nail art

Nail art is something that just lures people in! No matter who you are, the eye-catching colors, patterns, designs, and even shapes. Maybe it is because nail art is something that everyone can participate in, or its just human instinct to be drawn to stuff that looks cute on Instagram. Whatever the reason, nail art trends have taken over our Instagram feeds – milky nails, drip nails, or even tortoiseshell nails.

In 2019, we saw trends like Korean stone nail art, diamond nails, tattoo nails, and many more. Some of them will surely flourish in 2020 as well. In the new year, along with the trends from 2019, we expect minimalism and maximalism to go together!

Aurora Nail Art

Magnetic nail art inspired by Aurora borealis, more popularly known as Nothern Lights, is taking over nails in South Korea. Aurora nails have a fantastic kaleidoscopic effect – it is shimmery and changes colors with the movement of hands. The Aurora nail trend is essentially Korea’s take on the cat-eye manicure.

Not only is the appearance like mythical Northern Lights, but they also involve magnetic forces. The metallic gel polishes actually contain magnetic particles. It helps in the proper distribution of the shimmer with a magnetic wand.

See how the color changes

🔮 Looking at the aurora through my nails 🙃 . 손이 못생겼지만 no filter, no effect ✔️ . Thanks a bunch, my uni-fam. I’m happy to see y’all making this even more special. . 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 With magnetic🧲gel and a magnet🧲, you can easily do it. . The trick is to make a design with your magnet after applying the gel right before you start curing. ☝🏻The index finger was done by applying a coat of magnetic gel on clear base, ✋🏻and the rest of the fingers had deep blue color underneath, so if you look into it they are a bit different. . There’s no right answer, so try it with different base colors and designs. Then you’ll get your own beautiful aurora on your hands 🔮😌 . . . *검지는 투명베이스, 나머지는 딥블루 컬러 베이스를 깔고 완성 했어요💜 가지고 계시는 자석젤이 옛날거라 잘 안 될땐 자석 파우더와 섞어도 괜찮은데 요즘 새로나온 자석젤은 다 잘 나오는 것 같아요. 🥰 #옥구슬네일 #unistella

Cracked Nail Patterns like Snakeskin

Why should you only have snakeskin-inspired handbags? Nail art with cracked nail patters like snakeskin is about to blow up your Insta feeds, according to Park. Although they might look too complicated to replicate at home, with a little practice, you can easily make your own snakeskin nail pattern!

Unique Nail Shapes

A nail art trend that is not about the design but the shape of the nail. Unusual shapes like ‘lipstick’ shape are one of the inventions of Eun Kyung Park. In this trend, slightly slanted tips are typically filed onto the tips of extra-long nails. Unique and inventive nail shapes do come with risks. Instead of regular curves or flat, go out with something different and unique!

Negative Space Nail Art Trend

Although French manicure was the most significant trend of 2019, it will continue in 2020 with a slight twist. In this trend, nails have a transparent background with some abstract pattern on the top. It gives a clean and futuristic feel to the nail art.

And it even works well with short nails

Milky Way Nail Art Trend

It is like a point between an opaque white manicure and a sheer white manicure. The color is brighter at the nail tips, and it fades out to opaque white. It looks like a milky texture, which is how it gets the name from. There are many different interpretations of this trend that you will definitely come across when you browse.
