This gorgeous trend looks just like it sounds, with layered “jewelry,” or different-colored lines and pretty jewels, decking out your digits. Think of it as Japanese nail art‘s subtle sister. It will add a bit of bling to your summer style without costing you an arm and a leg like the real bits and baubles do. From tribal prints to next-level French tips, we’ve tracked down the most covetable bracelet nails on Insta that’ll have you ready to book your next mani-pedi ASAP. Scroll on to get inspired.
1. Half Moon: Don’t shy away from changing up the texture. Mix and match minimalist and intricate designs by pairing your half-moon mani with some haphazardly placed bracelet detailing (bejeweled, of course!).
2. Geometric: Metallics are your new best friend when it comes to this sleek and simple design. Highlight the negative space on your geometric mani with silver bracelet designs that are sure to give your painted nails that extra wow factor.
3. Clear: Okay, so maybe you’ve already mastered the bracelet nail trend. Now it’s time to push this style a bit further with a polish that proves less is more. Fully embrace this trend by adding multi-colored, blinged-out detailing to your clear polished nails. It’s a look that’s all about your bracelet design (and nothing else).
4. Bracelet Pedi: Don’t forget, your toes need love too! Summer IS the season for sandals, after all. Bring this playful new trend to your next pedicure for a style that’s ready to hit the beach. Just be sure to pick a nail color that won’t clash with your footwear.
