When you’re buying sunglasses, having the right lenses is as important as selecting the right frames. You want lenses with a cool finish that change color and make the world look prettier. If you cannot get enough of all of the different types of lenses for sunglasses, you’re going to love the latest nail trend. Sunglass nails basically give you that same effect so it looks like you have little lenses on your nails.
The cool nail trend was discovered by Paintbox’s Creative Director Julie Kandalec on a trip to Seoul. The nails have a prismatic finish that change color in the sun, like your lenses. Julie explained to Refinery29 that she believes that the effect is created with a single nail covering as opposed to something that would require multiple steps.
Korea has given us some brilliant nail art looks recently from shattered glass to bracelet nails, and sunglass nails are another amazing example to add to the list. Fingers crossed that they perfect the sunglass technique at nail salons a little closer to home so we can all try out sunglass nails. We still love our gradient sunglasses, but we want to see what the effect is like on our digits for a change.
