When it comes to beauty trends, nobody can beat the Koreans! And, this time around, it’s diamond nails that are creating all the buzz. While we saw the meteoric rise of the mesmerising “shattered glass” manicure, the latest hit in the beauty scene right now is the aesthetic extension of that, with a slight twist, of course! The multidimensional look is nothing less than hypnotic and eye catchy and while we are still awaiting a full DIY tutorial, the nail art is a fairly similar process to that of the glass nail, which involves gluing on tiny triangles of cellophane paper. It’s worth noting that there are a few great lacquers that give that holographic effect. And the best part is that you can try these out on short nails too! And while bling is a big part of this nail look, even different colours can work— because not all that glitters is diamond.

Pegged as the holiday nail art, diamond nails are classy yet chic, and perfect for this season that brings with it a bevy of festivities that’s worth decking up your nails for! The city is brimming with nail bars and salons, so get a basic manicure done before you try this on for a more polished finish.

Get glowy with a hint of diamond on your nails. You ought to sparkle, girl!
