Cable-Knit Nails Are Now A Thing On Instagram

Winter is well and truly here when there’s a new nail art trend to welcome it!

Women all over Instagram are ushering in sweater season by dressing their nails in 3D cable-knit designs that look like they’re wearing miniature sweaters. The designs look so cozy that I want to snuggle in front of a wood fire with a hot cup of cocoa in my fine cable-knit manicured hands. Hah!

If these nails are giving you holiday manicure goals too, you can achieve it by layering textured polish over your regular mani. However, it may not be something you can easily DIY at home so I suggest you take this to a professional who can do a neater job with a gel nail polish and curing lamps.

If you’re keen to try this yourself, use a gel polish and build on the layers little by little. Don’t forget to seal it with a good quality top coat at the end. Here’s a simple tutorial to get you started:



Take inspiration from these designs to try different things!
