It seems we just can’t get enough of the unicorn beauty trend and that it was only a matter of time before it extended to our fingernails. Now, unicorn horn nails are a thing – and they’re enchanted.

Yes, you did read that right. We aren’t talking the classic white, pink, purple and blue colours of the unicorn itself… this time it’s the mythical creature’s swirly, sparkly horn that we’re obsessing about for our nail art, which has been trending on Instagram…

So how is this look created? Naio Nails shared a detailed video on their YouTube channel, showing how the swirly horn is made with acrylic and pigment powder, which is sculpted, then covered in mega gloss. It looks as if it needs a lot of practice, so we suggest taking a trip to your local nail salon.

If, like us, you’d like the magic powers of a unicorn with you on a daily basis – for when life gets just that little bit boring – we think this is the way to do it.

Will you be trying the unicorn horn nail trend? We’d love to hear from you!
