Once upon a time, translucent sparkly shoes in an array of neon colors reigned supreme. And while you’ve (hopefully) outgrown your trusted Jellies by now, the internet’s latest nail trend is basically the grown woman’s version of the ’90s fashion staple and it’s every bit as bright.
Enter: jelly nails. They’re sheer neon acrylics that showcase your natural nail underneath and are blowing up on Instagram right now.
In eye-catching shades like neon green, yellow and even Barbie pink sparkles, jelly nails are a fun way to get a little “extra” this summer. But beware, the translucent quality of the trend means you need to keep those puppies clean or risk reliving your childhood I-just-painted-my-nails-with-marker-at-recess days.
One thing’s for sure: It’s peanut butter jelly time.
