Not as severe as a hard white, ivory is an off-white color that can be a great base color to showcase nail art, or a sophisticated neutral shade that has its own flair.
Whether you have long or short nails, off-white nails of this shade look great in any season.
Yes, that means even after Labor Day! Because it is not a flashy white, ivory can be worn year round without fear of making a fashion faux-pas.
In the warmer months, ivory nails can look bright and breezy, and in the wintry months it can evoke the feeling of a snowy, chilly day.
You can adorn nails of this shade with nearly any type of nail art that strikes your fancy since ivory can serve as a fairly universal backdrop.
Depending on how thickly ivory polish is applied to the nail, and how opaque your polish is, you can have a subtle hint of polish or a bolder look that demands attention.
Even so, this color is so versatile that it can fit in with nearly every occasion. It can go from casual to formal and day to night in a snap.
Don’t forget about texture. Spice up your ivory game with a polish that sports more of an iridescent sheen if you want a break from the norm.
Matte looks can look great in ivory, too, and could be especially fitting for winter months when snuggly fabrics like velvet and cable-knit sweaters are in fashion.
For a fresher, cleaner look, it’s tough to go wrong with a high-gloss shine. Ivory nails are a timeless statement of class while looking fabulous for everyday wear.
