What are lipgloss nails?

We like to think of lipgloss nails as the grown-up version of glazed donut nails, and the clue really is in the name. Just as lipgloss adds a high-shine finish to your lips, this manicure makes your nails look super shiny and healthy.

If you're looking for a more natural, sophisticated nail trend to try out this summer, then this is definitely the one for you. All you need is a sheer pink or milky white colour with a slight shine to it, and you can also add a a high-shine top coat for even more impact.

The best bit about this manicure is that it is so easy to do, so you won't be spending hours of your summer in the salon trying to recreate intricate nail art or brightly-coloured designs.
