What does NOTD stand for?

Nail of the day

When you notice ‘NOTD’ in an online post or comment, it’s all about nail fashion. This acronym is short for ‘Nail of the Day’ and it’s used when someone wants to show off their current nail polish or design. It’s often used on social media platforms and fashion forums.

Imagine you’re scrolling through Instagram and come across a post from a popular nail artist. They’ve uploaded a photo of their latest work, with a caption like, “This NOTD is just right for the upcoming party season!“. In this case, the artist is using NOTD to highlight their nail art of the day.

Another example could be a soon-to-be-married woman looking for wedding nail inspiration. She might post in a forum, “I’m head over heels for this NOTD. Anyone know where I can get this in the Los Angeles area?“. Here, NOTD is used to refer to a nail design she’s seen and loved.

NOTD is just one of many fashion and beauty acronyms you might come across online. Some others you might see include OOTD (Outfit of the Day), SOTD (Shoe of the Day), CAS (Casual), LBD (Little Black Dress), fit (outfit), and drip (style).
