This new 'shattered glass' nail art trend looks seriously cool

SHINY.

AFTER THE HORROR of the ‘bubble nails’ trend back in August, we’re relieved that the latest nail art fad is something we actually want to wear.

#glassnails are the newest trend coming out of South Korea ✨ What do you think of this #trend? I love it!! #partynails #celophane #nails #nailart #glam #beauty #mua #makeup #beautytrends #cheekybronzetan #sandiego #vsco #vscocam #vscogood #followme #follow4follow Source: Instagram/cheekybronze

This ‘shattered glass’ manicure is the newest nail trend to come from South Korea – the technique was developed by Seoul manicurist Eunkyung Park, and has since exploded on Instagram.

According to Refinery 29, though it looks finicky, the pieces of ‘glass’ are just shiny cellophane pasted on to the nail.

The finished manicure reflects the light beautifully, giving a 3D effect:

The trend is so big in Korea that Park has launched a line of stickers for people to replicate the look – and it’s crossed over into the mainstream, making appearances at the New York and Paris Fashion Weeks.
