I have a
love affair with white and gold nail designs and for all their beauty and versatility, the thing I love most about this look is how well it frames your own unique style. They’re classic and elegant, but they transform into something entirely unique if we use a modern shape or design.
Gold nail polish adds a touch of luxury and glamour. I used to rock
black and gold nails in any outfit or event, but I fell completely in love with this new style with a matte white background. We looked through thousands of designs to find our favorites but you can absolutely tweak these in so many ways. You might find something to copy or you might get some ideas for something entirely new to create.
Jazzy gold and white nails for a fun and chic look!
