Move over beige and baby pink! When it comes to nail polish colors, there’s a new neutral in town!


Now, we know white polish has been around for a while—it first caught our eye on the Spring 2013 runways—but we’re happy to report that this seasonal sensation has finally made it into the year-round category. That’s right, you heard it here first: Crisp white color is the new neutral of the mani world.

And why’s that, you ask? Well, not only does it pack more punch than your standard pale pastel, but this sophisticated shade also pairs perfectly with any outfit. Whether you’re at the office or doing it up for date night, a clean white successfully delivers the subtle statement we all want our mani to make.

To help you get a head start on 2015’s hottest color trend, we rounded up five white polishes to get your hands on STAT. Here are our favorites and how to wear them.
