I Wonder: "What's your Favorite Matte White Polish?"

Hi all!

Happy Monday to all of you! I am having a bit of coffee addiction again because I am very sleepy! I was doing nail art for my mom-in-law the weekend and I've tried doing a really nice various designs using RED and White polish.

The RED polish was wonderful but when I topped the White polish for french tip, it went runny and turned to PINK although I waited for the RED polish to dry.

A question came out and yeah, I've bought a couple of matte white polishes in the past and a lot of them dried up because I ended up NOT using them because they don't work most of the time!

And the polish I've used was from Elianto.
I tried Sally Hansen's as well and it's still "runny".

That leaves to me..wondering.. "What's your favorite matte white polish that really works?"

Do share! I think I'm off to shop for a good one!

Stay Happy!


  1. naku na try ko na din yan :D

    pero ang hindi lang nag mix sa base color, na white n/p eh yung careline :D mura pa :D at yung sa caronia

  2. I have tried a bunch of white polished as well!! I used to use the one from Wet n' wild.. 99 cents - cheap and worked well. Hehe. I currently use Revlon. I want to find the perfect white one though.... still on the search.

  3. for me its parado [i posted a review on it before with its angled manicure tip] ^^

  4. ah! it's SO hard to find good white nail polish. i'm currently too lazy to look at what i use, mainly because i forgot which one i liked lol, but when i get around to using white i'll let you know. keep me posted too haha

  5. Aika, thanks sis! I'm going to try it! :)

    Miss Katin, I'll let you know if I find a good one and you too!

    Yumeko, oh no! Parado! LOL I'll keep my eyes open for that online :) thanks

    Yumyumsushi, I'm glad to know I'm not alone :) we'll keep each other posted then! Thanks

  6. Hey Nikki, I generally love my Bourjois white french manicure - it's matte and has a special tip that really helps with french manis. I also saw a tempting white nail polish at House of Etude - cheap and has a super fine brush. I haven't tried it out yet but I want to. It was sold out. =(

  7. Hi Nikki! I recommend Careline. It's not runny, and can cover completely in just 2 coats. Cheap too :)

  8. Kahani, Bourjois? I didn't even know they make polishes ! Thanks

    Anonymous, you are the 2nd one who says it, I'll definitely give it a try THANK! :)

  9. hey nikki! i have the face shop in white. i don't know if it's my application, but the first time i tried it, i didn't work well on me. i'm going to try again and let you know. :)

  10. Ive been using this brand EBE that I sourced myself. it never went runny. I did encounter the same prob as yours, and I found out the prob lies in the brush (not soft enough) but it could be bcoz of the red polish too. if you're willing to try, you can leave the red polish for abt 1 hour bfore applying the french polish. if it still runny then the prob most probably lies with the brush :) coz some polish takes longer to really really dry out (even when it appears dry)

  11. White Out works wonders! I don't really know if it's safe and you have to put clear over it so it doesn't gete dirty looking. I know I'm a cheater!

  12. I don't even own a matte white nail polish. Woooow, I would love one!

  13. Sab, let me know how The Face Shop goes! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Acutelife, good idea:) I'd try to just paint my base and leave it let's say a longer time then I'll do the nail art a couple of hours later! :) Thanks for the tip

    Kendall, it "bleeds" even before I put the clear coat :) Thanks dear

    B, lol I can't believe you don't have a white polish!! With your big polish collection? hehehe

  14. nikki, i have to agree with the other comments here. the white polish from careline is not runny. it comes out clearly with even just one coat. i'm sure there are other good white polishes out there, but careline is good especially because it's cheap :)

  15. ooppps! the face shop white nail polish is a bit watery as well. the color didn't show that much. ohwell.

  16. same problem :(
    tried sally hansen, the face shop and some dirt cheap brands...
    none succeed yet:((

  17. Musicalfanlovesminerals, ok, next shop will be Careline! thanks

    Sab, hahah thanks for letting me know, I think they are meant as base :)

    miRaCLe, I will share if I find any good ones :)

  18. I use the face shop's one and its really good!
    but don't get the one with the black cap!it's very streaky!use the white capped one!very pigmented!

  19. the skin food matte white works really well. =D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
