White nails have been a major trend all summer, but in true procrastinator form, I just got my first crisp, white mani of the season a few weeks ago...and I loved it! But, of course, in a matter of weeks, people will ditch their alabaster polish for some vampire hues fit for fall. So, before that time comes, we've still got a few glorious weeks of summer to revamp those whites with these three fresh twists. Try them before the cold comes!
Long, oval nails are daring, but they don’t seem as over-the-top when they’re painted in a clean, stark shade. If you’re still feeling chicken (or you can’t get away with talons at work), go for a shorter length with slightly pointy tips.
I love getting my ring fingernails done in a different color than the rest of my nails — it adds an interesting contrast. A chic design looks amazing, too. If you’re DIY-ing, stick a patterned nail applique onto one nail on each hand, then polish the rest in all white.
Gritty, grainy, glittery: Textured polish is having a moment, so why not combine two trends and do a white manicure with an eye-catching finish? Done and done.
