Exciting Nail Trends For 2021 at Martin and Phelps Beauty Salon in Cheltenham

After forgoing in-salon manicure and pedicure appointments for a long time and dealing with home manicures and bare nails, it’s fair to say that as far as 2021 is concerned, bright manicures are back with a bang!

Many clients have been visiting Martin and Phelps Beauty Salon in Cheltenham eager to see what our nail technicians have been cooking up during lockdown. Spoiler alert: It’s very exciting!

Areas We Cover





Colourful French Manicure

Give your classic french manicure a modern update for 2021 with a fabulous colourful french twist! Choose neon bright colours, pastels and even use different colours for each nail. Your colourful french manicure tips can be as minimal or as bold as you like, have fun with this style!

Tie Dye Nails

Choose a groovy manicure style this year with a tie dye effect. This psychedelic style is perfect for the summer and can be customised with any colour you choose, from pastels to super funky neon colours. 

Pastel Gradient Nails

Gradient manicures are a popular trend and have been used with a wide range of palettes and can be used to create a stunning ombre effect. This year the focus is on pastel gradient nails and beautiful ombre pink nail colours. Ask your Martin and Phelps beauty expert about which nail colours will work well together to create this lovely effect.

Tortoise Shell Nails

Whilst a popular autumnal nail design, tortoise shell manicures are set to continue their popularity throughout the summer. The beauty of this nail polish trend is that the design is entirely unique – plus you can match the colour to your sunglasses! Experiment with your tortoise shell manicure, add the effect into a french manicure, use as an accent nail or try a fun half and half design with nude or neon colours complimenting tortoise shell equally.

Bright Pedicures

Don’t neglect your toes this summer – it’s nearly sandals weather and your pedicure should be fresh and fun! The trend this year is for super bright toenails, ranging from neon colours to stunning glitter effects and nail art.
