Your memory of using nail stickers and decals might reach as far back as your middle school sleepover days. Don't worry, this trend isn't that. These nail embellishments are cooler, more elevated, and the stuff of Instagram gold. To execute the "tonal studs" nail art trend, you'll need your most prismatic pearls or gems, and, of course, your favorite nail polish color.
Chief Creative Officer of NYC salon Paintbox Eleanor Langston previously told POPSUGAR that she predicts that the look will be everywhere this Fall. "Adding a tonal stud is easy to do and looks modern and subtle," she said. "It adds chic interest to your nails."
Lady Gaga kicked off the trend with her pearl-encrusted manicure created by Miho Okawara, which she debuted on Instagram, and we're certain we'll see more A-listers try it out in the cooler months. In the meantime, check out the most eye-catching "tonal studs" nail art looks on the Internet, ahead.
