OPI Alpine Snow (matte)

Alpine Snow (matte) is a stark white polish and was a bitch to pain. Three coats were needed here not because the pigmentation was thin but because it streaked so badly. I couldn’t paint this at all, so Alicia did this on her own. She just applied the lacquer very quickly in quick globs because it dried almost instantly. I bought this thinking I could use it for French tips but it’s rather impossible.

The white polish was great for layering. I prefer the look with Snow Globe, a clear polish with irridescent rainbow-coloured glitter pieces.

You can also alternate Alpine Snow with a black polish. Amanda wore this to Halloween.
