OPI “My Boyfriend Scales Walls”

IMG_5084So you guys know that I have a love affair with white nail polish! If you don’t, well I’m a tad bit obsessed every single summer.  I think I can count on both hands how many bottles of nail polish I’ve ever finished, (and I mean really finished not just thrown out because it was too thick or frankened with, using up half the bottle), and half of them are bottles of white polish.  I’ve been through 2 this year alone, which is a big accomplishment for someone with a lot of polish! So when this polish first came out, I wanted it so bad but told myself, “Holly, you have 4 bottles of white nail polish right now, you don’t need an off-white.” I passed on this one over the summer, but as luck would have it, I was looking through the Ulta clearance section about 2 months ago and this was on sale for more than half off! I figured that fate was telling me that I needed this polish, and quickly snatched it up.  After wearing it, I’m mad at myself that I didn’t buy it when I really wanted it over the summer.

IMG_5087OPI “My Boyfriend Scales Walls” is a slightly off-white creme.  The polish has a slight grey tone to it, which you can only really tell when you have it next to a bottle of pure white.  But it really just looks like a softer white once its on your nails, rather than a stark “white-out” type of look that other white polishes give.

The formula on this polish is what made me fall in love.  I knew I was going to love the color because I love white nails, but this is one of the best formula “white” polishes I’ve ever used! If you like white as much as me then you know that a ton of white polishes are patchy, streaky, uneven and takes normally 3 coats.  This was fully opaque in 2 thin coats! Also, the formula is on the thinner side and not streaky or patchy at all.  It applied like a dream and dried pretty quickly as well.  I think I found my new favorite white, even though there is a slight grey tone to it.  It almost makes it look like snow on my nails and although this was released in the summer, it might turn into one of my favorite winter polishes!

What do you guys think? Do any of you have this polish? What are your favorite white polishes?

  1. oh em G! that looks insanely gorgeous on you!!! love love love it!! have you seen the new OPI Euro Central nude polish, the vampire is buff one. i need that one in my life!

    • there are so many from the euro central collection that i want! the nude one, the vampire one, and there are a few more too lol. last spring i didn’t pick up any spring polishes from opi and now i want polishes from the euro central and oz collections. have you seen the oz collection yet?

    • white and black are those types of colors that i always contemplate about. you don’t need more than one black creme but i always wonder about formulas and stuff. i really do like my boyfriend scales walls and thankfully i’m down to just 1 other bottle of white besides this one now

    • i’ve only ever tried 5 or 6 whites and i really like the sally hansen insta dry “whirlwind white” because its opaque in 2 coats and dries super fast. i’ve gone through 2 bottles of it already lol. but i know some people are opposed to using sally hansen since they aren’t cruelty free. the only white i’ve tried that is cruelty free is zoya “snow white” and i also heard that essie blanc is a good cruelty free white
