31 Cute Nail Designs Fashion Girls Are Already Adopting

There's something about the non-permanent nature of nails that encourages more adventurous choices. Since you're signing up for a maximum of three or four weeks with any particular design, you feel free to branch out and choose something experimental as opposed to say, a hair colour that involves a much bigger commitment. A bold nail choice is just a fun way to test out new trends and express yourself with no strings attached. 

Fashion girls, of course, already know this and are always introducing cool new nail designs I find myself saving to show my manicurist. Recently, I've noticed three designs sprinkled in my Instagram feed, and I predict you're about to see them everywhere. From geometric shapes to reimagined florals, below are the 31 cute nail designs fashion girls are already adopting. 

GEOMETRIC

Sharp angles and geometric shapes are all over the fashion set as of late. I'm particularly fond of those done in a bold colour or pastel hue. It feels perfectly on-trend yet screams summer at the same time. I'm also loving the inclusion of the checkerboard trend into nail designs like the below mani.

NEGATIVE SPACE

Leave it to fashion girls to incorporate the naked trend into nail design. Leaving some negative space within the design is huge right now, but it certainly doesn't mean the mani has to be boring. Think neon-coloured designs, cute prints, and new takes on classic French tips.

FLORAL

I know what you're thinking: Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. But nail art has reimagined the classic floral designs to include pops of metallic, negative space, and bold colours. These are far from your grandma's florals, and they're about to be everywhere.
