Whether DIY French pedicures or monochromatic nails are your thing, you’re going to invest in a good white nail polish. White nails or tips pop against sun-kissed skin and will complement any color or pattern in your ensemble. It’s perfect for a beachy casual day or a more formal event. However, not all white polishes are long-lasting. Some require more than two coats to achieve a great finish or chip right away. With that in mind, we rounded up some of the best white nail polishes for you to consider.
