You’ve heard of chrome nails and glazed donut nails, and now, there’s another nail trend with an interesting name hitting the beauty scene. Do you know anything about soap nails?

I know the name sounds odd, but these nails are actually taking over the beauty world and are perfect for anyone who loves a good minimalist, ‘clean girl’ aesthetic.

If you look up pictures of soap nails online, you may roll your eyes and think, “Aren’t these just considered nude or natural nails?”

While soap nails use neutral colors, there are a few things that separate them from the typical natural or nude nail look.

When you think of things being soapy, what do you see? When something is soapy, it tends to have a sleek, glossy look to it. That’s one of the beautiful parts of soapy nails.

To achieve this look, you need a neutral nail polish. The color should be whatever is considered a nude shade for your skin tone.

You also want this shade to be a bit sheer to remind you of the glossy translucent look of soap and bubbles.

You’ll also want to make sure you or your nail tech uses the glossiest top coat you can find if you’re getting these nails done at the salon. Ask the nail tech if they can find you the glossiest top coat they have in stock.

One of the most common ways to wear soap nails is to keep your nails short, clean, and rounded.
