Korea has always been ahead of the game when it comes to beauty. From groundbreaking products to skincare treatments we never thought possible, chances are they do it first. In a world where Instagram is the hub of the unexpected, it was only a matter of time before a brand-new Korean nail trend made it onto our feeds.
This past weekend, the creative director of Paintbox, Julie Kandalec, spotted press-on nails in Korea that resembled mirrored sunglasses. Vibrant hues of blue, purple and gold all present on a single nail. We can already picture the countless tutorials and DIYs that will ensue as a result of this discovery, but in the meantime, here are some polishes that allow you to pull off the look now.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you, this is going to be a big one.
