Pom-pom nails are officially a thing. According to Cosmopolitan, the trend started in South Korea and now women everywhere have decided to stick the fuzzy little balls to their nails in a wide variety of shapes, colours and sizes for a look that is fun, bright and oh-so fluffy.

The trend has been taking over Instagram and there's no shortage of creativity.

Start off small with tiny pom-poms at the base of the nail.

Of course the trend is a little fiddly but they're easy to recreate at home and definitely make for interesting nail art.
