Mermaid Seashell Nails Is Trending Right Now


It’s summer and time to hit the beach! You may already know how to get that body summer ready, but are your nails ready? Apart from soaking myself in the sun and the cooling waters, my absolute favorite is strolling on the beach picking up beautiful seashells among the sand. Don’t you just love feeling the wind in your hair and kicking the sand while scavenging for something beautiful?


No time for the beach? 

If it is difficult for you to take time off your busy schedule to hit the beach, why not put it on your nails? What if I told you you can have seashells right at your fingertips without going to the beach and search for hours to find one? Following the unicorn craze, here comes the mermaid craze! The internet is flooded with the latest nail art trend – 3D mermaid seashell nail art!

Similar to the popular 3D knit nail art, the mermaid seashell nail art is constructed the same way by building up layers of gel to create a three dimensional pattern, resembling the ribs of a seashell! Many famous nail artists in Japan has created different versions of the nail garnering much attention from many audiences on Instagram! I’m totally captivated just by looking at the different variations of the design!
