Jelly Nails Are The Latest ’90s Trend

Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

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.
