Korea creates some of the best nail art designs in the world! Check out these designs to take to your next appointment.
Korea is taking the nail art world by storm. Inspiring the likes of famous names like Doja Cat, there is something adorably quirky and highly satisfying about Korean nail art designs. From avante garde chrome designs to terribly cute 3D shapes, check out this moodboard of Korean nail art designs!
Whole Lotta Chrome
Silver, gold, pink or green - you will see chrome everywhere on Instagram across the Korean nail art scene. It's a super fun way to explore your edgier side, but you can totally customise how far you want to go!
While some designs are cool and chic, some are extra girly and sparkly! Let's have a look at some more.
(Alien) Glazed Donut Nails
Hailey Bieber put glazed donut nails on the map. Although you can go the classic route, Korean nail art designers have taken this concept to another level.
This design uses a green duo-chrome powder instead of a champagne shade and layers little pearls and clear gel swirlies to complete the look. Most nail salons will have a full collection of different chrome powders so feel free to experiment with your own favourite colours!
Milky Purples and Chrome Hearts
Check out @unisella_kr for some kick-ass inspiration for quirky nails. This particular design is a personal favourite. I am in love with the pastel lavender shade with silver chrome accents.
Pink Clouds with Silver Stars
Gradients and ombre designs are standard features of Korean nail designs. You can take this to the next level by adding little accents and stickers for extra texture. Hit up your nearest Korean nail salon for the best selection of chrome colours, stickers and colours.
The combination of pink and silver is gorgeously modern and trendy. So satisfying to look at!
Short Nails? No Problem
As a short-nails-girl, Let me tell you that just because you have short nails, it doesn't mean you can't rock killer designs. In fact, the shorter the nail, the edgier you can go without going too overboard.
Take a look at this design by @j3nnailedit- chic, cute and definitely a statement.
Matisse designs have been a thing for a long time, but when it is overlaid upon pearly textures and sea shells, you are left with a magical result that screams modernity.
To get this design, request a seashell or glazed chrome foundation with painted Matisse emblems and some thick gel shapes.
