Tortoiseshell Nail Manicures Are Back On Our Roster


Getting my nails done feels like self-care to me, and that's not up for debate. When I was younger, I stuck with bold colors on my nails, but didn't really dip my toe into nail designs until I got older. Once I started getting more confident in myself, I realized that I love elaborate and intricate nail art because it literally is a second version of self-expression. But of course, nail trends come and go, and it's always hard to keep up.

Well, IG has spoken and tortoiseshell nails are back on our roster.

I think this trend means a lot to me because I had a tortoise growing up #sentimentalmoment, but these nails are also fire with their design. Just looking at the #tortoiseshellnails hashtag will immediately fill you with nail envy and excitement for a hot girl summer. People have put their own spin on the trend — from adding neon (another nail trend) stripes to some nails, to a variety of coloration and technique.

If you're interested in the trend, remember that it's not about mastery, it's about fun. So, if you're down to try tortoiseshell nails, we've rounded up a few recommendations on how you can put your own flavor on it:

​Tour Interior Designer Annisa LiMara's Organic Modern Meets Midcentury Modern ATL Abode

In xoNecole's series Dope Abodes, we tour the living spaces of millennial women, where they dwell, how they live, and the things they choose to adorn and share their spaces with.

Annisa LiMara has called this space her home for two years. Her Atlanta sanctuary, which she aimed to give the look and feel of something you'd see in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest, embodies her vision of "stunning, yet functional and cozy."

"My home is a reflection of my brand, The Creative Peach Studios, and I am the 'Creative Peach,'" Annisa explains. "It was so easy to reflect who I am and my personal story in my space. When you walk into my home, you know that it is Annisa’s home. I’m so proud of that. So grateful."
