White On White is [surprise] a white creme shade, and it is in China Glaze's core collection. I know that white polish shades are very difficult to work with, but this polish stands out as the worst of the ones that I've tried. After three coats this polish is still uneven and very streaky; with regular creme polishes three coats is my max, but because white shades are pains I went to four coats = still horrible and it needed removing straight away as it is so gunky and unsightly. I've never managed to wear it properly the times I've applied it, as it is impossible for me to get it to look anywhere close to presentable.Even worse is the thin, streaky formula, that never levels out and floods the cuticles. Also: I found White On White to be slow drying after the second coat, and after topcoat and quick dry drops the polish still remains dentable for around two hours. Into the bin it goes, as I can't get it to work and I don't want to give anyone such a hideous product.For a white polish I recommend OPI Put A Coat On (it's a white base, but it is fully opaque in 1 to 2 coats), or Pretty Serious Presence (takes 2 coats rather than being a 1 coater as advertised, but it has a nice smooth & long-wearing formula).

As mentioned in previous reviews white is known to be a difficult color to work with. White on White is no exception. As the name would suggest this is a pure white colored cream finish. I decided to use this as part of my Halloween nails this year.Unfortunately despite the fact that this bottle is over a year old the formula was very thin and runny. It is a major flooder and difficult to work with even though I wiped the brush several times per nail. It still ran down the brush onto my nail flooding my cuticles and overflowing onto my fingers themselves.The first coat was streaky and patchy. With the 2nd coat it reached full opacity and smoothed out for the mos part. It still didn't look very good though as it was a bit streaky. As I was using a topper with this one I decided not to do a 3rd coat.White on White comes packaged in the standard ChG bottle w/the standard brush. Though the polish isn't my favorite because of the issues mentioned above, the packaging is fine.Ulta had this one on sale last summer so I think I paid about $5.00 for this. You can get ChG online for less per bottle but for a brick and mortar store this wasn't a bad price.I would not repurchase White on White. The formula just isn't that good though I do like the overall color. If you are interested in a white polish I would suggest you give this one a pass and look for another brand.

I bought this hoping it would be an improvement over other whites that I've tried and been disappointed with. It has a thin workable formula but it pretty much performs like most whites - streaky and needs 3 coats, dries to a chalky finish. I got this in a set with 3 other polishes that I like so it wasn't a total loss but I'm still looking for my perfect white polish.

I've been polishing my nails white since forever, so I've used/tried countless different brands for white polishes. Believe me when I say ALL white polishes are going to be somewhat streaky & need at least 2-3 coats. It's not because the formula is bad, it's because that's just what the color white does in general. It's probably if not the hardest, one of the hardest colors to make opaque with one coat...it's pretty much impossible to find that in a white nail polish. That being said, this white was no different (but I already know this from experience with this color, so I expected that realisticly). The only effective way I've found to help this problem, is to first paint a base coat in a neutral color...once dry, start painting over it with the white. It will be less streaky & become opaque easier/faster. This white is a great formula (for a white). It dries pretty fast & doesn't chip too easily. I would definitely buy this again. Only thing is you have to understand what to realisticly expect when you use a white polish....IT WILL be somewhat streaky, they ALL are.

This was my first white nail polish. I got this in the mini size and couldn't wait to use it, knowing China Glaze was a good brand I expected it to be a good quality white. I was wrong. I don't like the formula at all. It's thin, streaky and clumpy. It's VERY streaky, and VERY thin. It takes me about 3 coats to get it a nice solid white color and its really clumpy. Even after the second coat I can still see streaks. Not worth the money!

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 cremes, but I got this for nail art (as a base and as an accent). I also wanted to try real, old-fashioned, full-on French tips. For that purpose, I have not been disappointed with this, but I can't imagine wearing this on its own. This can absolutely be streaky, particularly for the first coat. I find this has complete opacity in two coats, and a nice, creamy, bright finish, and by the second coat, the streakiness (which isn't always apparent) has sorted itself out. It can still be a little draggy, though, and some nails may need three coats to have a truly even finish.The colour is definitely white-white-white, and the name is entirely appropriate. It's actually somewhat stark because it is so very white. 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. This makes a good "undies" layer for neons or other polishes where you want the colour to really pop.I do find this polish to be pretty awesome for stark, white French tips, with good coverage in two swipes and the very bright, unmistakably white tips of a classic French manicure. (That look, unfortunately, doesn't really work on me, but this polish definitely delivers!) If you like that look, this polish is a great choice.

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?
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
