Well, we’re no longer surprised that Korean beauty trends are taking over our feeds as well as our beauty routines
and our lives. But there’s a new K-beauty trend in town that doesn’t involve your hair and face. Have a look at the glistening diamond manicure.
If you remember those Korean glass nails from a while back, they were actually developed by Eunkyung Park, the owner of Unistella Salon in Seoul. Now, she’s back with this new shattered-effect creation, but with a slight twist. The glimmering, prism-esque design reflects light from every angle, and it’s nothing short of hypnotic. While we await a complete nail tutorial, we’re guessing that this look entails a fairly similar process to that of the glass nail, which involves glueing on teeny tiny triangles of cellophane paper.
Itching to give this look a try? You can start by experimenting with different types of cellophane paper to achieve that opalescent effect. Before you stick bits of it on, try rolling them a little to get a slight curve so that it’ll sit perfectly on your nail, otherwise, they’ll stick out awkwardly. But if that’s your style, then go ahead and stick ’em on straight.
