Jelly Nails Are The Latest ’90s Trend
Laura Lee - August 5, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Any ‘90s kid will surely remember those see-through blow up couches and jelly sandals that stole all of our hearts and parents wallets back in the day. Well, now the nostalgia can be made a reality on your nails.

Jelly nails are a neon and clear design that have been dominating on social media lately. The designs are clear on the tips and show the entire nail underneath.  The trend comes in all different colors and sizes, making it suitable for anyone and everyone to get in on it, and anything you choose will surely get you tons and tons of Instagram loving.

If your local salon hasn’t yet picked up on the trend yet, you can just do it yourself by ordering clear fake nails online and then paint the tips of them in any color you want. There are no shortage of ways to nail the trend (yes, pun intended).

The trend first came about when Kylie Jenner and her friends posted a selfie of their epic nails on Instagram.
