Clean

Inspired by off-duty model style, ‘the clean girl’ is stylish yet understated. She’s well-groomed, but not over the top— her makeup is dewy, lips are glossy, brows are fluffy and manicure is fresh. With beauty enthusiasts all over the internet recreating the ‘no-makeup’ makeup, ‘I woke up like this’ look— it didn’t take long for this trend to make its way to nails. Think sheer shades in milky white, baby pink and neutrals with minimal yet impactful nail art and flawless cuticles. Here are 11 such minimalist manicures you can bookmark to get that ‘clean girl’ look:
