    16 Things You Never Realized You Could Do With White Nail Polish

    Alabaster beauties.

    1. You don't even need a base to make minimalist, high-fash designs. This grid art is so subtle and so edgy.

    2. Crosshatch designs stand out particularly well with white paint.

    3. And simple striping is a great motif for any outfit or season.

    4. A white base can be a really cool background for a number of nail art designs.

    5. See how easy it is to do a dice design?

    6. If you're into jewel or crystal accents, you can use any color without having to worry about matching your polish.

    7. Take inspiration from the French manicure, then add a bit of edge.

    8. Perhaps you never realized how much an accent nail stands out against white?

    9. And you can mix it with any color to create candy-like, marbled designs.

    10. A more polished way to do white nail art is to work with a nude polish base.

    11. Linear cutouts look exceptionally cool in white.

    12. And a mix of cutout shapes rocks even harder in white.

    13. Textured designs look even more detailed in a pearly hue.

    14. A simple white manicure tends to make jewelry pop.

    15. And any use of black on a white background becomes especially dramatic.

    16. And while white looks great in all seasons, it's especially complimentary with summery flash tattoos.
