Ever since Kylie Jenner posted a snap of her manicure to Instagram, jelly nails have gotten on everyone’s radar as THE nail trend of the season. And although jelly nails are nothing new and have been around for quite some time (back then they were known as glass nails), it was only after everyone’s favorite reality star and entrepreneur posted a picture of her long, neon-pink talons that jelly nails became an instant craze all over social media. In fact, there have been more than 6000 #jellynails posts and 62,000+ #glassnails hashtags in just a couple of weeks since Jenner was “feeling girly.” Mind-blowing, right?
Surely you are intrigued by all the jelly nails that have been flooding your Instagram feed, and you don’t want to feel left behind. After all, who wouldn’t want to have beautiful nails? Jelly nails have not only taken Instagram by storm; they have also won over our hearts. The thing about nail art is that it can be both elaborate and loud or muted and minimal! If you want to add some color to your nails, but are sick of the traditional nail art, then you should definitely go for jelly nails!
Just like creams, mattes, and opalescent, jelly refers to the texture of the formula once it is applied on your nails. The unique thing about jelly nails is that they offer a splash of sheer color and a lot of shine.
Today, you are in for a treat, as we have here for you some awesome ideas for your next trip to the nail salon (or to your own little corner at home!). Never have FOMO again and go give jelly nails a try!
