May 30 is National Nail Tech Day, followed by June 1st, which is National Nail Polish Day. Let the painting begin!
To celebrate both, OPI is offering a complimentary class on Wednesday, June 2nd 3PM - 4PM CT, with their partner CosmoProf to talk through some of the season's trending nail looks.
OPI Wellness Wednesday: Insta Ready Nails is a complimentary class hosted by Samantha Silvius @SamanthaNailedIt. This look-and-learn class will help every beauty pro brush up on their nail art skills.
Before you can get painting, it helps to know what clients may be requesting. Wondering what is going to be trending this summer? OPI Educator Silvius and OPI Education Manager Sigourney Nunez @NailArtbySig say we'll be seeing plenty of bright summery shades and designs that incorporate simple use of dots, swirls, and negative space.

"On the pro-side, I see a lot of artists using gel in unique ways to create texture or depth," says Silvius. "Creating shadows and outlines takes a lot of expertise and practice. Layering of colors and patterns is really driving that 'dynamic pairing' trend."
