OPI

Birchbox Breakdown

Few cosmetic savvy women wouldn’t agree that we each need at least one bottle of pure white polish in our stash of lacquers. Whether it’s simple French tips or a bolder treatment across the entire 10 (or 20), there’s always a place for this basic (read: essential) crisp color. Part of OPI’s Soft Shades Nail Lacquer Collection, Alpine Snow is a particularly fresh—and high-quality—way to get the look.

How it Works

The opaque lacquer glides on without fanfare, thanks to the exclusive ProWide™ brush, which features stacked bristles for more thorough application. Spreading quickly and evenly, the salon-quality polish dries with a streak-free finish.

How to Use

Start with a base coat, then apply two layers of polish to clean, dry nails. Follow with a top coat for a long-lasting finish.

Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Propyl Acetate, Tosylamide/Formaldehyde Resin, Isopropyl Alcohol, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Triphenyl Phosphate, Ethyl Tosylamide, Camphor, Stearalkonium Bentonite, Diacetone Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Benzophenone-1, Citric Acid, Dimethicone, CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide).

Great Cover

When I first used this product I did only one coat, but it seemed to chip after four days, so the next time I used it I applied two coats and it made it last around ten days. What made me not give it five out five was because I felt it took forever to dry, but then again I am very impatient person. Otherwise it is a great product.

OPI wins at all colors

So I really don't like white nail polish - even Essie makes it look like white out on my pale hands! But there's something about OPI and how smoothly this one goes on. I received it for a Christmas girl in 2014, and I was more than impressed how it isn't flakey and how wonderfully the color goes on. I usually do one coat - I'm pale so it isn't a color than necessarily stand outs on my fingernails, but it made them look sleek, much like getting it done professionally. I love OPI (the price not so much) and I usually use it when I get my nails done once every few months. If you like white nailpolish, this is an easy go too!

Snow White Perfection

It's no surprise that Alpine Snow by OPI is the best pure white matte polish ever. OPI nail polish is pretty much my go-to for home mani's and pedi's. What's special about this white nail polish is the brush. It's wider than mostly every other brand I've used, which makes it so easy to paint your own nails in three quick swipes. It dries to a lovely glistening matte white. It never looks clumpy, like you painted your nails with Whiteout. It's also amazing as a base coat under bright colors to really make the colors pop!

Nice Color

I really like the color to this nail polish. I usually go for tans or grays but this color is nice without being too bright.

Greats for French tips

Nice opaque white that is perfect for French tips. Opi has great staying power. I have also used this white under a sheer shimmer for a nice effect - worth having a bottle in your polish stash.

Great!

I really like this color because it's such great quality and it is very pigmented. I shows up exactly as it is.

Wonderful, classy, and long lasting!

I used this nail polish the other day when I got my nails done and honestly I never use any other brand BUT OPI.

It last a long time, and in the field that I work in, my hands are constantly doing things that could get my nail polish chipped or scratched, or scuffed up pretty bad. This nail polish LASTS!

Best white polish ever

Goes in smooth and shiny! It last a pretty long time as well. I use it for French tips. Opi is always a great nail polish brand in my book.
