In the past year white manicures have been spotted on the catwalk and on celebrities. It can look stylish and fun so I was keen to try this trend, especially now summer is upon us. The only problem? I am paranoid about looking like the kid bored in class who went nuts with the liquid paper.
It’s hard to come across cruelty-free white polishes. So I was thrilled to see that Face of Australia has one.
Brand/Product Face of Australia Cool Cotton nail polish from their Colour Pro Enamel range.
Cost: $6.95 from Kmart, Big W and Priceline.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): FOA enamel is Australian-owned (yay), free from nasty chemicals and quick drying. But unfortunately, like Scream, Cool Cotton comes out streaky making it look more like liquid paper and less like a stylish opaque mani.
It’s also meant to be 3-in-1 without needing a base or top coat but I find if I don’t use Natio top coat it gets scratched.
I haven’t had much luck with FOA nail polish although I do use their nail polish remover. Our contributor Kate loves the colour Show Off and FOA has just released the Carnival range so maybe I should see if it’s a case of third time lucky. I’m afraid in the meantime this gets a big old NAY.
Have you tried a white mani before? How did it turn out?
