DIY GlassNails⎜Nail Inspiration by Unistella

I have been obsessed with Unistella‘s Instagram account, gushing over all of their nail designs. Since I can’t get their magical touch any time soon, I thought I’d learn one of their most loved nail design to do on my own. It is their “glass nails” aka “유리조각네일” (yoo-lee-jo-kaak nails). Basically, it makes your nails look like they have broken glass pieces on them. It is so pretty, and totally chic enough that goes with any kind of outfit!

I’m still mastering this, but I think the first try isn’t so bad! I had to buy a holographic film and cut them to tiny triangular pieces. After putting on one layer of Essie‘s “Sugar Daddy” I took a tweezer and placed them on my nails. Make sure you don’t wait until your nails are completely dry! You can find these holographic films on Ebay or on an online site called Born Pretty.

Here are the closeups! (Please do not take the pictures without putting credit on them!)

    I'm a fan of unistella too! And your glass nails DIY looks amazing! 💅🏻👌🏻💎
    You mentioned "holographic film"… is this similar to the foil nail? Can you tell me if I can shop yours online? It's not easy to find it in Mexico and I will go to NY until March, is a long wait! lol 😝
    Thank you for your help and for sharing this DIY. 😄
