Pro White: Too Good To Be True

I received the Alessandro Pro White nail polish in August’s Glossybox and grabbed at it gleefully. A super easy product, one which has achieved cult status in Germany, that will instantly make my nail tips look whiter without the fiddlyness of drawing them on French style. Yes please!

Disappointingly, it was a bit of a let down. Perhaps I was expecting too much. Maybe I’d been a bit TOO excited. After all surely if some genius had invented such a product it would’ve been on the news? But I thought, with this being so crazy popular in Germany, perhaps the Germans had been keeping it all to themselves.
The Pro White describes itself as an ‘Optically brightening effect nail polish with anti-yellowing formula for radiant white and gleaming nails.

However, rather than making my nails look naturally white and healthy, they just looked kind of blue. Purpley blue. Sort of violet. Especially in day light. Not a great look.

Obviously I understand that in order to profess to make your whites whiter there’d have to be some tint of blue in there somewhere but I didn’t actually notice my tips looking any whiter. Just the shiny purple colour of the main part of my nail.

So there you go; miracle product it isn’t. In my opinion anyway. No improvement to the appearance of my nails whatsoever. If you want white tips you’ll just have to fork out for a French manicure, at least then you can guarantee the results. It’s like my mum always said, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
