The negative space manicure was one of the biggest trends of 2022, and it’s set to continue well into 2023. Celebrities and everyday women alike rocked this look, which is simple yet stunning.

How do you achieve a “negative space” manicure? It’s easy. Start by painting your nails with your desired base color. Once the polish is dry, take a small brush and paint the nail bed with a contrasting color. You can be as creative as you want with this—try painting different shapes or using different colors for each nail. For a professional take, book a nail appointment with your nail tech.

Think of the top nail trends for 2023, and natural matte neutrals are likely to be at the top of everyone’s list. This timeless look will never go out of style and can complement any outfit, no matter the color or cut.

Best of all, this fuss-free style is easy to achieve at home. Start by buffing your nails until they’re smooth, then apply a base coat. Choose a nude shade that matches your skin tone as closely as possible, and apply it in two coats. If you want to add a little shine, finish with a top coat.

Just in time for the winter months, it’s all about geometric and sharp accent nails. Cut your nail shapes into triangles, squares, or any other creative shape to give your fingers an edgy look. To create this look, use a dotting tool and liquid latex to help you stay clean. You can go as simple or intricate as you like when painting your designs.  If you’re feeling extra bold, you can contrast your design by using a different color on each nail and creating a rainbow on your fingertips.

This trend is perfect for those who love nail art and want to show off their skills. No matter what design you choose, sharp accent nails are sure to turn heads and have people asking you where they can find such beauty. Little wonder why they’re on the nail trends for 2023.

Consider adding accents and glitter to drive home a look. The allure of accents and glitter is that they add that extra sparkle to your digits. Accents can be anything from foil wraps, which provide a high-shine look, to 3D textures like caviar beads, rhinestones, and sequins, which can be used as an accent for some extra texture.

Glitter is also set to take the lead in 2023, with larger pieces offering a bold, eye-catching, standout look. And if you’re feeling daring, layer different colors for a creative twist. To finish the look, consider adding some silver or gold details for added depth and glamor.

Stand out from the crowd with DIY nail art and unlock levels of creativity. There’s no limit to what you can formulate. If you’re feeling imaginative, why not try painting flowers, fruits, vegetables, or even your favorite characters?

You don’t need a lot of tools—just some base polish and a few colors of your choice. You can also experiment with materials like sequins, beads, and rhinestones to create unique textural effects. Use narrow brush strokes for fine details, or add a layer of glitter on top to make your nails sparkle. DIY is winning as one of the whimsical nail trends for 2023.
