If you are looking for a bright white for your french manicure this is it! This is my HG for my french manicure. I prefer a very white tip though. Those who don't wouldn't care for this shade. Easy to work with and stays on my nails w/out chipping for about a week. This is good since I don't have fake nails it seems nailpolish only stays on about 3 days w/out chipping if I'm lucky. Pair this with Coney Island Cotton Candy for a beautiful french manicure.

Maybe it's because I just don't know how to paint my nails neatly, but this polish just ends up looking like a messy glop of goo on my nails. I can never get a smooth look. The first coast always looks really streaky and the second coat gives it a thick gooey look. And the polish takes one heck of a long time to dry. Not for the girl on the go. It's more of a salon kind of a polish - for professional use. I think I'll stick to one of those 60 seconds Maybelline stuff! This might be ok for french tips. But judging from the streakiness, I don't know. This was my first bottle of OPI and I'm a tad bit disappointed.

If you're looking for a "liquid paper" white, then this is your polish! I personally don't like it at all. It's definitely not something that I'd wear, I suit a sheer white - Alpine Snow is a bit too stark for my taste. However I would repurchase it because a lot of my friends/clients love 'white-white polish' for French nails.

This is very pretty! I was lookign for a bold opaque white colour for all over my nail. This is definetly it! It would also be great for french tipping. The only gripe i have about this is that its fairly streaky and you need a couple of coats before it looks great.

I didn't buy this to use as a French tip - the brush is way too wide for that job.
It IS streaky and takes several coats to look decent. Yes, I did expect better performance for an OPI.
All in all, if you're patient to wait for the coats to dry, it's fine. I didn't have any problems with chipping - it stayed on chip-free until I was ready to take it off several days later.

I usually LOVE OPI colours and perhaps I just got a bad batch but I found this colour very disappointing. The first coat is ALWAYS streaky and the second coat makes it very thick and prone to cracking. It also chips very easily and dries very quickly while on the brush so that it leaves you with lumps. Not very happy with this colour's performance at all.

This is THE white to use for a French Manicure: creamy, opaque, true white. Use a good top-coat and your mani will stay in place for over a week. I paint 2 coats of Alpine Snow on my tips (let it dry) and follow with OPI's Passion (a creamy transparent pink) to get a fabulous French on my hands and toes. I recommend this to anyone.

Great stark white for a certain kind of French manicure-- but why did they put a pro-wide brush on this one? I use guide strips only when I absolutely have to, and this one leaves me with no choice. Great wear, opaque in one thick coat-- but oh, the brush. (!)

Well, I went to ULTA the other day and purchased 3 OPIs because it was buy one get one free. I got Alpine Snow as one of my colors because I really needed that simple, stark white to wear for the summer. Soo, the lady who worked there threw them in a bag, and I came home and was excited to give this color a try. I open up the bag and my $7.50 nailpolish was spilled all over my other two polishes and my topcoat. I was beyond pissed and had to clean this polish off of everything. The bottle was cracked and I lost a lot of my brand new product. I was able to clean out an old Essie bottle and pour what was left of my nailpolish into it. While I had a tragic start to this polish, I used it and I loved it! It hasn't chipped too much at all and I've been wearing it as my pedicure color! I do enjoy this polish but I wish that the bottle hadn't cracked on me, as I had to use the Essie brush instead of the Pro-Wide brush (which I wanted to see how it worked)... Oh well, overall this is a pretty cool good color. A staple to my growing nail polish collection!

This is the shade to wear on nails and toenails this summer. A bright, stark white is so clean and really pops. It's in all the magazines as the new thing, and notice the opposite of the black polish from fall. Just be sure to wear it on short nails, fake nails went out for real about 5 years ago. No one wears them anymore! Sorry to say it's obvious on any woman and very out of date.

I use this for detailing my nails when I need a good strong white. When i do a manicure or french nails, I have to use a color with two coats or it's blindingly obvious I'm wearing fake nails.

A really versatile shade - looks great on its own (if my nails are short), as the tips for a French manicure or as the base for lighter colours. Find it's a little streaky, so I use 3 coats if I'm using the colour on its own. I find the new OPI brush a little wide for doing French manicures, though - difficult to get as much control.

Sorry to be the one who rains on the parade, but I just didn't like this at all. The colour is that kind of stark, blinding white that to me screams "fake nails!". I know it's entirely a matter of taste, and if you girls can work the crisp, obviously manicured look, then hats off to ya, but I can't. Also, maybe it was just the bottle I got, but I found it very streaky and goopy, and it took an eternity to set. Swedish Nude outperforms this on every level, in my opinion.

This is my staple for French manicures. This is the only colour I have tried for tips, and I have no desire to search for another. A true, crisp, classic white!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Perfect white tip shade for French manicures...applies perfectly and completely opaque, does not get thick and nasty. All around good product, and a staple for my weekly French manicures. It just doesn't get better than OPI Alpine Snow.

Alpine snow is a creamy true white colour. I use it for my nail tips when doing a french manicure. Love it :)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown

Alpine Snow, though an average and exceedingly stark, Plain-Jane white, receives a top rating of 5 for me for versatility alone. Alpine Snow is the perfect French tip as well as the perfect base for sheer colors which require coat upon coat to show. I've done a quick coat of Alpine Snow to prime my nails and boost the effect of the watery Gargantuan Green Grape. I've also used it as a base for Paris Couture for Sure to create a snowy, sparkly winter look. My favorite way to wear Alpine Snow is using it to polka-dot other polishes, namely pastels such as Essie Barbuda Banana and OPI Do You Lilac It?. I've also done it over a neon green creme. As with all of OPI's polishes, the quality is excellent and it wears quite well - in whatever manner I choose to wear it.
