OPI Funny Bunny is my favorite go to white nails polish. It's a sheer or what some refer to as a jelly polish. I love that it's a soft white not a white-out stark white. My hands have a lot of red/pink undertones and it's hard to find the right white polish to compliment them, Funny Bunny works well with my complexion.
Application is a dream, no streaking, just easy all the way! It looks beautiful even in one coat, two coats are very pretty and sheer, but my preference is to do three coats. I love it on square shaped nails with a bit of length. I can't stop looking at my hands, that's how much I love it. I've always loved that white nail look and just never could find the just right white. I thought it was East Hampton Cottage by Essie and wrote a review on that one too, but I passed that one on to my sister-in-law after feeling like it didn't play down the ruddy tone in my hands.
Some have compared this to Essie Marshmallow and think it's a dupe for OPI FB but I don't recall liking Marshmallow for a number of reasons. I feel like the OPI FB is glossier for one, 100% less streaky, the marshmallow was a nightmare in the application would get my world's worst application award. I thought the Marshmallow was a bit more stark and white-outy on my hands, I just didn't like it. I was stuck with it over Thanksgiving and felt a sense of relief when I removed it. OPI Funny Bunny is amazing and I would be devastated if it ever got discontinued. It's just so easy to apply and has a gorgeous white quality, it's white polish perfection in my book!
I bought Funny Bunny to use it as a white for a French Manicure. Unfortunately this polish only becomes opaque after about 3-4 coats and is then too thick to use as a French Tip. However, I did paint a thin coat of this polish over my whole nail, and I love it! One thin coat is just enough to make the tips of my nails look whiter without whitening the pinks of my nails too much. This nail polish is absolutely perfect if you are aiming for an American Manicure (which is a more natural looking French Manicure)
I'd definitely buy this polish again, as its incredibly versatile. The colour looks great after just one coat, and if you have a little more time, after 3 coats you are left with an opaque white nail. (Which is the perfect base for nail art!) Two coats of this polish also create a great white base for layering neon colours on.
There's no dupe on the planet (so far) to exactly match my HG favorite Bourjois Lissant Blanchissant which is long since discontinued (*weeping*), but OPI's Funny Bunny is a nice sheer white in the interim. I've tried a few others & this seems to be about as clean a white as I could find in a sheer polish. It isn't stark white but it isn't overly beige either. I'd call it eggshell white. (I'm very fussy about white polish being exactly pure white with glowy brightness to the color while being sheer & not chalky or opaque.)
Kinda streaky even on my small nails, so I have to apply quickly & carefully, & layer it on to fill in bald spots while building the color. To give it as clean a white look as possible, I use a blue-tinted yellow stain neutralizer as a basecoat. I marked that I'd buy this again, even though I'll probably never finish this bottle. It's a good polish, but I sorely miss my perfect Bourjois fave. *sigh*
The perfect white for a french mani (I use it with pinking of you). It's not too harsh, but it's definetely a very clean white. I've had it on for two days and it hasn't chipped at all.
I bought this after posting a query on a nail polish forum -
I asked if anyone could recommend a white nail polish by OPI that was a light milky white. I wanted a soft white that could be used to paint the whole nail - but was not a harsh as Alpine snow.
A user recommended Funny Bunny from the 2007 soft shades "Garden Party" collection. ("pretty party shades for nails now being served - you are invited!")
I bought the polish and it is exactly what I was looking for!
I have used it alone (you need 3 coats to get perfect coverage - a light creamy white) which makes nails look clean and polished
I have used it for a french mani (as above but white Alpine snow for the tips)
And it is also great to use as a base for colours that very very sheer, some examples that I have used this with - "I'm a Princess your not", "Princesses Rule", "Last Friday night", "Who needs a Prince"
This is a great staple in my polish collection, I have rated it a 5 for this reason and I will buy again.
thanks to the recomendations on the nailborad for a nice clean white polish i gave this a try, i like the finish two coats gives and i have not found it to be streaky. thanks mua
I love this color. I use 2 coats and it gives me a pretty sheer white look. Reminds me of Waltz by Essie.
Sheer buildable white creme. Love. 3 coats is best.
I was not to happy with this nail polish. I was hoping it would be more opaque, it looks ok if I use it on top of another polish but on its own does nothing for me.
I still like it and use it but it certainly does not make my top favourites list. The sad part is that I really wanted to like this color, on the bottle it is beautiful. I am still on the search for a pretty white, that is not completly white but that also isnt this sheer.
I bought this during an online polish buying binge, hoping this would be the answer to my search for a HG white tip polish. It's okay, but nothing great.
I was hoping to find something between stark white and sheer white for French Manicures. This color itself is nice and has not streaked too much for me-but only it's only useful if I want to put one coat of color over the white tips. Not quite what I was looking for. I will keep this one around for when I want very natural French manicures, but cannot imagine using it very often.
