15 Simple White Nails Ideas To Copy in 2024

When I started doing my nails in the Jurassic era, whites were the only polish shades a girly girl could wear. Also, respectable girls would have their nails short in solid or milky simple white manicures. Maybe a light pink, but mostly white. The other options were red, but only for older married women, or black for rebels. No nail art, design, acrylics, or extensions existed in the 90s. All we had was a lot of stupid rules attempting to control women’s bodies and creative expression even with simple things as nails. Fortunately, 30 years later, we can choose our nail colors, wow! (contains sarcasm because we should be able to choose many more things, but this is not the point here). Nowadays, simple white nail designs are not so popular, but since I’m feeling nostalgic, here are some beautiful ideas for easy white nails.

I hope you enjoy it!

French tips, swirls, with glitter, for Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s. I picked my favorite ideas for white nails design that are super easy to DIY or have a simple aesthetic. Perfect for classic brides, low-profile ladies, or if you’re in the mood for something neutral.

Usually, French tips have a light pink base, but I love them with a milky white base against the solid white tip. It’s so chic, don’t you think?

I find it so hard to design a thing Frenchie on square nails! But, if you or your nail artist are super skilled, look at this minimalist and romantic beauty. The clear base could not be simpler. Even the heart is in half making it way more clean than romantic.

You can barely see the glitter here, so it can’t get simpler than that. Silver is the best color choice to keep the manicure discrete, yet not boring. A thin glitter French tip paired with a thin cuff on a milky white base is a perfectly feminine nail design.

I love swirls as a simple nail idea because they are great for beginners. Swirls are very forgiving if you don’t master the brush yet.

All white all the way, of course. It is the chicest manicure you can have. Neutral, classic, basic.

If all white is too boring for you, add a tiny sticker or make a delicate design on one nail.
