When the fashion industry’s favorite rising supermodel, Kaia Gerber, took to Instagram last week to share a mirror selfie with her 4.2 million followers, there’s one detail in particular that drew the attention of everyone – Marc Jacobs included. No, it wasn’t her impeccable Brigitte Bardot-inspired makeup, but rather her crazy cool, see-through nails with emerald green tips that inspired Jacobs’ “Living for those nails!!!” comment.
This translucent manicure trend, often referred to as ‘jelly’, ‘glass’, or ‘PVC’ nails, has been seriously picking up over the past few months, and we’ve clearly (no pun intended) been taking note. Celebrities including Cardi B, Kylie Jenner, and Dua Lipa have been showing off their jelly nails and the different ways in which they dress them up, from crystalizing them to adding intricate designs. We even saw jelly nails make their way down the runway at Moschino’s Fall/Winter show, where celebrity nail artist Miss Pop worked her mani magic with a glittery take on the trend.
Jelly nails can be achieved through gel-sculpted nail extensions or clear acrylics. If you’re ready for this jelly, Savoir Flair tracked down a few of our favorite salons in Dubai which can make all your PVC nail dreams come true. Among those who made the list are SoH, The Nail Spa, The Dollhouse, and The Nail Pavilion. See you at the mani station.
