47 White Nail Design Ideas

Classic White Square Acrylics

Keep it simple with some classy white square acrylics. Whether you go with more of a translucent white or a bright milky white, these simplistic nails always look classy (and always match your outfits). 

Coffin Style White Nails

The classic coffin shape is another great option. Use one of the inspo pictures below, or pick another favorite design to pair with the coffin shape. 

Subtle Glitter

We love the barely-there look of these glittery designs. The first idea features two on each hand covered in glitter. It sounds extreme, but the glitter matches the nail color so you can just barely tell. A beautiful look if you want to spice up some simple nails! 

Or, add a tiny line of silver glitter as shown in the second idea. 

Classic White French Tips

When it comes to white nails, you can’t go wrong with French tips. This classic nail design always looks amazing and is the perfect minimalistic style.

Trendy Wavy

The abstract wavy nail trend is one we’re living for. There are so many different ways you can put this trend into practice – view some of our favorite ideas below.

Simple, But Abstract

If you want a simple white nail design that isn’t just a blank white nail, check out these options that utilize your natural nail paired with some more abstract line designs.

Wavy White French Tips

If you love French tips and want to spruce them up a bit, this nail combines the wavy trend with French tips. So unique and fun!

V-Shaped White Tips

We love French tips and we love V French tips. Pick your favorite – you can’t go wrong with either!

Smoky White Nails

Marble is cool, but our new obsession is smoky white nails. Do it on all fingers or just a single finger – whatever you’re feeling. 

White Ombre

Ombre nails are another classic design that never seems to go out of style. White ombre utilizes your natural nail color for another minimalistic, gorgeous look.

White-on-White

You’ll notice plenty of nail art inspiration featuring your natural nail color as the base, but you can also opt for white-on-white designs like this one. Simply select a greyish beige for the base color and use bright white for the design on top!

There’s nothing like a sharp nail that will make your mom cringe. If you’re looking for a white nail design that uses the shape to stand out, opt for some cat claws. For the design, we love a simple white nail or french tips! 

Single Finger Bling

Adding bling to a single nail is a great way to add some excitement to your white nails. Whether you decide to cover the nail or opt for a single statement gem, bling is always 

Ring Finger Marble

Classic white nails with a marble design on the ring finger just screams luxury. You can also go for marble on every nail if you want something more exciting!

Add a Heart

This fun cream-colored nail adds a black heart design to a single nail on each hand. Cute and simple, we love it. 

White With Gold

If you’re willing to bring in some color, adding some gold flakes or glitter is a great way to bling up your white nails.
