Mother of 3 Creates Gorgeous Fidget Spinner Nail Art

By  | 

With fidget spinners becoming such a popular trend these days, there’s no surprise that nail art would soon be inspired by these gadgets. What caught us by surprise is how gorgeous these fidget spinner nail art creations are.

 

 

Natasha Lee, a thirty-something mother of three and award-winning nail artist from Wales, United Kingdom, has created nail art inspired by fidget spinners, which have already gone viral. Prior to the fidget spinner nail art, Lee has previously gone viral for other nail trends, including her version of the double-sided manicure with crystals and the polish mountain.

 

“I wasn’t expecting it to get so much attention. But the boys have loved watching it go viral. It’s also really nice to get acknowledgement in an industry where there is so much awe-inspiring talent; it’s hard to create something that’s never been done before and if you go out planning to do so, it never flows easily.”

 

 

The Inspiration behind the Nail Art

Lee told Cosmopolitan.com what influenced her art:

 

“I have three sons who are all autistic, so when I saw these through a special needs group, I bought my two oldest children—a nineteen- and a nine-year old—each a fidget spinner, and then one for my youngest, who’s four, and likes to have his hands kept busy. And then they became really popular a few weeks later.”

 

According to the nail artist, she created the fidget spinner nail art because simply wanted her children to be part of the narrative. She shares:

 

“My boys love YouTube— they like the novelty value. So I created this tutorial to make something they can be a part of too; they watched me create the spinner in my office and because of that they feel like they helped with the video and helped it go viral. Oftentimes children with special needs can feel excluded, so this makes them feel included, and something as simple as this helps them feel like they belong.”

 

The Fidget Spinner Nail Art Video Tutorial

In Lee’s video tutorial, she molds the spinner out of nail acrylic and uses an electric file to smoothen it. The spinner is then attached to her nail using nail glue. A bead is added to serve as a washer so that the spinner can spin. Everything is held together with a sewing pin that has a ball on the end.
