Does anyone remember when nail artists started posting those tutorial videos on Instagram? I sure do, and I would sit for hours on my phone intrigued each time a dollop of nail polish was dropped in the small beaker of water, prepared to be perfectly wrapped around a nail bed. And I know I can't be the only one. 

Now the look is seeing a resurgence — on the hands of celebrities like Kylie Jenner and on the runway this Fashion Week at Christian Cowans Spring/Summer 2020 showcase in a style created with Dashing Diva. So go ahead, check out some inspo that will mesmerize you. Literally.
