Summer 2023 is witnessing a captivating new trend that has taken the beauty world by storm: popsicle nails!
When the warm weather hits, bright and vibrant nails become a timeless theme. And now, we can’t help but notice the rise of shiny transparent stains adorning fingertips everywhere.
Affectionately known as popsicle nails, they bridge the gap between a sheer wash of polish and a burst of neon, adding just the right amount of playfulness to your everyday look.
But what exactly are popsicle nails? Consider them as summer’s take on lip gloss nails. With their ultra-glossy finish, they resemble the deliciously juicy stains left behind by a popsicle on your lips. This delectable finish perfectly complements sun-kissed summer skin, enhancing its natural radiance.

If you need further evidence of popsicle nails’ popularity, look no further than Selena Gomez. She recently showcased a stunning blood orange shade on her almond-shaped nails, the vibrant colour contrasting beautifully with the backdrop of a pool and swaying palm trees.
So, how can you rock the popsicle nail trend? These nails emulate the sheer and see-through look of ’90s jelly nails, which have amassed over 380 million views on TikTok. However, popsicle nails involve applying thinner coats of polish to avoid the dense texture reminiscent of Jello.
The best part about popsicle nails is that they can be adapted to any nail length. However, intricate ombre styles that resemble a Rocket Lolly are better left in the capable hands of a skilled manicurist.
To achieve the desired transparent finish, consider applying one or two coats of sheer nail polish like the Butter London Jelly Preserve Strengthening Treatment in Strawberry Rhubarb. Alternatively, unleash your creativity by mixing a few drops of vibrant regular nail polish with a clear, high-shine top coat.

For instance, the Manicurist Green Flash Varnish in Coral Reef can be paired with their Top Coat Sunshine to achieve a gel-like sheen. Another winning combination is the Chanel Nail Colour in 147 Incendiare mixed with the Jessica Brilliance High Gloss Top Coat.
Trust us when we say that popsicle nails are the mood-boosting manicure your beauty routine craves. After all, if a flash of fuchsia polish fails to get you excited for summer, then it’s hard to imagine what will!
