Trying the Trend: White Nails

So, extremely badly painted nails aside (the camera has made them look worse!)  I thought I'd try the whole white nail trend a try. It's definitely something I haven't dabbled in since the awkward primary school Tipex as nail varnish days.

My weapon of choice was Pseudo Silk Kimono by Deborah Lipman*. It's a matte offering which was a first to me. I've never really used a matte polish before, the application is a bit tricky if I'm honest. You have to work fast and really layer up the product to get a decent finish (yes mine is messy!)

The matte look reminded me a bit too much of tipex nails, so I decided to use a top coat that had a bit of shine to it, and I think that made the varnish a bit more wearable for me.

Overall I think this trend is quite interesting, however, can I pull it off? I don't really think so. I do however think it would look nice with some glittery polish over the top!

What do you think?

You can pick the polish up from LookFantastic here.

  1. I really like the look of this - but agree the white nails trend can be a tricky one! Look forward to seeing it layered up with some glitter :)
