Jelly manicures are a type of see-through nail style usually done on artificial tips. We share 10 enticing options to try this trend out.
Also known as glass nails, jelly nail manicures are the nostalgic yet futuristic fad sweeping across social media. 
We spill the tea on what this manicure is all about. If you’re eager to try it yourself, we list 10 chic variations to try. 
Glass Nails 101: What is a Jelly Nail Manicure?
If this is your first intro to the glass nails trend, here are a few FAQ you may have:
How Are Jelly Nails Done?
A clear tip is affixed to your nail in the color of your choice. This tip can range from clear to nearly opaque, although it should be at least somewhat transparent.
As for the design, use your imagination: you’re working with a blank canvas!
Can You Do Jelly Nails on Natural Nails?
Technically, you can—but you won’t get the same impressive effect. The whole “glass” appearance is thanks to the clear acrylic tip. 
How Long Do Jelly Nails Last?
They should last as long as your average acrylic manicure. That means a few weeks before they need touching up, and up to eight weeks before replacements are needed.

Check out #jellynails and you’ll see just how popular this manicure sensation is. If you’re ready to show off your own glass nails, here are 10 ideas to inspire you:
1. Holographic 90’s

Consider a nostalgic 90’s vibe with holographic glass nails. If you feel like taking it to the next level, add a few glitter stripes for a 3D effect.
2. Gold Flakes

If you want luxurious jelly nails, go for the gold. Make your gold glass nails pop by alternating with solid colors. 
3. Candy Colors

These nails in bright candy colors look almost good enough to eat! A subtle glittery shimmer makes this jelly nail style even more attention-grabbing. 
4. Bejeweled Beauty

Dazzling nail adornments are an elegant, glitzy touch to a jelly manicure. You don’t need super-long tips for this design, either. 
5. Chunky Glitter

Transparent glass nails are an excellent base for glittery bits and pieces. Ideally, you should choose thicker glitter so that the cool clear quality is visible. 
6. Spring Flowers

A translucent base decorated with delicate flowers makes for a spring-themed jelly manicure. Pick your favorite foliage in a range of colors and add leafy accents to every other nail. 
7. Butterfly Explosion

Do you adore the butterfly aesthetic? Try realistic butterflies on an ethereal blue glitter background. To glam it up, add a touch of nail jewelry. 
8. Yellow Points

Embrace yellow jelly nails for a look that will get double-takes. Add delicate designs to the pointed glass tips or keep them plain. 
9. Clear Glass

If statement looks aren’t for you, you can opt for subdued glass nails by keeping it clear. Design one or two nails with your favorite stuff (like cute cherries!) to make it unique.
10. Cloudy Marble

Marble works just as well on jelly nails as it does in interior design. Embellish your cloudy marble with discreet accents in earthy tones or a few flecks of glitter.

What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
A Year in review!
A Year in review!
This year has definitely been a wild ride. I’ve learned so much more about my hair and skin in this last year than I ever thought I would or needed to know! All the way from using witch hazel and not paying attention to my curl pattern, to staying completely fragrance free with face products and staying away from harsh toners and paying attention to what my hair was trying to do! Using this app has really opened doors for me that I wouldn’t thought possible for my beauty process! I can’t wait to see what more years bring me, and us! Thank you @cherie!

Dermatologist opinion: caffeine eye cream
THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Why I like the Inkeylist caffeine eye cream: ✔️ Lightweight texture blends very easily ✔️ Hydrating ✔️ Can help reduce puffiness ✔️ Antioxidant ingredients help fight off free radicals from the sun and pollution ✔️ Can help improve the appearance of dark circles ✔️ Fragrance free- no smell to it! ✔️ Affordable ✨ It is one of my favorite go-to eye creams because of the caffeine which really helps with my puffy eyes in the morning and has helped with my dark circles. I also really like that it blends in easily, is fragrance free, and affordable. I like using this once a day in the morning but this can be used twice a day. I like using it in the mornings because it really helps with my puffy eyes (which is worse in the morning for me!). I notice an immediate effect on the puffiness around my eyes. It took a few weeks to notice the improvement on my dark circles. What do you think about this eye cream? Comment below!
Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
Dry Shampoo white residue? Don’t worry I got you
I love a dry shampoo with a lot of powder because it is what is absorbing the oil to make your hair look less greasy. However, sometimes there is a little white powder residue that I can’t seem to rub into my dark hair. Simple solution 💡!! Shine spray! It makes it all blend away!
