What are blueberry milk nails?

As the name suggests, this manicure is a slightly more colourful take on the milky nail trend. The colour still has that creamy, milky look to it, but this time in a baby blue hue that is perfect for summer.

We are big fans of this look as it's a great way of incorporating a subtle hint of colour into your manicure, while still keeping things soft and stylish. Just check out some of our favourite chic blueberry milk manis below.

Even Dua Lipa is a fan.

How to recreate the look

To recreate the look at home, you will need to start off with a layer of creamy nude nail polish. If you're unsure on what to go for, check out our guide to milky nails.

Once that has dried, apply a baby blue polish over the top. The combination of cream and blue will create the perfect 'blueberry milk' look that everyone is wearing. Keep on scrolling for the best baby blue nail polishes to shop now.
