Amp up your striking white nail polish look with gold studs at the base for a simple but impactful touch. Opaque white nail polish packs quite the punch, but it also tends to show mistakes a lot more than other polish hues. So to make sure it looks its best, first file your nails for a perfect shape and trim your cuticles to ensure clean lines around the edges.
To create the look, I started off with Butter London Horse Power Nail Strengthener  ($19) as a nutrient-rich base coat. Then, paint on two coats of Nars Nail Polish in Ecume  ($20) for pure white coverage. While the polish was still wet, I added a gold stud from The New Black Rock and Roll Royalty Set  ($13), which comes with various polish hues and a bottle of edgy accents, including gold studs and black and clear rhinestones. To finish, I topped this look with Essie Good to Go  ($10) to seal in the stud and give my nails a glossy finish. If you have any messy edges, go back with a brush dipped in polish remover to clean up any stray polish.
