Back to Basics-OPI Alpine Snow

Hi there guys.  I hope you all are having a great weekend.  I've been a total lump this weekend but I can't complain because it has been so relaxing!  I have some major swatching to do today and I even have some nail art planned :)  

Today I have a polish that I consider to be a nail art must have, a stark white.  Before OPI Alpine Snow, I was using a bottle of the Maybelline Color Show white, but I ended up using the entire bottle.  I decided to try a different brand and went with my old standby, OPI.  I have to say that I really love this white.  White polishes are notorious for being problematic, whether it be streaky, thin, or not self leveling.  This polish has none of those problems.  I used two easy coats with topcoat below.  I also really like wearing white nails for summer.  I think white is a bright option, without being neon, and really looks crisp and clean and accentuates the nail shape.

What's your favorite white polish?  Do you like wearing plain white nails?


  1. That is a pretty white and I know a lot of people really like it. I'm not too picky with the whites I use. Right now I'm using Salon Perfect Sugar Cube.

  2. Alpine Snow is perfection on you! I love a good white too and right now my go-to white is Zoya Purity but you can never have too many whites so it looks like I will be getting Alpine Snow too ;-) I agree, I love the way a nice white mani looks, I even like wearing it as a pedicure too!!

  3. I really like this white! I may have to pick this one up after finishing the white polishes I have...
