We’ve seen a lot of interesting nail art trends over the years but 2016’s new pom-pom nails may be the best yet. Or, at the very least, the most texturally interesting.
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.
If you’re feeling daring then go bright and bold.

Or stick to a single colour — which you can match to the colours of your outfit.

If a full hand of pom-poms is too daunting then highlight only one finger for a slightly more manageable look.
This look is definitely not dishwasher safe but it is extremely eye-catching.
Going to the bathroom is not going to be easy with these large pom-poms.
And, for the really creative, you can even chop up the pom-poms to make interesting shapes — in this case eyebrows.
Of course the trend is a little fiddly but they’re easy to recreate at home and definitely make for interesting nail art.
