint one flawless layer on each nail. Think shimmering rose gold, gun metal grey and electric violet. You also can’t go wrong with a sophisticated silver. After all, it’s about being feminine but edgy!

3. Power Through Words

In 2018, we’ve seen plenty of social awakenings whether it’s through the #MeToo movement or standing up for our climate (without getting too political!). This cute nail design where freedom of speech meets artistic expression is perfect for speaking out about the people you love and the causes you care about or even just to express your personality! 

If you’re not feeling too confident about using calligraphy to spell out the letters on your nails yourself, you could always try nail art to effortlessly achieve the same effect while making a fabulous style statement.

For a lighthearted and fun take on the word nail art trend spell out words like 'Love'.

Now that you're in-the-know on the top nail trends of 2018, we can’t wait for you to try them. For more on the latest nail styles and to learn how to D.I.Y your own pretty nail designs, visit We Heart Nails.
