Would You Wear White Nails Like Heidi?

Clark Samuels/Startraks

Long before we knew the joys of a good manicure, we went to work ourselves, painting our nails with White Out in class. Now, that we’ve grown up and started using actual nail polish, we’ve rediscovered the matte white look of our younger days. But it’s clearly a tricky look to pull off correctly, and we’re not so sure about Heidi Montag‘s long nails in all-white. We want to know: Would you wear long white nails?

Hallie on

I would not wear white nails. This look is not flattering. Heidi is just trying to be a trend-setter and she’s falling flat.

Kim v on

I did that in 3rd grade with White-Out. No thanks.

vanessa on

i thought black nails were kinda eeewww and now i love them … i don’t know about white though …. i just looks really tacky and when they chip it’ll look super nasty

Emily on

Anything that bold (or opaque) should be accompanied by shorter nails, I think- would make it more modern.

smith on

lol, i did that with white out when i was 6th grade. no thanks, she can keep them.

major.TAYLOR on

Any -TREND- HEIDI MONTAG tries to -SET-,
…..I WON’T DO!!!!!

SHE’S JUST -PLASTIC-, not a fashionista!!!!!

Abba on

That is so sixties Mod. But, very old. Try something new Heidi without copying someone or something else…

Maruski on

Did it in L.A. in the 80’s! Loved it then!

Kristin on

I don’t want to do ANYTHING Heidi does, so no thanks!

Rebbie480 on

I think it’s Heidi and who cares. Isn’t her 15 minutes over yet?

Rebbie480 on

It’s Heidi, who cares what her nails look like. Isn’t her 15 minutes over?

Bre on

I will NEVER copy anything that Heidi Montag does….She is so LAME! Team Lauren all the way—haha

Vanessa on

It’s a nice look for spring, but ONLY if you keep up with it or wear it for for no more than a couple of days with light colored clothing!

blake on

i really like it. even though other people think that it’s tackey and “so out” i think that it’s a cool retro colour and looks fine on nails.

ashlee on

I wore my nails short and white last year.. she is not a trendsetter

Crystal aka kiroshi on

Never i think the only room for white is a french manicure.long white nails are to bland. even with a french manicure there is a little contrast so sorry heidi sorry hon but it doesn’t work

Kelly on

She probably thought it was a different color with her sunglasses on. I refuse to wear anything that resembles her

Sarah on

Grewn isn’t a word. It’s grown.

Lindsay on

Short white nails were in for about 3 seconds last summer, there is a reason this trend didn’t last long.

jennifer on

I hate her. I would never do/wear anything that she does/wears!!! TEAM LAUREN!!!

jennifer 08 on

Heidi is soo fake and ugly.. i would never wear white nails.. who picked out that color spencer?

coco on

please stop trying to shove this fake girl down our throats…we don’t like her.
People please move on!

Rachel on

Why would I want to do anything that Heidi Montag does?

BF on

I stopped thinking white nails were cool in 6th grade, when I was bored with white-out.

Amy on

Forget the godawful nails…what about the hideous “Tony the Tiger” hoodie???

Anonymous on

I think it looks good as long as you keep them up. Its WAY better than black!! Ughh!!!

chelse on

Black nails are thing right now my dear dont u read people magazine? Not cute… the whole outfit has to go

sassafras tucson on

So ugly, just like the personality of the person wearing them. Fake just like the person wearing them. Really let’s hear about L.C. the only decent fashionista on The Hills.

gracie on

I think they look bad, maybe its the length if they were short it would look better

Jodi on

Please tell me you didn’t use the word “grewn.”

Please.

mendie on

I would not wear them. They look like a 3 years old nails.

DESTINY on

WHY WOULD YOU FOLLOW ANY TREND HEIDI TRIES? LMAO

janedoe1083 on

I think she is just getting more disgusting looking and less classy as time goes on. She looked better in the first and second seasons of the Hills, now I just think she’s gross, and her look (clothes, hair, nails, etc) is nothing to envy.

