    What We Love About White Glitter Nails

    White nails with glitter are a staple manicure. There are so many reasons to love white glitter nails, and we have collected a few of our favorites that we’d like to share.

    You Can Make Them Bold or Simple

    We love that white glitter nails can be as extra or as simple as you like. The more glitter you add, the more dramatic the manicure will look. If you are used to fancy and dramatic nails, you can always top the last manicure you had by simply adding more glitter and more designs.

    If you are a more simple manicure kind of person and want to incorporate some fun, even the smallest amount of glitter will make a significant but classy difference.

    All Designs Go With Them

    We love that all designs go with white glitter nails. You can pair nearly any nail art onto your white glitter nails, and it will always look fantastic!

    Can Match Almost Every Outfit

    We love that white glitter nails can fit almost any outfit. Sometimes when we choose outfits that are a bit more colorful, it can be hard to find a manicure that matches while still being fun and unique. White glitter nails, however, are the perfect manicure for that!

    How To Do White Nails With Glitter

    Sometimes, we don’t like to see our wallets cry. Therefore, we suggest trying to tackle white nails with glitter at home. Not only will you save money, but over time you will get great at doing your nails so that you may never have to hit the nail salon again (cue smiling wallet.)

    Tools you’ll need for white nails with glitter:

    1. White nail polish
    2. White glitter polish (whatever kind you like)
    3. Nail file
    4. Top coat
    5. Base coat

    Step #1

    Before putting anything on your nails, remove any excess nail polish and file them into your preferred shape. You can refer to the acrylic nail chart near the top of the article to see what shapes you can create.

    Step #2

    Once the nail is prepped, it’s time to prime. Paint a layer of base coat over each nail. This will help protect and prepare a perfect base for the nail polish.

    Step #3

    When the base coat is dry, paint at least two layers of white polish. Try the three-stripe method when painting, one in the middle and two on either side. This will help to ensure the nail is fully painted.

    Step #4

    Before applying your glitter polish, you can either use a layer of topcoat over the white or go straight in with the glitter polish; the choice is yours. You will likely only need a layer or two of glitter polish, depending on the glitter particle sizes and the amount of glitter you want.

    Step #5

    Finish off the nails with a layer of top coat to ensure everything is sealed and protected. If you want to add rhinestones or other designs, now would be your time!

    White Acrylic Nails With Glitter

    Nothing elevates your manicure like shimmer and shine. These white acrylic nails with glitter are optimal for making you feel and look glamorous. However, if getting fake nails doesn’t appeal to you, short white nails with glitter will look just as lovely.

    If you have no clue what acrylic nails are, they’re simply just fake nails, and there are many different shapes you can file them into, such as:

    • Stiletto
    • Coffin
    • Square
    • Oval
    • Almond
    • Round

    Let us clarify this even further if this all sounds foreign to you. Anyone can wear any acrylic shape, but some are better suited to some hands. Scan the chart below to determine what acrylic nails work best for your hands.

    White Acrylic Nails With Glitter Shapes Who They Are For
    Round White Acrylic Nails With Glitter Works best for people with narrow nail beds or who want to elongate their fingers.
    Square White Acrylic Nails With Glitter This shape is ideal for people who spend a lot of time typing on keyboards. They are easy to maintain and very common.
    Oval White Acrylic Nails With Glitter Perfect for people who want to make their fingers look longer and more slender. Very easy to maintain and DIY.
    Almond White Acrylic Nails With Glitter An excellent shape for elongating the fingers, but if you do lots of work with your hands, they are easy to break.
    Stiletto White Acrylic Nails With Glitter This shape is for people that like their manicures to be noticed. However, they are super easy to break if you do a ton of work with your hands.
    Coffin White Acrylic Nails With Glitter Not the most practical nail shape. If you have weak or short nail beds, go for a shorter coffin shape, as it leaves less chance of breakage.
