It’s safe to say that we’ve seen all of the nail trends possible, throughout the years. However, these two newbies, cannot be beat, let me tell you why!

First of all, I'm such a SUCKER for anything 90’s (screaming this right now, take us back!) Let’s take a minute to appreciate this decade…and the fashion.

Picture it, mid 90’s what a time to be alive. Do you remember jelly sandals? Oh my gosh, they were THE in thing to have when I was in elementary school. Those plastic sandals, mainly sheer with bright colors and shimmer with glimmer complimented any outfit.

Honestly, the smell of the jelly sandals is super nostalgic itself, so to wear it on our nails completes my adult self with my inner child! Would you believe that our favorite shoes from the 90’s would end being the hottest nail trend of summer 2019? I’ve never given up on them and I would love to wear those shoes all the time. With all of this being said, it’s FINALLY time to have them on my nails now and I couldn’t be any more excited!

In addition to JELLY NAILS, another 90’s theme style is here and trending as we speak. Considering that were still in the flashback of present moment of the 90’s, already rockin’ our jelly sandals our life wouldn’t be complete without one more thing…..A LAVA LAMP. How mesmerizing are those light lamps with the gel like balls floating around?

Bringing us back to 2019, LAVA LAMP INSPIRED NAILS are currently trending, talk about nostalgia. Yes, lava lamps were groovy in the 70’s but gained our hearts ultimately in the 90’s, hanging out on the shelves in our favorite stores.

If you’re wondering how these nails came about… hang tight. We have our favorite celebs to thank, along with Instagram influencers too who inspire these looks and keep us updated. Nothing gets past us, especially on social media where we can get a glimpse at what’s trending and stay in the loop.

Be sure to ask your local nail artists if they have this available or step their game up for us 90s babies…or else! I've added nail salons all throughout the Hudson Valley to get going on 2019's biggest nail trend.
