Milky Nail Art Is The Ivory Manicure For Your Pure Soul

Listen up, nail art lovers! White nails are trending this season, particularly milky-white nails.

The milky nail art trend is partly inspired by Truth Hurts singer Lizzo. This Grammys, Lizzo was spotted with ivory nails, decorated with diamond motifs. The star isn’t afraid to stand out on the red carpet with the perfectly adorned milky nails.

It’s the gorgeous midpoint between a completely matte wash of colour and a sheer layer of white polish. It’s ghostly, it’s a little bit sheet, but mostly, it makes for pretty admirable nail art, like watered-down milk, in the most alluring way.

These nails can be created with either acrylic or polish, depending on your nail artist. The sheer whiteness is usually secured with a gel topcoat, which has to sit under a UV lamp while it dries.

It’s a lovely way to make sure you can accessorize your hand without letting your manicure outshine your Kira-Kira worthy jewellery. Here are a few #milkynails art inspo for this week.
