For those who love to stay ahead of the manicure curve, 'bracelet nails' are something to hop on board with.

Equal parts sophisticated, pretty and subtle, the style hails from Korea, and sees tiny intricate jewels and gems designed and stuck onto women's fingernails.

The process uses real charms, and can take as long as two and a half hours to complete.

Korean beauty blogger Alicia Yoon was one of the first to try the trend, when she uploaded a photograph of a set of crystal-encrusted nails onto her Instagram page. 

Explaining that the trend started in Seoul, Ms Yoon told Byrdie that bracelet nails are both a bit of fun, and very detailed:

'It's an interesting look because she [the nail artist at the nail salon, Unistella] uses real string and it looks like it's actually wrapped around your nail,' she said.
