Millie Bobby Brown Gives the French Manicure a Y2K Twist

Millie Bobby Brown just put her own fresh twist on the swirl-nails trend, rocking the abstract design to the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked After Party in New York City on Aug. 10. At first glance, Brown's nails appear to feature a simple french manicure with clean, white tips, but upon closer inspection, you can catch a glimpse of the delicate waves flowing across each nail in complementary shades of pink. The end result is both simple but still wonderfully Y2K. Trendy and elevated all at once.

Although bright colors like the pinks on Brown's nails make this the perfect manicure for summer, the abstract swirl nail trend is shaping up to be a major trend for fall. Think understated neutrals, simple nudes, and rich shades of brown. The swirl trend seems to have originated from celebrity nail artist Chaun Legend, but we've since seen it on celebrities like Chlöe, who bedazzled her swirl nails with crystals, and La La Anthony, who wore her swirls on the very tips of her french manicure. But of course, swirl nail art is truly for everyone, and whether you're ready to attempt the design on your own nails at home or go to the salon, be sure to use Brown's manicure for inspiration.
