September 2011 saw the opening of an exhibition like no other at DegreeArt.com's Execution Rooms in London. Nailphilia was London's first nail art exhibition; exploring the art of nail design though film, print, photography, models, sculptures and digital art.

Here at the Good Spa Guide, we predict nails will be HUGE in 2012.

Just as 2011 saw the unveiling of the World's Most Expensive Blow Dry, we think that 2012 will also see a rise in high-end nail treatments, too, with the rolling out of more exciting, exotic and unusual nail designs.

This isn't just a spa thing; 2011 saw magnetic varnish, adhesive films and cracked nails trending. That's why we think 2012 is going to bring us more gorgeous and different nail designs.
