I bought this just because it says that it's the perfect white nail polish for the french tip manicure. It's very white but the formula sucks. It became so sticky after a few months of use. It's very horrible to use even if you use a nail art brush or the scotch-tape method for doing the french tips. Unlike my monroe's red (and my other orly nail polish) which is already 2 yrs. old, the formula is still good. Will definitely buy other white nail polish.
Gets 2 lippies for a nice pure white color. That's about it. Trying to actually apply it to tips resulted in a disaster. It's thick and goopy - and the brush is too big for tips. Ugh, waste of 6 bucks. Back to CND Bisou de Lulu.
This is my go-to for bright white french tips. Easiest to use, what with the rubber top and thin brush. I have needed to thin the bottle (I used that Poshe thinner), but that's probably due to the bottle being left open for longer than others while I apply.
I am writing from AUstralia. THis is a sheer off white polish (not stark white) which makes the whites of my nails look so white. it is sheer so if you paint it one coat on the nail bed it will not show very much.i use two coats on my nail. i use it under the Manicare French Pink (available only in Australia) or Sally Hansen French Pink. Great results. lasts long without chipping for a week. the non stark white, made it look natural as opposed to "fake nail" look. i am not sure about it being quick drying as touted by the company as I use, Out THe Door topcoat by INM.it retails for $16.95 in selected Price Attack stores so is not cheap, but i do feels its a good quality nail polish. it is a big bottle i suppose....
I tested this (a mini bottle from one of the Orly French Manicure sets) on the tip of one fingernail. With one coat, it is extremely white, well pigmented, and opaque -- but also a little gluey in consistency. It's not my kind of colour at all, as I prefer a more natural look for a French. Not bad but not something I'd pick for myself.
I'm a do-it-yourself at home french manicure fan, and I've used many different white polishes for tipping my free edge - this is by far my favorite, and I've tried many, many other types. It's really nice and pigmented with just the right consistancy - two thin coats are all that is needed in order to create a crisp white tip. I've never recieved these kinds of results from another brand, this is also due to the gained steadiness in grip achieved by the rubber cap. Control over the brush is vitally important when tipping off a french manicure, and the grip cap makes it much easier than any other type of cap that I've tried. The bottle is nice and large and will surely last me a long time, although I'll probably opt for a french manicure more often now that I've found a shade and brand I'm happiest with.
I love this bright white formula. You have to use it carefully or it will become gloopy on you. I found that using a thin coat, letting it dry, then using another thin coat is the key. I pair it with Opi's Skinny Dipn in Lake Michgn nude shade, then add a top coat of Sally Hansen's Mega Shine. It's perfect! I received compliments on my nails the very next day! A co-worker of mine wanted to know where I had gotten my nails done. Needless to say, she was shocked to find out I did them myself. I will always purchase this shade.
Much to my surprise this product is super gloppy, super sticky/tacky, and takes so long to dry that I usually mess it up so bad that I have to just take it off. I've NEVER worn it so I don't know how long it lasts, but being that it is so crummy that I can't even get to that point says plenty.
