Be Life of the Party with This Shattered Glass Nail Art
Can you believe it’s only a few days more before we welcome a new year? Where did all the time go? It’s around this time when I usually prepare myself to list down some New Year’s resolutions, and mentally kick myself to go out there and actually do what’s on my list. By now, I also feel so guilty about not being able to cut back on all those yummy chocolatey goodies! But hey, I got some back up plan on how to get my sort of flat stomach.
Anyway, with the New Year’s party looming, I have an amazing holographic shattered glass nail art we lovelies can sport. They’re cool, funky, stylish and very tasteful so you would definitely drool over this. I’ve already tried sporting this nail design a few days ago and people were raving about how gorgeous my nail art is! I know you will too.
Read on and find out how you too can have this holographic shattered glass nail art for your New Year’s Eve party.
For this dazzling nail art, you will need the following:
- Peel-off base coat
- China Glaze black nail polish
- Holographic top coat
- Glossy top coat
- Iridescent cellophane cut in tiny pieces
Before you even begin this nail art, make sure that your nails are all prepped properly. Also make sure to put some base coat to make sure your nails remain healthy and would not chip.
Step 1: Paint peel-off base coat
Painting your nails with a peel-off base coat will ensure that you can easily take off the nail art if in case there’s something about it you want to redo. In the same manner, it also allows easy peel-off once you’re done with the holographic shattered glass nail art design and would want to have something else. Make sure to cover the entire nail.
Step 2: Black base color
Next up is the use of the black nail polish. Black will serve as the base color of this holographic shattered glass nail art. It’s the perfect background to bring out the pop of color from the iridescent cellophane and holographic top coat.
Step 3: Brush holographic top coat
Creating maximum wow effect for this shattered glass nail art lies with the holographic top coat. It gives the design a different depth and dimension making it even astonishing. Brush your nails with at least two coats of the holographic top coat.
Step 4: Attach iridescent cellophane
It’s now time to paste the iridescent cellophane on to the nails. Make sure you do this while the holographic top coat is still wet. The cellophane is what gives this shattered glass nail art the actual glass effect. Reminder: attach the iridescent cellophane one at a time. Cut the edges to make them look perfect.
Step 5: Seal with top coat
To protect your shattered glass nail art, seal it with a glossy top coat. This ensures that the iridescent cellophane stays in place. Plus it gives your nail design an amazing finish.