Ann on

Not a fan … a less opaque and more translucent shimmery white might be pretty, but I really don’t like this nasty matte finish.

kat27 on

I don’t know which is worse…the Fred Flinstone hoodie, the baby blue plastic sunglasses or the white out finger nails?!! UGGGGGGGly!

♥KATELYN♥ on

ANYTHING HEIDI DOES SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED A FASHION TREND. SHE IS AS FAKE AS THE SILICON IMPLANTED IN HER CHEST. WHITE NAILS, ORANGE TINTED SKIN, AND PLASTICOSITY WAS SO OUT IN 2003. LOL. ISNT HER 15 MINUTES OF FAME UP YET?

LA on

I don’t know what it is with this girl but she is just striking out….poor little thang…just can’t get anything right…wrong look, can’t sing, wrong guy…etc etc….Heidi you have so many resources put in front of you…wake up, smell the coffee and try again…white nails NOT a good look AT ALL!!!!

anonnn on

cheap

Nicole Tucker on

I wouldnt do anything that Heidi does. Shes a loser attention whore. I hope her clothing line does as bad as her horrible music career.

Ginet on

yes i would actually im wearing them right now!!

manda on

Nope White nails are out for me. They look tacky

whatever on

I think white nails not so bad but people on here are just being you know what becuz they hate heidi…i bet if luaren was to piant her nail white, people in here would say i love it and will try…i myself dont kare about what you people think i piant my nail white before and it look good….

CarrieinIreland on

This look is so old! I admit I still rock it on my toes but Christina Aguilera did it like 3 or 4 years ago when she was getting married! Everything looks horrible on that girl, whoever she is. Oh and by the way, her “boyfriend’s” last name Pratt means idiot over here in Ireland.

Amy on

White out is toxic…I hope her nails fall off… and i would never wear that color

Anonymous on

I would totally do that! Now that it’s getting warmer and I’m thinking summer thoughts, I could get excited about that as a trend. It wouldn’t work if your hands weren’t tanned, though.

katie on

i hate heidi, so anything she tries, i refuse to like.

sally on

Anything heidi does is pretty pathetic. She is a loser and a reality whore. get a life and her lips look so fake and plastic. She is morphing into an ugly butterfly. Unfortunately her life span is not only 48 hours!@

CarolM on

French tips, if my nails grew like that, all white nails, thanks but no thanks.

MICHELLE on

I WOULD WEAR THEM WITH A DESIGN ON ALL FINGERS

Jeana on

Heck NO!!! That is so ugly, but Heidi is no great prize anyway. It fits her.

Hannah on

Its so-so for me. I don’t think it looks tacky and I don’t think it’s the hottest look of the season either but it looks better than a lot of other celebrity nail polish out there.

jen on

I wouldn’t do anything Heidi-d-list does

Melissa on

Besides her ridiculous nails, whats up with the hideous hoody and ugly glasses? She has really poor taste.

Maria on

why won’t you wear something she does? i don’t think she copied anyone else either!!! & what if she wears something you guys like or starts a trend of something cute?

Jamie on

Maybe if they were shorter! They look like press-ons.

Heidi is such a fame-grubbing Lauren wannabe!

Colleen on

This look only works if your nails are short and your skin is tan….and neither is the case on Heidi. She just looks crazy.

hblakes on

I have been painting my nails white for the past few months now that she is doing it, it ruins it for me, i shall stop!

Rachel on

I did it long before Heidi. That said…my answer is yes.

Heather on

White Nails make me think of Jr. High when girls used white Out on their nails.

Evie on

I paint my nails white sometimes, I don’t do it attempting to be a trendsetter or anything, I just.. you know.. paint my nails..

