Manicure trends are always evolving with the times.
Last year it was all about the aura glow nail trend and 3D jelly nail art trend, and now the pair have come together in 2022 to form the 3D orb nail trend.
Cool enough for the famous fingers of celebrities on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet (we see you Iris Law), and a slew of the nail artist industry’s most impressive creative talent, the 3D orb nail trend is one to watch….
Iris Law employed the helped of celebrity manicurist Mei Kawajiri for her Met Gala manicure. The pair created this iridescent icy blue orb shape that glowed on the red carpet.

Why settle for consistency when you could get creative? This glow-in-the-dark set of nails brings together a mishmash of different patterns and colours. We’re in love.

The beauty of the 3D orb nail trend is that it doesn’t require a perfect finish. Experiment with abstract shapes and designs until you find something that fits your style.
