Classic nail styles

Classic Nail Styles

Some things, like classic nail styles, will always be around. With everything going on in today’s world, we find ourselves in a new norm. But with that new norm, comfort can be found in little things that you can do for yourself to brighten your day, like your nails. If you’re looking for a head-turning style to add to your self-care routine, you can’t go wrong with the classics. Check out some of the classic and not so classic nail styles, that made the cut on our favorites list this year.

Red – really, really red

No, really. It’s bold, it’s classic – it’s really, really red! There’s something about classic red nails that never goes out of style. Especially if you’re all about that perfect shade of polish.

Metallic magic

Can you even remember a time when metallic polish wasn’t in? Available in just about any color, metallic polish is still going strong and is one of our top picks this year.

Classic French

Is there anything more elegant than a classic French manicure? We didn’t think so either. Except if you want to add a little modern flair by drawing an even thinner white line beneath a thin black line.

Barely there ombre

This look is all about that graduated color palette but more subtle. A barely pink – pink with a gradual hint of lavender polish is so elegant!

A nail of a different color

Or five different colors! Choose five shades in the same color palette for nails that make a definite statement.

Greyed out

Grey as a color choice is not just trending for hair. Subdued, subtle shades of grey polish are sophisticated and stylish.

Jelly (glass) nails

Remember the colorful, transparent sandals from the 80’s? Well, jelly nails are also transparent and colorful! You can buy a press-on set or have your nail tech create the look using extensions.

Make your next home spa day one to remember with an unforgettable look! After all, it’s all about exploring new things and having a little fun with it.
