Rose Quartz Nails

by Grazia |

There's a new nail trend in town and it's as eye-catching as they come - meet the rose quartz manicure. Not to be confused with the rosé nail trend (check out all the rosé nail inspiration you need right here), the rose quartz nail trend stems from a recent crystal revival, and it's no wonder that it is rose quartz that has made its way into the manicure arena.

According to renowned crystal and spiritual healer Emma Knowles, rose quartz is one of the most popular crystals going. 'Rose quartz is the queen of unconditional love,' Emma says, 'a maternal, calming, loving and patient piece.' Nail brand Nails Inc even went so far as to release a nail polish duo (Nails.Inc Nail Polish Duo in Crystals Made Me Do It, £15), which comprises a clear gloss containing small amethyst crystals, alongside a pale pink iridescent polish that's infused with real rose quartz - that's one way to keep the powers of rose quartz with you all day!

What we're interested in though is the rose quartz manicure trend. The aim of the game is to emulate the look of rose quartz on your nails, from the differeing tones of pale pink, to the chalky streaks of white. It's a subtle yet striking manicure technique that has caused a sensation on Instagram and Pinterest alike.

What To Ask For At Your Gel Manicure Appointment

The rose quartz manicure look is very specific and more complex than your average one-colour look, so it's not worth requesting specific shades. Instead bring clear pictures that illustrate the look if your nail technician is unfamiliar with it and, if they feel confident doing it, they will be able to select the right shades. Scroll further down and you have all the inspiration you need. If you are London-based or here for a visit and have time for a manicure appointment, the likes of Townhouse and DryBy are likely to be able to provide.
