Mani Mania

I've seen a lot of funky manicures in last months and I'm wondering if they are returning to our hands. Nail art was a big thing in the 90's, I remenber I had this magazine cutout featuring nails with sequins decorations and I loved it, but I never tried it. In the 21st Century it all started with Minx, the adhesives with patterns and metalic colours that you stick to your nails. Minx started to pop out in 2008 after a video of Beyonce using gold minx nails. I'm sure is ladies below fault if we start doing manicures that look like mussels !
Funky Mani mania influenced by singers as Lana Del Rey; Lady Gaga; Adele; Beyonce; Katy Perry; Rihanna.
