Nicola Peltz Beckham proves the white manicure isn't going anywhere

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / February 16 2023

Gifted with nine lives, the white manicure is one of those beauty trends that never truly dies. 

From modest French manicures to the ‘Funny Bunny’ versus ‘Bubble Bath’ feud, a glazed donut addiction and milky nails, the white manicure is an ever-evolving nail trend that just doesn’t stop. 

As for 2023 nail trends? Nicola Peltz Beckham is spearheading the white manicure’s icy era with an opaque, shimmering lacquer of CND Vinylux in ‘All Frothed Up’.

The actress’ nail artist Tom Bachik steered away from a stark white shade for the look, and opted for a glimmering, pearlescent jeweled finish, which complimented the massive rock on Peltz Beckham’s hand. 

Kim Kardashian is fully on the icy white manicure train; the Skims founder channeled the lo-fi angst of the ‘00s, scrunched up her nose, and showed off her square cut take on the trend with a classic peace and pout pose. 

Keen to copy Peltz Beckham’s icy nail look? You could always cop a bottle of CND Vinylux in ‘All Frothed Up’ ($19.95 at Salon Shop).

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
