Out of the thousands of flavours rolled out to satiate the bubble tea craze, taro milk tea is one of the summer’s hottest drinks. Creamy, mellowly sweet, and a dreamy pastel purple colour, this drink is truly a foodie’s dream come true.
But while we’re obsessed with its flavour, indulging in this beverage on the daily can be rather unpleasant for our health. A beauty lover’s solution? Taro tea nails!
A beautiful, milky lilac — taro-coloured nail polish adds a refreshing touch of mystique and enchantment to your look, and appeals to those who don’t fancy a stark white or bright purple.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the prettiest taro tea nail polishes that you can get your hands on for a taro-fic summer manicure.
