And although the sunny days arouse bright and vibrant colors, sometimes you just need a little cool during the scorching season. If this is the case with you, nothing like betting on the milky trend known as Milky Nails!
Transparent milky nails for whom?
An ancestral trend of nails looking like a milk bath, this manicure can be found on all hands. It goes well with long nails as well as short nails. In terms of shape, she likes them all: stiletto, almond, square, round, oval, etc. But how does it work and can we dare it at home? Unlike Milk Bath Nails, Milk Nails are very easy and quick to do at home. There is therefore no need to go through the institute to be elegant to the tips of the nails.
And just like its flowery heir, the milky manicure is all the rage on social media. The #milkynails is flowing on Instagram and beautistas are crazy about it! If you are therefore looking for a trendy and feasible nail art idea, you have come to the right place! The Milky Nails puts an end to boredom and gives freshness to hot days. You only need a few utensils to make them brilliantly!
How to make your own Milky Nails at home?
Certainly less risky than cutting your hair on your own, the milky-looking manicure only requires a few small utensils that you probably have at home: polish base, white polish, top coat, and nail file. Once your work plan is ready, start by taking care of your hands, a crucial step especially in this period of pandemic when homemade hydroalcoholic gel is an integral part of your daily care.
To fight against dry hands, choose a moisturizing cream that will make your hands fairly soft and satiny. After preparing your skin, take care of the nails by giving them a suitable shape. In our opinion, the milky manicure goes especially well with almond nails.
Once the nails have been cut, cleaned and filed, apply the base, followed by a single thin layer of white varnish. Because the idea of this manicure is to leave it quite translucent. Overloading it with several coats of varnish is therefore out of the question. Finally, finish by applying the shiny top coat. In fact, here you can abuse it as much as you want. So do not hesitate to apply several finishing coats for a most successful milky manicure!
You can also very easily marry your milky manicure with the trend of gold leaves, marbled or shaded nails by making a slight gradient from beige to milky white. Want to get started ? It's up to you to see which variation of Milky Nails you like the most! See you in our photo gallery!
