Chic Pink and White Nails You’ll Love
Pink and white are one of my favorite nail color combos. White is a timeless color when it comes to clean, polished, and beautiful nails, and as Who What Wear puts it “pink is one of those shades that goes with absolutely everything – you can dress it up or down, and it looks immaculate on all skin tones.“
Pink was definitely a dominating color when it came to nails this past year. With “Viva Magenta” being named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023 plus the release of the hit movie “Barbie“, shades of pink have been all over my Instagram feed. And I’m definitely not mad about it.
I expect to keep seeing more of this classic color pairing well into 2024, so I’ve gathered 23+ breathtaking pink and white nail designs to inspire you to try out this chic color combination. I’ve got timeless pink & white manicures as well as bold looks to choose from, so keep reading and discover new nail designs to try!
Classic Pink and White Acrylic Nails & Gel Nails
My favorite thing about pink and white nails is how they have the classy and elegant style of a French manicure with a more modern, feminine touch. Check out my top picks for classic pink and white nail designs below.
French Manicure w/ Pearl Accents
I am obsessed with this nail design!
These pearl bead accents are a gorgeous way to upgrade the classic style of a ‘pink & white’ French manicure. This stunning look has an elegant, feminine touch that I am so in love with.
You can sport this pink and white beauty any time of the year – while attending a wedding, during a Christmas party, or if you just want a beautiful and unique look to show off during the week.
Rounded Nude Pink Nails w/ White Tips
This lovely pink & white manicure has a classy, minimal style that would add a chic touch to any look. I love the modern twist on the French manicure using rounded tips of squares.
I think this look proves that sometimes simple is the way to go. A timeless and stunning classic like French tips will forever be a look we can depend on, and I love seeing modern variations of this timeless style.
What does pink and white mean at a nail salon?
Asking for pink and white nails at a salon usually implies a gel French-tipped mani with a pinkish nude base. While you can use these colors for any nail design, classic pink and white gel nails are a modern twist on the classic style of a French manicure.
Pink Square-Shaped French Manicure
I love this soft pink paired with French tips and how it adds a lovely pop of color to a classic nail design.
You can’t go wrong with a timeless style like a French manicure, and this stunning shade of pink elevates these nails. I would wear this elegant style year-round for a chic and refined look.
French Tipped Nails w/ Gem Accents
I think the crystal accents on these gorgeous pink & white nails are so eye-catching. I love the glamorous look of these nails, from the almond shape to the French tips and the crystals.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated pink and white style to wear to an event this year, these stunning nails would be my top pick.
What is the difference between French manicure and pink and white?
The colors and nail techniques used are the main differences between these styles. A French manicure is a classic style using a nude or pink nude nail polish base with white polish on the tips. Pink and white nails are similar, but the base is always a shade of pink, and this manicure typically uses gel polish.
Both of these styles are gorgeous and timeless, and in my experience, you can wear either for a refined look. However, a French manicure would be my top pick if you prefer a classic style with basic polish, while I would recommend the pink and white nails if you want to add more color or if you prefer gel nails.
Pink and White Ombre Nails
Ombre is another gorgeous and classic manicure style that I can’t help but come back to time and time again. And I know I’m not the only one who thinks that pink and white are the perfect colors for an ombre look, because according to Allure magazine, the French ombre is “timeless and perfect for every occasion.“
If you’re on the fence about pairing the classic French tip colors with a modern ombre, don’t worry – I’ve got some stunning nail designs here to prove how gorgeous this look is!
White Nails w/ Pink Glitter Ombre
I love the contrast of the creamy white nail polish and the shimmering metallic pink accents.
The ombre effect paired with hot pink flakes give these nails a fun, elegant, and modern look. And in my opinion, that makes this nail design perfect for anyone who wants to add some spice to a classic nail design.
Pastel Pink & White Ombre Nails w/ Gems
I love how the blend of pastel pink and white gives off a subtle ombre effect, and the gem accents add a glamorous touch.
This gorgeous nail design is so refined, and the accents create a dazzling and unique look. In my opinion, this manicure could be worn for any occasion, from an everyday look to stunning bridal nails.
Pink Coffin-Shaped Nails w/ White Accents
I love a unique twist on a classic style. This ombre pink and white manicure is a stunning design, and the soft pink tone with asymmetrical white tips creates an alluring look.
Coffin-shaped nails are an excellent choice for this style and add even more of a distinctive style. If you want to spice this look up even more, I recommend using a silver glitter polish to add accent lines along the white tips.

Baby pink is the perfect color to pair with white for this polka-dot manicure. I love how this timeless pattern and the soft pink shade give these nails a retro 1950s vibe, although the French-tipped accent nails add a modern edge.

Vibrant pink and dainty white flowers are a sweet and dreamy design that will always be in style.

This beautiful style has a charming fairytale vibe that I seriously adore. The long almond nails and rose details give this manicure a sophisticated feel, and I think the nude pink makes the perfect canvas for this nail art.
