I love china glaze and i love when a nail polish is easy to use and has a really good formula that i dont have to stress about because i'm not the best nail polisher. This one is average, not as good as "sexy in the city" but definitely better than sally hansen or in my experience, OPI. I don't think its the best white i could fine but then again this is the first white polish ive ever had so maybe im wrong. I havent tried it on french tips but ill update if i do.

Hands down the best I have used for French tips, flowers, decorating your nails, or if you just want to paint your nails this color I highly recommend this product and I love using it it rarely chips and is lightweight. I make it a point to get any china glaze nail polish they are such beautiful colors and so fulfilling they can be a bit pricy but are totally worth it!

I'm not a big fan of white, really, but I got this for nail art (as a base and as an accent). I also wanted to do real, old-fashioned french tips. For that purpose, I have not been disappointed.
I find this has reasonably good coverage in two coats, and a nice, creamy finish. The formula is smooth and I find it easy to apply. It can be a bit streaky, but I have never, ever, EVER found a white nail polish that wasn't, so I can't really fault this polish for being somewhat streaky. Still, most of the time, with careful application, I can get a complete, opaque cover with two coats (key: careful, deliberate application).
The colour is definitely white-white-white, and the name is entirely appropriate. It's actually somewhat stark because it is so very white. This is so white it makes my pale skin look positively tan (which is not what I want it for, but it does have that effect).
As a base for nail art, it works very well, although I do like to cover most of it because it is so very white and looks a bit odd with my pale skin.
I also sometimes use this to lend brightness to other layers. I recently tried a coat of this under a medium silver and got toenails the colour of aluminium foil, very light-bright silvery. (That wasn't the look I was actually wanting, but it was interesting to see it.) It also works to make other colours a bit brighter. I've used it under red, orange, and yellow to make them really pop (was doing a "Skittles" pedicure).
I do find this polish to be truly awesome for french tips, with good coverage in two swipes and the very bright, unmistakably white tips of a classic french manicure. A layer of sheer polish over tips done in this polish works very well.
I would buy this again, although it does go a long, long way, and it'll be a long time before I need to do that...

China Glaze's White on White is a basic white nail lacquer from their core collection. I grabbed this polish a few months ago, I'd never had a white polish before and thought it would be handy to have around. China Glaze is by far my favorite nail lacquer line. The China Glaze formula contains "China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain it's shiny finish. All China Glaze polishes are free of formaldehyde, dbp, and toluene, though they do contain formaldehyde resins. I bought my bottle of White on White at Sally's Beauty Supply for $5.25. China Glaze lacquers contain the standard 5fl oz (14ml). This is a cruelty free brand that makes their enamels in America.
China Glaze polishes come in a round glass bottle with a tall, black plastic, texturized cap. The China Glaze logo is embossed on the top of the cap. The logo can also be found on the front of the bottle along with the product name. Some company info and warnings were included on the back of the bottle. The shade name and full ingredient list are on a sticker on the bottom of the bottle. White on White's brush seems a little think than other China Glaze brushes, which apparently have 440 bristles each. This particular brush is quite thin, long, and flat with an average amount of flexibility.
I'm going to spend about as much time describing the color of White on White as I did choosing it. It's white. Plain, stark white. Cream finish. No yellow, blue, or grey tinge. Its basic and needs no further explanation. I will say that the creamy finish is particularly glossy and shiny. I hate the look of plain, stark white nail polish, so I much prefer to use this color for nail art or layering under glitter or crackle polishes.
As you can expect from any white polish, White on White's application is pretty troublesome. This polish needs at least three thick coats or five thin ones to achieve opacity, and we all know what happens when you need that much lacquer to get full coverage. A goopy, streaky finish and short wear. I usually get fantastic wear from China Glaze polishes, some last me over a week, but White on White only gives me two fays of wear tops. Unfortunate. This is the first China Glaze polish to disappoint me both in application and wear. It's not all bad though, White on White is easy to take off.
I have mixed feelings about China Glaze's White on White nail lacquer. Its a good, plain white for nail art, but it just doesn't last for me. Application takes too long for my liking, because it needs to be applied thicker than I prefer to, it takes forever to dry. I'm not sure if I should even be complaining though, does a good white nail polish even exist? It doesn't seem like it. I don't recommend this polish and I more than likely won't buy it again. Can I get some recommendations for a good white polish, if there is one?

