If any of you were checking up on beauty trends back in the noughties, you'll know that pierced nails isn't a newbie on the mani block. Victoria Beckham used to rock the odd stud or Swarovski encrusted hoop through a thickly French manicured acrylic (squarely filed of course!). We had thought that mini-obsession went out with her bleached blonde crop, but no, it's back and crazier than ever!
Its first return came backstage at Fyodor Golan's SS17 London Fashion Week offering. Sabrina Gayle, Lead Nail Technician with Orly at Fyodor Golan created a mix of long oval shaped nails in bright pinks and nudes, a few of which were pierced and adorned with column shaped gems. Sabrina said that 'as there was a lot of haberdashery in the Fyodor Golan studio, I decided to add crystals to some of the girls' nails, by piercing the tips and hanging them with miniature rings. It makes the nails the final accessory to the outfit'. It has to be said this look was matched with a dark navy lip and silver cupids bow – it's safe to say the whole effect was not intended as ready-to-wear chic.
That didn't stop Kimmy K trying out the new fad though! She Snapchatted her newly pierced nails, and didn't hold back on the jewellery. Her tastes might be questionable sometimes but you can't deny she's a trendsetter, chances are we're set to see a lot more nail piercing action in the coming months, keep your peepers peeled!
