First, 2019 gave us negative-space nails (aka the "naked" mani), but now we've noticed that all the coolest girls on Instagram are nailing another mani trend. Flowers, glitter and plenty of pink—this latest nail art trend is über-cute and utterly adorable. They remind me of the kind of nails that I would have rocked to a birthday party at primary school, and I'm totally okay about that. Here are three of my favourites that are trending on Instagram right now.
This mix-and-match mani mixes bold brights and pastel polishes with flowers for a cool-girl take on colourful nails.
It's not just the canary yellow hue that brightens my day but the name that brings back memories of '90s ice cream. Plus, this polish also boasts a fresh and fruity scent for added retro points.
The downside to this nail polish is that I'm now going to have the Grease soundtrack in my head all day. The upside is that it's the most perfect satsuma hue that will take your nails through spring and into summer.
You could create the flowers for this look by dipping the end of a cuticle stick into polish and dotting onto nails to form a flower. However, if like me, you're lacking in the nail art department, then these flowers look beautiful pressed onto nails and sealed with a clear top coat.
ALL THAT GLITTERS
A sheer base and plenty of glitter helps this sparkly manicure feel modern.
DOT TO DOT
I'm seeing pink and red everywhere in the beauty world right now—and it looks equally cute on nails. A minimal but still adorable approach to nail art if you don't fancy going all out.
A cute strawberry milkshake pink polish formulated in Australia. If you're looking for vegan, cruelty-free polishes, then Kester Black does both with the added benefit of being free from the harmful chemicals that you traditionally find in nail varnish.
