Move over mermaid waves, a new ocean-inspired beauty trend is taking over Instagram and it couldn’t be prettier. 

Introducing: waterdrop manicures.

The look features delicate, 3D beads of clear gel nail polish designed to look like – you guessed it – water droplets.

From minimalistic takes on the trend featuring droplet-embellished feature nails to maximalist drip-splattered designs, there are so many ways to wear the look.

Check it out.
