Try Chic Bubble Bath Nails For A Sophisticated Manicure

Ready for a new nail trend in your life? A fan of minimalist, simple manicures? Love neutral shades on your nails? Well, if you answered yes to all those questions, boy, do we have the manicure for you; It's called bubble bath nails, and it's the simple yet super chic look you've probably seen all over your social media.

So, what in the world are bubble bath nails? Well, this look is all about simplicity and being understated, providing a chic light pink manicure that gives off a milky appearance and is usually also ever so slightly see-through. Think lighter than a Barbie pink but more neutral than a blush pink, with a slightly cloudy finish. "It's like a strawberry milkshake," celebrity manicurist Julie Kandalec explained to PopSugar.

And the feminine style has a number of big benefits, too! Bubble bath nails are very neutral so they go with almost any outfit, plus they're super easy to achieve even at home doing your own nails. They can work on all nail shapes, nail lengths, and skin tones. But if that's not enough to convince you, wait until you learn even more about this popular nail look.

A builder gel is one of the easiest ways to get the look

Love a gel mani? Then you're in luck because applying a simple builder gel to your nails is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get a bubble bath look that will last. This is also a great option for those who want opaque nails rather than going for a more translucent version. As Julie Kandalec told PopSugar, "It's full-coverage baby pink builder gel." By using a builder gel instead of standard nail polish, you'll be able to create extra thickness and length on the nails, while also keeping them strong.

But there are still ways to make it fun if simple nails aren't your thing

Feel like the bubble bath nail trend is just a little too simplistic for you? Never fear, because there are ways to dress it up a little without losing the essence of the look. One way you can add a little extra something is to add a rhinestone to at least one nail like this for a touch of glamor. The length of your nails will also change up the finished product. Super long nails will add a little extra pizzazz, whereas shorter nails will give your manicure a more practical edge.

Bubble bath nails epitomize the quiet luxury aesthetic

Heard about the quiet luxury aesthetic? Well, bubble bath nails are all about that life. The simplistic yet oh-so-chic manicure is what the vibe is all about, as it revolves around the 'your nails but better' concept. Aka, a natural effect that plays on your natural beauty. And asking for this at your next mani appointment (or getting the look yourself at home) is going to put you bang on trend. "More and more people want to achieve this 'perfect' hand and nail look — and much like skin, have a desire for healthy, glowy nails," nail technician Metta Francis explained to Harper's Bazaar.
