China Chow was recently photographed wearing stark white, opaque nail polish. Here’s a closer look:

I feel like this is something I’ve done by accident before, when I wanted that lovely nude-ish color on my nails but with a hint of white, the kind of color of which Essie has about 300 different versions.

This, though, is clearly a deliberate White Out white. Glamour likes it, just so you know — they called it “a perfect color for this time of year” because it’s the holiday season and so, snow, and whathaveyou, and also because it’s a contrast to the dark colors we usually see at this time of year.

But I’m not sold. I think it looks kind of crappy. It just looks like it’s about to peel off, and while I appreciate the fact that it’s something different, it’s a little too femmebot for my style.

How do you feel?
