What exactly is Art Deco? Well, to give you a crash course in art history –– this lavish pastiche of many different styles can be drawn back to a movement combining visual arts, architecture, and design in the 1920's and '30s.

In fact, it's a movement that was at the pinnacle of French luxury and modernism at the time. So what has that gradually transitioned to in the world of beauty today? Why, nail art that evokes style moderne, of course.

In other words, we've been seeing a return to the Art Deco-inspired design in nail art everywhere, from New York Fashion Week to our own pinboards. And we're loving the graphic and edgy yet streamlined style. So, if you're looking to lend a little extra polish to your mani –– pun fully intended –– you've come to the right place.
