Pretty, shiny things.

Once upon a time in 2015, shattered glass nails took over Instagram. It was indeed the trend we never had the guts to try. Mainly because we thought, how on Earth do we replicate that? And, how many shattered vases are involved? Well, good news, amateur nail art enthusiasts. Press-on shattered glass nails exist–and they're just as good as the real thing.

The trend originates from nail art guru, Eunkyung Park, in South Korea. The original look in the Instagram above was created by using segments of cellophane to reflect light like facets on a gemstone. Intimidating, we know. But now that it's totally mainstream, we can kind of cheat our way in. We scoured the virtual shelves to find press-on nails worth testing.
