Instagram’s Newest Nail Trend Is Literally A Work Of Art

by Khalea Underwood / Tuesday, 27 March 2018
Nail-art trends come and go, but nail art itself is always in style. Now, manicurists around the world are taking the term literally and turning it into a trend all its own, with the Pablo Picasso-inspired manicures we’ve been seeing all over Instagram.
Granted, manis modeled after fine art aren’t anything new: We’ve seen Monet lilies, Van Gogh stars, and even Keith Haring figures painted on fingertips in the past. But there’s something different about these Picasso-inspired sets. Maybe it’s the fact that they can be done with a free hand, or maybe it’s because they look good in any color combo imaginable — and it doesn’t hurt that, with their abstract nature, making mistakes is NBD.
Either way, we know what’ll be populating our saved tab for the next few weeks. So grab your palette polish and get some inspiration for your weekend nail look, ahead.

Elaine Welteroth’s Olive & June mani — not to mention her stunning engagement ring — is worth an entire exhibit on its own.

Polish nail artist Anastasiia did a similar iteration in black and white.

How’s that for an accent nail? Yukaco, a New York-based artist, broke up the monotony of this tan-and-brown set with some sketches.

An interesting twist on the trend: It appears that Japanese nail artist Dacci sketched out some of her graphics on paper before transferring them on.

UK-based manicurist Amy Rickaby used The GelBottle Inc.’s White Builder In A Bottle for this “perfect milky white base.”

Don’t worry about being so delicate with your brush strokes, either: This artist used a series of thicker lines for a bolder effect that we’re very into.

Have almond-shaped nails ever been this artistic?

Over in England, Honestly Ombré used a moody gray-and-blue palette and quoted Picasso in her caption: “Everything you can imagine is real.”

This nail artist used Essie’s Topless and Barefoot as a soft beige base.

It’s the best of both worlds: graphics and gemstones, by nail tech Jeanell Pankey in Philadelphia.
