Wire Nail Trend: Yay or Nay?

When Eun Kyung Park, the founder of the Unistella salon in Seoul, starts a new trend, we absolutely have to follow it. Afterall, she is goals when it comes to nail art!

Last year, she came up with a design that baffled many people on first glance: She stuck thin gold wire onto her customer’s nails in various styles – from simple cuticle accents to intricate designs.

Like rings.” Eun manipulates the coils using tweezers and places the shaped wire on the nails painted with clear gel polish before letting it all settle in place under a UV light and adding a top coat.

Here are some designs you can bring to your next manicure appointment:

Embrace the abstract side of you with these funky-looking nails! They will definitely be a conversation starter – on top of people asking “is that wire on your nails?”, they’ll also be trying to guess what the faces mean… if they even do 😉

Or look to your inner romantic for inspiration as well. I really like the whimsicality of this design and how simple it is. Plus, the pink wire on a white base colour really stands out! (OK, and I like pink)

Go big with a combination of various nail art here. While this may be overwhelming on first glance, you soon realise that everything actually goes very well together. Especially loving the 3D nail art on the ring finger!

Instead of going down the thin wire route, how about opting for a thick wire instead? This shade of green is perfect for the *cough* snake *cough* in your life – even the wire says so!

Overall, this look can be quite alluring – just make sure not to catch the wire on your clothes!
