Lip Gloss Nails and Milk Nails – Your New Nail Looks for 2024

Lip Gloss Nails and Milk Nails – Your New Nail Looks for 2024 

You’ve heard of gloss for your lips, but have you heard of Lip Gloss Nails?! Crazy, right? However, Lip Gloss Nails have become more popular and are predicted to take 2024 by storm  (Gould).

Lip Gloss Nails 

First of all, what are Lip Gloss Nails? Lip Gloss Nails feature a clear or slightly tinted glossy coat over natural nails, capturing the essence of the ultra-minimalist style that has gone viral on TikTok and Instagram. Lip Gloss Nails have been around since the beginning of 2023 but are really going to take flight this year  (Nesvig and Webb). With celebs like Hailey Bieber, Jennifer Anniston, Selena Gomez, and Victoria Beckham embracing a more natural, “clean girl” nail look, we believe that Lip Gloss Nails are going to be popping up all over the red carpet and magazines (Turner).

Milk Nails

Lip Gloss Nails are like the cool older sister of Milk Nails, a trend that became ultra popular with celebrities and influencers last year, and will continue to pop up during 2024 (Kilikita). Milk Nails, like Lip Gloss Nails, are a natural nail look that offers a gentle and subtle reinterpretation of the '90s Frenchie Nail trend ( Turner). Unlike the stark contrast of the pale pink base and bright white tip in the traditional French manicure, Milk Nails seamlessly blends these two shades  (Kilikita). The result is a beautifully milky manicure that serves as a polished neutral, quietly enhancing any outfit. Similarly, Lip Gloss Nails blend your natural nail color with a clear or slightly pink gloss coat, resulting in a blended, soft, and chic look. Yet, differently than Milk Nails, Lip Gloss Nails embraces your natural nail color more and amplifies it with gloss, instead of adding a milky white topcoat. 

MAKEOVER Smoothing Ridge Filler

To achieve the perfect Lip Gloss Nails, look no further than Dermelect’s MAKEOVER Smoothing Ridge Filler. This clever formulation not only conceals imperfections with a radiant, sheer pink hue but also addresses nail damage through its potent strengthening and nourishing formula. The anti-aging treatment features keratin protein and a unique peptide delivery system, working together to fortify and strengthen weakened nails, making them more resistant to splits and breaks. Pentavitin, a moisture-binding agent, acts as a magnet for dry, brittle nails, enhancing flexibility. Whether worn alone or as a base coat, this innovative product establishes a protective barrier between the nail plate and additional lacquers, ensuring a healthy and vibrant result. 

This award-winning basecoat was recently featured in this month’s Allure Beauty Box! Now, you can witness the magic unfold on Allure's TikTok, where the Makeover Smoothing Ridge Nail Polish takes center stage, showcasing its ability to achieve healthier-looking nails. Don't miss the chance to see this beauty essential in action and elevate your nail care routine. Click here to watch! 

 LUMINOUS Brightener + Perfector

For more gloss and shimmer on your nails, you can add LUMINOUS Brightener + Perfector on top of MAKEOVER Smoothing Ridge Filler for that extra bit of “wow!” This protein-peptide-infused treatment fortifies and nourishes visibly damaged and fragile nails while camouflaging flaws in a captivating, neutral milk-white hue. LUMINOUS effortlessly helps discolored, ridged, yellowed, and stained nails transform into instantly brighter, smoother, elegant, and beautiful nails. Harnessing the power of light-reflecting particles and optical brighteners, LUMINOUS fills, conceals, blurs, and neutralizes any visible nail damage and imperfections.  

The shimmering white exudes cleanliness, simplicity, eye-catching allure, and brightness and is a softer alternative to a stark white polish. So, if you decided to go for a Milk Nail look instead of Lip Gloss Nails, LUMINOUS on its own is perfect for achieving that milky, shiny look. Build up two to three layers of LUMINOUS and you will have those amazing Milk Nails that will shine with any outfit, during any time of year.  

HIGH MAINTENANCE Instant Nail Thickener Top Coat 

In addition, if you want to further amplify the “gloss” in Lip Gloss Nails or add some shine to your Milk Nails, you can pair your basecoats with Dermelect’s HIGH MAINTENANCE Instant Nail Thickener Top Coat. This topcoat is high on shine and long on durability, giving you a long-lasting and beautiful manicure. The advanced formula harnesses the power of protein-peptide technology to add an immediate protective layer of thickness to your nails, prolonging the life of your manicure. Enriched with a unique protein peptide sourced from New Zealand sheep's wool, it enhances the resilience of your nails, reducing the risk of splitting, breaking, and chipping. The fast-drying and super glossy formula also features a UV absorber, safeguarding your polish from yellowing and preventing rapid fading of both light and dark colors. Undoubtedly, one of the most innovative topcoats you'll ever encounter.

Whether it's the chic simplicity of the clear glossy coat or any creative twists you add to this trend, we want to see it.
