While bracelet nails and chain nails were a surprising manicure trend last year, wire nails are the latest innovation which brings metallic fingertips to new levels. Although shimmering decals and details are nothing new in the manicure world, wire nails interpret the trend quite literally. In fact, wire-adorned nails feature tiny and intricate three-dimensional designs. Added on top of the nail, the wiry finish offers a cool, funky architectural finish.

On Instagram, beauty lovers can be spotted with gold wire-accented nails. Placed atop every shade of nail polish from sheer to vampy red, the wire accents bring an eye-catching touch to fingernails. While some nail lovers are sticking to minimalism in the form of clear tips, others are gravitating toward basic black and pale pink. Occasionally, the addition of floral nail art and faux gemstones helps to transform nails into a statement look.
