Opallac French Affair – Gel Polish Swatch

Excuse the lateness in posting. Going through a hectic time and the chaos continues. Dang it. But here’s a lovely white gel swatch that brightens the week. It is French Affair from Opallac and is a highly pigmented polish to boot! Love this one. Have a look below.

Opallac - French Affair

Do you love white polishes too?


Name: French Affair – available here or select Priceline (AU) stores
Brand: Opallac
Collection: Core Collection
Colour (or family): White
Type & Finish: ‎Crème
Size: 7.5ml / 0.25oz

Formula & Application notes:
Smooth and glossy this is 2 coats. One thinner and the second medium thick. This white is very well pigmented. Almost comparable to some of the pro gel paints I’ve used, a lot more than other white gels I have seen.

I do love the starkness of this white, and actually wore it alone, sans nail art, for a while. No issue with application or curing for me. Given it’s opacity and the amount of pigment in it, it was less runny than other shades, which is something I actually prefer.

The Verdict:
The pigmented opacity of this gel makes it an easy choice for using in French Nail styles. It’s also a great option if you have trouble finding a white nail lacquer that isn’t chalky. They are out there but due to the pigments used, many tend to be drier than other colours. Using a gel gets rid of that problem, as the application process is smoother and the end results therefore nicer looking.

This is a solid pure white – great for many  skin tones dark, medium and light. The perfect option if you want to make your tan stand out. I definitely recommend this shade as it will be one that I myself will use regularly.

Dupes/Similar Lacquers:
Creamy whites are aplenty, so there is not really much to add here 😉
