The Biggest Trending Nail Colors for 2023 – 2024

The nail color trends for 2023-2024 are not only approachable, but philosophically genius. Innovative sheer jelly polish and jewelry-like chrome trends treat your nails like an actual extension of your outfit, harmoniously adding unique texture and shine to your ensemble. The rise of popularity in nudes and neutral colors speak straight to the still-fervent obsession with Quiet Luxury (that means intentionally wearable and expensive-looking), giving credence to nail polish being a sensible extension of your wardrobe.

Read on to discover the best nail color trends for 2024, and how to wear them as an extension of your outfits. Looking to rediscover your style for the new year? Check out Personal Stylist Los Angeles Meg Gallagher‘s Styling Services here.

A Pro-Tip from Stylist Meg Gallagher…

Just like with clothes, we all have nail colors that look great on our skin, or can be harder to pull off. Understanding your color palette helps directionally to make choices that are the most flattering for you! That’s why Meg recommends utilizing Color Guru, a service that analyzes your unique colors and provides you with an entire guide to your most flattering palette; which can be utilized for building your perfect wardrobe, coloring your hair, finding the correct shades of makeup and even inform your nail color decisions.

Pulling off Colors that Are “Hard-to-Wear”

Opting to wear a color farther off the nail at the tip, or choosing a sheer version of the nail color is a great way to test the waters with a color you aren’t used to or is outside of your color palette.

“Rothko Red”: Black Cherry, Berries & Bordeaux 

Popular “Rothko” deep, black cherry red is coined from Rothko’s famous “Light Red Over Black” painting of 1957. It’s both a revamped red, and another sophisticated way to pull off the black nail trend. We love this nail trend paired with oxblood, chocolate or black leather jackets. 

If Rothko’s Cherry Red-black is too “vampire”, Plummy reds are abundant for winter to still get that deeper hue without too much of the edge. These wine tones read as cozy and quiet luxury, working well as a go-to nail color all season long.
