Some women love long, carefully shaped talons. Others prefer short rounded nails. Manicure preferences are subjective, and trends are constantly changing. We say wear whatever you like, with confidence. But with so many options, it's nice to have some inspiration. So, we rounded up a slew of manicures that are sure to spark ideas for your own looks, from bright pops of colour to intricate designs. Whether you like something subtler (we're looking at you, nude nail devotees) or you crave a mani with more personality (trust, us, there's plenty of that here), you'll find something to suit you in our round-up. From subtle chic detailing to bold designs, there is something for everyone with this season’s most stylish nail trends – because life is too short for boring nails.

Mixed metals

Can’t decide whether you want silver or gold accents on your nails? It’s simple – go for both! We’re loving how minimalist yet beautiful this nail art looks. It adds a bit of sparkle and radiates festive vibes. You can also try mixed metal nails in other simple designs and patterns.

Pastel French manicure

Did you even really get your nails done, if you didn’t get a pastel French manicure? This nail art design has been all over Instagram and for good reason. It’s a level up from your basic French manicure, and adds a pop of colour to your look!

Colourful swirls

This abstract swirl design is giving us major retro vibes! Not only do these look super cool and funky, but they can also be recreated easily. Use a neutral coloured base, and add colourful swirls on top to achieve this look.

Subtle florals

Floral nail art is nothing new, but this trend is making a comeback once again. This nail art design is never going out of style, and it’s the use of pastel shades that makes the look stand out. If bright colours aren’t your thing, you can instead opt for subtle, muted shades like these with pretty floral designs.

Jewel tones

With jewel-tone colour block nails, a fall style update is right at your fingertips (literally). Balancing a combo of rich burgundy, emerald green, and sapphire blue with negative space is a chic, easy way to transition into the new season – especially when it’s not exactly full-on sweater weather yet.

Textured nails

This versatile design will surpass all others this season. Textures are huge for holiday requests. They include shimmer, foil-infused lacquer that are shiny and bright and even laces. Whether you're looking for a sparkling party design or just want a subtler pattern for the months beyond, request a textured look featuring materials like white lace.
