Simply White - OPI Time-less is More

I know MeganChair already posted her OPI Time-less is More manicure, but I wanted to show you mine as well!

I've noticed a lot of people talking about this one lately for whatever reason, and it inspired me to whip mine out again. (Plus its gotten hot here again - what!? - and something lighter seemed suitable...)

This one reminds me of freshly-laundered pillows or billowy clouds - its definitely white, but its a jelly so it never looks chalky. You do have to use quite a few coats to achieve the look above (I believe I used 4 here), but I really think that the soft, clean payoff is worth it! The OPI ProWide brush (aka my lovah) makes multi-coat application pretty simple.

Time-less is More was recently discontinued by OPI, so I've seen it on clearance in quite a few places. (I bought a back-up for dirt cheap just in case!)

Sometimes less really is more, and all you want to do is wear a simple white T-shirt, stud earrings, put your hair in a ponytail, and walk out the door. I think this polish exemplifies this feeling perfectly. :)

This looks like the perfect white! I'll keep an eye out for it on Trade Secret's clearance table next time I get a chance.

Ofice friendly color,nice one :-)

Katherine said...

What about pants?? :-P I love this color. I have Essie Waltz, which is similar but maybe not quite as opaque.

Megan Harmeyer said...

That's such a great color. What is it about the OPI names? I get it, it's just that it seems like they're trying too hard to be funny.

@Zara - Yes, do! I really enjoy it!

@rmcandlelight - Exactly - its all squishy and lovely but not too harsh, but really clean. And thanks!!

@nail crazy - Yup! Sometimes I want or need to be less 'nail crazy'! ;)

@Katherine - Pants?! Who needs pants...you've got on earrings! Waltz is a lot like this one actually - it will also go a little more opaque with a bazillion coats :)

@Megan Harmeyer - You know, some days I think the silly names are cute and charming, and some days they just annoy me... All of the ones with "Suzi" in the name bother me every day.

I bit my nails for 25 years and have been stopped now for about 6 months, my nails are surprisingly strong and I'm just starting to get into polishes.

I have never commented before but do read this blog and my jealousy has finally got the better of me - how do you all achieve such perfect mani's?

Is there a trick to getting that crisp edge around the 'finger' end of the nail, or is it just practice?

I'd love to know your secrets!

I agree with Zara, it's like the perfect white!

kittytokaren said...

@hermetic - Yes, you do! There is something very soothing about it...

@Mei - Hi there new nail friend!! Congrats on quitting the biting habit - I know that is a hard one to break. I was never a biter, but a chronic cuticle-picker, and it was a tough habit to break. Polishes are a great way to keep up your new and good habits! There are definitely tricks to getting your polish neat - part of it is practice, part of it is "clean-up". The lovely MeganChair posted her classic clean-up tutorial here:


I do have to say though, sometimes I don't need to do this. With some polishes and brushes, I can get neat application without cleaning up at all - practice makes perfect! But most times I just swipe the brush around the edge to crisp it up. I'm no super expert though - with runnier polishes I often do a lot in clean-up! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!!

@Aurora - I agree with both of you! It's my fav :)

where have you seen this beauty on sale? i'd love to get my hands on it (especially at a discount!)

Very pretty clean manicure. I like the ProWide brush, aka your "lovah". I'd add a nice pair of well fitting jeans and it's a perfect look.
