Broken Glass Geometric Nail Art

Geometric designs have been all the range for quite some time. I've seen geometric nail art decals and broken glass designs a lot lately. Here's how to make your own at home with the basics. I used leftover holographic Christmas wrapping paper I had bought at the 99 cent store. You can use any thin shiny paper.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 10 beautiful nails




  1. Cut a bunch of tiny triangles and elongated diamonds. Make them small enough so at least three to four sit on each nail with space between them. I used two-sided holographic wrapping paper, one side red, the other silver.
  2. Paint your nails with whatever base colour you choose. I went with neutral/nude. Let dry.
  3. Paint a coat of clear nail polish on one nail. Very quickly add on your cut shapes of paper. Gently press them into the clear polish. Repeat on all fingers.
  4. Ad

  5. Add a clear coat once you've done all your nails to lock in the shapes. Because I used double sided two-colour paper, some of the shapes got a reflective red tone from certain angles.
