I love white nails during all 4 seasons! They’re most popular in the summer, but a good winter white, soft white in the spring, or even bold white in the fall is always a classic in my book.
White nails not only look super clean, but they make your skin look more luscious and tan.

Base + Top Coats: Matte or Shiny?
Whether you’re using gel or regular nail polish, a base coat and top coat are both really important. They’ll determine not only how long your manicure lasts, but how shiny it is.
Some of the photos below showcase shiny nails while others are matte. Regardless, I’ve linked one gel color and one regular color for each. I recommend that you purchase a specific type of top coat depending on the level of shine that you’re looking for.
- Gel Base
- Regular Base
- Gel Top Coat: Shiny
- Regular Top Coat: Shiny
- Gel Top Coat: Matte
- Regular Top Coat: Matte
As far as gel polish, I really like Gellish: I find that it lasts way longer than other polish brands.

White Stick On Nails:
I love stick on nails. While I tend to get dip manicures lately because they protect my nails and help them grow, I still have a variety of stick on nail designs in my drawer.
I find that stick on nails work especially well when you want a cool design. You don’t have to worry about the still level of your technician; you can literally just stick them on your fingers and go.
