Trend Alert: White Nail Polish

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and if you follow traditional fashion rules, that means it's officially time to start wearing white. So why not take a cue from Scarlett Johansson and try wearing it on your nails? (It works on real people too: Check out what Retail_therapy has to say.)

Pure white and off-white nails are very trendy right now, and both shades look especially good with tanned skin and summery clothes, like brights and pastels. Here are three products to help you get the look.

OPI Nail Lacquer in Fit for a Queensland ($7.50). This shade from OPI's Summer Australia collection has an iridescent finish.

Two more, so

Lippmann Collection in Amazing Grace ($15) is a pure white polish with a more matte finish.

Yves Saint Laurent Nail Touch in White Sparkle ($23) has a cloudier opal look, and the pen makes it super-easy to apply.

 @DakotaXHasXHerXSwagger For sure! It's a fun trend and I love that it looks great with just about any ensemble. Check out this more recent post we did on white polish!

I adore this trend! I'm lucky that I'm not like super pale but got golden skin so it looks super chic =)

I live in Texas and i just had my nails done white. Everyone around here keeps asking me what's with the white nails? I told them it's a new trend, I love it. Most texans aren't even use to the black nail polish yet. We'll see how long it takes to get this way.

I like the white but I usually only use one coat. Two seems a little too milky.

I love white nailpolish! I get a lot of attention from guys when I wear it. My boyfriend says he loves it and that a lot of guys secretly love it but are too shy to say anything. He says a lot of celebrities wear it and showed me a site on Flickr where someone has a big collection of pictures.

I just bought an iridescent white not too long ago. I don't like it on my fingernails, but I must try it on my toes! Not much of a fan of the stark white. I'll stick with a pale pink for the fingers.

i'm hesitant to try this trend... i have light brown skin and when i get a french manicure, even though it's only the tips that are white, i still feel like they were painted on with white-out... so i just rely on my clear polish with a tint of pink for a clean look even on my toes... i wonder if the pen nail polish is easier to apply? hmmm...

I just painted my toe-nails a sheer off-white. I agree that stark white just looks like white-out.

I like it. I have tan skin and I tried white nail polish before. It looks good.

I'd have to go with an off-white. I tried this trend last week and I just kept feeling like I had White-Out all over my hands!

I love this trend and I've been doing it for a while now. However, I don't wear a true white nail color, I wear more of an offwhite color!

I like the more cream and off-white colors better, but I definitely agree, the color that Scarlette is wearing looks exactly like white-out and I hate it just as much as I hated black nails. The OPI color might be nice though, since it has an iridescent finish.
