5 Salons That Are Bringing Back Nail Art

5 Salons That Are Bringing Back Nail Art

[:en]Nail art may be cool again, but there was a time not so long ago when its popularity was on the brink of extinction. You can chalk its endangered status up to design fatigue, or just an over-saturation in the marketplace. (We admit it, we can all be fickle about beauty crazes.)

But decorous manicures are reemerging in a major way, and there are several salons helping to make the trend relevant again. We highlight them, along with some examples of their work, in the slides ahead. You can check the spots out in person, bring these images to your salon of choice for inspiration, or try them out at home — whatever you do, know that we are 100% behind the renaissance of this trend.

Vanity Projects

The ultimate cool-girl spot for those looking for more out-of-the-box soon-to-be-copied designs. Think: Kimojis immortalized on your digits (seen here). Or if you’re looking to hop on the Rihanna pointy-nail bandwagon, that’s an option, too. They’re big on gel, but you can pretty much get whatever polish floats your badass boat.

We weren’t kidding about pointy nails being big at this salon. You can top them off with a metallic ombré finish, like this set.

An unconventional Valentine’s Day manicure you can wear way past the 14th.

Olive & June

On the opposite, pared-down side of the nail art spectrum (and the opposite coast), we have Olive & June. The Beverly Hills salon’s stunning, dainty designs are perfect for the beauty minimalists out there — sometimes less is, in fact, more. All the better when the artists don’t skimp on quality.

Marie Nails

With salons stretching from NYC to Japan (home to the original salon) Marie Nails has been at the nail art forefront for more than 10 years. No design is too intricate for these accomplished artists; portraits on nails and images of Givenchy-inspired Rottweilers are just some of the requests they’ve tackled.

Paintbox

Aptly referred to as the Modern Manicure Studio, Paintbox takes classic nail art designs and updates them. Think: unconventional french manicures and negative-space nails like you’ve never seen before. Its Instagram feed alone provides enough eye candy to inspire any creative individual out there.

This design, dubbed “the oil spill,” is the only kind of pollution we support.

Primp & Polish

Brooklyn-based Primp & Polish is where we imagine a majority of the designs recirculated on Instagram first emerged — as is the case with most Brooklyn shops, right? (Maybe I’m biased, because I live in Brooklyn, but show me the lie.) A prime example is 3-D art, as seen here.
