Over-the-top nail art and 2-inch talons are all the rage right now, as you’ve probably seen all over your ‘gram on the likes of celebrities such as Cardi B.

Some of us are just extra like that. We always have the biggest braids, most colourful clothes, and the flashiest nails. But what if you’re not into nails that are more extra than you are?

If you’d prefer a more low-key look, one that can go from weekend party to office chic without blinding your colleagues with swarovski studded talons, here’s a few of our favourite looks to give you some inspo before your next appointment at ISLA.

Get striped
Stripes are the fashion trend that never dies - meaning this minimal look wont go out of style. Try out a glittery gold stripe over a nude base coat for a chic-luxe look, or go a bit more colourful and add just the right amount of summer sunshine to your fingertips.

We’re so in love with this barely there cuticle art! Adorn your inner-tips with a few little gems, or go for a subtle glittery design like the sun-flames seen here.

Cut out colours
Match your nails to your SS19 capsule wardrobe and go for a cut out colour look that will highlight and accentuate your outfits without stealing the show.

Half-moon manis
Moon manis have been growing in popularity so much recently, and for good reason - they’re adorable. Invert the typical french-tip look for this topsy-turvy trend with either a bold colour and cut-away natural nail exposé or a simple colour-block over a clear base coat.

Floral fever
Spring is the season for the floral look, and there’s no better way to work the pattern than with some seriously cute nail art. We love these dainty floral looks that just scream “spring is coming!”

Matte magic
Perfect for a minimal mani is the matte look - whatever colour or design you go for, a matte top coat takes the look low-key while still giving those “got my nails did” vibes.

Here at ISLA there’s nothing we can’t do, whether that’s a seriously swish set of studded talons, or a minimal mani like the ones in this post - just let us know and we’ll work with you to create your perfect look. Head over to our Instagram for more inspo, and book in and treat yourself here.
