Women are literally wearing tiny, see-through spheres on their nails, filled with everything from glitter to flowers. And just like the souvenir staples that fill gift shop selves, you can shake them for a shimmery, mesmerizing display.

So how does one end up with these magical little orbs on their digits? The dome shapes are created with gel nail polish and bonded to the surface of the nail. Inside the bubbly shapes, you’ll either find water (which is preferred, to avoid cloudiness) or oil (as it gives the embellishments inside more buoyancy).

Here, find all the the most outlandish takes on the look—including cutesy Hello Kitty faces and mystical crystal balls.

First time doing snow globe nails. I did one with water and one with oil. I think the oil allows the glitters to float smoother. I’m happy considering #selftaught #snowglobenails #gelnails

Had to #repost what is this madness? #Snowglobenails ������ Let’s skip past the practicality- I can’t even wear #polish for 10 minutes before its #chipped off! And the question of should a snowglobe be attached to a nail (of course it should!) This #creativity is off the hook. I salute you @astrowifiey! What an #amazing #nailart page #EzRepost @astrowifey with @ezrepostapp ❄️❄️��❄️ So Icey ❄️��❄️❄️ Still got some tweaking to do but I’m getting the hang of it.

After my second visit, I would have to retract my recommendation for Enchanted Siblings… �� Second visit is just disappointed, due to festive season, I was required to pay a deposit to secure my mani and pedi appointment, which I am fine with it, however, even with paying a deposit, my pedi appointment is not secure, this is not fair. My mani wasn’t very well done, no pushing cuticles, the nail polish got on the skin around the nails, uneven coats, the nail artist couldn’t even tell whether the top coat is dried(clearly it wasn’t dry due to the amount she put on my nails, but she insisted that it’s dry until I showed her there’s scratches on it) etc. Overall very disappointed �� #nailaddict #nailart #xmasnails #xmastree #rhinestones #snowflake #pastel #brokenglass #snowglobenails
