This is the recent nail art trend in Korea, called “유리 네일” meaning Glass Nails. These nails are made with decorative “crack glass flim” or “Holographic film” to create a futuristic and reflective effect. Even huge brands like Etude House are selling the glass films and made a micro video on instagram featuring how to DIY this at home with your own gelish sets.
