obsessed.: White nail polish

Girly post alert!

It hasn't exactly been at the forefront of fashion for a couple of years now, but I will forever love the look of all-white nailpolish. Shiny or matte—which often looks like you've painted your nails with white-out—either way, it makes me feel fresh and puts a smile on my face.

I will always remember the time I went in to a nail salon for a manicure with friends and I asked the lady for all white. She gave me a really funny look. "All white?" "All white." "Ooookay ..."

I don't have any photos of me sporting it, but Gaga and Gwen were, at one point, also fans, so here's some pictures, for reference sake.

P.S.-Welcome to all you new friends who have stopped by recently! Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. Ha ha! My nail tech still asks about my "crazy friend who like all white." :)

  2. Hilarious! I really made an impression. :D

  3. I've never been able to pull off all white. It makes my hands look sorta sickly and wrong coloured. That and my mom hates white nails. She thinks it makes my hands look dead. So I've always avoided it. You should do a many with all white and post pics. =)

  4. I love wearing all white. I don't do it often, because my nails chip easily... and then it looks weird and dirty. But I love it on other people!

  5. mandy,

    check out the latest work from my favorite comic artist, Lucy Knisely.

    I THINK YOULL BE PRETTY GEEKED (no pun intended)

  6. I dunno about this.. I think I'm too pale to pull it off. Plus it reminds me of that thing we did in Jr High when we used white out at nail polish. But if you love it, rock it! I'll stick to my tried and true ;)

  7. Oh! Now that you've posted about it, are you gonna share pics of your nails painted white :D

  8. I'm super pale too, but for some reason I feel like white works. But then, I've always tended more toward the non-neutral, non-red/pink colors. I have pretty black on my nails at the moment, but I'll try to do a white mani soon to post. :)

    And Rachel-Really great stuff! Thanks! :D
