Bracelet Nails Are the Latest Korean Beauty Trend to Take Over Instagram

Just when you thought you were getting used to shattered glass nails, Eun Kyung Park, founder of Unistella salon in Seoul, is back at it again with the latest nail trend: bracelet nails.

WTF are #braceletnails, you ask? They’re like friendship bracelets for your nails, only 100x cooler.

Be warned: Park’s intricate designs are not for the fidgety—using string, rhinestones and real metal charms (yes, real!), Park’s design can take up to 2 hours to complete as she uses tweezers to delicately loop and place the charms on each nail.

So why try this complex trend? Well for one, the design appeals to both minimalists who love clean-cut, geometric patterns and those who crave a little bling. Also, you can’t deny it: the results are jaw-dropping.
