Wire nails

We've been patiently waiting with our unmanicured nails for 2017 to give us the best and brightest new nail trends. While some have come close to giving us #nailgoals, nothing compares to the newest nail fashion moment: Wire nails. 

Okay, we admit, we hadn't anticipated that the word "wire" would be included in our 2017 nail vocab, but you HAVE to see this statement beauty moment that involves using tiny gold wire to create gorgeous designs.

FRICK! This is nice.

This is so good. But, also, this is great.

By the looks of it, people are getting the wire embedded into the manicures (i.e. getting top coats and gel over the metal material) or they are building tips using the manicures. We don't actually know how practical wire tips are but they look fierce AF.

It's another creative way that nail artist are upping the ante when it comes to design. No word on how long wire nails last but it's certainly one way to add a bit of creativity to your otherwise standard nail look.
