The pop art-inspired manicure sweeping TikTok is comic book nails.

With BeautyTok’s latest obsession with comic book-inspired nails that make your tips appear to be straight out of an old-school episode of The Simpsons or (my personal favorite show growing up) Rugrats, nostalgia for all things ’90s is currently truly unavoidable in the world of beauty and fashion. And even though Halloween is officially over (as is the deluge of classic cartoon character costumes this year), manicure-obsessed girls still seem to want to inject some originality and color into their daily beauty routines.

Fortunately for DIY polish painters, the trend taking over TikTok’s viral platform only needs a few supplies: a pop of your preferred color, an opaque white nail polish, a pure black shade, a tiny detail brush for precision, and of course, a steady hand.

Here’s a quick tutorial: Apply two layers of the vibrant color of your choice first. Next, on one half of the nail, use the deeper colored shade to draw a somewhat thick outline. Once that has had a chance to dry a little, completely outline the nail with a thin black pigment (this is intended to resemble the inking that a comic book inker would do). Add some highlights and lowlights with some thin white and black lines just before a final clear top coat. It’s done.

If vibrаnt pop аrt isn’t your thing, TikTok isn’t аfrаid to experiment with nаil аrt trends thаt rаnge from outrаgeous to minimаlly chic, with brаnd-new concepts аppeаring on For You Pаges every single dаy. I believe some of the stаndouts. Velvet nаils, Hаiley Bieber’s infаmous glаzed donut nаils, аurа nаil аrt, hаlf moon mаnicures with Old Hollywood flаir, аnd аn uncomplicаted trend cаlled the red nаil theory.
