Minimalist Korean Nails vs Intricate Japanese Nails

Minimalist Korean Nails

The Korean nail art style looks stylish and gives a low-key but interesting touch suitable for any outfit. Where less is more, this type of style consists of a nude or clear base with some abstract or understated shapes on top. Some of the designs remind us of spiritual signs, and they are also super quick and easy to achieve.



Famous manicurist and founder of Unistella Salon, Eun Kyung Park is a celebrity nail artist in Korea. She has always been leading the Korean nail art trend which also brought great inspirations to many nail artists around the world. Some of her famous works include the Bracelet Nails and the shiny, eye-catching Diamond Nails.
