We’ve seen strawberry milk foam lipsticks and milk tea-inspired blushes, but quite frankly, we can’t get enough of these “milky” beauty trends. The latest to join the mix is the deliciously named, “blueberry milk” nails – seen on many celebrities and public personalities.
Sophia Richie, who was famed for bringing back old money chic just this Spring, has been spotted wearing the cloudy, baby blue shade that netizens have termed “blueberry milk nails”. Staying true to her personal brand, the newlywed kept her look classy with a white t-shirt dress, casual tote, and a timeless brown leather belt. We’re loving how the nails add a youthful pop of colour to her look.
In a bare-faced selfie, Sabrina Carpenter pairs her creamy “blueberry milk” nails with a white vacation-ready dress and simple gold accessories. If you’ve been a fan of the “coastal granddaughter” style, you’ll know that pastel blue shades are the go-to colour to wear (apart from white), when putting together the perfect beach look.
The unofficial nail colour of the season was also spotted on some of the trend’s early adopters, “it” girls Zendaya, during a Louis Vuitton show, and pop superstar, Dua Lipa in a post on her IG account. The nails went perfectly well with the singer’s stunning blue chrome metallic ensemble, proving that the low-key nail trend holds its own on dressier occasions too.
