Spring Fashion and Nail Trends for 2018

Spring 2018

Call us eager, but we love spring and spring nail colours! It may still be occasionally snowing outside, but there’s no harm in a positive outlook; we’re already seeing many of our clients choosing pretty pastels for their manicures as a way to escape the gloomy grey weather, and we’re encouraging it.

The thing is, pastel colours are actually a perfect transition from the end of winter too, they go with so many outfits as they’re quite neutral, and can look elegant in any weather. We’ve taken the hard work out of choosing your favourite pastel shade this month.


Is it really any surprise designers have felt an American influence on their designs this Spring? With the impact Trump has had on the world this year and last, some designers have paid homage and political commentary to the big USA. Either way, we love old school Americana; to work the style, pair vintage varsity jackets with boyfriend jeans, or go country with cute gingham dresses. This style is comfy and cosy too, and giving us some serious sunshine vibes.
To channel this look in your nails, go bright blue with Artistic’s “Aim to Chill”, or ask our techs to paint some pretty stars and stripes in subtle pastels.

Pretty Prints



The days of prints clashing are long over according to the SS18 catwalks, designers are all for wearing polkadots and florals together, with lashings of textured fabrics to finish the look. To rock it, scour your local charity shop for pretty silk scarves for a much cheaper alternative to Dolce and Gabbana’s floral scarves, and wear with as many prints as you like – to break up the clash, style with bold, black accessories.

To wear the look on your nails book in for some floral nail art and match with bold, solid glitters. Artistic’s “Imperial” is a good choice as a base.


Neons require a touch of bravery, but if the fashion editors are right, everyone’s going to be wearing them in spring, good thing is we have loads of neon brights in Artistic nail colours – in fact “Polka Dottie Hottie” is one of our firm favourites.
If you’re not up for wearing a 80’s rave-esque rainbow, choose just one of your favourite neon tones and contrast with a bright matte lip colour.
