Standout Glamour Nails
The Insta-generation has an irrepressible desire to make show-stopping statements every day. It’s a way of finding joy in freedom of expression, and one of the reasons why party-ready styling has spilled into daytime. You can see it in a mash-up of high-octane retro looks and a tongue-in-cheek celebration vibe. Boasting eye-catcher status, crystallized nails play a big part in this Instagrammable trend, with Swarovski crystals leading the way.

From subtly sparkling designs to outrageous runway-ready looks, once you know the basics you can let your imagination run wild.
