Okay ladies, let your inner Blair Waldorf shine through with these gorgeous “old money nails” inspo. 💅🏻
In case you’re not familiar with the term, old money nails are all about achieving a classy, elegant, and expensive look but without any flashiness.
We’re talking subtler nude and neutral shades, delicate designs instead of loud colors or graphics, and an overall refined vibe. And, instead of crazy long coffin nails, think short, rounded or square nails.
Basically, the goal is to keep it clean, understated, and slightly sheer/translucent for a posh effect.
Inside this slideshow, you’ll find inspiration ranging from milky whites and glossy finishes to barely-there pinks and subtle pearl accents (very Gossip Girl chic). Feel free to pin your faves for your next mani!
So slide through for the most luxe old money nail realness 😉💋
