Sometimes, beauty trends take inspiration from the most unexpected things, so are we surprised to see that one of the biggest projected nail-art trends this spring is taking cues from a frozen object?

They take after chrome nails, except they have more of a jelly finish. "This look is heavy on the chrome and with multiple layers of gel so that the nail resembles an iced look that is super shiny," Kandalec told POPSUGAR.
