Manicure Monday: OPI in Alpine Snow

I've been looking for a great white polish that doesn't look like white-out. I've heard great things about this one particular polish from OPI from YouTube. For that reason, I decided to purchase this polish.
This is Alpine Snow. Since I did a thorough review of OPI in Next Stop...The Bikini Zone, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website describes it as "fresh, crisp white, perfect for French-look tips." I definitely agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. This is my favorite brush. It's wide and long enough to paint quickly.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of OPI in Alpine Snow, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm a huge fan of OPI brushes. They're a perfect width and length for me personally. I rather paint quickly on each nails than take my time doing many strokes. That's just my personal taste. With that said, the wide brush makes it easy to paint around the cuticles. Secondly, the consistency is medium and I was impressed it didn't paint like white-out. Most white polishes paint and feel like white-outs or at least from my experience. That's not something I was looking for. It went on smoothly and there were no streaking and bubbles. Third, white polishes are in throughout the year. It's a gorgeous white that doesn't look like white-out. It's a great polish to paint the whole nail or partially. Lastly, this is where I got disappointed. Most OPI polishes last five days on me. This didn't even last two days. It started chipping slightly on the sides of the tips on the second day. Then it got bigger and bigger with each day. On the other side, I didn't see any shrinkage whatsoever.

Would repurchase: No.
