Literary Nail Art


Stylus has been tracking a new nail trend that takes inspiration from literary tomes. Presenting famous works of literature as script across nails, painted in contrasting colours, the trend has been spotted across a range of literary and style blogs, including Nailed by Ally and 109.

Titles transferred onto talons include The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Pride & Prejudice and William Blake’s The Tyger. Reflecting an intellectual approach to nail art expression, this new direction further cements the position of the nail industry as the most creative and innovative sector of the cosmetics business.
