This gorgeous wire work trend will reignite your love for nail art

So. Good.

As the New Year becomes less 'new' and more 'flashing-before-our-eyes', we're getting a good sense of what 2017 is bringing us in terms of beauty trends.

We already know what to expect for our lips. Thanks to the absolute Goddess that is Charlotte Tilbury, Pillowtalk will no longer be just a lip pencil but an actual lipstick, too.

And we're all clued up on the best cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics brands for those who fancy an ethical make-up bag makeover.

So it feels like the perfect time to get our nails involved in the beauty conversation.

And thankfully, we've spotted these gorgeous accessories that are going to make you fall in love with nail art all over again.

The wire work nail requires 3D sculptured designs that sit on the nail, giving them flare even if you only fancy a clear coat.

So sassy.

Salon owner Eun Kyung Park is the brains behind the whizz behind the wire, and has been creating these marvellous, tiny pieces for cuticles and tips.

Erm, how good?

Talking to Marie Claire, Eun said: "When you make neon signs, you have to bend the wires to make certain lettering.

"It's one long wire that's bent to create and connect the letters. I thought this was really cool and since nails are an accessory, I wanted it to be used for expression."

Not only do they look pretty badass, but there are so many variations of the wire work piece, whether you want a nail face or to fake length.

And if you want to keep it cute and simple?

Park is able to create these beauties using just a bit of wire and a tweezers, before placing on the nail and allowing to cure under a UV light, before finally finishing with a top coat to ensure they stay put.

Easy, right? We know what we'll be doing tonight.

Sort of like when we started piercing our nails with earrings in the 90s, but a million times better.
