Today’s mani suggestion includes a rendition of the famous and popular Korean trend: the glass nails.

For those who don’t know, glass nails are THE THING in Korea right now. The traditional way of doing them is by using a special variation of iridescent cellophane. Β I searched for the right cellophane for days and days, but I couldn’t manage to find it in any store in Bucharest (I only found the matte variation which did not apply for what I wanted to do). So, while I came across glass like confetti in the Christmas isle, I knew that was it. The faster and easier way of achieving the glass nails right there.

What you need:

  • a basecoat (optional)
  • a nailpolish (I picked white -OPI Alpine Snow- for now, I intend to do a version of this in black as well)
  • glass like confetti
  • topcoat

I simply put on two layers of my chosen polish, applied the confetti with a wet cotton swab while the nails were still semi-wet and then applied the topcoat.

It was so utterly difficult taking pictures of these. They look so much better in real life.

Perfect for a New Year’s Eve Party and oh so eye-catching.
