With time, our nails can become less shiny and more fragile. However, there’s a solution – jelly nails. This trend looks as if you painted petroleum jelly onto your nails. It’s perfect for covering dry, cracking nails and can make them smooth and hydrated. Find out how to get the look!
What Are Jelly Nails?
The jelly trend became popular in 2018 and is constantly making a comeback. The term ‘jelly’ comes from the translucent, bright color. The lip-gloss-like wash of color makes nails look fresh and youthful. Also, it is more translucent than regular polishes, making them perfect for people who don’t like bold or dark colors. The best part is that you don’t have to spend a fortune on special polishes to achieve the jelly look. You can mix clear nail polish with the colored nail polish of your choice.
A Perfect Choice
The older we get, the more often we notice our nails form ridges and our cuticles need hydration. It makes our hands look dull and dry. Dr. Dana Stern, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Dr. Dana Nail Renewal System says, “The glossy texture of jelly polishes distracts from any age-related hand issues like crepey skin and nail ridges in the nails.”
Pretty in Pink
These are the perfect shade of pink as they are not too bright or too pale either. To get the look, you can apply one coat of a clear base coat first. Then, mix 1-3 drops of pink nail polish into a clear nail polish. Shake well and paint two coats on each nail. Finish with a top coat.
This is a unique spin on the trend. Again, start with one coat of a clear base coat. You can either buy ready-to-use jelly polish or make your own by mixing 1-3 drops of each color into a bottle of clear polish. Paint each nail with two coats and let them dry. Finish with a top coat.
Although it looks hard to achieve, this marble design doesn’t even require tools! Simply start with one coat of a clear base coat. Put two coats of jelly polish, use a lighter jelly polish, and then swipe on in random patterns to create the marble look. Let dry, and then apply another coat of the light color. Finish with a top coat.
Whether you choose a light and dreamy color or a more dark and edgy shade, lavender is always a good idea. To get the look, start with one coat of a clear base coat. Then, paint ½ of each nail vertically with a lavender jelly polish. You can also apply a coat of shimmer jelly polish. Let dry and finish with a top coat.
