Nina Park Creates Floral Tips Inspired by Runway Looks

Flowers continue to spring forth on fashions created for the season of rebirth. But this time around, designers plucked their petal inspiration from bygone eras—think: the 1960s and ’70s.
Trippy floral prints reminiscent of a ’60s psychedelic rock poster begged to be worn next to a lava lamp at Louis Vuitton. Dizzying flower-power prints at Paco Rabanne harkened back to the “free love” era when the brand’s namesake founder enjoyed fame with his future-forward clothing. At Fendi, oversize blossoms, either on a quilted set or highly lacquered coats, looked totally retro even if the wares they sprouted from were as of-the-moment as can be.
We always sing the praises of flowers as nail art; after all, what’s not to love about fresh-looking blossoms on tips? But consider changing it up this season with a little psychedelic flair, as Boston-based nail artist Nina Park does here. Introduce melting watercolor elements or a retro rainbow to give your flower nail art a blast from the past.
