The Milky Nail Trend has been popular this year, from the classic white, to variations like Strawberry Milk Nails (using a pink color). Pink has been an especially popular color lately (with the Barbiecore aesthetic still going strong and the film to be released soon). Celebrity nail artist Brittany Boyce describes this trend as having the same creamy feel of regular milk bath nails -- just with a pink tint to them. A look like this is popular because it is extremely low maintenance and simple to achieve. Anyone can get the look! 

How To Get The Look At Home:

Prep:

1. Use a file to shape the tip of the nail to your desired look. 

2. Use a buffer to gently buff the surface of the nail (this will help the polish adhere better)

3. Use an orangewood stick to gently push back the cuticles and remove any excess dead skin. 

4. Take a cleanser and a lint-free pad and clean the nail plate, eliminating any excess debris left behind.

 

Application:

1. Start with a base coat. This not only helps protect the nail, but also helps your manicure last longer. Allow to dry completely. 

2. Apply 1-2 coats of your desired polish. The key here is to use a light pink color with a sheer finish, which will create that "milky" effect. Check out some recommendations below!

3. Seal in the color with a top coat. Be sure to cap the edges to help the polish last! 


How To Get At The Salon:

It's always a great idea to bring in reference photos if you opt to get this look at the salon. If you need some inspo, don't worry! We've got you covered! Take a look at these looks you can try!

 


 

A color like OPI I Meta My Soulmate ties in both the Milky Nail Trend AND the popular Glazed Donut Nail Trend. This shimmery shade is great for spring or summer and will pair well with any look.

Bella (@nailsxbellaluna) created this super chic look using DND's Tea Time on top of apres Gel-X Extensions (in XS Round). She topped it off with some gold chrome to create this modern French manicure style.

A little embellishment goes a long way! We love this design by @craftedbyaprince. You can either do a whole manicure like this or create an accent nail. Either way, this look is simple to achieve, yet makes it look like you put in a lot of time and effort. You can recreate the look with the following:

Think of those milk baths with the flowers. You can recreate that aesthetic on your nails! @simple_naildesigns uses Londontown "Princess Awaits" and some floral nail stickers to create this cute mani design.
