3D Nail Art Is Here To Next-Level Your Mani. Here’s All The Inspo You Need…

We’ve spotted a new nail art trend emerging that’s quite literally raising the bar – or the height, at least – of your mani. Sounds odd? Bear with…

As with many of our fave weird and wonderful beauty upgrades, the trend for 3D manis started off in Korea before making its way around the globe and onto the fingertips of some of our favourite celebs.

The nail art sees 3D accents like squiggles, flowers, water droplets and even gummy bears and tiny cartoon characters added to nails for a little extra swag.

South Korean nail pro, Park Eunkyung, better known as @nail_unistella has been creating cool and interesting dimensional designs for years, including for some of her famous KPop clients like Blackpink’s Lisa and Jennie.

Want in? Below are some of our favourite 3D nail art designs…
