Need Nail Inspo? We've Got You Covered!
1. Album covers often preface the overall theme for the music
The grainy, out of focus Polaroid of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album sets the tone of anthems for the girl next door in her 20’s. Caught in her unsmiling candidness, Swift hints to the album’s 80’s influenced sound and her longing for freedom with a top that displays a flock of seagulls taking off.
2. They remind us to question our current society and politics
Everything that goes into creating an album, from lyrics to sound engineering, plays a part in capturing a snapshot of the world around us. With worldwide reach, album covers help us all to reflect on our ideologies, morals, and beliefs.

3. They have major influences on our culture
I mean, really though, how many times has this picture been recreated? Even if you don’t listen to The Beatles, you’ve seen this album cover at least once in your lifetime. The iconic Abbey Road even has a streaming webcam where you can see people holding up traffic just to recreate this picture around the clock.

4. They inspire absolutely gorgeous nail art
Some album covers are so pretty that you just need to wear them. They’re the products of many talents: photographers, graphic designers, painters, typographers, musicians, and more.
