Top 5 spring nail designs trending in 2020

A woman’s hands are her label, as they are an important detail people observe when they first come into contact. Whether you shake your hand to meet someone or you’re at the table while eating, everyone will notice how your nails look like. Women always want to be fashionable, to wear what is on-trend according to the season. That being said, it is important to keep yourself informed, especially when it comes to nail trends.

We all adore staying at the salon while doing our nails, isn’t it? But we’re never decided when it comes to choosing a new color or a new shape. Luckily, there are many options to take inspiration from for having unique nail designs. We just have to take a nail dip in the right style and colors and our pretty nails will be all prepared to speak high fashion!

A recent survey shows that British women spend around 450 pounds a year on their nails. Yes, that’s pretty much! Moreover, even if you thought the contrary, women spend more on their nail art than on their hair because of the need to always refresh the gel. According to Daily Mail, nails have become an essential expression of individual style and are now considered the defining accessory of an outfit. 96% of women say they feel better about themselves when they have had their nails done. 

Now that we discussed how important it is to always maintain your nails impeccably, let’s see which are the nail trends this spring season. Are you ready? 🙂

1. Royal blue

Being as simple as complicated, the royal blue is the expression of an electric personality that gives us a bold, bright look. As even its name says it, blue is a special color because it is the most preferred by the U.K.’s Royal Family. We’ve seen so many times Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton in such stunning royal blue dresses! This color looks amazing on every kind of nails – short, long, stiletto, coffin, matte or glittery. You can mix it however you want, it will give a note of elegance and class on your client’s hands. 🙂

2. Pastel colors

Which better way to welcome the springtime than with pastel nails? It’s been a long, cold winter and we are all bored with the dark nail colors. Let’s celebrate the arrival of the warm season in our life with some colorful nails. There’s a large palette of colors you can use and you can combine them in different styles like french manicure, baby boomer, designing shapes or simply applying a different color on any finger. There’s something cheerful about adding those soft shades on your nails into this winter-spring time. Just try it and let your clients enjoy their pretty candy nails. 🙂

3. Animal print

Animal print seems to be an intimidating addition to your look. Even if you’re a lover of the wildlife or you just want to have a feline print on yourself, animal print never goes out of trend. Lately, this pattern is everywhere, especially on ladies’ nails. Animal print themed nails are the most glamorous and extravagant, expressing in the best way your interest in fashion. From the leopard spots to the tiger or zebra prints, you can shape the perfect nails with every kind of color- it will look stunning anyway!

4. Matte polish

Many ladies tend to be a little bit reticent when it comes to the matte nail polish. We’ve all heard that it is more difficult to maintain them than the glossy ones. Personally, when I tried for the first time the matte nail polish I fell in love. For the entire year, I had the same matte-french model on my nails. I know, my nail artist got crazy about that…sorry again. 🙂 Matte doesn’t have to mean boring or fade, so go buy some matte polish and make those nails look as simple as awesome possible. 

5. Metallic nails

This is the most extravagant and eye-catching nail trend of all the time. The best part of it is that it reflects the light in hundreds of different colors and creates a unique mirror effect. Added on every kind of color you wish, the metallic nails will add a note of glam to every outfit, no matter the season. 2020, stay tuned to shine bright!

Now that you know which are the colors, shapes, and models you should apply this spring, it’s time to talk a little bit about something that’s still actual: hydration. I know we’re all talking about spring arrival and warm-season but It’s still cold outside and our skin suffers because of that. Why not spoil your clients a little bit with some hand treatments for recovering faster their dry skin? 

Some things won’t go away, no matter how hard you scrub

It may seem to be a joke, but it’s like that. Luckily, when it comes to dry skin, the scrub really works! After you finish doing the nails to your client, put some scrub on her hands and massage for 2 minutes. She’ll feel like having silk hands after that! 🙂

Apply natural oil treatments

This is a cheap and beneficial technique you can use for hydrating your ladies’ hands. Even if you think about using coconut, olive or lavender oils, they will all smell amazing and will nourish the tissue of their hands. 

Paraffin treatments

Paraffin wax is a salon treatment used for manicures and pedicures in order to hydrate the skin. It creates a barrier on the skin that helps retain the oils that our body naturally produces. It is also a warm, relaxing way to help your skin stay happy and healthy. So, darling, it’s the perfect season to use it right now. 🙂

Cream samples

You spoil them at the salon…but give them the opportunity to spoil themselves at home too! They will talk about you day and night if you take care of them permanently. Which better way to do it than to share some free cream samples? Sharing is caring, so take care of them, and they will take care to remember and to recommend you too. It’s a promise! 🙂
