In With the WIRE, Out with the Polish!
Are wires changing the whole nail game?
If we’re being honest, most of the latest nail trends have been a little out there with styles like pom-pom nails, furry nails, and even bubble nails. Wire nails are not only fierce and weird, but super realistic too and we’re living for it.
Who came up with this wild idea? Intricate nail designer Eun Kyung Park, the founder of Unistella salon in Seoul, South Korea. Park has worked with clients like Vogue, Elle and Allure to give their models the most intricate nail designs. She’s also the one who is responsible for the shattered glass nail design.
Park’s wire nail designs can be simple and cute with just one wire framing your cuticle, or can feature modern, curvy designs all over. She manipulates thin wire into 3D works of art to liven up the boring, old, and plain manicure. Better than the designs is Park’s inspiration for the wire nails: NEON SIGNS. Just like how neon signs are one long wire twisted into letters, a wire can be used to do the same as a nail accessory.
You can DIY at home too with some thin wire and tweezers, but be careful, this trend is super edgy, literally.
