Fashionistas are seen sporting multiple shades of blue, ranging from sky blue to navy. Some noteworthy examples include a French manicure in blue tones, minimalist nail art with sky blue accents, as well as full nails in sky blue and dark blue.
Red nail color has managed to hold its ground even after the holiday season, demonstrating its perennial popularity. Classic red nails and burgundy mixed with pastel pink and glitter are some ways this shade is being used to create visual intrigue.
The natural base manicure is holding its position of a top nail trend in nude color. Ideas for achieving this look include barely visible manicures and short square nails with metallic tips, as well as a chrome effect on a pastel pink base.

Nail art in 2024 is not just about colors. Multiple inspirations, from French chrome gold nails to animal prints, are also shaping the trends. For instance, leopard print has emerged as a key pattern in animal print-inspired nail art.
Additionally, the blush nails technique, which mimics the reddening of cheeks in cold weather, is gaining popularity. Other trendy inspirations include fairy blue nails with blue polish, chrome effect, and 3D metallic embellishments, and gradient nails in pink and blue.
