Gone Are the Days of French Manicures or Nude, Natural Nails! Today It Is All About Colorful Acrylics, Extravagant False Nails, and Indie Nails for Fall 2021. Take a Look at Some of These Current Social Media Trends!
Let's start with two key terms in the world of nail trends today:
The term 'false nails' has historically been associated with lower classes and branded as 'cheap' and 'fake' both in the industry and among consumers. Today, however, fake nails have become mainstream thanks to social media mega-influencers such as Kylie Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Billie Eilish, who frequently showcase colorful nails that are out of the box, in different colors, lengths and textures. Therefore, when nail colors and texture trends change rapidly, consumers realize that artificial nails can give them the advantage of carrying the latest trendy looks, and keep up with the pace of trends.
Towards the upcoming fall and throughout 2022, nail art trends will evolve even further. Aside from the common French tip trend and its many spin-offs, 'indie nails' will become the most popular manicure trend this season. Recent Pinterest searches show that searches for "indie nails" are surging up 21%, but what are they? Generally speaking, indie nails are whatever you want them to be - especially if they're multicolored, sparkling, or just out of the ordinary - so you end up with a completed manicure.
Now that we have covered these two key terms, we can turn our attention to the most popular nail style predictions for next season:
You can't miss out on these intriguing, edgy and totally in-style nail shapes. A coffin nail is long like a stiletto nail, but instead of a pointy end, it flattens out toward the middle. Though it is not the most pleasant of descriptions, it is true of this nail shape - angular and defined, and when done right it has very little rounding (some people alternatively call them ballerina nails).
