Top Nail Trends For 2022

Top Nail Trends For 2022

Every year has fashion trends, but those trends aren’t only limited to clothing. Nail polish is a great way to add a small but personal touch into your everyday life. Nail polish is an easy form of art expression that you can change as often as you would like. Having your nails painted is a great commitment free way of adding a splash of colour, class, and creativity to your look. And a day at the spa for a pedicure and a manicure is a great self-care indulgence for the new year. Here are some artistic trends you can expect to see popping up on your instagram feed and in the spa in 2022!

Nail Trends Of The New Year

Trending Colours

  • Periwinkle. While last year reveled in dusty pinks and sage greens, 2022 is the year of periwinkle. This soft blue-purple isn’t only the top trend for nails, it is expected to be the colour of the year and people are loving it! This soft yet bold colour is making a comeback due to its unique hue that manages to be bright, yet subdued and new, yet comforting.
  • Blues. While 2021 saw the rise of green polishes, the trend is expected to transition slightly on the colour wheel to shades of blue. Often thought of as a calming, natural colour associated with water, blue nails are making a splash! Ranging from deep royal blues to airy pastel blues and encapsulating the popular periwinkle, blue nails are all the rage for 2022.
  • Black. The classic black nail never goes out of style. As a simple yet effective statement piece, the black nail trend is continuing on with strength. Black is popular as a sleek look for formal attire, but it also works well with the all black leggings and shirt combo for a comfy day at home. Black polish is also continuing to rise in popularity with men.
  • Neutral Pinks and Browns. Not only are these colours popular separately, they are often used together to create a fun yet subtle look that goes with any outfit. Often done with light shades of the two colours, this combo is a spin on a nude polish look that is simultaneously professional and youthful.
  • Metallics. What matches with your silver and gold rings better than silver and gold polish? Following the already popular multicromes and foil flakes, pops of silver, gold, and rose gold, are expected to be seen alongside their corresponding colour of jewelry for a touch of luxury in any look.
  • Bright Pinks. The rise of the pro-pink trend started with an earlier love of the shade deemed “millennial pink,” a subtle, dusty rose shade. Now the transition is to brighter pinks as we all search for bright, cheery colours to lift our spirits.

Nail Art Trends

Inspired By Nature. Nail art inspired by the many facets of nature have already seen a rise in popularity and it is expected to continue rising. Ocean waves, sunsets, galaxies, and crystals are all nail art trends that are becoming increasingly sought after. As the nail art community continues to thrive on Youtube, Pinterest, Instagram, and more, these elaborate nail trends are expected to have a long and fruitful life.

  • Fun French Tips. The only thing better than the classic French tip is a new, creative twist on the French tip. Expect to see the tips of nails adorned with bright colours, glitter, metallics, or new tip shapes as people find fun innovative ways to improve on the classic nail favourite.
  • Matte Top Coats. Any of the above trends can be changed by merely adding a matte top coat. It is an easy way to take your manicure up a notch with no nail art skills required. Mattifying your manicure or pedicure can instantly change the look to something warm, professional, and unique.

Treat Your Nails To A Manicure And Pedicure At Glo Skin & Medspa In Edmonton

Proper nail care is not a trend; keeping your nails healthy, cared for, and shaped will never go out of style. If you want to give your nails some professional pampering, come to Glo Skin & MedSpa in Edmonton. With Glo Skin’s spa services, you can select the perfect polish for your pedicure or manicure and you can get hydration into your cuticles and surrounding skin that will help prevent your nails from breaking or chipping. At Glo Skin, our beauty spa services include gel manicures, so that your nail look can last for longer, and relaxing pedicures to care for your feet during the dry Edmonton winters. If you want to start 2022 by looking and feeling cared for, call us at 1-780-481-9772 or fill out the contact form.


Q: What types of manicure and pedicure options does Glo Skin offer?
A: Our manicure and pedicure options include different levels of care as well as regular and gel polishes. To view all of our nail spa services, visit our Nail Care page here or call our location in NW Edmonton.

Q: Are manicures and pedicures for men too?
A: Yes, we offer manicure and pedicure services to everyone. Manicures and pedicures are not exclusive to women and are an excellent form of relaxing and hygienic self-care, which is becoming increasingly popular with men. Many men find relief from ingrown toe-nails and enjoy getting regular pedicures.

Q: I’m interested in a manicure, but I’m not great at upkeep. Is it worth it?
A: If you want year round soft, smooth hands and feet and perpetual painted nails then regular manicures and pedicures are a great way to achieve that. But if that’s not something you’re interested in, you don’t need to continuously get them. A manicure, even with gel polish, is not the same as getting gel nails or acrylic nails which grow out and need to be replaced or filled off by a professional. If you’re interested in an occasional spa service to refresh your nails and skin, don’t be concerned about upkeep. And if you’re interested in polish that lasts longer, try a gel polish option. Manicures, pedicures, and other beauty spa services are often worth it even for the sake of doing something nice for yourself and getting some much deserved self care.
