We all know and love the color of strawberry milk but make way for blueberry milk to be the perfect color for your nails this season. Championed by the likes of trendsetters from Sofia Richie Grainge to Dua Lipa, the new nail craze is slowly taking over our Instagram and TikTok feeds. Blueberry milk nails are exactly what they sound like: a subtle, baby blue nail polish shade that has a bit of a creamy, milky vibe.
On TikTok, the #blueberrymilknails hashtag has reached over 10 million views and Google searches for the trend have seen a 294% increase over the past month. Celebrity endorsements are furthering the hype, with Zendaya sitting front row at a fashion show sporting the polish at Louis Vuitton’s latest spectacle in Paris.
Part of the blueberry milk nails trend popularity is likely due to it being chic yet colorful, and flattering to all skin tones. It’s easy to choose the right baby blue shade to match your skin tone, meaning it will look good on everyone who tries it.
While you can always head to your nearest nail salon to get the look, it’s surprisingly simple to accomplish the trend all on your own. Start off with a simple nude or milky white polish as a base, then paint a layer of light blue on top. Be careful not to layer on the blue too thick, the goal is to have the creamy base peak through. As an alternative method, you can also mix your milky and blue shades together before applying to your nails. Once you’re finished, make sure to post your own selfie á la Sabrina Carpenter to show off your new nails.
