Woman Had A ‘Fidget Spinner’ Built Into Her Mani

A mum of three's manicure has gone viral, after the award-winning nail artist from the UK created fidget spinner nail art. 

The idea came after she noticed how much her three autistic boys loved the latest craze.   

"When I saw these through a special needs group, I bought my two oldest children — a 19- and 9-year old — each a fidget spinner, and then one for my youngest, who's 4, and likes to have his hands kept busy," Lee told

"And then they became really popular a few weeks later."  

Lee, who has a large Youtube following, said she created the nail art to so her children could be part of the narrative.

"My boys love YouTube — they like the novelty value," Lee explained.

"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," she continued.

"Often times 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."

She uses nail acrylic (liquid and powder) and then files it with an electric file to make the fidget spinner. 

"I wasn't expecting it to get so much attention," Lee added. "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."
