Everyone from Selena Gomez to Khloé Kardashian and Lizzo have worn crystal nails over the last year, solidifying its status as the nail trend for special occasions.

Though you may not have a red carpet event or upcoming world tour to plan for, rhinestone designs make for great birthday nails and even engagement nails if you really want to make a statement. The manicure style may seem a little over the top to some, but it's in keeping with the 3D-nails trend that's grown in popularity throughout the last few years. From full crystal-encrusted fingertips to tiny crystal accents that add just a subtle touch of sparkle, there are a variety of different ways to experiment with the trend.

For those not on Gomez's and Jennifer Lopez's level and unable to get their hands on real Swarovski crystals, you can shop for nail rhinestones on Amazon. We like the Huetfat 2400pcs Nail Gems Ab Flatback Rhinestones Gems Stones ($8) and Canvalite 1500pcs Rhinestones in 6 Sizes ($16) — both come with a range of sizes, a carrying case, and a tool to make application easier (because anyone who ever tried to bedazzle anything back in the 2000s knows how difficult rhinestones are to pick up).

Whether you plan to give yourself an at-home manicure using nail crystals or you're looking for inspiration to take with you to the salon, there are plenty of cool manicures out there to inspire you. We've rounded up some of the best crystal nails, ahead.
