Now, I didn't test every single white nail polish in the world, cause, well, I'd be dead by the time I finished. I know there's a few other 'popular' or highly coveted white nail polishes out there that I just didn't have time to source out and include (that and I'm lazy).
BUT I do think this video reveals a white nail polish trick we never thought much about before!!
The winner is Color Club's 'French tip', and the name says it all: It's a french tip nail polish and thus the consistency is a lot thicker and designer to be opaque in one coat for easy french tip manicures! Major DUH moment for me right here.
I do notice that after using it many times (you've seen how many times I reach for it as my base polish if you watch any of my YouTube tutorials...), it gets thicker and trickier to work with. When this happens, I just add a couple of drops of nail polish thinner (NOT ACETONE/NAIL POLISH REMOVER) and shake the bottle up. This restores the fluid consistency.
Here's all the white polish hopefuls in order of appearance in the video:
- Cult Nails 'Tempest'
- Pure Ice 'Superstar'
- Inglot ???
- Seche ???
- Mundo de Uñas '1'
- Color Club 'Blank Canvas'
- Essie 'Blanc'
- OPI 'Alpine Snow'
- Orly 'Pointe Blanche'
- Color Club 'French tip'
Hope this helps you in your search for the perfect white polish!
