Now that summer is just a few weeks away, it’s the best time to sport some gorgeous white nails with these white nail design ideas.

This time of year is perfect for wearing white. In America, it’s become a tradition to wear white after Memorial Day. That’s because the warmer months are usually spent wearing lighter colors.

Now, of course, you can wear white nails at any time of year. I find that they look particularly wonderful during the snowy winter months. No matter the time of year, these white nail designs will look great on you.
