Every makeup collection has white nail polish. It is necessary to perform a French manicure, it is used as a background for neon coatings or used to dilute any color and get a pastel tone. Spectacular white drawings can be stamped.
But the white color itself looks great on both long and short nails. It gives the impression of freshness and purity. He makes any skin brighter, and clothes more elegant. But this is not the limit.
What is interesting about white
White nail polish is so versatile that it is used in so many designs. Here are just a few of the operations that are performed with its presence:
- White backing. It is required by all neon varnishes. On a white background, make a mirror rub to get an extraordinary glow. Printing a gradient is also not complete without it. All clear polishes look brighter on a white background.
- Classic jacket and moon manicure are indispensable for a strict dress code.
- Stamping patterns: lace, snowflakes, variouspatterns.
- Drawing an artistic painting, the so-called livery.
This unique color does not exist in nature, the white beam is made up of all the colors of the rainbow. And any shade goes well with it.
When there is doubt about the choice of manicure - the situation will be saved by nail design with white varnish. This option is suitable for any outfit: from a tracksuit to a ball gown. Of course, the more solemn the event, the more interesting the design will be. If a single-color application of soft varnish is suitable for a visit to the office or pool (as a delicate translucent tone of white is called), then for festive events you can afford any complex combinations.
The photo shows one of these works. Although the nails are kept in white, the change in structure and accents on the fingers create richness in this simple color. The versatility of white lacquer is also in the fact that any metal is suitable for it: from gold and platinum to cheap jewelry. He is able to emphasize the nobility of the former and raise the latter to a high level of taste. So, we observe the brilliance of cheap silver-colored broths - charming and not at all defiant. Here's how white works.
Not all colors are suitable for short nails. Common pink, nude, pastel colors visually reduce the length of the fingers. What to do? In such cases, dense coatings are chosen that are able to create a contrast with skin color. For example, rich white varnish. For shorthis nails are applied under the cuticle and emphasize its graceful line. Needless to say, a manicure must be flawless - this is already clear.
The shape of the nails plays an important role. If they expand at least a little towards the free edge, forming a trapezoid, a beautiful manicure will not work. Therefore, the nail plate should be adjusted in such a way as to smooth out this impression as much as possible. It is usually enough to file the corners a little so that the side bolsters become parallel. Interestingly, this cannot be done with long nails. So a short length can be considered an advantage when correcting the shape.
Drawings on a white background
White substrate can serve as a background for various patterns, both contrasting and pastel. The art painting in the “double brushstroke” technique looks great on it.
Very often, nail designs with white polish are made composite: all nails can have a different look. Here it is important to observe the principle "all nails are different, but in the same style." On one or two fingers they make an accent that attracts attention. They can be decorated with rhinestones, stucco, interesting texture.
Stamping is very popular, which looks perfect on a white background. The most intricate patterns do not clutter up the design, but create a luxurious canvas.
In order not to lose purity, it is better to combine one tone with white as a companion. For example, white and lilac are typed on a brush. Patterns made in this way, inflorescences with a gentle overflow will decorate yourhandles.
The opposite method of drawing drawings is also interesting: drawings are printed on the nails with white varnish on a colored background. This method is convenient because you can use a contrasting color as a background without fear of its dominance.
The well-known black and white style involves a combination of black and white. But how much softer it will look if the dark background is barely visible, creating a solid lace of boiled white.
What are white polishes
Any varnishes are evaluated by two parameters: intensity (saturation of tone) and shade. By intensity, they distinguish pale white, which is a little translucent on the nails and does not have strong whiteness, and bright white, very dense. The tint can be bluish, then the varnish has the name "Ultra-white", "Alpine snow" or "Extra french". There is also a pinkish shade of white. In this case, it may be called "Sakura".
Manicure nails with white polish are done on long and short nails. The rule for choosing the right shade is recommended for a small nail plate to give preference to dense tones, and for a long one - soft. For owners of great length, there are interesting designs with several shades of white and different textures.
How to apply polish
To make a beautiful white nail polish finish, you need to follow these rules:
- Shake the bottle well to mix the pigment.
- Squeeze the brush on the neck of the bottle away from you. A drop remains on the brush.
- Put a drop onthe area next to the cuticle and open the brush, pushing it to the cuticle, but not finding it. Stretch the brush to the free edge.
- Sweep the brush to the left of the previous stroke.
- Swipe the brush to the right of the center stroke.
- Seal the butt.
- Repeat the same on the second layer.
The technique of applying dense and soft varnish is different. The first requires setting the brush at an angle of 45 degrees to the nail. The second is applied with a brush, almost lying on the nail, with a movement “through the air”. Then there will be no ugly streaks from the brush.
White nail polish reviews
Many shoppers agree that American polishes are the best. Among whites, Alpine Snow from OPI stands out. The gel polish of this company has the same name. In general, in every line for a jacket there is a dense varnish for a smile. These are such well-known brands as Orly, KINETICS, Vinylux CND.
In the world of gel coatings, there are gel paints. They have a richer pigment than gel polishes. In order to perform a smile with a French manicure or for a substrate, they are often used. Drawing small details with a brush is also better with them.
When choosing a suitable white gel polish for short nails, one should not forget about the density. The higher it is, the harder it is to apply. But for drawings, it is indispensable. Dense varnish dries quickly, and it can not be used for drawing. But it is suitable for stamping. Another thing is gel polish. It will not dry without a nail lamp, you can tweak or change something in the processcoating.
For universal use, it is better to have a dense white nail polish in the collection. It can be applied as a jacket or mixed with colored polish to create a gradient. It looks good on short nails. For works in the gel polish technique, it is sometimes better to purchase gel paint.
