If you dropped the ball on booking a manicure appointment for NYE, there’s still hope for your less-than festive nails. No matter what you’re wearing or where you’re going, shattered glass nails are the best beauty trend to bring in 2016. If 2015 was the year that Korean beauty trends made their way stateside, glass nails are their lasting impact (along with snail masks, of course).
The look, created by Korean nail artist Park Eun Kyung, was made for Instagram, as evidenced by her 70,000 (and growing) band of followers. To create this look, she made holographic paper into stickers, although many salons still hand-cut the paper, which looks like an abalone shell you would find at the beach. Even if you won’t be anywhere near the ball drop on January 31, you can still have a disco ball of your own at your fingertips.
If you’re looking to add a little sparkle to your look last minute, there’s Vanity Projects and Akiko Nails. You might have to venture to the Lower East Side, but the Instagram likes will be worth it. Best of all? Even if you have yet to decide on the perfect New Year’s Eve ensemble (or more likely, haven’t gone shopping for it), your nails will match, as the broken glass changes color based on the light and the way they’re layered.
