Luscious and luminous, the “Butter Nails” manicure is at the top of our beauty cravings of the moment. And as well as being the hottest trend of the season, it can be done in under 5 minutes! We show you how.

When the sun’s rays return to punctuate our days, it’s only natural that manicure trends also call for color and vitality. And when it comes to springtime inspiration, social networks are never far behind in influencing our beauty whims. And the latest obsession that’s got users in a frenzy is sure to surprise you, as it takes its name from a typically French food that’s a familiar part of our daily breakfast. Here’s how it works.

The “Butter Nails” manicure establishes itself as spring’s big trend

Propelled to the forefront of the beauty scene by TikTok influencers, the manicure has quickly established itself as the star trend of the season. And while it’s not always the shade of choice for sunny days (usually overpowered by white and coral red), the color yellow has made a real comeback in recent months. A veritable chromatic coup, “butter” yellow has recently swept down the catwalks of the fashion houses that count, led by Miu Miu, Givenchy and Prada, boosting models’ silhouettes with a halo of light. From now on, the anti-gray shade will infuse our wardrobes as well as our beauty routines, covering our nails with a lovely vitamin boost.

How to adopt the “Butter Nails” trend?

Many stars are setting the tone for this season’s manicure. The first to succumb is Selena Gomez, the singer with 429 million followers on Instagram. A great trendsetter, the creator of Rare Beauty posted on the Instagram account of her angular prosthetist Tom Bachik , decked out in a pastel yellow manicure with perfect finishing touches. And while pale yellow is de rigueur for the proper execution of the manicure, you can then personalize it however you like. From a simple shiny top coat to a more sophisticated chrome version, there’s no shortage of ways to make it your own.

What’s so special about this soft, timeless color? It adapts to all skin tones and is also said to have positive effects on our mental health. According to chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, yellow has stimulating and revitalizing properties. As the hue closest to that of the sun, it not only improves concentration, but also organization, joie de vivre and self-confidence. Therapeutically, the color yellow is even used to combat glandular diseases, lymphatic system disorders and to strengthen the nervous system. Could we interpret this trend as a way of countering the gloom of previous seasons and subconsciously boosting our dopamine levels? Perhaps!
