Imagine that you are taking a luxurious bath with a bunch of beautiful flowers. You add milk to the water and relax as much as possible, inspired by the experience of Cleopatra, who was famous for her love for this kind of baths. Now imagine that this amazing atmosphere has migrated to your nails. Sounds interesting, doesn't it?
Well, we are lucky, because these are not just fantasies, but one of the most fashionable manicure trends of this summer, which is taking over Instagram with might and main - milky nails.
How is a milky manicure with flowers done?
In order to make a milky manicure with flowers, acrylic is most often used, since this material does not spread and allows you to securely fix the decor. The whimsical floral print on the nails is real tiny dried flowers and leaves that are fixed on a translucent coating.
The elements are arranged randomly (as if they were actually floating in milk). Then another layer of coating is applied to create the effect of complete immersion, and the flowers are, as it were, "encapsulated" in acrylic. Finally, a clear acrylic layer is applied on top to give the manicure extra shine.
If necessary, during the application of the main layers, the nail can be polished in order to remove all irregularities and leave a uniform surface before applying the top layer.
The key to this manicure lies in achieving an uneven application of colors. So that it looks like they are really immersed in milk, and that some of them stand out more than others, thereby achieving the most realistic look.
How long does it take to make a milk manicure with flowers?
Since these are acrylic nails, the design and application can take up to two hours, depending on the length of the nails and the technique used. Of course, this is not the fastest manicure, but it looks so summery, girly, and stylish that I am ready to ignore the time spent on creating it.
There is also a simpler version of the milky manicure, in which colorful patterns are applied to the nails instead of dried flowers.
What is the length and shape of the nails for a milky manicure with flowers?
This design is quite versatile, and will suit both medium and long nails of all shapes. However, you still should not try to make a milky manicure on too short nails, because you will not have space for imagination and a creative arrangement of dried flowers.
