“Knit nails” is the coziest new trend in nail art, and you can do it at home

The “knit nails” nail art trend is the perfect way to make your nails winter-ready as sweater weather rolls around.

The 3D effect is created by mixing a thickening agent, like acrylic powder, with nail polish and then sculpting it into knitted patterns. We found this great tutorial on YouTube that shows you exactly how to do it.

If the 3D effect isn’t for you, fear not. You can still achieve the knit nails look by painting the pattern instead of sculpting it. Just use a super skinny brush to get the details.
