Trending: white nails

White nail polish is a tricky one. It can be really great if you find a good quality, thick but not too gloopy polish, but it can be awful too, especially if you have a thin polish that needs lots of applications as it can leave your nails double the thickness, it won't dry properly or it'll go horribly streaky on application.

I've noticed a lot of bloggers and Youtubers rocking white nails recently, some matte, some shiny but all looking great, so that's what has inspired this post and led me to rocking a white nail recently.

There's lots you can do with a white nail. You could leave it plain as it's a pretty eye-catching look or you could work a bit of nail art in or use a different colour or even a glitter top coat on an accent nail. I went for plain white with the Barry M Gelly polish. It is a touch on the thick side so I'd recommend wiping away a lot of excess and building two or three layers. Luckily, it's not too thin so it dries quite nicely, however I did manage to take a chunk out of one of the nails when I hit it against something, oops.

If you can get a good finish then white nails are a pretty bold statement, I certainly like the way it looks when I'm tap, tap, tapping away on my laptop. It makes my nails feel somewhat more elegant and feminine if that's possible.

What do you think of white nails? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. I really love the white nail trend but I agree it's not the easiest trend to pull off! I think they look great with a tan and in winter too - I also love the Gelly polishes from Barry M - have you used the Coconut shade? I purchased Essie's Blanc last summer when the trend seemed to emerge, but it takes a few coats to get an opaque finish with it :) x

  6. I'm not a fan of white nails on their own but I have tried several white nail varnishes because I often use it as a base for nail art. I'm quite good at painting my nails but I always struggle with white, it's so difficult to keep it neat! x
