 What Nail Polish Colours do you LOVE?

  1 2 3 4

Totally random useless fluffy thread topic, so I apologize to those who want some substance. Sorry, I'm all out (mostly because I have been thinking about this all week link to a post of mine )

So, since I am at home for a couple more day, and DH thinks that I am at home "laying around all day eating bon bons", I thought hey why don't I paint my nails and live up to that vision of his.

Right now I am wearing a Taupe colour from Revlon called Graceful , which is totally out of my comfort zone (love bright colours), but I like it smile


And ... teeth I took out my bag of nail polish and counted them all, then gave up.

.... and if that isn't enough, I have a whole shoe box full of more. Somewhere. I don't know where teeth

So what are the rest of you wearing/like ???

My current fave is Essie "Lady Like"... mostly because I only get to do my nails on weekends, but that one generally lasts most of the week before chipping noticeably and looking like crap.

But my nail polish collection might just rival yours... and that's after a major purge a few years back when it was 3 times the size blush

I have a bit of an addiction *laugh* My collection ranges from electric blue, an array of purples, blacks (yes, multiple), several blue-reds, pinks, neutrals, sheers, nudes, a couple of whites, even a couple of greens (forest and olive).... but not the oranges or neons that're apparently popular at the moment.

I like variations of pinks and purples (as far as dark almost black purple).

I do not like green, blue, orange, or red. I also don't like chunky sparkle ones. I don't mind a little glitter though.

I like gold and silver at Christmas time.

The light grey / taupe colours that are in right now are growing on me.

On my fingers - I like either a natural or a french.

On my toes - I like pretty much any color, but I tend to gravitate towards vibrant reds/pinks/purples. I think I have "I'm Not Really
a Waitress" on my toes right now.

I joined one of those box of the month clubs (you know - like the sample ones?) but nail polish and it's kind of completely awesome. I mean, grown up mail is usually full of junk and bills so to be surprised with a pretty black box full of fun polish (and sometimes, samples or a chocolate or body scrub) is great fun.

Anyway - I got this color, and I normally reserve bright colors for pedicures but there's something about it that makes me smile - super saturated fuchsia (not my fingers):



Actually, I've also gotten a deep burgundy that I LOVED, and really good red, a liquid silver that was really pretty (instead of tacky) because of the shade, a shimmer violet color, a really true, fun purple that's currently on my toes because it feels springy and fun and a few others.

I've totally enjoyed it because I've tried (and loved) lots of colors I normally wouldn't look twice at.



Otherwise, I like neutrals:

OPI You Don't Know Jacques
OPI for Sephora Metro Chic
Essie Mink Muffs

Or pale pinks:

Essie Mademoiselle
OPI Bubble Bath

I love an OPI colour called Jewel of India - one of my all time faves

for my toes it has to be - OPIs I'm Not Really A Waitress

Old colours but my nail polish hoard is just too big to jusitfy buying new stuff - well except the crackles! I LOVE those! And maybe the occasional sparkly colour. Well and maybe something that looks really good under the crackle. And perhaps....... LOL

I have a slight nail polish obsession a the moment. I'm at work and don't have access to my collection but here are some that come to mind:

Just got his yesterday: OPI Chatters me up:


My classic fav: OPI I'm not really a waitress


Blah, I really can't remember any names at the moment. I have a lot of Chi polishes; I really like them.

I'm heading off to my Pinterest board.

Does anyone have any Pinterst images or any images that show a good way to store a ahhh, ahem, ample collection like mine teeth
The ratty old ziplock holding my opi colours and the shoebox holding the rest of my addiction just isn't cutting it.

I used to keep my nailpolish in the fridge, until DH ousted it out.
Is this just an old wives tale? What is the best way to keep it? (as I have some old bottles).

I am becoming obsessed with nail polish.

I am currently wearing OPI - French Quarter for your thoughts



OPI - Don't know Jacques



OPI - Ski teal we drop


For a really nice pinky non-color or a french I like OPI - Mimosas for the Mr. and Mrs.



And last week I wanted something really fun and chose this:

OPI - Fly

Okay, crappy pictures but these are some one's Christmas mystery box for $19.99 (with a Maven coupon code):





They just did Valentines mystery boxes (they sent an email to Mavens with a code) and I actually got one this time (okay...I got two...) and I cannot wait to get them.

My current favs:

Break a Leg Warmer (Sephora) I wear it with a matte top coat. Love it.


Gosh Miss Mole (Shoppers) Love this with the matte top coat as well.


OPI Affair in Red Square


OPI Lincoln Park After Dark


I also have a really awesome sparkly espresso shade that's Sally Hansen, I think. No idea what it's called. I can check tonight, though...I am kind of addicted to nail polish lately, always have something on.

For my hands - I like Sally Hansen Nail Growth 'Precious Pearl'.

I am in love with these right now:

Revlon: Carbonite - which I also some times pair with black OPI shatter or Sally Hansen gold crackle. I am completely in love with this colour!


Revlon: Facets of Fushia


Revlon: Blue Lagoon - which I like to pair with black OPI shatter


Revlon: Steel-her Heart


I actually LOVE the Sally Hanson crackles way more that the OPI shatter. Although I still use it, the OPI one has become super gunky, whereas the crackle spreads more smoothly and has not gunked up yet. They are also way cheaper. I can usually get them on sale for $6 a piece. I have the gold and white!

I'm very particular about my nail colour. I do reds, purples, pinks and nudes.. and I have recently branched out into grey. That is all. I do not do sparkles or greens or blues.

I also don't do colours if my nails are long... I only like colour on short nails.

My favourite red is Essie's Russian Roulette.

I'm going to pick up Lady Like. Thanks for the recommendation!

It says you won't have access to account for an hour. Has it been more than an hour?

Also to cancel you need to phone a 1-877 number. It needs to be canceled before the 20th of the month I think I read in the FAQ, they ship on the 27th or 28th.

They send the first box immediately and then you go on the schedule.

T&C - from my accoun tpage

"Below is a list of your past invoices. If you are a Julep Maven, you will be charged for your next box on the 27th of the month. To avoid being charged, you can login to your account between the 20th and 24th to Skip the Month. If you wish to cancel, you must do so by 11:59pm on the 24th to avoid being charged on the 27th."

Maybe you nail polish lovers can help me....

A few months ago I was on Pinterest and found a nail polish that was beautiful but I didn't pin it for some reason. It was black with magenta sparkles in it. It was so beautiful. Definitely wasn't OPI brand.
Anyone?

That might be it. I remember the sparkles being smaller, but it also showed a picture of it on a nail.

I'll google to see if I can find a pic of that shade on a nail.
