Bring This Milky Nail Inspo to Your ManicuristOctober 17, 2022
This creamy white nail trend is proof that a single-colored manicure doesn’t have to be boring. So whether you want to get a full set of milky nails or get experimental (milky French mani, anyone?), you’re sure to find a style that suits you. Ahead, we’ve gathered some of our favorite milky nail inspirations.
Classic Milky Nails
What we love most about milky nails is that they aren’t just regular white. They’re an off-white shade with a beautiful, shiny (almost-creamy) finish. It’s a soft, classic and refreshing twist on your traditionally vibrant white manicure. Achieve a similar finish using Essie Marshmallow.
Milky Meets Marble
Have you seen marble manicures yet? Combine the creamy white finish with mesmerizing swirls for a customized milky manicure that’s absolutely stunning.
Milky French Mani
Spice up your classic French manicure by adding a subtle ombré and a shiny, milk finish. Bonus points if you take a shimmery top coat, like Essie Going Steady, and apply it on top for maximum iridescence. Another one of our favorites is the Essie Expressie FX Iced Out Top Coat.
