If you like this trend and want to try it yourself at home then I have given step-by-step instructions that you can follow to get this look at home.
How to get white nut nails (DIY)
First, you will need:
- Clear press-on nails
- Nail glue
- Nail File
- Makeup sponge
- Nude nail polish
- White nail polish
- Nail polish remover
- Cotton swab
Step 1: The Basic routine
Clean your hands and cut your nails. Don’t cut too deeply and file the nails smooth so that are no snags in your nails.
Step 2: Wear your clear nail acrylics
After the basic routine of cleaning and filing your nails, you can apply a little nail polish remover to clean your nails so that the clear acrylic nails stick better. Then take the clear acrylic nails and cut them into the required length you desire. Apply nail glue and stick them on your nails. Repeat this step one by one on each of your nails and press your nails thoroughly after applying the clear acrylic nails.
Step 3: Apply your polish
Apply a thin coat of nude nail polish to all your fingernails. If you want the ombre look where the nude color gradually turns to white then you need to apply nude polish to the makeup sponge edge and white polish just below it. Slowly dab this sponge onto your nail away from the cuticle towards your nail tip. This will result in a gradient effect transitioning the nude to white. If you don’t want the ombre look then you can directly paint your nails white and skip the nude polish altogether.
Step 4: Enhance your look
Take the makeup sponge again and apply white polish to it on a clean surface and dab it on your nail tips only. This will make your white nail tips look more bright and opaque. By now, you should have a nude color on the nail cuticle and white at the tips. If you are going for the completely white look then you can apply another coat of white polish only.
Step 5: Clean the edges of your nails
After you apply your polish using the makeup sponge you might find the edges of your nail covered in polish. Once the nail polish completely dries then take a cotton swab, dip it in nail polish remover and remove the excess polish from your nail edge. This will make your manicure look neat and precise.
Step 6: Apply clear nail polish
To make your nails look smooth, shiny and even finish off your manicure with a coat of clear nail polish. This will lock the polish in place and prevent the chipping of your manicure.
With this, you are done with the tutorial. Your nails should look something like this. It is ok if you didn’t get it on the first attempt, you will still have a pretty design.
I hope you enjoyed recreating this look for yourself at the convenience of your home. This is a pretty simple nail design that can be recreated easily and gives off a very refined and elegant look. This look is very flexible and can be worn on different occasions including formal events. You can certainly rock this style in the office and vow to your colleagues at the same time.
White is a dynamic color that looks amazing on its own and can be used as a base for other colors as well. This unassuming color when worn properly can bring out the cool and savvy style of the wearer and does much more than an accessory or bag can do.
So, rock this style on your fingernails and tell me about your experience. Do tell me which style you preferred, or whether you were successful in creating your own version. One thing is for sure nut white nails are here to stay and their adaptability and versatility can certainly lead to more beautiful designs.
