Clear Nails Are The Better Base For Your Neutral Manicures — Get The Trend

If you like neutral nails and keep up with the latest nail trends, you've probably seen plenty of influencers, celebrities, and even your friends rocking clear nails

The trend entails applying false clear nails but not covering them with an opaque lacquer. Instead, 

the tip is left clear to create a completely translucent effect, and everything from nail art to accessories is applied on top.

The clear nail look is one of those that comes and goes, as we first saw it in 2019. "Clear nails are absolutely the story of the season... it's everywhere," Marian Newman,

a nail technician, told Image. "We have a reverse French manicure with long, clear tips and a half-moon on the nail bed." It doesn't matter what color goes with it; it's all about clear nails."

Still not over the Barbiecore summer of 2023 when "Barbie" debuted? Neither do we. Why not continue with Barbie-esque nails?
