Strips of Sparkle Nail Paint

For those who love simplicity with a touch of sparkle, this nail art is for you, and you must try it out in 2022. The strips of sparkle nail paint are the perfect idea of a manicure with embellishments. You can make your mani feel more modern and stylish by adding graphic lines and a minimalist sparkly design to your nails. For example, you can apply a thin line of black nail polish and then coat it with glitter nail paint, and voila! You have beautiful, shiny nails to show off.

Metallic Manicures

Simplistic designs appeal to many folks and adding a touch of glamour always makes it better. Metallic manicures are just the right fit for this. The new trend is to decorate your nails with these metallic designs. The design can be bold like a chain of embellishments, or it can be a minimalist design like a strip of gold along the edges of your nails. You can try out this trend using chrome nail polish, metal embellishments, transfer foils, or foil flakes. This is going to become one of the trending nails of 2022.

Abstract Swirl Nail Designs

Swirls have been persistently trending since last year, and it is unlikely to disappear in 2022. These are so much in demand because of how quirky the designs can get. Also, there is a lot of scope for experimenting with colors and techniques. For example, you can try painting abstract swirls on the tip of your nails or all over your nails; this nail trend will look chic either way.ย

Customize and Personalize

The pandemic has provided many individuals with the scope to experiment with nail art. With pop sensation Harry Styles launching quirky nail colors, the idea of customized and personalized nail art has already taken off, and it is likely to become more prevalent in 2022. It simply means bringing out your inner mood and featuring it on your fingertips. For example, wear black nail paint one day, the next day embellish it with some metallic designs, and the very next day, apply five different colors to your nails. The idea is to allow artistic freedom to create and play around with designs without craving consistency or uniformity.

Lettered Nail Stickers

Mostly popular among pop stars and Hollywood actors, lettered nail stickers are in demand. This trend lets you express your mood or opinion through letters (in any language) or digits on your fingers. You can keep it simple with your initials or something that counts as a favorite. 

Let 2022 be the yearโ€ฆ

Let 2022 be the year that you let down all your inhibitions and experiment with designs. If we have learned anything from the last two years, itโ€™s that life is too short to abide by the rules. So create your nail art, mix and match, experiment, play around with colors, and go crazy with these nail predictions in 2022.
