The History of Pink and White Nails

Different stories exist on how these nails came to be. For instance, WWD opines that an American makeup artist, Jeff Pink, actually invented the white tip and nude nail look in the 1970s.

Per the article, Pink took what was initially called the ‘natural nail look’ to Paris runways. There, models and designers hopped on the trend. And when it grew in popularity, Pink trademarked the new name, The Original French Manicure, after launching his own nail care line, Orly International, in 1975.

While Jeff Pink’s story sounds plausible, other nail polish enthusiasts argue the white tip-nude base combo existed 40 years before Pink claimed to have invented it. For instance, the BBC suggests that the early French manicure was invented in France during the 1930s by the beauty company Max Factor for the stylish ladies of Paris.

Though we can’t ascertain the exact origin of this trend, we’re sure of one thing: this nail look has evolved to become the trendy pink and white nails we now see all over social media.

Gone are the days when you have to rely on only painting your nail with basic polish to get this nail glam. Now, you have a lot of options available to get that aesthetic nail you’ve always wanted and it’s no different for pink and white nails.

Here are the best ways to get them:

Traditional Nail Polish

This is the most common and oldest way of getting them. Simply brush pink and white polish on your nails and wait for them to dry.

Gel Polish

This is a more durable way of getting classic pink and white nails. When it comes to applying the polish on your nails, do it the same way you apply traditional nail polish.

The only difference is gel polish requires putting your nails under a UV lamp for it to dry. Although it is more expensive than traditional nail polish, you can go two to three weeks without dealing with chipped polish.

Dip Powder

Dip powder is much easier to apply. You don’t have to be an expert nail technician to get this look. Just apply a clear base coat on your nails and dip them in a pigmented powder.
