It was then that one of the girls asked me for a recommendation. She’s looking for the perfect white polish. Something that isn’t overly pearly and “grandma-ish” or chalky and white-out white-ish. I’m sure you can guess where my mind immediately went. China Glaze White-Kwik-Silvr. Possibly the best white polish EVER created.

White-Kwik-Silvr comes in the amazingly unique glass flecked formula that China Glaze is famous for. It’s sparkly without being a glitter bomb and opaque with three coats. I wish I could say two but you can’t have it all. So here you go Steph. I know I linked you to my old review but here’s a full manicure look at this stunning beauty.

    Such a coincidence! I actually took this out last week and was thinking about what a great color it was! I think it would have made a great roller derby name too…

    Do you happen to still have this bottle? I was wondering what the code number was on the bottom of the bottle (normally 3 to 4 digits). I have the bar number (72038) but not the code. Thank you!

      Of course I have the bottle. It’s my all time fave white polish. Unfortunately, mine doesn’t have the code number you speak of. Mine is from before the formula and label switch
