The trend for healthy-looking hair followed a period of intense grooming and maintenance in lockdown. Now, nails are following suit: expect to see minimal manicures that show off healthy, pristine nails buffed to perfection everywhere you look in 2023. “Shades like OPI’s Bubble Bath and Love Is In The Bare are perfect for clean, simple nails,” explains manicurist Iram Shelton. These colors hide any imperfections while enhancing the nails for a look that is clean, well-manicured, and healthy. Low-maintenance everyday nails, sorted.
French manicures had a mini comeback last year, but for 2023, they’re even more desirable. “French manicures will be barely there and very thin and natural for 2023,” says Westmoreland of the updated classic. Think hardly noticeable, fine white tips that make hands and nails look chic and expensive. You’ll also see these fine lines applied in a reverse French—just as simple and impactful.
