Smiley face nails are 2022’s newest up-and-coming trend! If you’re looking to achieve your own smiley face nails, we rounded up the best nail designs for you.

Harry Styles, Gigi Hadid, and Dua Lipa have all called it – smiley face nails are potentially this year’s biggest nail trend. Celebrities left and right have been seen sporting the cheerful look on their nails, and Harry Styles has sent the entire smiley face nail craze into overdrive ever since he was spotted rocking this unique nail design.

According to Pinterest’s 2021 Trend Report, smiley face nails have spiked at least 9x in searches over the year, as part of the “indie beauty” category. Gen Z, also known as Zoomers, have been found to be the number one demographic on the internet that have contributed to the spike in the indie aesthetic. Smiley face nails are perfect for your indie and y2k outfits!

Along with the rise of unique nail designs over the past year, another trend that gained traction over the course of the lockdown is press-on nails. Now, we are huge fans of press-on nails, primarily because they’re super easy to apply, and they come in affordable sets that you can use an infinite number of times! Talk about economic AND environmentally sustainable! 

To rock your own smiley face nails, Etsy has a wide selection of press-on nails from independent creators that you can order anytime. But if you’d rather go in for a much-needed manicure, no worries! You can just save your favorite design from this post to your phone, and show it to your nearest nail tech!
