Earthy oat, creamy cashew or freshly cut coconut, this season’s nails echo our favourite milks. Suitable for all skin types and dietary requirements  

If you’ve let your nails fall into rack and ruin over the past few months, raise your badly manicured hand. While we can all be forgiven for prioritizing our dehydrated winter skin, there’s no doubt that our nails have also faced the daily wear and tear of the cold temperature. 

Instead of shoving your hands into your coat pockets or hoping that nobody in the office will notice, take a look at our round-up of this season’s milk-inspired polish and give your nails some much needed TLC. 

Whether you’re a full fat dairy drinker or plant-based lover, the Stylist beauty team has found a shade to quench your thirst.
