Replicating the look of glass with nail art styles is the latest movement in the manicure fashions that calls for using bits of cellophane to reflect light and look like shattered bits of glass. The overall look is quite feminine as the cellophane offers a prismatic array of technicolor hues without the use of colored polish.

The glass nail art is set to originate from Korea from the Unistella Salon. The aesthetic calls for a clear coat of nail polish with dozens of irregularly shaped bits of iridescent cellophane arranged accordingly like pieces from a jigsaw puzzle to cover the nails. As light hits the cellophane pieces they shimmer, like bits of sharp shattered glass.
