There has been a lot of different nail trends this year. Many of which featured bold colors or elaborate designs. The newest nail trend is changing that- Milky Nails. The best way to describe milky nails is the middle point between opaque white and sheer white, which produces a milky translucence. Do you like the milky nail look? #milkynails #milkywhitenails #nailtrend #nails #nailsdone #manicure #nailstyle #nailsofinstagram #nailsalon #style #nailartist #nailtime

Gorgeous, right? We’re loving this new interpretation of the classic white mani.

As you can see, the look features super-glossy white polish in a slightly translucent appearance – pretty much what a glass of milk looks like, but on your nails.

If you’d like to get the look, try a sheer white nail polish like OPI’s Funny Bunny. To give your nails that hyper-glossy finish, cap them off shiny topcoat like Revlon's Ulitimate Shine Top Coat.
