“What were the biggest nail trends of 2018?”
Lauren reflects back. “In 2018 we saw a lot of moody deep tones on nails,” she said. By moody, we’re talking about the deep blues, purples and reds along with mixed metals like copper, gold and silver Combined with leathery earthy nude polish colors, the nail scene was down with the dark.
“However, a great nude never goes out of style and is classically chic.”
In regard to nail art, Lauren saw it have a moment in 2018. “We are starting to see more studs, jewelry, beads, chains etc. on nails and this is probably not going away, “ she said. “We saw an array of abstract designs, minimal designs and modern designs consisting of lines, dots, negative space, brush strokes, and more!”

“What nail trends do you see blowing up in 2019?”
Keep your eyes peeled for neon to come back, said Lauren. “Bright colors will be popular and a fresh manicure touting these on their own, or in the form of nail art either way will be showstoppers this season.”
Colors like Coachella Valley Sun, Baja Sunrise, and Catalina Cruise come to mind, with the growing popularity of pale bright colors and, of course, the mod look of white nail polish. Sheer neutrals like Buttercream Tiers will also become popular favorites to women on the go for a professional office look.
