After all, they make a sophisticated addition to our nails, with their 3D effect and their 'less is more' look that everybody can pull off. They’re also not as expected as rhinestones and other gems, yet they add a cool touch without being too flashy.

While the trend is probably easier to pull-off if you have it done at the nail salon, you can still go the DIY route—we have some insider advice for you!

First, start painting your nails with a sheer nude color, then apply nail glue on the spot where you want the pearl add-on to go. Use tweezers to manipulate it, and to have full control over where you’re placing your pearls. After that, paint over it with a top coat to ensure the pearls don’t get caught in your hair. Lastly, leave it to dry fully to avoid any boo-boos! Another helpful tip? Look for flat-back pearls, since they’ll stay put on your nail better.
