The latest trend to rock the world of nail aficionados all over the world, it's an eye-popping nail art trend that provides you tons of options to make your nail game way more exciting!


This technique oftentimes requires stick-on acrylic nails (fake nails) as the base. A lot of the products used contain harsh chemicals, so you want to protect your real nails from that. For the main nail artwork, technicians use gel nail polish as the base, and a thicker gel nail formula for creating the 3D shapes and patterns. Some even prefer to add stick-on appliqués to make the looks even prettier. The creation is cured using UV light, and you're good to go! 


In the gallery below, we've rounded up some of the hottest 3D nail designs we could find, so you could start bookmarking your next nail look! Swipe through:
