I started with a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 3 coats of polish and a top coat of OPI Top Coat. On my index and middle finger I put down a base of OPI Alpine Snow just to see if it would make a huge difference.
In the sun you can't really tell the difference between the polish alone and the polish over Alpine Snow. I guess I picked the wrong shade to try it with, haha.
In the shade you can just barely tell that there isn't a smile line on the first two fingers but there is on the last two fingers.
Here's where the difference comes in - indoors with the flash. The nails (index and middle) with the Alpine Snow layer appear brighter (and a bit streaker) than the other two which are polish alone. So is it worth it for a layer of white under? Not for this color.
