The latest trends in awesome nail art

From pastel and pop colours to abstract patterns, graphic lines and poetic waves, nail art is more on trend than ever.

Previously the domain of true artists, nail art is now gaining more and more fans. Originating from Asia (more specifically South Korea), it travelled to France via social media and has been at the forefront of the cosmetic scene for several seasons.

More than a manicure, nail art customises your hands. It's a way of expressing yourself and affirming your personality or mood. In these troubled times, we're also very attracted by its fun and frivolous side.

Extreme vs minimalist

Some people like to push this trend to the max with ultra-customised XL nails, but you can just as easily adopt a more minimalist look: a touch of glitter on a nude nail, one nail in a different colour or a coloured French manicure smile line.

Yes, you're right, nail art requires a little skill and patience.

Your nails need to be clean, filed and buffed before you start. Whether you opt for Green polish or Green Flash gel polish, don't forget the base coat to protect the nail, and the top coat for lasting shine.

You need to use different accessories depending on the result you want: a sponge for graduated colours, stencils, stickers to place directly onto the polish, etc.

Ideal for fans of graphic patterns, our new nail art brush is ultra-fine for working with precision and creating intricate designs. The varnished handle is made from sustainably grown wood and the bristles are vegan. Let's create!
Pssst: Don't forget to clean the brush in nail polish remover every time you change colour and after use!

Colourblock manicure

This season's colour palette is bold and bright. While nude tones are still indispensable, vibrant shades like our ultra-red Anémone, bright pink Peonie, coral orange Bird of Paradise and electric blue Ultramarine are making their mark on your manicures.

And if you can't make your mind up, don't panic. A Rainbow French manicure is a must for summer.

The concept? Paint the tip of each nail in a different colour. To help you do this, we've created duos and trios of complementary colours for you to mix and match to your heart's content. A Rainbow French manicure is a great way to sport original nails without being a nail art expert. Simple and fresh, it's time to make a rainbow!
