I bought this because I was looking for a nice opaque white for my nails. I swatched it in the store and thought it would work. WRONG! I got home and painted my nails and it was a disaster. I took that set off and repainted them and it was even worse. It's sooo thick and takes forever to dry. Two of my fingers dried with bubbles. I love the color, but it's just too much of a hassle. When I tried to apply it thinly, it was so uneven, I had to do it "thicker" and it just looks crazy. I will keep looking for my perfect white.
This polish looks great, and lasts about a week, with a base and top coat, with very minor chipping.
The formula could use some improving though. It takes quite some time to dry and goes on pretty thick. I'd buy this product again because it's a beautiful clean white, but I'm not crazy about the hassle it can be to apply. Next time I'll probably splurge on a more expensive white.
I cannot stand this polish. It's supposed to be a white creme finish, but the formula is just s***.
It's runny, streaky, sticky, and gummy. It takes at least two coats and takes FOREVER to dry, even with a quick-dry top coat.
It may look like your basic white creme, but I warn you to stay away!
love love love this white sooo opaque and nice constincincy and lasts long!
I own a lot of Nail Polishes from the "X-treme wear" line and i actually really like them for the price. I was really disappointed with this polish, though. It's a nice color but very gooey, sticky, streaky, and just not good. It's like if you left a normal nail polish open for a few hours. I ended up throwing it out! Ahhhh alas, I'm still searching for the perfect white.
Well worth it!! One good coat and its completely opaque. Only downside was it was a tad bit runny. Will definitely purchase again.
I am quite impressed with this white nail polish since a good white nail polish is hard to find. It is a little streaky, but it looks pretty good in 3 coats.
I was pretty impressed with this polish. Its a one coat wonder! I can't imagine using 2 coats because it does come out a little thick, but thats ok. It wasn't streaky at all and easy to move around. It took a little while to dry, but that could have just been me. I wasn't impressed with the brush, but I like it soooo much better than those SH nail polishes in the triangle bottle. Also the polish got a little bubbly on me? Thats the only downside.
EDIT 7/22/11::: The extreme wear formula is awful. It peeled off my nails in hours, and I had a base coat on! I got another Xtreme in a different color (disco ball) and it did the same thing! >:-|
So in the future as much as i may be tempted by the colors, I will not re-buy continued >>
I love these Xtreme Wear polishes. They are so cheap and the color selection is awesome. They wear really well too
This is a beautiful, opaque, pure white color. It's a great base for dotting or marbling. Two coats and it is completely opaque. The drying time is normal, not too long, not too short. The formula is a little bit runny but it's easy to work with.
I will buy again and I will definitely be buying more from this SH line.
I generally don't like the Sally xtreme wear nail polishes. I find that they're usually kind of sticky and gummy. However, this polish is fantastic It's thick but not at all hard to work with (didn't have to thin it at all). It's nearly opaque after one good layer and the dry time is somewhat better than average. It removed very easily and didn't chip too much too fast. It worked great as a base for water marbling!
