The Biggest Nail Trend on Instagram Right Now

Not every nail trend that blows up on Instagram is worth trying IRL, (read: bubble manicures and aquarium nails) but the latest one to catch our eyes is definitely something to get behind. A crop of graphic manis embellished with thin stripes have begun popping up in our social feed on a daily basis. Shared by Instagram’s most in-demand nail artists and beauty accounts alike, variations of the trend include everything from metallic to monochrome stripes and all types of negative space nails. The end result: a minimal, graphic effect that looks cool without trying too hard. Here, the looks we’re loving, and a few key products to nail (pun intended) the trend yourself.
