From period pads to nipples – femme nail trends to celebrate women all year


TextGaby Mawson

Free your feminine energy

Last week, we looked into dick manicures – the trend that seems to be growing in the world of nail art – but this trend has now been given a new feminine lease of life. 

Nail art IG accounts including @nail_sunny and @ohriginails have created masterpieces such as sculpted 3D vagina nails and nail illustrations of the female reproductive system. Other accounts have posted nail art images that include boobs, nipples, and even sanitary products. This fun trend is a light-hearted way to celebrate on IWD – or you could do one better and support women (all women) all year round. 

Below are a selection of our favourite feminist nail trends below; there’s even a tutorial in there so you can recreate the 3D vagina nails, if you’re feeling brave enough.
