Red and White Flower Nail Art

Winter Florals

Flowers aren’t just for Spring and Summer as feminine floral nail art designs make their way into winter nails trends 2021. If you don’t fancy flowers on every nail, opt for a bold colour and incorporate that colour into a statement nail design.


Glitter Nails

Like metallic polish in winter, glitter nail art is a huge go-to for the holiday season! if you’re bored of a gradient manicure but don’t want to go full glitter, add a touch of sparkle to your regular manicure with a glitter statement nail or amp up a subtle sheer pink with tons of shimmer to keep things interesting.


The New French

There’s nothing more classic than a French tip. Give your ’00s favourite a fresh take for winter with a rounded shape instead of square or add a springy twist by having an icy pastel colour on the tips instead of typical white.


Tip & Mix Nails

Another twist on the classic French tip is adding nail art into the mix. Our specialist nail technicians are amazing at bringing nail art to life so why not try a tip and mix nail art design on your next visit and make your winter manicure more fun?


Matte Nails

Matte nails are having a moment. A popular choice in the salon. If all-over matte nail polish seems a bit too bland for your taste, a shiny metallic foil addition to the finish will definitely give it some much-needed oomph – just ask one of our nail girls.


70s Swirls

We are still loving the swirl nail trend this winter. Opt for a darker colour swirl to vamp up your manicure but pair your dusk swirls with a nude nail so it doesn’t detract from the design.


Blue Nails

You know what goes perfectly with cooler weather? Cool nails with cool colours. Opt for an icy or navy blue to make your nails feel wintery. And you can always pair blue polish with silver nail art or gems to add a little sparkle to your winter manicure.


Holographic Nails

Holographic nails are like jewellery for your fingertips – not only does this trend give the illusion that your nails are extra long but provides a bit of shine for those who don’t want to go all-out glitter this winter.


Nude Nails

For the true minimalists out there, nude nails is all you need. This year, less is more with nude and neutral nail designs becoming a trend. Try a reverse French style with some intricate nail art to keep your nails interesting. 


Metallic Nails

Metallic nails are a total celebration of everything we missed out on last year. Pair a metallic dark nail with a sequin top to have your Christmas party look sorted.


Festive Red Nails

Red nails transcend seasons, but it really shines during the holidays and is a festive favourite for a reason. Choose a sparkly cherry red to really shine this Christmas.
