The Cool New Korean Nail Trend That Will Never Chip

Amy Lawrenson

It was a good few years ago that nail art had a renaissance. Since its peak, our obsession with all things nails has become more low-key. Sure, we all love a great nude or red manicure, but on the whole, our yearning for the out-there nail designs has taken a backseat. In its place, we've been obsessing over matte lips, mostly.

But there's a new nail trend starting to take over Instagram—wirework nail art. The trend was masterminded by Eun Kyung Park, founder of Seoul's Unistella salon (she's the same woman who bought us glass and bracelet nails). The great thing about this new trend is that it's seriously chic and totally wearable. What's even more exciting is that you can totally DIY it, so no need to take a long-haul trip east.

Keep scrolling to find out more about this new nail trend and how you can take your manicure to the next level at home.

You can play about by adorning your wirework with gold studs and flat-backed shapes too. Park's advice if you do want to DIY your own wirework nails? "Keep in mind that since it's a wire, you have to make sure the sharp end has a nice finish so it doesn't get caught in clothes," she says.
