Harry Styles is almost a bigger nail art fan than us, and we are so here for his painted tallons.

Harry Styles is known for breaking outside of gender norms and pushing fashion beyond many limits and painting his nails is just one of these trademarks.

The 'Adore You' singer had everyone talking about his Met Gala 2019 appearance after arriving in a sheer ruffled blouse, heeled boots, and with a pearl earring in one ear.

But his glamorous outfit details weren’t the only thing that caught our eye.

The former One Direction singer had painted his nails black and turquoise, decorating his fingers with chunky rings to show off the lace detail on his gothic blouse's sleeves.

Since then- he's worn different nail art to all kinds of major events including the BRITs, GRAMMYs and of course, Capital's Jingle Bell Ball.

Met Gala 2019

Harry’s daring ensemble was met with hordes of praise from fans, with many thrilled to see the pop star pushing boundaries.

However, that wasn’t the first time Harry has painted his nails, as the ‘Sign Of The Times’ singer is in fact a huge fan of decorating his hands – take a look…

June 2015

Fans first spotted Harry’s love for nail art after he painted one nail red ahead of a performance in 2015. At the time, Directioners thought he was showing his support for a domestic violence awareness campaign, but the campaign saw people painting just one nail purple. Nevertheless, it got people discussing the issue.

While hosting the launch party for his first solo magazine cover in 2016, Harry rocked black nail polish with his dapper Dior suit, proving style is all in the details.

Harry was pictured keeping a low profile while out and about in March, rocking a black hoodie beneath a fur-lined hooded jacket. But what was in full view was the star’s pink-painted nails as he typed on his phone.

Days later, he was spotted rocking the same gorgeous manicure with a vibrant blue flared suit after attending the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

One single appearance on an American breakfast show (The Today Show) and Harry Styles literally made like two enormous trends emerged and all he did was rehearse a performance and then do said performance.

The first is nothing to do with nails but we're going to talk about it anyway because it really hammers home his *power* and it was the multicoloured crocheted cardigan he wore to REHEARSE in that not only saw it sell out, bag a place in the actual V&A museum in London but started a whole crocheting TikTok trend.

Ok, now that is out of our system- his nails.

Yes, Harry continued to rock painted nails for this performance opting for a more muted, nude colour and honestly, goals.

GRAMMYs 2021

Harry served another set of unforgettable looks when accepting his first ever GRAMMY for Pop Solo Performance for 'Watermelon Sugar' and instantly made feather boas cool again.

Fans noticed, however, his nails weren't painted to begin with, but by the middle of the ceremony were multicoloured once more.

So, was Harry backstage at one of the most prestigious music events of the year getting a manicure?!

One more reason we stan.

Harry’s love of nail painting has inspired young boys around the globe to break outside of the gender stereotypes, with one fan previously tweeting the singer: “My little brother saw a picture of harry styles with his nails painted & made me do his bc he ‘didn't know boys were allowed’ we match now."

The tweet spurred a thread of similar messages, thanking Harry for leading the way.

Now this is a men's beauty trend we can get on board with!
