2017 has been a great year for cinematic nail art.
We may be approaching peak craze with the latest Instagram trend, however: Stranger Things-inspired nail art. Ever since the second season was released, folks have been designing Eleven-themed nails and other Demogorgon-inspired patterns.
No matter what you think about think about the second season, you’ve got to admit — this looks good.
The trend really kicked off toward the end of October. Most of these designs can’t be executed unless you’re an absurdly talented nail professional, or drunk and have no standards.
A lack of talent (or inhibitions) doesn’t mean you can’t like these posts from the comfort of your own home.
Take a look and feel envious.
