Nothing spells festivity like Durga Puja in the city. It is the time when everyone puts their best fashion game forward from their clothes to their nails. Although one needs to remember that the pandemic is still lurking around, it shouldn’t stop anyone from taking care of them and looking good. So why leave out your nails? Priyancka Surana of Invogue Salon & Nail Bar tells The Telegraph what’s trending this season. Cool French mani to tie-and-dye, here are some popular nail trends one can flaunt this festive season.

1. Neon: Neon continues to rule the popularity chart this festive season too. From French tips in neon for people who can’t handle too much of the shades to going all out like Selena Gomez, neon will definitely let your hand stand out this Durga Puja too. If you are skipping the festivities for a vacay on the beach, neon nails in shades like pop pink, green, yellow are hot.
2. Abstract designs: According to me, the appeal is that you get to play around with so many colours and patterns. Don’t be shy to experiment with textures and lines and if you want to try them on a similar shade with different designs on each finger like Cardi B, then that’s possible too!
3. Embellished nails: For someone who loves wild and whacky, it’s always a good idea to experiment. Elle Fanning can be your example, after all who can forget the embellished nails she sported on the Met Gala red carpet in 2019?! Once you are done with the setting of your gel nails you can pierce them with different kinds of charms. The rings and stones even work really well on a clear base and these trinkets on the nails give a funky look, which works really well with both Indo-westerns as well as gorgeous ethnic outfits.
4. Solid gel nails: A trip to the nail salon doesn’t mean you always have to do something eye-popping. Remember simplicity can be classy too and solid gel nails in one bold shade can never go wrong. Take a cue from Kylie Jenner who opted for bold white nail paint as a shade for her talons. Simple and sophisticated.
Tie-and-dye: Why restrict current fave trend of tie-and-dye to your outfits only? This time you can work them on your nails too just like Dua Lipa’s fab nailart done by celeb nail artist Kim Truong. Aren’t these pastel tie-dye swirls trippy and oh-so-cool?!
Stickers: If you follow fashion closely you would be aware how Anya Taylor-Joy stole the thunder at Emmys this week with her outfit and nails! The Queen’s Gambit actress opted for solid shades matching her outfit but chose to paint some fingers yellow that were adorned with king, rook, bishop, queen, pawn stickers.
French tips: The renaissance of French tips is going to evolve and continue. If you love playing with your talon tips then skip the usual white for black like Kourtney Kardashian’s black tips or go funky with different colours on your each finger tip.
