The 2023 nail trends that are taking over, according to the pros


With each new calendar year comes a whole new set of beauty trends. But when it comes to nails, the biggest trends of 2023 are frankly not trends at all. In fact, we see a return to the classics. Sure, they’re somewhat lofty and endlessly chic classics, but the sentiment remains true. “I see a shift to a more minimalist version of trends,” says Tweezerman celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik (opens in new tab), who works with stars like Selena Gomez and Jennifer Lopez. “It’s getting easier and cleaner.” Shorter nails are taking the place of extra-long acrylic nails, fun finishes like chrome and velvet are pushing bright, bold designs to the sidelines, and French manicures, which got a funky spin as one of the 2022 nail trends, are getting even more dainty and elegant.

Don’t get me wrong: there are absolutely no rules when it comes to choosing your perfect manicure.
