Diamond Nail Art Is One More Reason You Don't Need A Ring On It

The latest and shiniest K-beauty trend is way better than gluing fake gemstones on your nails, and we're pretty sure it doesn't get any better than this.

Move over shattered glass manis and stained glass nail art because we've just discovered the biggest, brightest, and shiniest nail trend about to hit stateside.

K-beauty trends are becoming all the rage here on the Western hemisphere, from sunglass nail art and some rather insane beauty products, but we'd venture to say diamond nail art from South Korean nail artist Eun Kyun Park will soon trump them all.

Diamond nail art, you say? Yes, it's certainly one of the prettiest nail trends we've ever laid our mortal eyes on, and no, the technique does not use real diamonds (as far as we know).

Just like shattered glass manis, these manicures require a lot of diligence and patience, but we're assuming no cellophane is involved this time. Holographic nail foils and decals appear to be the MVPs of this nail art, paired with plenty of nail glue and top coat to keep all of this gleaming beauty in place.

Think you've got what it takes to give these gemstone digits a try? Check out Park's Instagram page for endless diamond manicure inspo.
