While bright nail colors are undoubtedly fun, white polish can be just as striking. The Telegraph reported that Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna have all been spotted sporting this trend. Whether in stark alabaster, iridescent pearl or a soft ivory, this look can appear innocent or just plain elegant. The best part about white nails? They go with absolutely everything.
Ready to see the light? First, Marie Claire magazine recommended clipping nails to a shorter length. While a square shape is classic, the magazine noted that a rounded oval edge can make fingers appear longer. Next, apply the Turn Back Time Rejuvenating Base Coat by the Lippman Collection, which can minimize yellow stains or any other flaws and ensure the white polish goes on as brightly as possible.
When selecting a shade, Marie Claire pointed out that it can be helpful to consider your skin tone. While brilliant white really stands out against darker skin tones, paler complexions might want to opt for a polish with a pink undertone or some colored glitter so nails don’t blend right into the skin. The magazine also suggested painting on some nail art, like polkadots or stripes, for a mod look.
After applying a few coats of your chosen hue, brush on the Lippmann Collection’s Umbrella Waterproof Top Coat for strong, shiny, chip-proof nails.
