Are you in doubt about what to wear for a party or a meeting with friends? Our suggestion is to go for a neutral brown. Of course, it’s important to pick up the right tone as there are plenty of brown “chocolate” shades you can wear on your nails. The most incredible aspect of wearing brown tones on your nails is that they go with everything and do not need anything else to add to make your nails look beautiful, while they also elevate any look.

Last year, everyone wore the Barbiecore trend on fashion statements, accessories, nails and footwear. We could see this stunning colour in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie (starring Margot Robbie) and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s jaw-dropping Spring/Summer 2023 collection. This year, this beautiful pink trend will continue following us into 2023.

While we love a good look on our nails, shiny accents will definitely make your hands look stunning and expensive as glitters show off your most stylish-royal side. What are you waiting to try on your nails? You can go for glitters in silver, gold or a mix of colour shades.

Nail jewellery and metallic will be big in 2023. Simple and clean manicures will be adorned with incredible and extravagant jewellery to really make a statement. Taking a look back at fashion weeks, some of them implemented extravagant accessories on nails. For instance, Schiaparelli Spring/Summer 2021 by Daniel Roseberry took this trend to new heights. Models wore gilded fingertip accessories, finger rings with extra-long gold-covered nails and more. Another fashion brand that took this trend for its collection was Iris Van Herpen with transparent 3D printed- nail accessories, and more. Just to mention some examples.
