Memorial Day nails: White manicure

See also

Although Memorial Day nail trends often include patriotic nail art and bright summer nail polishes, not everyone prefers a bold nail look. If you’d rather a fairly simple Memorial Day manicure, white nails can be a great choice. A white colored manicure will create a fresh, crisp and clean summer nail look.

When completing an all white manicure there are a couple of important tips to remember. Use thin, even coats of nail polish and allow each coat to dry completely before moving to the next.

It will probably take at least three coats of nail polish to create and even and opaque finished look. If you rush through the process, your manicure may appear streaky and uneven, so take your time.

If you want to add a little extra to your white manicure, you can add a top coat of glitter polish on an accent nail, or apply embellishments like rhinestones or studs in any pattern or design you wish. Finally, remember to seal your nail look in with clear nail polish for a shiny, long-lasting finish.
