  • And they just so happen to be serving us new nail inspiration!

  • Earlier this month, Kylie Jenner posted a colorful picture on Instagram where her gang was showing off their fresh manicures. 

    Kylie's good friend Heather Sanders was noticeably rocking transparent neon pink nails.

  • Since then, the summery look seems to have flooded our Instagram feeds! 

    According to HelloGiggles, the trendy nail design is achieved by applying a clear tip to the nail or sculpting it with a clear, hard gel, and then adding a sheer polish on top.  

  • Although some people keep them clear, it's been popular to add a vibrant color.

  • Many people are also spicing theirs up with glitter or gems. 

  • We might just be willing to give this nail trend a try! 

    I mean it definitely seems more subtle than corkscrew nails or period nails
