Out-there nails have never been more in vogue – look no further than Cardi B, zeitgeist queen of the moment, who is never seen without blinged-out nails, or Blake Lively’s Met Gala talons, which proved that nail art isn’t niche any more – it’s gone mainstream.  Creations can be 2D or 3D, and can feature anything from pearls, seashells, diamantes, and crystals, to metal embellishments, gold or silver and copper leafing, bows, roses, holographic finishes and of course, custom hand sculpted acrylic embellishments - meaning the sky is the limit when it comes to design. There are so many nail styles to rock nowadays, but most of us…
