Here’s the new impractical nail trend that we LOVE

Say goodbye to marble and snowglobe (what was THAT) wire nails have arrived.

Kim Kardashian recently gave us all a touch of nail nostalgia when she pierced hers. Good or bad? we’re undecided.

The 90’s were rough.

Well, a new nail trend has appeared on Instagram and as bizarre as ‘wire’ nails sound, they look incredibly pared back and beautiful to us.

It’s definitely a different look than the recent “let’s put everything including the neighbour’s dog on our nails” trend, but is it attainable? We’re not so sure.

The Instagram user @nail_unistella seems to be the trailblazer for ‘wire work’ and from what we can tell she’s either part unicorn or a full blown nail wizard.

It could be a while before this trend reaches our shores, but I’m heading to Woodies to stock up on wire… just in case.

See… magic.
