The look couldn’t be more elegant

Beauty Crew Junior Beauty Writer / October 09 2019

Over the last couple of years, pearl-adorned jewellery, clothing and accessories have made a triumphant comeback with the fashion set. Now, the pearl-embellished trend is infiltrating the beauty world, too.

Pearl-studded manicures have begun appearing everywhere from Instagram to the runway, and we’re totally obsessed. From pearl-tipped French manicures to minimal pearl-dotted nails, there are endless ways to wear the trend.

I hardly ever do long nails on myself, but I had a dream of this design and had to create them. It's my @barbrastreisand X @rosalia.vt Nail Baby Rings by @doublemossjewelry @apresnailofficial for length. #nailart #pearlnails #longnails

Stunning, right? Besides being an elegant manicure choice for spring, we’re also thinking it would make for dreamy bridal nails.
