While hair and makeup trends receive more attention in the beauty department, nails too have been fighting hard to stand out. Well, thanks to divas like Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Dua Lipa and Rihanna, nail trends have gained a whole lot of respect! 

2019 saw a wave of nail trends. From tortoise shell and shadow to gradient and pastel nails, this year was a delight for manicure maniacs. And, we are truly expecting 2020 to be even bigger on trends!

But even before the new year begins, here’s a nail trend that is already creating a storm. We are talking about milky nails!


What are milky nails?

What are milky nails?

As the name suggests, milky nails depict a tall glass of milk. They are a combination of semi-opaque and sheer nails in a shade of white or off-white.

If you want to get milky nails done by a professional, then it’s best to create them on acrylic nails. This way, your manicure is sure to make a classy statement. However, if you don’t want to splurge, then simply DIY milky nails by investing in a white polish such as the Elle 18 Nail Pops Nail Polish - 39. Seal it in with a gel topcoat, and voila!

The best part about this all-new nail trend is that it requires no expertise, unlike other intricate nail art such as negative space and butterfly nails. And that’s not all! Darker nail polishes tend to stain your nails. But with a white polish, you won’t have to deal with stained nails. Also, a milky manicure can look equally chic on short nails.

If you are a manicure minimalist, then you’re going to love this nail trend!
