Heidi Klum's 'milk bath' nails look so chic and are the perfect, elevated nail look for every day.

Right now, subtle and minimalistic nail looks are very on-trend from shiny 'lip gloss' nails to sleek white nail designs but none more so than the 'milk' nail trend. As the name would suggest, this particular manicure features a creamy polish applied to the nail, for a soft and well...milky effect that is perfectly subtle and infinitely chic. 

The trend is the epitome of an 'expensive looking' nail look and now, model Heidi Klum has just provided the ultimate inspiration for both rocking and elevating it.

This Bubble Bath shade is the perfect milky pink, it's subtle, soft and lovely for every day - and a close match to Heidi's nail colour.

Milky nails are very minimal and low-maintenance, as they consist of just one block colour - meaning they're very easy to recreate at home. Shade-wise, you can opt for either a soft white or cream, a pastel pink or a beige depending on your preference, we'd also recommend starting with one of the best nail strengtheners to ensure your manicure lasts.

As Heidi proves the colour looks elegant and chic on every nail shape, with the model herself opting for mid-length, square nails, which are proving to be a big autumn nail trend in themselves - along with 'squoval nails.'

Taking to Instagram, celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik shared Heidi's new manicure, giving us an up-close glimpse of her sophisticated look.

From what we can tell, Heidi's nails have been created using a creamy, light pink shade like that of O.P.I's Bubble Bath nail lacquer. To recreate her look, shape your nails to a similar square style and then apply your nail strengthener, followed by two to three layers of your chosen nail polish shade. Then, for added shine and to protect your nails from chipping, finish with a clear top coat.
