Generally spring/summer is when we put away our thermals, but they’re going strong when it comes to nails, with more than 17,000 #thermalnails hashtags on Instagram. The look is part lava lamp, part weather heat map, for a quirky, different-every time look.
“Thermal nails are created by layering colours, then filing them away to expose the different colours underneath, such as pastel and neon shades,” says Kathy Holroyd, Salon System’s marketing director.
Everyone has that one client who *always* goes for the same shade (or at least a variation on a theme) but they might surprise you this year, dipping a toe into more dramatic designs.
“We’re flooded with nail inspiration every day on social media and after two years of uncertainty, I think everyone will look forward to their next nail appointment as they get to finally express themselves through their nails again, with a different design each time,” says CND education ambassador Victoria Trafford.
