Shattered Glass Nails

Soooo...today's post is about one of the easiest nail art looks I've ever done. And so pretty, oh so pretty!!

I first saw magical nails like this on Pinterest and fell immediately in love. I mean, who wouldn't! They're just gorgeous. So I started to research the items I needed to recreate the look and found that it seemed fairly simple..

You will need:

Angel Foil Wrap - I got mine from eBay (The seller was ex4im_ltd - I don't know them, but received excellent service)
Nail Foil Adhesive Glue - another eBay job, this time from iluvthisworld2010 which arrived really quickly and well packaged.
Scissors
White nail polish
Top Coat

Method:

I simply cut small triangles of the nail foil out before painting all of my nails white. After they were dry, I put on a thin coat of the adhesive glue which dried to a tacky finish. After that, I placed the triangles where I wanted them and trimmed any excess.

This was my first attempt and I assumed it would be a disaster but it wasn't! The results were perfectly passable if difficult to photograph...! Another thing to bear in mind is that these looked WAY better from a slight distance. Up close, the white nail polish was a little patchy and the angel foil could have been neater but from a distance, I was entranced by the holographic gorgeousness!



The nail foil really caught the light, shimmering and reflecting beautifully!

The next time I do these nails, I will cut smaller triangles as well as placing them more carefully. I think I'm also going to try a gel topcoat set with UV light as a clear topcoat crinkled the foil a little.

Still, for the amount of effort it took, I was mesmerised by these!!

What are your easy nail art looks??

Have a beautiful day, inside and out
