Vinyl Nails Are the Newest Trend in Nail Art
By Karen Almo
Nail art has been a big thing for a few years now, especially on Instagram. The other day, I was scrolling through my feed and came across an article on a new nail trend: vinyl nails. I had never heard of them before, but they looked pretty cool.

Next, paint over the decal with two coats of your favorite polish color. You can use one coat if you want a sheer wash of color, or go for three coats for a deeper shade. Once your polish is dry, carefully peel back the decal with your orange stick. It’s really important that your polish is completely dry before removing the decal because otherwise the wet polish can smear and ruin the design! And remember: always start by applying
The newest trend in nail art is here. Vinyl nails might sound like fancy newfangled press-on nails, but they’re actually quite the opposite. These semi-permanent nail wraps are not only easy to apply, but they also last for a week or more and don’t require drying time. In fact, these babies have staying power that even the best acrylic and gel manicures can’t compete with.
“Vinyl nail wraps are so cool because they combine the design aspects of nail art with the simplicity and durability of gels,” explains Melissa Bozant, a New Orleans–based manicurist who works with celebrity clients like Demi Lovato and Solange Knowles. “They are made of soft vinyl plastic film and can be applied directly to the nail without any heat or special equipment.”
