Glass Nails?? They sound more dangerous than your average stiletto. Luckily they're not actually made of glass.  Glass nails or Jelly nails are made with a translucent coloured gel called Glaze Gel by Bluesky. 

Glaze Gel by Bluesky

Glaze Gel comes in 8 colours and it applies just like any other Bluesky Gel Polish. 

1. Clean and prepare your nails and cuticles.

2. Apply a thin layer of Bluesky base coat. Cure for 60 seconds in an LED lamp.

3. Paint on 1 or two layers of Glaze gel. This gel is designed to be see-through, so the more layers you add, the more opaque it will get. Usually, 1 coat is enough. Cure for 60 seconds in an LED lamp.

4. Apply a layer of Bluesky No Wipe Topcoat and cure for 60 seconds in an LED lamp.

Applying thin layers of the glaze gel gives you a cool stained glass look over your nails.

These colours look great on their own and will definitely have some heads turning to see what you're wearing, but there are many other things you can do with your Glaze Gel to take your manicure to the next level.

French Ombre

Carina @House of Nails used Glaze gel as an accent on an already beautiful design. By dragging the coloured gel up towards the cuticle, Carina created a subtle French Ombre.


Lava Lamps

Angie Curley @Kitynn's Nail Studio created this amazing set of mini Lava Lamps! By using the glaze gel for the clear sections it gives the illusion that the nails are actually glowing. 

Rainbow Ombre

This was a very popular design for Tina @la boite de beauté.  When you can't pick a colour, just have them all. By laying down a different colour on each half of the nail, Tina was able to do a vertical blend. Using the same colour on different nails side by side makes this design flow just like a rainbow. 

The fun doesn't end there, you can do smoke, marble, add fruit, glitter or foils... It's literally never-ending. You can get your own Glaze Gel here on our website and show us what you create by tagging us on your socials! @gelnailsuk.
