Move over pretty pastels and blindingly-bright neons–the nail polish aisle has a new ‘it’ color that’s not really a color at all: white.
We first noticed the deceptively simple hue on the Spring 2013 runways (like at rag & bone, before it started showing up on stars like Miley Cyrus and Zoe Saldana this summer. Now, we’re finding ways to work it into our polish rotation as much as possible. And luckily, it’s hard to go wrong when the shade is so versatile.
But don’t be mistaken: Not all white polishes were created equal. It may seem counter-intuitive, but, because of the shade’s simplicity, subtle variations, like glossy or matte finishes or warm and cool undertones, can make a world of difference. We’ve rounded-up and reviewed the best white polishes at ever price point–so you can be sure the white you buy is the right white for you.
