The Best Way to Get the Milky Nail Appearance at Home

How To Get The Milky Nail Look At Home 

Milky nails, also known as "glass nails," are a popular nail trend that involves creating a translucent, milky white look on the nails. This can be achieved by using a special type of nail polish or gel that is formulated to give the nails a translucent, glass-like appearance. Some people also achieve the milky nail look by layering regular nail polish or applying a white base coat before applying a clear top coat. The result is a delicate, ethereal look that is both stylish and subtle. Milky nails are often paired with other nail art designs or worn on their own as a simple, understated look.

To create the "glass nails" look at home, you will need the following items:

  1. A nail file and buffer
  2. A base coat nail polish
  3. A milky white nail polish or gel polish
  4. A top coat nail polish

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to create the look:

  1. Begin by filing and buffing your nails to your desired shape.
  2. Next, apply a base coat to your nails to help the milky polish adhere better and prevent your natural nails from staining.
  3. Once the base coat has dried, apply a thin layer of the milky white polish or gel polish to your nails. Be sure to apply it evenly, as any streaks or brush strokes will be visible once the polish dries.
  4. Allow the milky polish to dry completely. Depending on the polish you are using, this may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
  5. Once the milky polish is completely dry, apply a top coat to seal in the color and give your nails a glossy finish.
  6. Allow the top coat to dry completely before using your hands, and you're all set!
