NOTD // OPI Alpine Snow

Tuesday, April 29, 2014


This Nail of the Day seems rather fitting with the wintery weather we are having in Christchurch at the moment, although there is no snow it is definitely getting very cold! OPI's Alpine Snow is probably one of their classic polishes and is likely one that is over looked most of the time, purely due to all the other amazing shades and colours available. If you get beyond the 'twink on the nails' look, I think white nails are super classy, look very fresh and obviously go with everything.




I have a mini bottle of Alpine Snow from the OPI Take Ten Mini Set (review + swatches here) and will probably purchase the full size as white and black are probably the most essential colours to have in you nail stash (especially if you want to delve into some nail art). This went on slightly streaky on first coat, but the second coat smoothed everything out and left full opaque white nails. A top coat would help to even it out as well.

So what is your take on white nails? Would you rock them?

  4. White polish is growing on me! When I was very young I used to colour in my nails with white out/twink and it reminds me of that!!

    1. That is what I thought about white nails as well, but now I love them! (plus they make your hands look a bit more tanned, which is always a bonus!)

    1. This white is definitely not, it only needed two coats, which is pretty amazing for a white!

    1. I like getting the minis as well, pretty much the price of one bottle and you get to try out more colours, it's a win-win!
