"Quiet luxury" is on the rise, and if you haven't yet embraced the new aesthetic, it's not too late. The trend started with clothes and moved its way over to hair, and now it's taking over nail looks left and right. The best part? You don't need anything fancy to try it out for yourself; in fact, the simpler, the better.

"Quiet-luxury manicures give a more realistic look to your nails, just without the imperfections of a bare nail," Deborah Lippmann, founder of the eponymous nail brand, tells POPSUGAR. "The idea of this trend is to enhance the look of your natural nail through a sheer polish, a neutral shade, or even a subtle french manicure to achieve the look of being understated yet perfectly put together."

Unlike other maximalist manicure trends of late (think "coquette" nails and "vagina" nails), this one is all about elevating classic hues and basics into something a little more. From the celebrity-loved "milk bath" manicure to the ever-popular "rich girl" nails, there are quite a few nail trends that are perfect for embracing the quiet-luxury aesthetic.

Ahead, we rounded up six looks that are sure to be the cherry on top of your quiet-luxury sundae.
