Stained Glass Nail Art Designs to Bring With You to Your Next Mani AppointmentFebruary 26, 2020
Stained Glass Roses
This is the original picture we saw that made us fall head-over-heels in love with stained glass manicures. We love how @JessicaWashick gave the roses and leaves the spotlight by not filling in the other shapes in the mosaic.
The best part about stained glass manicures is the customizability. Whether you decide to do a full manicure or choose accent nails like this blue variation here, there are no rules.
@CandyNailBar got it right on the money with this manicure. It instantly reminds us of the beautiful designs we spot on the windows of churches worldwide.
Instead of going the traditional route, make your stained glass manicure an ombré and choose whatever hues your heart desires. Try doing two accent nails like this version, or ombré your full set for a playful look.
What do you do when you can’t decide on a color or specific design for your stained glass manicure? You just go with all of them, of course. Outline your shapes in a black nail polish and then use a very thin and pointed manicure brush to paint inside the shapes.
Everything's better with a little glitter and shine, especially stained glass nails. We’re obsessed with @nessasnails9 design for the captivating glitter shades used to make the mani appear reflective and bright. Don’t be afraid to take the look up a notch by adding rhinestones.
If you’re an acrylic fan, don’t worry. You can still rock a stained glass manicure with your long claws. If anything, all it means is that there is more surface area on which to add stunning shapes and designs.
