“Cloud” Nails: The Minimalist Manicure Trend You Need to Try

Cloud nails are the latest trend in the world of nail art. This minimalist manicure is taking over social media and red carpets, with many celebrities sporting the whimsical look. The trend is a twist on the milk-bath nail trend and features a milky white shade of polish that is sheer in finish. The look is popular among celebrities because it can be paired with practically any outfit, hairstyle, or makeup look.

The trend is mostly seen with almond and oval shapes, and short to mid-lengths, but it can be customized to suit any nail shape or length. To achieve the look, start by trimming, filing, and buffing your nails to your preferred shape and length. From there, make sure your cuticles are trimmed or pushed back. Whether you’re opting for gel or regular polish, start with a base coat. Our current favorite is the Essie Here to Stay Base Coat. From there, opt for a sheer white or light-pink polish. We’d suggest Essie Marshmallow or Zoya Leia. The key thing is to use no more than two coats and to make sure both layers are thin. Finally, finish everything off with a high-shine, glossy topcoat, like the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Beautifiers High Gloss Top Coat.

If you’re interested in trying out a more literal version of the trend but don’t necessarily possess the skills to do the nail art on your own, we’d suggest testing out a pair of press-on nails that already have a design on them. Our current favorite option is the Rave Nailz Dream Nailz, which feature a purple background and mini white clouds and moons.

Cloud nails are currently trending because they offer a whimsical and dreamy aesthetic that is visually appealing and has a magical vibe. They provide a unique and creative way for individuals to express their personal style and add a touch of fantasy to their manicures.
