Shattered Glass Star Gel Nails

Glass Star nails by @chalkboardnails

If you've been around the world of nails lately, you know that shattered glass nails are still going strong! Even amongst the sea of chrome and unicorn holo, I still see shattered glass effects being incorporated into manicures.

The basic idea of shattered glass nails involves putting shards of iridescent cellophane, origami paper, or reflective tape on your nail to create a unique and eye catching glass look. Here's a slightly different look that I did with the style!

Hand-Placed Glitter Flowers

Glitter floral nails @chalkboardnails

Here's a bit of a throwback look for ya! I did these nails probably about a year ago, and while I posted about them on social media, they never made it to the blog here. Plus, with fall arriving, these neutral tones with a slight twinge of grey are right on schedule.

Disney Tsum Tsum Character Nail Art

Disney Tsum Tsum Nail Art by @chalkboardnails

In August, Sean and I went with a couple of friends to Disneyland! I hadn't been in a few years, so I obviously had to go all out with the nail art. I picked a few of my favorite characters, and painted them Tsum Tsum style on my nails.
