Best Matcha Latte Nail Design

Matcha latte isn't just a fashionable drink. It's also a popular nail art trend. What's the best way to get the matcha aesthetic on your nails? With designs featuring earthy hues and creamy greens, of course! Keep reading for tips on how to create the best matcha latte nail design for your next manicure.

Choose the Best Matcha Latte Colors

When choosing the best matcha latte colors, think about your skin tone. If you have a warm-toned complexion, opt for a true green color or one with yellow undertones. Or, if you are cool-toned, a green shade with a bluish hue may be more flattering.

If you’re not sure, start with the obvious choice. Kiara Sky has a Matcha Latte shade that coordinates perfectly with the drink of the same name. If you prefer something a little softer and more sophisticated, try LDS Green Chantilly. It’s available as gel polish or non-toxic nail lacquer.

Design Inspiration for Matcha Latte Nails

You can take almost any nail design and incorporate the matcha theme. The good news is that matcha nails look stylish with any length or shape. There’s also lots of flexibility regarding the finish. High gloss brings out the rich color of a milky green shade. Nevertheless, a matte finish adds a touch of elegance and is just as durable.

Moreover, you can have a lot of fun adding latte art with a nail stamp or stickers. Get even more ideas from this collection of the best matcha latte nail designs below.

Steaming Matcha Tea Nails

Don't you love watching the swirl of steam rising from your cup of green tea? Now you can create the same effect on your nails.

What’s more, reflective opal polish will make it even more dazzling! This gel has a different look depending on the type of light. It's easy to use, even for beginners.

You'll need a few tools if you've never done a gel manicure. Besides base and top coats, you’ll want a nail lamp to cure or dry all the polish. It may seem like a big investment at first, but you'll be hooked once you experience how easy it is to do a gel manicure and see how long it stays gorgeous.

Gel polish makes it possible to do all sorts of nail art. For this look, brush on and cure the base coat and at least one coat of shimmery green polish. Then use a thin nail art brush to add the white vapor swirls. Finish up with a glossy top coat.

The great thing about gel polish is that it doesn't disturb or dissolve the layers underneath. You have as much time as you need to work with it because it won't dry until you cure it. If you're unhappy with the design, wipe it off and try again. There's no need to pull out the acetone until you're ready to remove the polish altogether.

Waves of Matcha and Cream

Matcha Nail Care
