Autumn is once again (somehow) upon us. Whilst this summer felt like it whizzed past even quicker than usual due to Covid-19, lockdown and a total lack of that holiday feeling, in true autumn fashion, it's time to start getting the blankets and cozy jumpers out and watching Gilmore Girls re-runs with a pumpkin spice latte in hand.
The time for summer might have gone, but the season of comfort is officially here. And boy do we need it. In times of uncertainty and despair (as 2020 has unfortunately offered an armful of) we often seek comfort in the familiar and this need for nostalgia even extends to our manicures. The newest nail art trend on the Instagram block is inspired by the wavy 1960s, with everything from bright geometric shapes to vibrant tie dye swirls in psychedelic hues. Luckily for us there's more than a few totally groovy nail art designs we can get on board with to cheer up these gloomy months.
It's time to swap the brooding burgundy varnish for a manicure that's a little more 60s this autumn. Read on for the best 60s nail art designs inspiring your new seriously hip finger tips...

The 1960s-Themed Nail Trend We're Most Excited To See in 2021
When choosing our nail color for any given month or occasion, we don’t tend to think about what was trendy back when the Beatles first started touring—but this coming year, we just might start. One of the most popular nail art trends that’s been heating up for the last half of the year has us dreaming of go-go boots, bright-colored frocks, and Twiggy lashes. Mod fashion is back, gals, but this time, everyone’s wearing it on their fingers.
Mod fashion has been appearing in different nail art designs and colors for months now and can be hard to spot, but one thing to look out for is pattern. We’re talking swirling colors, checkered prints, and retro polka dots that seem reminiscent of the memorable mini frocks and tea-length dresses of the mid- to late-1960s. This makes it extra easy to customize the nail fad to fit your style.
The trend seems to only be picking up more steam as we head into 2021, and after a year full of less-than-inspiring outfits (looking at you, yoga pants), the over-the-top designs feel like just the thing to revamp our whole outlook. The best part? They aren’t too hard to achieve by simply bringing a picture to the salon or trying on your own at home.
The most popular form of mod nails popping up everywhere is the characteristic swirls (the ones that would stick with us into the groovy 1970s) that make use of clear negative space to make wavy shapes using color. You can basically choose your favorite nail shades and tell the nail technician to go crazy. From there, checkered print and artfully placed polka dots are easy enough to master.
So next time you’re reaching for your basic nude or pale pink, consider going back in time and picking a manicure that’s way more fun than practical. You can even use your trusty neutral to create the shapes and designs, if that's calling your name.
Now is not a time to sit back and choose your usual. Step outside your comfort zone with one of these foxy mod manis.
