Bright, White Polish: Looks Like Our Nails Are In A Better Mood
February 11, 2009
Chanel recently sent models down the runway rocking bright white nails. The look fit with the overall black and white motif of the collection, but is a snow white manicure wearable in real life? Perfectly executed white nails are mod, uplifting, and a breath of fresh air after seasons and seasons of painting our digits in brooding, inky shades. If it’s too out there, try these polish picks for easing into the trend, with the most outré first.
For true go-go girl nails with a hint of pearl, layer on two coats of Lippman Collection Rhapsody in White ($15) and prepare for a few double takes.
Feeling timid? For a less stark white, try Nars Nail Polish in Edelweiss ($16). One coat is sheer and daytime-friendly, but multiple coats will yield the opaque look seen on the runways. OPI's Moon Over Mumbai ($5.50) is technically grey, but drys very shimmery and pale.
