Today is a comparison that I was super curious about. OPI Alpine Snow (their core colour white polish) up against the newly released My Boyfriend Scales Walls (Spiderman Collection).
Application: Equal. Slightly streaky on the first coat, both even and smooth by the last. Both dry relatively fast and glossy.
Coverage wise: Two thick coats OR three thin coats will give you full opacity for both of these polishes.
Colour: OPI Alpine snow is your standard bright white. I wouldn't call it chalky but it is definitely a pure white polish. On my skin it looks slightly stark. Not like I painted my hands with white-out or anything, its just noticeably brighter. My Boyfriend Scales Walls does have some slight grey undertones taking it out of the "stark" area and making it a little more flattering on my skin tone.
Index and Ring: Alpine Snow
Middle and Pinky: My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Verdict: They're not the same, but they are very similar. I imagine the differences may not be distinguishable on all skin tones, but it is on mine. I like them both though. Alpine Snow makes a great "eye-catching" white polish, and functions excellent as an underwear polish for neons. My Boyfriend Scales Walls will make a wonderful "wearable" white for me! I will let you decide if you need both!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this was helpful!
