Go Short and Chic
Emmy Rossum wore white polish on short, square tips. Since white nails make a statement, this is a great option to downplay the color's boldness.
Try A Trendy Shape
If you want to go a little edgier, choose a long almond nail shape, like Naya Rivera's.
Play It Up With Subtle Nail Art
Zoe Saldana wore one of our favorite subtle nail art designs at the Independent Spirit Awards - the picture frame. The subtle addition of black around the edge of the nail really made the white pop. And luckily, the design isn't as hard as it looks (check out this picture frame nail art how-to from our sister site, Beauty High).
Whites To Wear Now
Models at Rag & Bone wore Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Spirit ($5.99, drugstore.com), an opaque, bright white.
China Glaze Avant Garden in Dandy Lyin' Around ($7), part of the brand's spring collection, has very soft shimmer for a playful take on the hue.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Clear'd for Takeoff ($7, sallyhansen.com) is a versatile white that's semi-sheer at one coat, or can be applied with multiple coats for a bolder look.
