The latest nail art look to pop up has been dubbed as the shattered glass look. To achieve this, all you need is opal nail foil or mylar flakes. Alternatively, you can use chunky glitter cut randomly to give it that jagged look.


Follow these simple steps to create your own shattered glass manicure:

Step #1: Start by cutting up the pieces of glitter or flakes in a random fashion to make them look like shards of glass.

Step #2: Apply nail polish like you normally would and leave to dry.

Step #3: Working one nail at a time, apply a clear polish and using a dotting tool, start placing the flakes onto your nail in a pattern of your fancy. You can opt for a shattered mirror effect or geometric shapes – the possibilities are endless, really!

Step #4: Seal everything with a top coat and you’re done!
