Recently on InStyle, celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi shared a DIY tutorial for nail art inspired by graphic lines. We usually shy away from DIY nail art but this tutorial looks super easy and anything really goes, from criss crosses to vertical and horizontal lines. The best part is you don’t have to worry about it being too perfect and that’s a nail art trend we’ll support. So this fall we’ll be rocking our graphic lines with low key outfits to let our DIY nail art really pop. Cheers!
