Summer Nail-Art Trend 2020: Up in the Clouds
While none of us are able to get to a nail salon right now, that doesn't mean we can't whip out our small nail kits and get creative at home.
For a lot of us, lockdown means we've got slightly more time on our hands to experiment with hobbies that we miss and others we want to start up. For us beauty editors, one of those hobbies is nail art. Once you have the basic equipment (think: base coat, top coat, a few colours, a nail brush, and even a few accessories), all it requires is imagination, a steady hand, and perhaps a little patience. To help get your creative juices flowing, we asked some of the best nail artists in the UK to share their top trends for the summer. And not only did the nail artists predict the trends that'll be huge, but they gave their top tips about recreating them so that you can give the trends a try at home.
From easy-peasy, pretty accent nails with a twist (because as nail artist Kate Williamson put it, "we can do better than the classic 2000s ring finger accent nails") to more intricate designs like those inspired by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, you're sure to find nail art ideas to suit both your taste and your skill level.
Read on to get some fresh summer nail-art inspiration that we promise will have you tapping into your inner artist and taking up hours of your time — until your go-to nail salon starts to safely reopen and you can leave the tiny masterpieces to the pros.
