Celebrities, runway models, and even we commoners have gotten into nail art  – I mean, have you seen all the manicure & nail art kits at the drugstore? Whelp, turns out nail art is so 2013. The trend that Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, and Lady GaGa brought to the masses has spread to the fingers. Yeah,  it’s time to take it further  – decorating your fingers is the new DO.

Perhaps, Lorde sparked the finger-art trend? Her dip-dyed fingers acted as an accessory during her performance at the 56th Grammy Awards. MTV Style reports that the models’ fingers looked awfully similar at the Creatures of Comfort New York Fashion Week presentation. rad-nails-beyond-cuticle-art-1
