This Is the #1 Nail Trend on Pinterest Right Now
Welcome to Byrdie UK's Brit Month, a monthlong celebration of all things eccentrically and wonderfully British. From the little-known, homegrown beauty brands we're championing to the beauty trends that we Brits will be everywhere in 2017, this is the place to dive into all things quintessentially and brilliantly British.
Nail art designs kind of dropped off our radar for a bit. With the increase in natural-looking makeup on and off the catwalk (see Kim Kardashian West's more pared-back glam), it seemed obvious that bright polishes and new nail art ideas would have taken a bit of a hit too. But thanks to the bolder looks for spring we witnessed on the catwalks, statement nails are back. And where better to find out the biggest trends than Pinterest?
According to the site, these are five biggest nail art trends in Britain right now, and some were definitely not what we expected. From speckled-egg style nails (note: Imagine your nails Cadbury's Mini Egg–style) to a wire-rimmed mani that's as crazy as it is cool, we've got the biggest looks you're going to love for the new season. Keep scrolling for the five nail art designs you'll want to try right now.
Chrome nails aren't new, and we all know that. But over the past year, Pinterest has seen an increase of this trend by 570%, making it the fastest-growing nail art look on the site.

Thanks to Easter being just around the corner (plus everyone's love for Cadbury's Mini Eggs), there's now a growing trend for this style of nail art, with Pinterest reporting a 500% increase in searches for this look since the beginning of this year.

If you're a lover of the matte nail trend, then happy days. It's just seen a 57% increase in popularity on Pinterest over the past year. Not only are there plenty of polishes on the market, which means it's super easy to get this look, but you can also invest in a topcoat that will make any of your favourite colours matte.

Another big trend in the nail art world right now? Marble. Because decking our houses and encasing our iPhones in marble is just not enough. With a 54% increase in popularity over the past year on Pinterest, it's clearly a winner. Try your, erm, hand at it with this tutorial on YouTube.
We've already talked about this wire nail art trend and how it's taking off everywhere. Pinterest proves it too, with a 45% increase in pins for this look over the past year. Not only will wire nail art not chip (amazing), but it also looks pretty cool.
