The Nail Trends to Look Out for in 2022

Manicures are going 3D.

Of all the beauty trends, nails are arguably the most fun to play with. And 2022 is proving to be no exception: From 2000s-era nail art to Pantone-approved nail polish, it’s going to be a well-manicured year to look forward to. We rounded up seven mani trends to be on the lookout for:

1. 3D Details

From hoops to chunky jewels, nail art is popping off—literally. It may not be the most practical trend of 2022, but it sure makes a statement.

2. Mix and Match

Wearing different looks on each nail is having a major moment, whether it’s different polishes, French mani colors, or full-on nail art.

3. Very Peri

When Pantone announced its 2022 color of the year, a dreamy blue-toned periwinkle, it was instantly evident that it would be the It nail color.

4. All the DIY

Since the pandemic, nail stickers, press-ons, and wraps have boomed—and the category is only growing. Even celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik (who works with Jennifer Lopez and Selena Gomez) has a line, pictured here.

5. Matching Manis

Machine Gun Kelly—who recently launched his own nail polish line, UN/DN—has recently been coordinating nail looks with girlfriend Megan Fox (to whom he is chained, here) and his daughter Casie. Expect to see more twinning tips, especially as male celebs continue to embrace the mani.

6. Shades of Green

Another color going strong into 2022? Verdant, refreshing green.

7. Y2K Motifs

As the 2000s resurgence carries on, so too does the return nail nostalgia. Flowers, smiley faces, mushrooms—if it would have been on a T-shirt at Gadzooks circa the new millennium, you can find it on your nails.
