Get Ready To Shine Because Metallic Manicures Are Having A Moment

Over the chilly winter months, glazed, or frosted, nails were everywhere. Now that the weather is *finally* starting to warm up, the nail looks are getting even glossier. This might have something to do with the fact that you get mega-shine when the sun hits your fingertips! If you’re wondering what to ask for when you next go to the salon, metallic manicures are officially in for spring/summer 2023.

Shimmer and shine

This season, it’s out with the flat, matte hues and in with molten metals because metallic nails are having a moment. Originally popularised in the 1980s, this fun trend is experiencing a resurgence when it comes to manicures. 

Not limited to gold, copper and silver shades (although they do look great), metallic nail polish comes in almost any colour imaginable.

If, however, you usually stick to a neutral colour palette, there are metallic hues that fit the brief and will elevate your nails. These can include light golds, silver and shimmery blacks, greys and browns.

Love the trend, but think it might be difficult to pull off a metallic manicure at the office or with a casual daytime look? You don’t have to commit to a full, shiny set. Instead, have one accent nail on each hand or do some DIY nail art using a lacquer with a metallic finish.

Are you going to be wearing the metallic nails trend? Load up on lacquers online or at an Edgars store near you.
