We all love a great mani, but when living in NYC, it’s all about where someone can grab the best trending look that not only lasts through the city’s hustle and bustle, but also looks like it was stolen right off the runway. To solve the great mani mystery, we’ve rounded up some of the best nail salons in the city and all the amazing nail art trends to try. From a simple, yet chic ombre look to a full-blown geometric design, you may just have the most stylish nails for the summer.
The aesthetic of this place alone would make anyone want to walk through the doors. Like the name, this super chill spot located on Essex street is known for their trendy gel manicures. Since polka dots have been seen just about everywhere this year, why not try them on your nails? We can’t seem to get enough of this trend, especially when accented with cool, vibrant colors.
This hotspot is the place to be when you want all your nail ideas to really come to life. AKIKO Nails specifies in Japanese nail art and intricate custom designs. Since simple nude nails are having a moment, we love these intricate designs painted on top for a subtle, yet empowering statement.
Try out this spa spa spot with their own branded nail polish! This chic location is known for their longwear polish in all the trending colors. With geometric really taking center stage, why not opt for a few colors and craft your own asymmetrical print?
Oh My Nails!
She’s bright. She’s bold. She’s both with an eye-catching mani. Check out Oh My Nails, who not only service manis with diverse beautiful colors, but also create amazing designs you’ll want lasting all summer long. We loved when neon and stripes united for this super fun look perfect by the pool or at the beach.
Yukie Beauty Salon
Whether you desire a monarch butterfly drawn on your nails or 3D pearls to be placed on top of your new paint job, Yuki Beauty Salon does all of the above. Metallics are having a major moment right now, and this metallic ombre on the tip of the nails is one of the most refreshing variations for the season.
Who said your nail polish can’t be vegan? At Tenoverten, you now have the option for a beautiful color and vegan tips. We would opt for the ombre trend at this super chic salon, as they have a wide array of shades, perfect for any type, one may desire.
Finally there’s a salon in NYC that’s Queen Bey approved! Beyonce herself has had her nails done at Paintbox, it’s no wonder why. This trend-driven spot is not only insta-worthy, but they have their own branded nail polish and unique nail styles done at the salon. We would opt blending neutrals with neon accents as it gives a chic, yet sporty vibe, which fashionistas will be loving all the way into fall.
Simplistic and modern go a pretty long way these days in the trend department. Spend a relaxing Sunday with Sunday Studio and opt for a minimalistic mani that will spice up any summer-season outfit. Now that white nail polish is in style (and makes you look more tan) we loved that it shined in this look with only one accented nail. How chic!
