Shattered Glass Korean Nail Art by Eun Kyung Park

Many people got to know about Korean nail art when the shattered-glass nail phenomenon broke social media in 2016. Since then, there have been many new designs and artwork that has caught out attention. Just like any other fashion trend, things come and go. The same is the case with nail art; trends keep on changing. Here are some of the recent Korean nail art styles for inspiration!

Diamond nails

If you like bling, then this is right up your alley! You can put huge rhinestones all over the nail to get that shiny, blingy look. It can also be created by placing multiple pieces of different cellophane sheets, so they appear like diamond facets. Overall, it has a more holographic effect and gives you an edgy look.

Futuristic nails

Just like the name suggests, this is something that goes beyond the nails. The decorative elements cover more than just the nails. In this picture, the thin portion goes beyond the outline of the nail and gives it a more caged effect.

Negative-space nails

In this design, there is a blank space around any geometric area. This negative space makes the design pop and appears bold.

Half-and-half nails or better half nails

It is simple but still looks pretty. This colour block style focuses on colour and not texture, unlike the diamond nails and futuristic nails. You can even paint all ten nails in different colour combinations.

Tattoo nails

Unlike coloured nails, in this style, the nails have no colour, but they have a sticker with a tattoo-like design. They generally have illustrations or fun graphics to make it look funkier.

Cuticle nails

This style focusses on outlining the nails so that they pop out. You can put glitter or some bright colour like electric-blue at the cuticle line to make it prominent.

Tartan nails

They feature the iconic Scottish pattern, also known as plaid. It was featured on runways in Fall 2018. They are a perfect representation of sophistication and elegance.

Accent bling nail

This is a variation of the diamond nails. If you feel that the diamond nails are too shiny, you can have regular nail art and accent it with a rhinestone or a gem.

Cartoon nails

Time to relive your childhood! You can draw cartoon characters on your nails, either on all five fingertips or choose an accent nail. The others can have minimalist art, so the accent cartoon character pops out.
