Hanna is super excited about Orly’s Builder in a Bottle product, which she says has totally changed the nail extension game. “It makes gel nail extensions super easy, which is great because it’s a much healthier alternative to toxic acrylics.”
Sarah Gibson Tuttle of Olive and June says we can expect to see metallics continue to dominate our feeds. “Everything from warm rose gold to icy platinum,” she predicts.
According to Hanna, negative-space manicures never go out of style, but she suspects we’ll be seeing even more minimalistic designs as the year continues.
Lauren Dunne, co-founder and CEO of Varnish Lane, predicts that dark greens are going to be big. “It’s a shade that people weren’t comfortable wearing for a long time, and they’re just now realizing that it’s an extremely universally flattering shade that gets tons of compliments.”
For spring, Tuttle expects to see shades reminiscent of a garden party. “We are in a sage, sunny yellow, and pinky lavender mood,” she explains. “Adding a higher concentration of white into shades really makes the color pop.”
Matte manis are definitely making a comeback according to Tuttle. “Matte topcoat has become one of our most requested products as of late,” notes the Olive & June founder.
