WOW what a beautiful sunny bank holiday! ☀️Could not resist sharing these rainbow nails, in all their sunny glory! They’ve been a big hit and after the tutorial featured in Daily Mail @femail, they were also featured this week in @the.independent (alongside the green French mani in their header image!) I also shared some top nail tips and expert advice with The Indepedent on how to create nail art at home. Swipe to see 👉🏼 & head to the PRESS IG highlight for more 👆🏼📰 ~ Mets — Manicure created using @barrymcosmetics Hi Vis Neon Nail paints & prepped with @navyprotools (use code METS10 for £ off all Navy.) 🌈 💙 The nail art tutorial is available on the @nailsbymets IGTV & was intentionally created with nail polish to show everyone how to create fun nails at home during lockdown! 💅🏼 — If you’d like to learn more nail art, come & join the #NBMInstanailparty tomorrow (Saturday) @ 8pm, right here on @nailsbymets Live! The theme is POP ART & it’s open to ALL (and free!)

2. Butterfly nails

Get creative with this gorgeous butterfly design. “Butterflies are a definite show-stopper this year”, says Amy. “They are really simple to do yet effective. You don’t have to be a nail art expert to create them and depending on your skills you can start basic or add more details for a more advanced butterfly.”

“Graffiti and pop art are becoming more popular, with people being a lot more adventurous with their nail designs.”

3. Tie dye nails

“These are a nod to all the festivals we should have been at, but that were cancelled”, says Metta. Stick to pastel colours to bring the tie dye trend bang up-to-date.

4. Animal print nails

Encourage your clients to be bold this summer. Metta says, “Thanks to the Tiger King, animal print - especially tiger print - has become really popular.”

5. Graffiti nails

Make a statement with these graphic nails. Amy says, “Graffiti and pop art are becoming more popular, with people being a lot more adventurous with their nail designs.”

6. Fruit-inspired nails

Pineapples, lemons, strawberries - brush up your skills for these delicate fruit creations.

7. Tropical nails

We might not be going on holiday this year. But at least we can have some beach vibes on our nails!

8. Neon nails

Break out the neon nail polish… “Neon is really big in sportswear and athleisure wear”, says Metta. “You’ll see this sports luxe in nail design as well, with flashes of neon rather than one block colour.”
