We like to think we do a pretty good job of predicting the nail trends for each season. Of course, by that, we mean that we are obsessed with Fashion Week and have a keen eye for the prettiest nails on the catwalk.
There is one nail trend, however, that escaped us entirely. “Sea glass nails” are suddenly all over Instagram and fashion sites are calling them the “nail trend of fall”.
The nails are translucent, like the rounded pieces of glasses you find washed up on the beach. The look is achieved using clear matte polish and the result is gorgeous.
Jessica Washick is reportedly the artist who launched the trend on Instagram. Talking with Refinery29, she said: “I was reminiscing about how fun the jelly-nail craze was [and] I wondered how that aesthetic could translate into the colder months, and the vision of opaque sea glass came to mind.”
You can mix up the look by switching up your colors and if you’re feeling adventurous, a touch of sparkle adds a little something extra to the look.
