Forget Glazed Nails—It’s Time for Lip Gloss Nails

While I’m willing to try pretty much any TikTok beauty trend (think: Glazed Nails or Skin Flooding), my favorites are the ones that are minimal, wearable, and low-maintenance. Luckily, the latest nail trend—Lip Gloss Nails—checks all the boxes.

Lip Gloss Nails are essentially a modern take on neutral nails, just accentuated with a high-shine, glossy finish. Here’s how you can get the look at the salon or the comfort of your home.

Step 1: Prep your nails

The foundation of nail color starts with well-manicured nails. Contrary to other nail trends, this one doesn’t have many rules. Opt for your preferred choice of nail length and shape—you really can’t go wrong.

Step 2: A neutral base

As with most things neutral, choose the most flattering hue for your unique skintone—it may be brown-toned or a pinky, peachy hue.

Step 3: Top it off with high shine

The key is selecting the right, wet-effect top coat, mimicking the look of—you guessed it—lip gloss. Don’t skimp on shine, the more the better to emulate a glossy look—minus the stickiness. Not only will a thick, high-shine top coat complete your look, it’ll also help your mani last longer.

The best part? The newest take on the neutral manicure is timeless, seasonless and, honestly, pretty tough to mess up.
