Grab your cowboy hats, and buckle up, ladies and gentlemen, cause we’re about to take you on the ride of your life through the various pink and white nail designs we know and love.
By the end of your journey across the wild west of pink and white, we’d bet you a buck or two that you’ll be giddying up to the nail saloon ASAP!
What Are White and Pink Nails
There are no tricks here, white and pink nails are exactly as they sound, nails that are painted white and pink. We will say, however, that the types and styles of white and pink nails seem endless, like the wild bare desert spread before you. You can pair white and pink together in your manicure in many unique ways, or if you’re a Plain Jane (and there’s nothing wrong with that), you can always keep it simple.
Perhaps by the end of this article, you will have discovered that milky white nails combined with pink are not your thing, which is okay. Maybe black and white nails are more your speed. You’ll never know until you try!
When to Consider Pink and White Nail Designs
You can consider pink and white nail designs whenever you feel like them. If it’s your first time getting pink and white nails, and they’re looking bland to you, spice them up with some designs!
There are many different ways you can elevate your pink and white nails, such as:
- Chrome pigment
- Shimmer polish
- Acrylic nails
- Gel polish
- Rhinestones or diamonds
- Nail stickers
Whichever you choose, your pink and white nails will be looking extra fabulous.
How To Do Pink and White Nails
Depending on the type of pink and white nails you want, this step-by-step tutorial might be helpful. We love pink and white nails with glitter the most; therefore, we want to tell you how to do it yourself.
What you’ll need to do pink and white nails with glitter:
- White nail polish
- Pink nail polish
- White glitter
- Makeup sponge
- Makeup or nail brush
- Top coat
- Base coat
Apply a layer of base coat to prep the nails and prevent premature chipping.
Paint a couple of layers of pink polish onto each nail. Ensure they are fully dry before moving on to step #3.
Paint the pink and white onto the makeup sponge stacked horizontally. We suggest putting white at the top and pink at the bottom.
Dab the sponge onto your nails until you get the desired ombre effect. You might have to reapply the polish to the sponge a few times to get a fully saturated nail.
Once the nails are dry, apply a layer of top coat to get the nails wet again. Do this step and the top coat one nail at a time. Dip the nail brush into the glitter very gently, then tap the brush’s side repeatedly as it hovers over the nail. This will give the nails a light dusting of glitter.
After repeating that process over every nail, seal everything up with a layer of top coat, and there you have it: pink and white glitter nails.
Pink And White Ombre Nails
If you want to be a part of the hit new nail trend, you must try pink and white ombre nails. Not only are they feminine, flirty, and fun, but they’re also sophisticated and classy looking with a twist of uniqueness.
If you don’t know what ombre is, it’s a color gradient from one shade into another, usually from dark to light.
If you are intrigued by pink and white ombre nails, we can tell you how to do them! Check out our table below to learn how to create ombre nails at home.
What you need for DIY pink and white ombre nails:
- Base Coat
- Top Coat
- Pink nail polish
- White nail polish
- Makeup sponge
|How to Do Pink and White Ombre Nails||Description|
|Preperation||Apply a layer of your base coat to each nail to help protect and prime them. Ensure you let them fully dry before moving on to the next step.|
|First application||Paint your nails in either pink or white color. You can add as many layers as you want, but we suggest at least two and no more than three.|
|Sponge preparation||Once your polish is dry, grab your makeup sponge and paint on both colors, stacking them horizontally onto the sponge. You can put either shade at the bottom, but we suggest the darker one.|
|Second application||Dab the sponge onto your nails several times until you get the desired ombre effect. You might have to reapply the polish to the sponge a few times to get a fully saturated nail.|
|Seal the deal||Once everything is dry and you are happy with the ombre, add a layer of your top coat to seal everything in and add a glossy finish.|
|Extra||This step isn’t necessary, but if you want to add any designs, rhinestones, glitter, or chrome pigment, now is the time. Remember to add a layer of top coat once you’re done to seal it all in.|
Pink And White Acrylic Nails
Acrylic nails are probably one of the most popular types of nails to get at the salon, and for a good reason.
People love acrylic nails because they:
- Add length
- Create more room for designs
- Make nails appear thicker
- Make you feel confident
- Last much longer than regular nails
If you are convinced you want acrylics, then these pink and white acrylic nails might just be what you are searching for. The combination of pink and white is stunning, but coupling that with your favorite acrylic shape will make them even more beautiful. If you don’t have a favorite acrylic shape or don’t know the exact one you want, check out the table below to help you determine.

Pink and white nails are incomplete without dazzling diamonds. Rhinestones, diamonds, or gems are all fantastic items to incorporate into your manicure if you want extra pizzazz.
It may appear complicated, but adding diamonds to your nails is simple, and we can tell you how!
What you need for pink and white nails with diamonds:
- Top coat
Once you have the three tools you need, it’s time to get bedazzling:
- While your nails are still wet from the pink and white polish, use the tweezers to pick up and place the diamonds in the spots you want them. If your nails are dry before you start this step, apply a thin layer of top coat.
- Once the diamonds are in place, let them dry for at least five minutes to ensure they are stuck.
- Once nothing seems like it will move, apply a layer or two of top coat over the diamonds. This will help seal them in extra good.

Recreating the pretty little Disney-looking stars is pretty straightforward. All you need is white nail polish and a toothpick.
Here’s how to design tiny Disney stars for your pink and white swirl nails:
- Once you have finished your pink and white nails, ensure they are completely dry. You can add a layer of top coat if you want, but it’s unnecessary.
- Carefully use a toothpick to dip in the white nail polish bottle and drop a small dollop of white polish on the nail in the spot you want the star.
- Quickly, before it dries, use a new toothpick or the other end of the same one, and place it in the middle of the dollop. With light pressure, pull the white polish outwards to create the arm of the star. Repeat the pulling from the middle four times.
- Repeat the process for as many stars as you like. Remember to do it one at a time, or the polish may dry before you can complete the star.
- Apply a final layer of clear top coat to seal everything in.

White And Pink Christmas Nails
If you are a pink king or queen at heart, no matter the time of year, then these white and pink Christmas nails are made just for you.

What Do Pink and White Nails Mean?
There is no meaning behind pink and white nails. If you see someone with one of the manicure styles mentioned, it probably means their super cool and trendy.
How To Remove Pink and White Nails?
Removing pink and white nails is the same as any other. A regular nail polish remover will work if you use regular polish.
If you use acrylics or gel nail polish, a 100% pure acetone remover will remove them. However, we suggest getting it done professionally at the salon, as proper or premature removal can cause damage.
Why Are Pink and White Nails So Expensive?
If you are experiencing a dent in your wallet after getting pink and white nails, it might be time to consider what kind you are getting. A regular manicure will be the least expensive and something you can do at home for free. However, getting gel or acrylic nails will up the cost significantly. We suggest purchasing white and pink nail polish from the drugstore and doing your manicure to lessen the cost.
How Long Do Pink and White Last?
The longevity of your manicure depends on which kind you get. Regular polish will last about a week, while gel and acrylics can last up to a month before they start to come off. Gel and acrylic nails will rarely, if ever, chip, but they will slowly start to lift off your natural nails.
Why Are There Bubbles In My Pink and White Nails?
Bubbles will appear on the nails when the polish is applied too thick. Apply your polish in thin layers instead of one thick one. This will help diminish the issue of bubbles.
Pink and White Unite
Raise your hand if you are tuckered out after the long ride (raises hand.) Hopefully, along your journey, you saw plenty of pink and white nail designs and ideas that sparked your creative juices. Whether you choose the simple or extravagant route, we support your decision.
