Minimalism in fashion has hit an all time high, reaching as far as beauty and nails. I absolutely love the sleek trend of a pure white manicure and finally tried my first one! I love it. I went for short nails and a glossy off-white by Essie called Tuck It In My Tux. A creamy-white mani and pedi stands out against tan summer skin, goes with everything in your summer wardrobe, and looks especially great with yellow and rose gold jewelry (and that goes for feet too, I have been wearing my anklet all summer long!). This look is unexpectedly bold, so pay attention to shape and length – a shorter or rounded nail works best and is less likely to chip. Speaking of chipping: streaks, chipping, and stains are far more noticeable on white polish so make sure you grab a bottle for home corrections. Pro tip: between coats, add a layer of matte polish (wait til each layer has dried before adding another) to help seal in the color and make the final coat more opaque. Experiment with different shades of white to find the one that makes your skin glow – I like a warmer cream tone.
