As we rocket through the beginning of 2018, nail trends in nail art are predicted to be anything goes…as long as it goes well. The key to sporting a winning nail design and not a nail design flop is having it done professionally in the best nail salon Cape Coral-Fort Myers area can offer (hint- hint ☺).

Whether you are looking for a special occasion manicure and pedicure or even an all-out spa day, you can count on our nail artists at our nail salon Fort Myers to create a nail design to match any nail trends out there.

So, what are the professionals seeing the nail trends for Spring 2018 to be? Here are some to think about on your way to your next manicure.

Expected Nail Trends for Spring 2018 – Color

When you come into your nail salon in Cape Coral/Fort Myers, match your color with your mood, or just your outfit. Not sure where to start? Here are some suggestions.

Go bold in the earlier months by trying a rich merlot or a rusty orange for a warm, confident look. If you’re more daring, try a cool navy or royal blue palette. And, of course, for the truly dramatic, nothing says drama like black.

Need a more subdued look for the office? Neutrals and lighter shades never go out of style. Choose a beige or rosy pink option for a fresh, clean looking appearance.

Show off a bit of flash with metallic finishes. Use individually or mix and match for extra pizazz. Note– we have been seeing a demand in metallic and color tip French manicures for those looking to keep it classy

Can’t decide which color to use at our nail salon Fort Myers? Don’t! Just use them all. Paint each nail a different color, or create a pattern with 2-4 colors.

You can rock these colors in shiny or matte finishes (well, ok, except the metallics), either way, your nails will look fabulous.

Go For a (Be) Dazzled Look

For those who have to add their own sparkle to everything, and you know who you are, go ahead and go crazy. With prom and other outdoor social festivities just around the corner, those sparkly gemstones you have all over your favorite bag, jeans and shoes can now go on your nails when you come into our nail salon Fort Myers.

Glitter All Night Long

Taking its cue from a homemade Christmas card, glitter nail polish has been around for a while, but with the newer sophisticated options and colors available at our nail salon Fort Myers, it is no longer relegated to the under 10 set to use on their Barbie dolls. Bold shades and multi-hued options will get you’re the attention you want, all night long.

Expressionism Through Abstract

Now you can channel your inner Piet Mondrian or Jackson Pollock at our nail salon Fort Myers. Use your favorite colors to have well-placed squiggles, lines, and geometric shapes turn your nails into a modern art gallery. These designs will look fabulous in both primary and secondary color palettes.

Keeping it Simple

Instead of going all or nothing, try a minimalist look instead. With monochromatic color palettes (2 or more colors in the same color family, i.e., light, medium and dark pink) and some nail tape, you can create a subtle design that still holds a fantastic wow-factor.

Go matte for another subtle option that can combine tone-on-tone color and texture as well. To achieve a truly unique look, try applying shiny elements over a matte base to add more depth to your design.

Remember the metallics we mentioned above? Make them pop by using them over a matte background.

Pop Art It!

Let your nails become a sticker parade of polish at our nail salon Fort Myers. From emojis and lightning bolts to camouflage in colors that scream to be seen, you can push your nail designs as far as you want to go to make a statement.

Take A Cue from Your Favorite Vacation Spot

Whether you choose turquoise and earth tones from the Southwest to create an entire desert (or Native American rug) on your hands or take your nails scuba diving in the bright tropical colors of the Florida Keys, you’ll definitely get some attention.

Just dig out those selfies you took on your last vacation to get inspiration for your next manicure.

Initiate a Peaceful (Nail) Demonstration Starting at Our Nail Salon Fort Myers

Do you want to Save the Whales? Have a favorite in the next election? What to encourage people to recycle? Let everyone know where you stand in your beliefs by making a statement through your nail art.

Why Just Stay Inside the Lines?

Instead of only using your nails as your canvas, why not continue further? Combine glitter with bold color by applying glitter to your fingers then painting your nails a solid color.

Or, use polish, or peel and stick tattoos or stickers to extend your design all the way down your fingers. The look may not last forever, but for the night you’ll be the talk of the town.

Let it Grow

You know how your gel polish starts to look a week or more after your manicure? Perfect on the polished areas but with a bare spot right at the cuticle? Now, you can wait even longer between appointments at your nail salon Fort Myers and rock the “grown out” look of color and naked nail.

Just add clear polish if you want to keep up the shine. Don’t have the patience to wait that long? This one can be done on purpose simply by not applying the color all the way to the cuticle line.


Ombre has gotten very popular the last few years and it still is! Pick three colors that are similar to create the subtle shading of the popular Ombre look.
