We all know about the amount of stress involved in choosing your mani colour… that all-too-familiar sinking feeling when you’re presented with the nail swatches and ask yourself, since when did that many colours exist? Just deciding on a shade of red requires sheer concentration.

But to be fair to ourselves, we’re stuck with this colour for the next three weeks, so it makes sense to take our time over it.

Well, the good news is that we have your back, and for some serious inspo, take a look at the fire-and-ice nail trend blowing up on Insta. We’re pretty sure we want our nails to look like this permanently.

The trend was started by The Nail Boss, well known on Insta for his intricate and fun nail designs.

He creates the mesmerising fire-and-ice nails using thin film, which he layers with different-coloured nail polishes and gems. The finished effect is so damn pretty, we can’t stop staring!
