Skin and makeup sure. But nail art from South Korea? This innovative country has serving up some of the most innovative manicures we’ve ever clapped our eyes on, from broken glass finish manis to bracelet style nails. Well 2017 was no different.

Get ready to be awestruck.

Diamond nails

This year will see more decorative elements that go beyond the outline of the nail. Think thin metallic strips that criss-cross nails for a daring caged effect.

Negative space nails

This 2016 trend continues unabashed into 2017, with innovative designs that leave sections of the nails blank. Such a doable at home nail trend without spending on pricey gel manis.

Cuticle nails

Another super cute nail trend; tiny metallic tabs that draw attention to cuticles instead of over the top bling. Best suited for short nails. Another bonus: next to zero drying time.

Half-and-half nails

Color blocking is back, this time on nails. A fun concept that lets you try ten different colors on each of your pinkies. This year will be all about two-dimensional play rather than over-the-top stones, gems and 3 D effects.

This version of cuticle nails also uses negative space to stunning effect. Another doable at home trend that works on long and short nails.
