I’ve seen multiple nail artists do these shattered-looking nails.  At first glance, it didn’t seem hard to do, and since I’ve tried it for myself, I can say it wasn’t.  It is however a bit time consuming, especially if you plan to do all of your nails with this design, but I love how they turned out.

Items Needed:

  • Top Coat
  • Base Coat
  • White acrylic paint
  • Nail art brush
  • Dotting tool

Polish Used:

Step 1: After applying your base coat, coat your pinky and your index fingers in a greenish blue.


Step 2: Add a bit of water to the white acrylic paint and using your nail art brush, paint lines all over your middle and ring fingers.  Make sure the lines create small angled shapes.


Step 3:  Then using your dotting tool, dip the dotting tool in each color that you are going to use and fill in any shape with those colors.  Make sure you leave some spaces open to expose parts of your naked nail.


Step 4:  Again with the acrylic paint, go back over the white lines to make the colored spaces look neat.


Step 5:  Apply your favorite top coat to all of your nails and you are all done.
