Just as florals are perfect (if not groundbreaking) for spring, so is a milky nude manicure ideal for everyday wear. The perfect hue to accompany any outfit and ensure you look groomed and professional at all times, the milky nude is a favorite with celebrities for a reason: it’s clean and versatile.
Victoria Beckham just proved she’s a fan of the shade, while enjoying a (casual) night in Miami with designer Tom Ford and footballer Leo Messi. Paired with an all-black ensemble and natural, tousled hair, Beckham’s manicure felt minimal and chic, but still noticeable. Proving the look is as good for daily business as it is for a glitzy night out, she also wore the manicure in a recent Instagram video about her beauty brand’s new Satin Kajal Liner.
Other fans of a classic milky nude include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley — who wears the shade on immaculately shaped nails — Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Naomi Campbell, and Priyanka Chopra. Flattering to all skin tones, it’s like the “no make-up” makeup look of the nail world, and works as well in autumn as it does in summer. It’s a timeless classic.
