My Epic Quest: The Search for the Whitest Nail Polish! ♥♥

For the longest time, I was on the hunt for the perfect white nail polish. I know, I'm kinda late on the trend, but I've taken my time on this! I bought one Essie white nail polish in Waltz (shown right) because I wanted it mainly for zebra print nails ( :D ) but it turned out to be not what I expected.

Here's a shot of the zebra nails I did using Waltz. You probably can't see due to the black lines, but the white did not fully cover my natural nail colour, and some of the nails were streaky.

Overall? Not a fan.

So I resolved not to buy another white polish before I did my research. I wanted a really true white, and most of the whites I found were more of a light bone colour, on top of not being too pigmented.

Finally, I found this beauty:

Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear nail colour in #300 White On.

I think I'm in love.

Two good coats of this baby and it looks like I've put white out on my nails (Oh, high school.) and I love it. I've always love the Xtreme wear line from Sally Hansen, it also completed my quest for the perfect blue with Blue Me Away. What'll they do next?! :D

I'm so glad I've finally completed my Quest for the Whitest Nail! I'll be posting a Mondrian grid inspired nail of the day soon using this white, I'm really excited! Stay tuned, and be sure to follow my blog or subscribe on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/RivuletsBeauty (:

Lots of love comin your way!
