The Milky Nail Trends We Can’t Get Enough Of
Nail trends are ever evolving especially as the seasons change. While many choose bright shades for the summer season, we’re seeing a revival of minimalistic trends with the Milky Nails Trend. We’ve seen celebrities all over the world rocking milky nails with varying degrees of glamor and as an update to both the summer-white nail trend and nude colors, milky nail trends are taking over as the must-have nails of the season.
What Are Milky Nails?
Milky Nails are a fun twist on a classic neutral mani trend. They are clean and simple, but can be updated in a variety of fun finishes and details. The trend usually uses an opaque white, creamy nude or subtle blush tone to enhance your nail with a slightly more than sheer finish. The look is generally created by prepping the nail and then applying a few very thin coats of sheer or opaque nail polish, followed by a high-gloss top coat to create a polished finish.
The Top Milky Nail Trends of the Season
Part of the reason why the milky nail trend has become so popular is because of its ability to be customized. Everything from skin tone to nail length and nail design should be taken into account when finding your finished look. From traditional milky nails to their variations, these are some of the top designs for the upcoming season!
The Milky French
Touted by JLO as one of her go-to nail designs, this look uses a subtle French tip to set the nail apart. The trick to getting this look is by adding the French tip first — either in a slightly contrasted tone or the same color polish — and then adding the final coats of opaque polish after. This creates a softer transition and more subtle French tip feel.
Milk Bath Nails
This trend uses a milky base and adds flowers or motifs either below of above the milky finish to create a dreamy design. The traditional versions utilize flowers to make it look like an actual milk bath with floating flowers, while others take the concept and run with it for an ethereal feel.
This look is basically just milky nails but with a crisper white shade. Meant to look like actual clouds, they are slightly more opaque and but still feature the same high-gloss finish.
Why We Love this Look
This trend takes minimal nail art and makes it wearable for almost anyone with the ability to customize tone. Additionally, it can be worn on any nail shape — natural or not — and still be just as fabulous. Add a floral flair or a subtle tip, the choice is ultimately up to you!
