We Can’t Stop Staring At This Mesmerizing New Nail Trend

If your heart went all aflutter after you saw last year’s shattered-glass nail trend, then we have excellent news. South Korean manicurist Eunkyung Park, owner of Seoul’s Unistella Salon and the creator of some of the most creative nail art we’ve ever seen, has sparked yet another trend we’re dying to get our hands on (or rather, get on our hands). And if you can believe it, it’s even shinier — and more mesmerizing — than her last.
Where the glassy technique used pieces of cellophane to create a prismatic effect, the updated version uses what looks like holographic foil that you’d find at a craft store. Park hasn’t shared her exact method of creating the look, but our guess is that she employs a similar cut-and-glue M.O. to create that diamond-like shine. (Hence why Park calls it the 3-D diamond nail.)

Considering just how quickly its predecessor look shot to Instagram stardom, don’t be surprised if diamond nail art starts showing up on your feed, like, yesterday. Want to beat everyone else to the punch? Grab some foil, a clear topcoat, a pair of scissors, and give it a try. Just don't do it on days you need to concentrate — because you won't be able to look away.
