1. Verdant Spring

If you are looking for an inspirational spring palette, look no further than Kinetics and its Reverie collection for Spring 2023.

2. Paint Perfection 

Fedua founder Luca Gonzini knows a thing or two about paint. In fact, it is in his blood. After growing up as part of his family paint business, Colorificio Gonzini in Bottacino, Gonzini decided to pave his own way and start nail brand Fedua after an inspirational trip through the colors of Morocco. Though the brand started with Gel Effect nail polish, it now offers Gummy Semi-Builder Pro, Acrygel Builder Pro, Gel Polish and a range of skin care that showcase the colors and ingredients of Morocco. fedua.com

3. Nail Art Know-how

Decorative nails have met their match with Italian beauty brand Clarissa. Though over the years, the company has expanded to offer eyelash, makeup, microblading, hair dye and fragrance products, it is well known around the world for its gel, acrylic and decorative nail products. When it comes to nail art, there is not much you can’t find at Clarissa, be it stamping plates, stamping gels, foils, pearls, gems, glitter, tools, finger rests, glues, organizers and much more. Notably, the brand also has innovated a nail and hand fragrance, Nail Mist, that comes in six scents such as Magnolia and Neroli & Rose. clarissacosmetics.com

4. Nail Plate Repair

So much focus often goes on nail color and art that nail care and health often goes by the wayside. That is not the case for Italian nail manufacturer Nailover B.E.B. Cosmetici with its newest launch, Unica Repair. Formulated as a treatment for weak and damaged nails, Unica Repair can be used on all nail types as a heat-protective adhesion accelerator and is able, already from the first application, to improve the overall nail structure. Unica Repair is able to reconstruct damaged nail fibres. As a result of tests, already by the third application of Unica Repair, the damaged nail plate is stronger, healthier and the burning sensation during polymerization of gels, hybrid gels or semi-permanent nails almost completely disappears. bebcosmetici.it

5. Evolved Acrylic

When it comes to acrylic, innovation is hard to come by but very much needed. Spanish nail company Thuya took its 30 years in the business to reinvent acrylic and solve many of the professional’s needs. Its Acrylic Premium dries in three phases to facilitate the construction process. Due to its rubbery state, it is more flexible for easy molding while maintaining moisture. It is manufactured in micro grains to facilitate the fusion between the powder and the sculpting liquid. The company now offers Acrylic Premium in Milky to satiate the “bath milk” trend and Peach Cover to reconstruct bitten nails, do an inverted French manicure and monocolor, in addition to its other 9 shades. thuya.com

6. Worldwide Distribution

Cornering the European market on professional beauty products is Worldwide Beauty Distribution Group (WBBD), which began as Beauty Company in the Netherlands in 1993 as one of the first professional wholesalers of hand, nail and foot products in Europe. In addition to Beauty Company, the group now comprises three other companies—Beauty Factory, Duvado Beauty Systems and Provecho Beauty—with profesisonal brands BO.SYSTEMS, BO.Nail, BO.Lash, I.Am Professional Nail Systems, Holla Nail Cosmetica and IBP, as well as private label manufacturing brand Your Logo under its belt. In addition, it distributes brands from American International Industries in Europe to offer a combined portfolio that is hard to match. wwbdgroup.com

7. Nail Health

Health was a major goal of Elmien Scholtz when she founded Bio Sculpture in South Africa in 1988, not only for the environment but also for the nails. Scholtz sought to start a nail company that brought beauty to the nails but also maintained the nail matrix and was responsible to the environment. Over 30 years later, she has done just that, expanding her reach to 40 countries worldwide. Although it started with the world’s first soak-off gel system in a jar, Biogel, the company now designs, develops, manufactures and markets a complete range of professional nail, body and beauty care products including Evo, Ethos, Gemini and Bio-Olygel. The lines always take the nail health into account, often formulated with ingredients to moisturize and strengthen the nails. The company also manufactures its products with self-supportive water storage, natural lighting and regulated ventilation systems. biosculpture.com

8. Toasty Shades

When Zoya and Michael Reyzis started Art of Beauty in 1986, nail technician Zoya tasked her chemist husband to create a fast-drying topcoat and long-wearing natural nail polish. He did just that, changing the nail industry, the pair went on to expand Art of Beauty to include brands Zoya, Qtica, Smart Spa, Zoom and Naked Manicure. Nail lacquer brand Zoya recently debuted its Toasty collection, comprising six wearable shades that were designed to be every day shades that transition the client from winter to spring shades. artofbeauty.com

9. Extensions Elevated

Aprés Nail revolutionized the nail industry with the 2015 introduction of Gel-X, Their full coverage, soft-gel nail extension system allows nail professionals to provide both length and durability, all in a soak-off extension. Unlike traditional acrylic or hard gel, Gel-X offers a fast and versatile extension service that provides unparalleled lightness and flexibility for the wearer.

10. Fado Tribute

Known for its originality, color diversity and innovation, Portuguese brand INOCOS recently paid hommage to its home country with its new collection, Ah! Fadista. This collection of six nail lacquers, three lip glosses and two nail glitters pays tribute to the Portuguese music tradition of “fado,” a type of melancholic music sung based on the realities of life.
