With all the wildly creative nail art designs out there, the latest trend is completely unexpected but perfect for anyone who wants to get in on the action while embracing a more minimalist vibe.


Base coat nail art, which is basically understated nail art—think tiny flowers and fruits, colourful dots, simple stripes or a hint of sparkle—painted over a clear coat is trending on Instagram, and we’re loving it.

Check out some inspiration ahead, then call your nail salon for the soonest available appointment.
