Summer Manicure - White Nails

I often use white nail polish as the base for my nail art {palm tree manicure, tribal manicure, 4th of July manicure, another 4th of July manicure, holiday snow manicure}. However, every time I apply the white cream polish, I just want to skip the nail art because the polish is just so perfect on its own, especially against a summer tan. Today was the day that I skipped the art and kept my nails clean and white. The nail art I planned on sharing today will have to wait because for now, I’m just so into this super fresh white summer manicure.

Today’s white cream polish is two coats of Julep’s Brigitte. This polish was super easy to work with and went on perfectly in two coats. When working with white polish, it is often streaky, so I recommend letting the first coat dry as much as possible before adding the second coat to prevent bald spots near the cuticle.

    May have to do this. I have naked nails right now and was trying to decide what color was next.

    • Fab Fatale

      white! for sure ;) go for it!

  • Wow, this looks great. I like Butter London Cotton Buds, but it was expensive! It’s good in two coats, but still a wee bit streaky.

      i’m so happy you like it, thanks :) yes, i agree, most whites are so streaky so i hope my tip is able to help someone with the same trouble. i always have the worst trouble with the super light cream polishes. maybe they’re all the same, but the streaks look more visible with a lighter color?

  • I can never get whites to look good. Too chalky on me. I am wondering if I should give this one a try.
