I have an amazing holographic shattered glass nail art we lovelies can sport at all our parties. They’re cool, funky, stylish and very tasteful so you will definitely drool over this. I’ve already tried out this nail design, and people were raving about how gorgeous my nail art is! I know you’ll love it, too.

Read on to find out how you can have this holographic shattered glass nail art.

For this dazzling nail art, you will need the following:

Before you even begin this nail art, make sure that your nails are all prepped properly. Also, make sure to put some base coat to make sure your nails remain healthy and would not chip.

Step 1: Paint peel-off base coat

Painting your nails with a peel-off base coat will ensure that you can easily take off the nail art if in case there’s something about it, you want to redo. In the same manner, it also allows easy peel-off once you’re done with the holographic shattered glass nail art design and would want to have something else. Make sure to cover the entire nail.

Step 2: Black base color

Next up is the use of the black nail polish. Black will serve as the base color of this holographic shattered glass nail art. It’s the perfect background to bring out the pop of color from the iridescent cellophane and holographic top coat.

Step 3: Brush holographic top coat

Creating maximum wow effect for this shattered glass nail art lies with the holographic top coat. It gives the design a different depth and dimension making it even astonishing. Brush your nails with at least two coats of the holographic top coat.

Step 4: Attach iridescent cellophane

It’s now time to paste the iridescent cellophane onto the nails. Make sure you do this while the holographic top coat is still wet. The cellophane is what gives this shattered glass nail art the actual glass effect. Reminder: attach the iridescent cellophane one at a time. Cut the edges to make them look perfect.
