Can You Believe These Nail Art Looks?! Picasso would approve

No way? Stop it! An Instagrammable nail trend that doesn't have us side-eyeing and muttering 'why would you?' Can it be true? Yes it can!

Picasso nails are here and we are appreciating them! There's narry a fluffy tip in sight! Nor is there a pom pom, or a snow globe, or a cork screw (yes, cork screw nails are a thing). These nails are simply graced with beautiful art that can be enjoyed while one goes about their day. 

I mean... just look at it.


Don't you feel like you've had an injection of culture? The workmanship that has gone into this look from Kimiko Adachi is amazing. I don't have that much artistic talent in my... er... little finger!

What we love about this look though is that you can have basic skill and still pull off a Pablo-esque look.


Paint your nails a colour you love, grab a nail art pen or a detail brush, pull up an image of Picasso's Tete de Femme, then go to town!


Heck, you don't even have to use an image from Picasso - create your own looks in his style and say it's an homage! Simple, easy, stylish. What more could we ask for in a nail trend?

So will you be getting out your black vivid and releasing your inner artist? Is the Picasso nail the way you'd go? Or is it an 'oh no? Get chatting!

Interesting! I like them all except the red ones, which is scribbling gone a wee bit too far I reckon. But the others are fab.

Wow. Not for me though great works of art

Nope. If I had the talent I'd paint other things. Never been a fan of Picasso's artwork.

These are beautiful! I have terrible nail which break easily and I also don't have the patience to do art work on my nails, but I do admire the people who do

These are very clever and the nails are long. I have seen a lot of lovely nail art. I have not had this done to my nails.

The talent some people have is amazing. The red nails are my fav!

13th June, 2018

It's a cool look. I doubt I would be trying it though, no patience. However if someone made these into a nail sticker I would definitely buy it.

Not for me this one.

I miss having my nails done . Their gorge.

13th June, 2018

Why don't you get your nails done anymore?

13th June, 2018

Not allowed nail polish with my job . I really miss it . Only pedicures for me these days

12th June, 2018

Very clever.

Never been able to cope with long nails myself I'm too rough with my hands a nice mani is wasted on me sadly.

12th June, 2018

It does look cool but not my style so I wouldn't do it

I love a pretty nail art mani!! .....but I think these are a bit too out there even for me - especially the 'scribbles'! I don't need reminders of my kids early years impromptu wall art on my nails!
