Hottest Nails Trends For 2024 And 50 Ideas cover

2024 is here, and as the new has started, trying something new to refresh yourself and recharge batteries seems a good idea. There are many trends that are currently on and some new trendy colors that might help you feel the new era of your life starting, and today’s roundup is dedicated to top 2024 nail trends.

Shape

Short Square Nails

The most popular nail shape this year will be short, square nails. That happens because of the current trends for clean girl aesthetic and old money and quiet luxury. Such nails are also so much easier to maintain and more achievable for those who don’t like nail enhancements.  After years of acrylics and gel-X extensions, our nails are all pretty beat—but opting for short lengths and light shades make it easier to start giving your nails some much-needed TLC. Top your manicure with a strengthening top coat or layer on a bond-building nail treatment to help repair your nails. And of course, a dose of daily cuticle oil is a must for healthy-looking nails, especially when you’re opting for a shorter length.
