These 5 Nail Polish Colors Will Be Trending in 2022
December 28, 2021
In 2021, we spent a lot of time looking at our hands, catching glimpses of our nails each time we took part in yet another hand-washing sesh or spent hours catching up on viral TikTok videos. And while we’ll definitely be taking these rituals into 2022, we’re excited to switch things up and take a few new nail polish colors out for a test drive. Ahead, find the polish colors we think will be the trendiest shades of 2022.

You’ve grown so much this year – let your nails catch up by painting them with a sheer strengthening nail polish. Our favorite is the Essie Hard to Resist Nail Strengthener Treatment, a clear polish with a slight purple tint, which helps neutralize yellow and strengthen brittle nails.
2 / 5
An electric pink polish like Essie Pucker Up paired with fun pops of color in equally bold shades (think: orange, green and purple) is guaranteed to elevate your mood every time you type away on your computer.
3 / 5
With a chameleon-like finish that reflects differently in the light, it’s impossible to get bored of an iridescent mani. We’re obsessed with JinSoon Epidote for 2022, a fresh, metallic green nail polish shade that ushers in ideas of harmony and abundance — which is exactly what we’re manifesting this year.

Pretty in Periwinkle
Pantone’s Color of the Year, Very Peri, a blue-toned purple, is going to be everywhere in 2022. Snag Àuda.B Blooming Lilac and paint it on your fingers and toes on repeat.

Earthy and Easy
Swap out your usual neutral polish for Paintbox Like Canyon Nail Lacquer, a warm tan color that is reminiscent of a comfy, inviting leather couch. It’s rusty, super pigmented and looks luxurious next to both warm and cool undertones.
