Shimmery White Mani Inspo Perfect For Any Season

We all have our go-to manicure styles for every occasion. Weddings may call for an elegant French tip, while a beach vacation might see you sporting your favorite neon shade, and you might love to mix some jewel tones in the fall. Sometimes, though, we want to deviate from our go-to designs for something a bit simpler but still classy and eye-catching. Neutral tones are an easy choice for this type of no-nonsense mani, and we're happy to announce that there's a new neutral nail trend for all you classy girls out there: white shimmer nails.

Similar to celestial shimmer nails, white shimmer nails offer an elevated take on a classic manicure. The name speaks for itself, as these nails will typically be painted white with a bit of shimmer and shine. It's a trend that can elevate any type of nail, so we wouldn't be surprised if you've already seen it on some of your friends. If you're in the market for a manicure that can be worn every season and on any occasion, a white shimmer mani just might become your new go-to. 

A holographic glitter is sure to stun

If you want a look that amps up the glitz and glam and is sure to be stunning, get a white shimmer mani with a holographic polish. Though it's sure to be understated at your next evening dinner, you'll love to see it glint in the sunlight during the daytime. 

A gentle shimmer is classy and eye-catching

If you don't consider yourself to be a super sparkly girl, don't worry — there's still a white shimmer mani out there perfect for you. The key is to give it the subtlest hint of shimmer. Opt for a light-reflecting white polish that doesn't boast obvious flecks of glitter, and you'll still feel classy as anything without being too over-the-top. 

Give them a pink hue

If you're a classic girl's girl who's always on the Barbie train, you may love a white shimmer mani that incorporates the slightest hint of pink. A white polish with tiny holographic pink flecks will do the trick, as will a shimmer polish that's ever-so-slightly tinted pink. 

A milky white shimmer nail is a great casual option

Are you a fan of the milky white nail trend? Or do you just need a casual mani option that's wearable for even the chillest of vibes? A milky white shimmer polish may be perfect for you. This polish is often a bit sheer so as not to be as eye-catching as a bright white, while the tiniest hint of shimmer will keep it from looking dull. 

Opt for a rainbow holographic coat

Or, maybe you want a white shimmer mani that's a little bit different from all the rest you're seeing on the streets. When that's the case, opt for a rainbow holographic coat. Your nails will look white and shimmery 24/7, but when they get some sunlight on them, we bet you'll find yourself catching compliments galore. 

Give them bigger flecks of glitter

We get it: Glitz and glam are your middle name, and you're not willing to tone that down for the sake of the trendy white shimmer mani. If this sounds like you, you can still hop on the trend. Just look for white polishes that boast larger flecks of glitter, or add a glittery top coat to a white base. 

Do them as an ombré fade

Have you recently found yourself going for the French fade nails trend? If so, you'll be happy to hear that white shimmer nails can be incorporated into the French fade trend seamlessly. Opt for the fade, and instead of doing a plain white or pink tip color, make it a shimmery one. We especially love this look for more formal occasions, like that wedding you have coming up. 

Give your white shimmer nails a French tip

Another recently-trending take on the classic French manicure is the glazed French manicure, and this is another look we love to see done with white shimmer polish. To get this look, opt for a white French manicure and leave the base of your nail nude; then, paint over your whole nail with a shimmery top coat. 

Make them edgy on stiletto nails

If you want to try out the white shimmer manicure trend but your aesthetic tends to be a bit edgier, we have the perfect solution: Go ahead and get a white shimmer manicure on stiletto-shaped nails. The white shimmer polish will make your overall look slightly gentler, while the sharp stiletto tip will remind everyone not to mess with you. 

Give them a silver accent nail

Fans of the accent nail will be happy to hear that you don't have to sacrifice it for your next white shimmer manicure trend. Personally, we love a gentle shiny white shimmer with an understated silver accent nail. It's only noticeable up close, but you'll probably find yourself looking at it all day long. 

A barely-there shimmer is stunning for everyday wear

If you don't want a ton of shimmer, that's totally okay — just opt for a white polish that reflects light, or top it with a top coat that has tiny light-reflective particles. This is a great way to ease yourself into the trend or take it for a test run without fully committing.
