Photographed by Ysa Pérez- @ysaperez
You can always source your nail art inspiration from the beautifully styled flat lays on Instagram, but if you're looking for new, trend-forward designs that feel raw, real, and ahead of the trend curve — like something unexpected you'd admire on the girl sitting on a checkered picnic blanket six feet away at the park, or the one in front of you in the queue outside of Tesco — you have to go to the streets.
In a cross-country photo tour of America, local photographers from Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and New Orleans gave us a peek into exactly that: closeup manicure shots sourced straight from the coolest girls on the pavements and park benches of their respective cities. From colourful graphic designs to ballerina pink neutrals and every 2020 take on the French tip, scroll ahead to see it all.