I needed a good white to use as a base in some nail art designs and I went for China Glaze, assuming it would be a good choice. The formula is hard to work with but after a few coats it looks fine. The polish doesn't last very long at all and is hard to do nail art with because you need so many coats to make it look decent.

I've been looking for a good white to use as undies for my neons and pastels. I got Essie marshmallow cause this was always sold out at my Sally's. As soon as I saw this in stock I grabbed it. It went on a lot easier than Essie. I think I've found the white I was looking for. It was opaque in 2 coats and had no vnl. There was no pooling by my cuticle and the brush worked perfectly with my nails. This is on my re buy list and I'll be buying a backup when it's back in stock.

Great nail polish but I find that it goes on quite sheer and can take me at least three coats (with base coat) to get a finish that's true to colour and opaque enough to my liking. The formula is great though - hardly chips when used with the seche vite topcoat unless I pick at my nails (bad! I know) and is super long wearing. The brush is nice as well - spreads evenly and doesn't streak or come apart either.
I've also tried using it as a base colour for my other polishes but it's not so great since you have to do so many coats to get a decent white to work with. However, on it's own, it's a brilliant true white.
Will buy again because I love the colour on it's on and it lasts so long.

Like many of the other reviewers, I do have to admit that upon first application this colour is very streaky. Add to the fact that my brush has a few loose hairs, it's a bit of a problem. BUT, after applying my second coat I've not had any issues. It smoothed right over and gave me a good enough consistency to work with.
I do have a glitter colour on top and a ridge filler as a base coat but everything has worked fine for me.
It's my first white polish but it's not been bad thus far.

I've found all whites to be difficult to work with this formula works pretty well considering. It's chipped quite a bit only after two days. Nothing like the quality of an (OPI) polish.

I needed a white in a pinch to do some nail art, so I figured China Glaze would be a safe bet - not so much. This polish is very finicky, as whites often are.
The formula is goopy and it goes on streaky and patchy. I had to wait about 10 minutes between coats to avoid dragging, and I needed over 4 coats for opacity. I just don't have the patience for this polish, but I'm not sure other whites are that much better.

Typical China Glaze, chips easy but looks gorgeous after multiple coats. Still better then most ds polishes though. Essie Blanc is better.

This is the perfect nailpolish to put under another sheer nailpolish. Yes it is thin and streaky but when you`re putting it under a sheer nailpolish it doesn`t really matter.
Love this, will defintely buy again

This is the most perfect snow white. The formula is perfect. I got an opaque white in just 2 coats. No streaks at all. I was nervous to use white as I thought it would be streaky and difficult to cover the nail but I was really impressed. I love China Glaze polishes, and this one was another winner. Not sure why so many people had problems with, this stuff was fantastic.

No, just no. This is probably one of CG's worst colors. It takes 4 coats to get it opaque and smooth, mostly because the formula is a streaky mess. I wouldn't touch this.

I love the color, but the consistency of it is horrid! It's runny and streaky, AND goopy. I didn't think a nail polish could be runny and goopy, but this one is. I had to do 3 coats to get a good color, and even with a fast dry coat I sat an hour waiting for it to try. Even after waiting so long, the first thing I got up and did it dented and smudged all to heck. I threw this polish in the trash.

I used 3 thin coats when I was using this for a base for neon dots. I have used 2 thin coats under water marbling. I always have a hard time with white polishes anyway no matter what the brand but I like china glaze polishes and this lasted for over a week without a chip.

First off, I LOVE the colour of this polish.... However, like many of the other reviewers have said, this is streaky and thin. I need 3-4 coats to make this look nice and then I have to sit and do nothing for an hour while it dries... If I do anything before that time is up, the polish smudges.It lasts for about 3 days before this weird 'crackling' happens on the surface of the polish. It looks like shattered glass.

I normally love china glaze products, but this one was a little of a let down. it was streaky and runny, but on another note i do like the actual shade of white

I use my China Glaze White on White for French tips. I find the formula easy to work with and get a nice evenly colored line in just one swipe. This polish will last about a week on me (not including tipwear). Another hit from China Glaze for me.
