On May 2, 1994, a Michigan State University student called Lisa started one of the early lines of conversation. The article described the airbrushed nail art that is available to those who have acrylic-based nail extensions.
Spread of Nails Meme
The number of nail salons increased in the United states around the 1990s, making simple manicures and artificial nails more accessible to people from all socioeconomic backgrounds, according to a 1999 New York Times article on the rise of nail art.
High fashion brands started to co-opt the trends as local women started experimenting with lengthy, flamboyant nails. Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen all used outrageous nail styles in print advertisements and on the runways.
