Wheel O8: White Cremes

One might think the 20 white cremes on wheel P2 would be sufficient to fill that slot in my stash, yet here I am with another full wheel. Some are true whites, some lean ivory, one is matte, one is satin finish. I could do classic French manis and pedis for a lifetime with these. For wheels like these, I think I need to look into switching out my lightbox background to something other than white.

1. The New Black unnamed mini (3 coats) [might be more at home on an ivory wheel]
2. Revlon white side of Nail Art Neon duos (2)
3. NYX White (2)
4. Ciate Paper Doll (3) [matte finish is quite nice on this]
5. Ciate Snow Virgin (2)
6. Nicole by OPI unnamed mini (3)
7. Urban Nails unnamed (3)
8. Milani High Speed Fast Dry White on the Spot (2)
9. Pure Ice Magic Base Coat (2)
10. Wet 'n' Wild Wild Shine A Blank Canvas (2)
11. L'Oreal A La Meringue (2)
12. Butter London Cotton Buds (2)
13. Studio M French Tip (2)
14. L'Oreal Steel Colour French Tip White (3)
15. OPI Angel With a Leadfoot (2)
16. Sally Hansen Insta Dri White Pick It Fence (2) [supposedly matte finish but dried satin, nowhere near as matte as #4]
17. Sally Hansen Insta Dri OMGhost (2)
18. Sinful Shine Wisp (2)
19. L'Oreal French Manicure French Tip White (3) [quite a bit thinner than I like to use for white tips, and the color is not quite white, though that may be due to age]
20. Cult Nails Tempest (2)

Bottles 1 through 5:

6 through 10:

11 through 15:

16 through 20:

Destash notes: The matte (4) stays for sure because it stands out in this sea of similarity. As for the others, I guess I'll decide based on bottle and brush shapes.


  1. Wow, that's a lot of whites! My favourite white for stamping is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Whirlwind White", and for painting the nails it's NailNation 3000's "White" :)

  2. Wow, what a great review! So, with previous wheel, you really own 40 white polishes, right?
    Btw, recently I made white polishes comparison in my blog. But they are totally different with yours.

  3. Only a fellow polishaholic understands how this is quite normal - hahahaha - but who cares, life is too short as it is, so have fun and enjoy when you can :)

  4. I love white on nails. Definitely.

  5. Great review Karen! I need to find a better white creme than the one I've got now, some good suggestions here!

  6. hehehe I was confused for a second. lol Amazing how different whites can be.

  7. O_o There are some whites more yellow than others! Interesting comparison btw! :P

  8. I've got a good few whites but none of these! :-)


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
