White Nail Polish - Love it or Hate it

I tried my Boys in the Bottle brand nail polish in Bobby Sox today, which is a solid white.

Although I did a horrible job painting my nails (as usual), I really like the color. It's very mod.

Not counting the fact that I can't paint my nails or that my fingers look strange, stubby, and misshapen in this photo, what do you think about white polish in general?

And don't worry about hurting my feelings. I won't get offended, I'm just curious.

This looks pretty in the picture, but I don't think I would like it on me. I recently bought a Boots white nail polish (target) intended for french tips I think, and it has a creamier tint which I like.

I don't like a totally white polish. I like a little subtler, like creamy or with a hint of pink. All white does look like White Out to me if it's done the wrong way. Oftentimes it is, too.

I like it; I can't pull the look off well because I have fair skin however when skin has a glow or a tan to it - the white looks great. It stands out yet in a clean and simple way. When I get a chance I will have to try Boys In A Bottle; the colors come out great.

I love it! I did my toes and fingers with Sally Hansen Salon in "All the White Stuff," and so many people in the office have commented on how cool it looks! It's a very clean look. :) Boys in the Bottle looks great on you, Whip!!

I love it!! If you have a nice tan it looks cool..a really good almost white polish is OPI's "matched luggage"...I currently have it on my toes.

I want to try it on my toes. I never paint my fingernails. I'm too lazy for the up keep and close-toed shoes are an instant fix!

I hate it. I think it's because it brings out the red in my hands more, and that still reminds me of White Out.

I bought a really sheer and shimmery white and it doesn't look too bad. I still don't prefer it over other colours though. I find it looks good in magazines (because they can retouch the flaws), but in real life its harsh.

It looks great on you Whip! I'm not sure that I could ever pull it off so I chose undecided; I guess it would look okay paired with the right outfit.

I'm not into it myself ... I'd rather leave the white as an accent like in French Tips

I wore white nail polish a few weeks ago and somebody asked if I'd painted them with white out... But I really don't care, I still think its an awesome statement. I love funky nail colors!

I remember wearing white nails when I was 13 or so. I wonder how it would look now, but like someone else said above, it depends a bit on your skintone I suppose.

I like it when it's more on the sheer side, and the pic looks great. I think you can definitely rock it!

Ooh I love it! I read somewhere (maybe Allure) to not use a base coat with white polish to avoid streaks.

I don't normally like WHITE white polish, but it looks nice in the picture. I'm a fan of the creamy off/white, though. Wear that a lot.
