Glass Nails

A HUGE nail art trend coming out of Korea is glass nails! Not real glass but the look of glass 😉

This awesome and really easy to create nail art was devolved by manicurist Eun Kyung Park , she started posting manicures like this to her Instagram and well, the nail art junkies wet crazy!! Me included!!

As soon as I seen pictures of these manicure I was on a mission to recreate one!

I tried a few looks, but I loved the look with a dark colored base.

What You’ll Need

Base color of your choice (I used L’Oreal’s Liyas Red)

Clear top coat (not fast drying)

Iridescent cellphone (craft store)


Wax pencil or toothpick

Remember that there is no rhyme or reason to creating this nail art, the point is for it to look like broken glass and broken glass is messy!

Achieving The Look

Cut small pieces of cellphone. Long, short, big, small! This is the most time consuming so definitely do this first!

Apply two coats of your base, let dry completely

Working one nail at a time, apply your top coat and while the top coat is still wet use your wax pencil or toothpick dipped in water to pick up the cellophane and apply to the nail. Add as much or as little as you would like!

Seal with two coats of your top coat and your done!

What do you think of this nail trend?
