Pinterest Picks – White Nails Inspiration

By Monday, February 1, 2016 0 Permalink

For Christmas Dan bought me nail polish, a tricky gift, but this man is smart. He bookmarked my BlackFriday/Cyber Monday post and got me two colors perfect for the holidays, red – Ruby Murray, and white – Cotton Buds. What really surprised me was how excited he was for me to try white nail polish. I’ve wanted to try it ever since I saw it on the Burberry SS2016 runway but worried that it would look too cheap or not pair well with pale skin. Fortunately those fears turned out to be silly, white polish looked both clean and was still striking with my vampiric skin.

Unlike black polish however, white does not go with everything. Sorry! It’s just a little trickier to wear, specifically when it comes to pairing with jewelry. My plan was to pair it with my newest ring which is gun-metal gray with a grayish purple glass stone, but the polish didn’t make the ring pop. In fact the nails muted the ring and kinda dulled the whole look. We want everything to pop!

Gold and silver jewelry looks best, as it doesn’t compete with the white, so they can all share center stage. Clothing wise, white, black, and gray will obviously look best but so will pastels and brights and the occasional jewel tone. Burgundy for example looks great with white nails, as does rich emerald and jade. I’m just learning how to wear my white nails but if you put something on and experience the kind of dullness that I experienced with my gray gun-metal ring, it’s probably not the vibe you want. So as always, play around with it!

The Beautiful Rebel x Forbidden Hearts Lookbook | Wanderlust + Co – This is what I’ll be going for this summer; edgy tank tops, a great pair of aviators, and a hell of a lot of gold jewelry to pair with clean white nails. A tan won’t hurt either, but wear sunscreen or snag that healthy glow with a bit of bronzer.
