Florals? For Fall? Even Miranda Priestly would agree with us when we say that it is, in fact, groundbreaking. Living through an uncertain, unpredictable, and (mostly) crazy year has undoubtedly distorted our sense of time. 2020 has quite literally been a rollercoaster, with March being the sluggish uphill part of the ride and the rest of the year a frenzied blur. Perhaps that explains why dainty florals – characteristic to warmer months – are trending for fall.
While flowers have undeniably made their way into our fall wardrobes (courtesy of viral trends), they have also blossomed in the nail world. When chic, sophisticated floral manicures repeatedly appeared on our IG feeds after every few scrolls, one thing was evident: floral nail art is one of the viral manicure trends of the season. Unlike previous floral nail art trends, the 2020 version is a minimalist’s dream come true.
Expertly shaped nails with meticulously painted tiny daisies on a nude or a clear base coat make a clear winner. Vivid colored flora stamped on plain or colored backgrounds are also hugely popular. Another smart way to adopt the trend is by painting a single nail with floral patterns to make it stand out among solid colored nails.
