It’s always fun to get your nails done, but it’s especially nice in the summer when bright colors, bold prints, and unique styles are on display. And what’s a super popular manicure request these days? Yin-yang claws!
Yin and Yang is a Chinese philosophy that “pairs of equal opposites attract and complement each other.” According to WorldHistory.org, “As the Yin and Yang symbol illustrates, each side has at its core an element of the other (represented by the small dots). Neither pole is superior to the other, and as an increase in one brings a corresponding decrease in the other, a proper balance must be struck between the two poles to achieve harmony.”
And for those of us looking for a little more harmony in our daily lives, it’s nice to know that it can be at your fingertips!
We’ve got simple, minimalist takes on this yin-yang nail art trend, as well as loud and eye-catchingly beautiful yin-yang nail designs sure to inspire your own trip to the salon.
Get ready to book your manicurist as soon as possible and feel much more balanced in your life and on your nails – check out these nail art ideas for 2022!
