Just as we were coming around to bubble nails—just kidding, we'd sooner claw our eyes out with razor-sharp talons—there's a new trend that has the internet double tapping their digits. 

Enter glass nails, which are exquisite 3D and glass-inspired creations born out of Korea—because, obviously. The brainchild of South Korean manicurist and founder of Unistella salon, Eun Kyung Park, she's been sending Instagram into a tizzy with her dazzling designs, from holographic patterns, to Art Deco mosaics, to more streamlined negative space looks. 

While these MoMA-worthy looks are surely at the forefront of a whole new guard of nail art (we foresee RiRi and Kylie Jenner jumping on the bandwagon first), there's no denying that these dainty looks bring a whole new level of panic to our fears of breaking a nail. 

Check out some of the most swoon-worthy glass nail looks below:
