It’s been approximately 30 seconds since the last Instagram nail art trend (pom pom nails, glass nails) and the internet has heard our cries. Aquarium nails are the latest mesmerizing way to decorate your digits, and honestly, they take some work. But nothing that looks this good comes easy, so we say it’s worth it.
Here’s what the mermaid-inspired manicure involves. First, you should probably go to a salon and not try to DIY this. A manicurist will inject baby oil and glitter between two acrylic nails to “set” them. Then they’ll add rhinestones and more glitter to the top layer for a multi-dimensional look. The end result? Glitter and oil that move around when you move your hands (like a snow globe!). You can watch the entire complex process here.
Peep the vids below for some of our favourite examples of the seriously cool aquarium nails trend.
