Celebrities like Ke$ha, Rihanna and Katy Perry have been known to add a little self-expression to their digits with elaborately decorated nails, but the trend isn’t merely sweeping Hollywood, it has worked its way across the country into small town salons as well.

Duck Feet or Flare Nails ?  These two names are given to a type of nails that is wide at the end of the tips and gradually narrow down at the end.  It is extremely popular among celebrities and teenage girls.

This new wave (of nail art) has been around  about two years and was first noticed in Hong Kong,” she says. “In a nail expo in Japan and Tokyo….They use crystals, glitter, 3D and Hello Kitty!

Proof that literally everything is in 3D these days, Nail Technician Expert Kandalec explains what the term means in relation to nail art.



“Basically it’s when you place anything that stands out from the nail — maybe a charm, a crystal or sculpted flowers made with colored acrylic,” she describes. “It can be anything you can find in a bead store, things that aren’t even really designed for nails. For example, the Japanese love Hello Kitty so we could use Hello Kitty buttons or anything like that which sticks out from the nail.”
