Sure, white goes with everything, but there’s something really Summertime beachy-chic about white nails right now, and unintentionally 60’s mod, which is why I’m obsessed with them. They also tend to give off a hint of edginess, like rich black nails do, sans the goth feel.
I’ve been searching for inspiration to DIY a new nail art tutorial for a while now, but in all honesty, all I want to wear is white. It just feels so fresh right now and I love looking down and seeing my chalky white nails against any background. And while a single colored manicure clearly doesn’t need instructions, I’ve got a great tip up my sleeve on how to get the perfect white mani. Click through my step-by-step photos with instructions below to find it and learn how.
