Nail Fanatics ~ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On & ChG Broken Hearted

Hey dolls,
This is a late post, but the theme for last week in the Nail Fanatics forum was all white. I decided to use Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On. I've only used this polish for my stamping attempts and when doing an ombre mani. The formula is a little on the thick side compared to most of my other Xtreme Wear polishes. I think I may need to add some thinner to it. It was very streaky and balding in some areas with one coat, so 2 coats were a must. Here's a pic.
White On had a very stark contrast against my complexion. I think I may need a softer white to pull this look off. I had to go to my sorority's scholarship ball on Friday night, so I added China Glaze's Broken Hearted to give this mani some color. I added the crackle to just my thumb and pinkie for accents.


I absolutely love this look! Broken Hearted definitely took White On up a few notches. I got compliments all night on my nails!
What's your favorite white polish???

I love the pink crackle over white. I also love your dress it's a great color on you. I have issues with white I think like you said they can be so stark against your skin. I do like Essie Marshmallow it's more of an off white with a sheer/jelly finish.

Yeah, the pink crackle over white is great. I actually like the contrast of white on darker skin tones. I just don't have a lot of white nail polish. Boo.

And that dress looks great on you! Work it girl. :)

This is gorgeous, the nails, the dress, everything! My favorite white polish is "white widow" by urban decay. i've never been able to find another that wasn't so streaky and thick.

Thanks for all of the comments and compliments ladies!!! I got this dress for $30 from a BCBG outlet store...awesome find! The accent fingers really made this wearable for me.
@Stephanie...I just saw a swatch of Marshmallow; I want it NOW!!!
@Desire...I'm gonna look up Alpine Snow.
@BMR...I thought I would like it too! Maybe it was just the crappy formula that messed this up for me.
@Sarah...I'm gonna look up Urban Decay...too bad I cant get it on the ground though.

You look so pretty!

I'm not much for white polish. I'm always afraid it will look like I'm wearing white-out, but your nails look so awesome. I have "Broken Hearted" so I think I'll try it.
