Joy Division is, no joke, one of our top 10 bands of all time. To create nail art that would reflect everything we love so much about the post-punk English band—without adding any additional glitz or gaudiness—proved to be a difficult task. Luckily, the talented artists over at The Illustrated Nail PERFECTLY encapsulated every detail of the Peter Saville-designed Unknown Pleasures album and kept true to the band's no-nonsense, melancholy vibe. They used a dark blood-red polish for the base and crisp white for the pulse lines, but the dead-on execution is what really made our jaws drop.
