Remember the people who came up with the bracelet nails last year? Unistella nail salon sets the nail trend again this year with their latest innovation, wire nails.
Founder of Unistella, Park Eun Kyung, impressed us once again with her wire nail art masterpiece. Tiny pieces of wire are sculpted into the desired designs and placed on the nails. If you prefer it, you can also choose minimalist designs with the wires placed as the nail outline, or just on the edges or your cuticles. Our favourite? The Picasso-inspired human faces!
According to Marie Claire, Park Eun Kyung said that her designs were inspired by neon signs. "When you make neon signs, you have to bend the wires to make certain lettering," she mentioned. "It's one long wire that's bent to create and connect the letters. I thought this was really cool and since nails are an accessory, I wanted it to be used for expression. Like rings."
If you are looking to have this nail art done, make sure that your nail artists are mindful of the sharp ends of the wire and sculpt them into a smooth finish. As much as we want to have beautiful nails, it is important not to let the sharp wires get caught in your clothes or injure you.
