The Nail Colors & Trends We'll See in 2023


Posted on January 19 2023


Ready to freshen up your manicure? 2023 is here and now's a great time to get inspired and find a new look! If you have no idea where to start, don't worry. We've got you covered. We're going to break down some of the top nail trends for 2023. Let's take a look at some of the hottest nail designs we'll see this year.

1. Glazed Donut Nails

This was a HUGE trend last year and it will continue to be popular going into this year. Made popular by Hailey Bieber and her nail artist, Zola Ganzorigt, the Glazed Donut Nail trend blew up because it's a look anyone can achieve, and chances are, you already have what is needed to achieve this look. We saw many versions of this trend, including Chocolate Glazed Donut Nails and Strawberry Glazed Donut Nails....and it is what it sounds like. Instead of using a nude color as your base, people used dark browns and light pinks to create their own twists on this popular trend.

2. Barely-There French 

We've seen modernized version of this classic nail design with colored tips, but this year, it's all about keeping it simple. French manicures will be very "thin" and "natural" for 2023. We also expect to see the reverse French mani with thin lines be popular this year too. It's chic, it's different, but simple and elegent at the same time.

3. Aura / Blush Nails

This nail trend started to catch on in 2022, but it's expected to be very popular this year. This style features a circular ombre effect that emulates a glowing aura. Some people have created this look with soft pinks and neutrals and call it the "blushed nail" look for its appearance.

4. Layered Textures

3D nail art has been around for a while, but expect to see MORE layered textures in the new year. This look can be achieved with different patterns, embellishments or decals to create a very eccentric, dimensional nail art look.

5. Nail Accents

If you're a beginner or someone who doesn't have a lot of experience with nail art, this is a great trend for you. From rhinestones, to playing with matte and glossy topcoats, these are subtle ways to achieve this trend if nail art isn't for you.

Now let's take a look at some of the nail color trends we expect to see in 2023. 


Being that this is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2023, we expect to see magenta become a popular nail color this year. A color like this works well during any season and pairs well with pretty much any look! It's a great go-to staple when you can't decide on your next nail color. A classic color like this will never go out of style.

Chromes / Metallics

With trends like the velvet nails and glazed donut nails being extremely popular last year, it will be no surprise to see chromes & metallics on the rise. This is a simple and effective way to add dimension to your manicure and create a shimmery, elevated look.

Nudes / Neutrals

It's no surprise that nude nail colors make the list every year. A nude nail color is the perfect option when you want something minimalistic or low-maintenance. It's okay to change up your manicure every once in a while and keep it natural-looking.

Olive Green

Before you knock this one, give it a try! If you're looking to experiment with a new color and haven't tried this one, this is your sign. You may recall that olive nails were trending near the end of the year, so it's expected that we will continue to see this color in 2023.
