5 minutes read
White polish is a summer nail look that never goes out of style, probably because they are versatile, elegant, and white nail polish is undoubtedly the perfect base for summer nail designs. And while a classic white nail is a fail-safe choice, there are also different shades and effects that can take your white manicure to the next level. From milky white to chrome finishes, white nail designs offer endless possibilities to express your personal style. Here, we round up the ten must-try white nail designs that will elevate your summer look and are sure to make a statement.
White heart tips
White heart tips add a charming and romantic touch to your nails. To achieve this look, start by applying a sheer white base coat. Then, using a fine nail art brush or a toothpick, create small white hearts on the tips of your nails. You can enhance this design by adding a touch of glitter or tiny rhinestones to the hearts. These white heart tips are perfect for date nights, weddings, or any time you want to spread the love.
Glazed doughnut nails
If you’re looking for a fun and playful nail design, glazed doughnut nails are the perfect choice. Begin by painting your nails with a base coat, then top with a sheer milky white polish. Once dry paint a layer of a subtle sheer iridescent pastel (any shade you like) polish over the top. To finish, add a high shine top coat to mimic the glazed texture of a doughnut.
Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best way to make a statement. Plain white nails are effortlessly chic and go with any outfit, and to switch things up a bit you can experiment with different shades of white – such as ivory or pearl. If you dare – for a little pop of excitement, you could consider adding a single gold or silver accent nail.
Small white daisies
Bring a touch of nature to your nails with small white daisies. Start by applying a milky white base coat, and then using a dotting tool or a toothpick, create delicate daisy petals with a pure white nail polish. Add a yellow dot in the centre of each flower to complete the design. Small white daisies are the perfect design to sport during Spring and summer or any occasion that calls for a fresh and whimsical look.
Embrace your artistic side with abstract white nails. Begin by applying a white base coat, and then use a thin nail art brush to create unique patterns and shapes on each nail. Experiment with geometric lines, dots, or swirls to achieve your abstract masterpiece. You can also incorporate other pastel colours for a vibrant twist, or keep your base coat sheer white and paint your geometric lines using a true white polish.
New-age French tips
Put a modern twist on the classic sophisticated French manicure with new-age French tips. Instead of the traditional neutral pink or nude base, opt for a clean white polish. Then, using a thin striping brush, paint the tips of your nails with a contrasting colour or create a negative space design.
Make a bold statement and showcase your edgy style with checkmate nails. Start by applying a white base coat, and then use black nail polish and a striping brush to create a checkerboard pattern on each nail.
To create this mesmerising look, begin by applying a translucent white polish as a base. Then, using a small sponge or a toothbrush, lightly dab silver or holographic glitter polish onto the nails to create a speckled effect. Finish with a high shine top coat for a glass-like look.
A touch of sparkle
Add some glamour to your white nails with a touch of sparkle. Apply a white base coat and then use a fine nail art brush to create delicate lines or patterns with a silver or gold glitter polish. This design adds a subtle glint to your nails and is perfect for those who like to shimmer and shine.
Transport yourself to cloud nine with this dreamy nail design. Begin by applying a white base coat, and then use a sponge to create a soft gradient effect using light blue and white nail polishes. The sky’s the limit, so finish with a layer of iridescent glitter polish to add a magical touch.
So, whether you prefer a minimalistic vibe or to make a statement, there’s a white nail design for everyone – just make sure that you are using a base coat to protect your natural nail and a top coat seal in your design for extra longevity.
