The 'Virgin' Manicure
Although the exact meaning behind the name remains unclear, you can expect to see the 'Virgin Manicure' pop up a lot more in 2020. Named by Kiev-based salon MVK, the look is characterised by a base of clear or nude-coloured nails featuring very fine, graphic line art, as seen here via MVK nail artist, Yulia Stetsiuk.

Coined and created by nail artist Jessica Washick, seaglass nails are the new season answer to last year's jelly nails. Although inspired by their predecessor, seaglass nails feature a more opaque colour and finish, thanks to a matte top coat.
The Clean Manicure
A healthier and more eco-friendly alternative to the traditional shellac or polish, the 'Clean Manicure' is poised to be one of the biggest beauty trends of 2020. Free from the harsh ingredients typically present in conventional manicures, this polish-free procedure uses natural formulas, including a strengthening keratin treatment, to give the nails a refined, glassy finish.