The problem isn’t the color, it’s the shape and the fact that they look so obviously fake. It looks like she bought those press-on nails for little girls. :D

sabyn on

I wouldnt wear WHITE WHITE, flat or pearl…BUT I DO LOVE a color that hasnt a name, only a number – the closest is its a muted off white like an opal with tints of turq and fuschia in it…its all subtle and BEAUTIFUL, esp with a tan. And good for ME this is one color that even makes us pale faces look better. I LOVE IT. I have a thing of that opalescence in just about anything; I wore a terrific matte lipstick by Lip Sexxy (that they were stupid enough to quit making or my town just doesnt carry it – I cant get
Revlon to answer me -it was Ultima II but I understand that Revlon bought them out. Anybody out there know anybody at Revlon? I got MORE compliments on that lipstick, not only the color, “Flirting Fluschia” beautiful vivid shade; and its stay power…it was T H E best truly stay on after drinking AND eating lipstick ever made.
I can’t believe Revlon let it go by the wayside because it was better than ANYTHING they offer.
It was Fuschia with has that pink/blue undertone.

So YES I’d wear long opalescent soft, muted opal white with the blue/pink irridescence (its not as WILD as it sounds, is very pretty) Check it out.
Its by Wet n Wild.

Lindsay on

I would wear this trend! I think it’s really cute and I actually don’t mind Hiedi … I think a lot of people love to hate her and hate whatever she wears or looks like just because they don’t like her, even though they have never met her! People are way too judgemental!

ally on

WHEN IS THIS DUMB GIRL’S 15 MINUTES GOING TO BE UP?!?!?!?! SERIOUSLY. THIS IS PEOPLE….LET’S ONLY KEEP REAL CELEBRITIES ON HERE!!!! SHE DOES NOT COUNT. SHE IS A NOBODY, WILL ALWAYS BE A NOBODY, DON’T GIVE HER THE ATTENTION SHE DOES NOT DESERVE. HER FAME-WHORING BOYFRIEND NEEDS TO BE THROWN OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT AS WELL.

ally on

Okay on a serious note here…when is this girl’s 15 minutes going to be up? Her and her fame-whoring boyfriend need to be thrown out of the Limelight. I have always loved People magazine, and as a long-time subscriber and fan, you should keep REAL celebrities in your articles, not these fake ones trying to squeeze out all of their 15 minutes that they can. Let’s get back to the real celebs, you know Clooney, Damon, Meryl Streep. Real actors/actresses that have made a stamp on society.

Kiki on

I think the white nails would look better if they were sheer or had a shine to them but plain jane white…no! And what is worse is that hideous tiger sweatshirt…thats horrible!

Mary on

Putting aside my personal opinion of Heidi Montag, I never really liked the trend for white nails. Black was edgy and dark. Red is fierce and bold. Pastels are soft and sensual. Bright colors are fun and easy to rock. White is too plain.

Candice on

No, I really don’t think I would.

tam on

Well I have very short nails and now they are black. Sure I would try white just to see if I liked the look on me.

Morgan on

Heidi Montag is the poser of the century. Does she ACTUALLY think she is EVER going to be better then LC at anything? She should really stop being so fake and focus on leading a happy life WITHOUT people trying to control her (**COUGH, COUGH** Spencer **COUGH COUGH **). She was really great when she was friends with LC and didn’t have Spencer in her life.

Jennifer on

i did that in 5thgrade with my boy friend. ugggghhh it was disgusting looking. no thx, hm.

megan on

I have worn white nail polish before but with shor tnails. It looks a lot better when your nails are short instead of long. Personally I like black better.

sophie on

anything and everything heidi montag does is tacky. esp the white nails

Megan on

Ok the nails are a definite “NO” but what about the shirt she’s wearing?!?! what is that? tiger print?

lulu cupcake on

white is a look that is better saved for short nails. on short nails it looks crisp and fresh, on long nails it is tacky-jacky!!

jhgkgf on

yes maybe. Not chalk white but more like light beige or really light pink/purple. Light gray is cool too

Reema on

I dont care who will start the trend ,, I LOVE white nailes.

Hope on

I love the look not because heidi wore it but because its a clean look and goes with almost any skin tone

donna on

i don’t get people who don’t like white nails. i’m old school and like my nails long (and natural!). they’re about 1/2 inch past the tip, and white is my favorite color, because it looks so clean. I don’t wear it quite as bright–i prefer it sheer–but it’s classy and, according to my bf, very sexy.

kassondra on

I think its cute and all yall are haters because you didnt think of first….. She’s not the only one that does that either!
