How to make pink jelly nail polish
Making your own jelly nail polish is quick, easy and so satisfying!
All you need is a bottle of your favorite pink nail polish and a bottle of clear nail polish.
Pro tip – It helps if your colored and clear polishes are from the same brand.
How it works:
You can turn any pink nail polish into a jelly look polish by adding a few drops of the pink to a bottle of clear nail polish.
You only need a small amount of pink, like 2 to 3 drops or one dip with the brush into the polish bottle.
Tips for making pink gel nail polish:
There are 2 ways to add your pink nail polish to the clear.
You can either hold the brush loaded with the pink color over the neck of the open bottle of clear and drop it in.
Or you can paint a little of the pink onto the brush from the clear polish.
Then dunk the clear brush (which now has some pink on it) back into the clear bottle ready for mixing.
You’ll need to mix it up well to get a good result.
Now, you’ll see plenty of videos where they shake up the bottle to mix in the color.
DON’T do that!!!!
If you shake the bottle you’ll get tons of bubbles in your polish.
Instead, what you want to do is to use the brush to mix it up as best as you can.
Then gently roll the bottle around until you’re happy that it’s mixed in well.
If you think the color is too light, you can always add in more pink.
Korean Jelly nail polish
Korean jelly nail polish is a type of very sheer nail polish that is widely sold and used in Korea.
It is also sometimes called syrup gel polish.
This type of nail polish quickly became popular outside of Korea, but nail makers took some time to catch up with this trend.
So people started to make their own jelly nail polishes by mixing together nail polish colors with clear nail polish.
If you want to try out the trend, you can actually buy it now, here in the US.
Or you can follow the simple instructions above and make your own jelly nail polish.
Jelly nail polish brands
If you don’t want to make your own jelly polish, don’t worry.
There are plenty of ready-made beautiful jelly polishes you can buy.
Here are the best jelly nail polishes on the market:
Thegel syrup gel (korean brand)
Transparent jelly nail polish
All jelly nail polishes have some transparency to them.
But transparent jelly nail polishes are the sheerest.
They are very see-through, so if your natural nails aren’t in the best condition, you may want to avoid the super sheer jelly polishes and choose one with a bit more color added.
You may need to do 2 or 3 coats with a transparent jelly nail polish.
If you are looking to encapsulate something into your jelly nails (like a glitter layer, decals, or gems) then a transparent jelly polish is going to show off what’s underneath better.
So, if you’re looking for a fun and trendy way to switch up your nail game this summer, jelly nails are the way to go!
You can buy them pre-made, or make your own with just a few simple steps.
With so many colors and brands to choose from, it’s easy to find the perfect shade of pink jelly polish.
I hope that you found this post useful.
