The Zoya Matte Velvet Lacquer in Aspen is a shimmery white with a matte finish. It applies almost opaque with one coat, and fully with two. Aspen is not streaky or patchy like most white polishes are. Since it's a matte polish, it dries really quickly, which I absolutely love. It's a really pretty alternative to a classic cream white, and will be a great choice for the winter.

OPI Alpine Snow is a true white creme. It has by far the best formula of any white polish I have ever used and I love it! The polish is not thick or goopy whatsoever and applies just as nicely as any other color would. As a base for another color, you could probably just use one coat, but on it's own I suggest two coats, which it what I used in the photos.

The Orly Nail Lacquer in Peaceful Opposition is a milky white polish with silver square glitter. Peaceful Opposition applied surprisingly easy and actually dried quite quickly. With three coats, Peaceful Opposition is still not quite opaque, but I really like the look of it being slightly sheer. You can get a lot more glitter to apply if you leave the polish upside down for a little bit, but I didn't realize this until I had already finished painting my left hand (the one shown in the photos). Peaceful Opposition is such a unique, pretty polish and I would suggest it to anyone!

White On by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear is a white cream in the Xtreme Wear's permanent display.
I think that White On is a great choice for a bright, opaque white wether you like white polish on it's own, like I do, or if you need it for specific nail art. I also think this one is a great choice because it's very inexpensive.
White On is best applied with medium to thick coats, but the formula is not goopy. One coat of White On was a little patchy in some places, so it took 2 coats to even the color out.
