This year, there was nothing cooler than a metallic manicure. Whether you opted for copper, gold or silver, metal-toned nails took over the spotlight in a major way. Metallic nail polish also made an entrance in rose gold and chrome shades, proving that various takes on the gleaming, futuristic mani were the way to go.

Dip powder nails were one of the biggest innovations of the year, making a splash with their supposedly long-lasting finish and usage of pigmented powder. To achieve the look, nail lovers would literally dip (hence the name) their fingers into a jar of powder. Far from being plain, dip powder nail colours involved everything from sparkly silver to pastel pink.

Metallics may have enjoyed a moment in 2017, but holographics were also a leading manicure look of the year. With their eye-catching, glimmering tones and sleek texture, hologram nails could be spotted just about everywhere. Long talons were painted with holographic polish, while acrylic nails allowed beauty lovers to master the look without growing out their natural nails.
