Temptalia Asks You


If you could design your own nail polish, what color would it be? What kind of finish?

Temptalia's AnswerI think I’d probably make it a medium-dark fuchsia-pink with black and gold micro-glitter.  It’d be sexy and shimmery and smart!

    Light pink with silver/ white duo chrome finish

    as weird as it sounds, among many other colors i’d love to create.. a gray! just a plain gray with no holographic in it, and not silver. just a creme gray!

    i’ve looked everywhere, and i have yet to see one!

  3. Blair

    Probably a medium pink with a purple duo chrome.

  4. Mine would be a neutral/nude light beige color that you could wear every day, but it would have a holographic finish. :D Simple, but still fun.

  5. marley

    glow in the dark purple sparkley nail polish

  6. xMissxAndristx

    john deere green, cream finish.

  7. Jessica

    medium red toned purple, with a cream finish.
    teal & pink glitter reflects :)

  8. Alyssa

    Hm.. Maybe a pearly white color with mint green and baby pink pearl/shimmer? :)

  9. amelia

    a bluer version of nouvelle vague. it’s almost perfect… just a little too green for me.

  10. TheJoey

    I would want it to be something that I have never seen before. Maybe a very deep raspberry with flecks of teal, pink and orange glitter or shimmer. My fave colour palette on my nails.

  11. Sarah

    slightly darker than true green jelly with a pink duo-chrome with puple and teal tiny glitter. amazing :-D

  12. livnzoe

    the perfect baby pink!

  13. Natalie

    It would probably be impossible, but the perfect shade of non-streaky minty blue with hot pink glitter!

  14. Linda

    Green with red glitter, pink with red glitter, orange with black glitter, vice versa! Holiday polishes :)

  15. sofia

    i really can’t think of anything better than the taupe colour that most of us loved this year but if i would design my own colour it would be a a shiny bright pink with gold shimmer(but not too shimmery)

  16. Linda

    light grey with teal micro glitter.
    I <3 micro glitter (so I'd buy yours, too!)

  17. Mid-purple (similar to the “share and follow” icons on Temptalia posts!) with teal/peacock blue reflects

  18. Jazz

    Yellow with pink sparkles

  19. Margot

    A taupe colour with pistachio green micro glitter. Just because I’d like to see how it would look hahaha
    Otherwise, a blue grey cream, but THE perfect blue grey. With the right balance of blue and grey and not too dark nor too light.

  20. Tea

    The perfect coral-peach with a cream finish. Like a peach sorbet – not too yellow, not too pink, not too foundationey, not too fluoro.

    Also, mixing reflects glitters into nail polishes is a fab way to up the glitter (but be careful! Too much glitter and it sets the lacquer into a thick gunky paste!)

  21. an earthy green or blue color :)

  22. I would love to have a nail polish of the exact Ford Mustang Cobra “mystichrome” formula. It’s that beautiful green/teal/blue/purple color that only came straight from the factory on a certain year. People try to recrate the look but it always comes out more pink. I would love to combine two of my favorite passions (make up && ford mustangs). So that is the color I’d love to make :)

  23. Radha

    Hot pink with black glitter. I looove crazy nail colors andI also LOVE glitter!

  24. nikki c.

    a greige color with a hint of lavender
    I love metro chic but I feel that it’s too dark and not enough beige or mauve colors in it

  25. Hannah

    I would create a dark wine color, with burgundy and gold micro glitter.

  26. Kourtni

    A color that was peachy like Peachy Keen from China Glaze but had a pink and gold shimmer/duo chrome to it. And then also a red that had a deep black pearl

  27. FlyingBuffalo

    A robin’s egg blue with a cream finish!

  28. Charlene

    A medium purple with LOTS of glitter and shimmer. Probably purple too with silver :)

  29. A smooth, buttery, one-coat, shimmer/holographic multichrome that flashes every color of the rainbow. I guess the closest living-ish relative would be Clarins 230 (damn HTF discontinued sunnuva polishes), although it’s definitely not a one-coater or holographic and more purple/red than blue/green.

  30. Rita

    Red-turquoise duochrome with fine glitter.

  31. Opheliana

    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3417/4559950653_0b5238654e.jpg exactly this colour, and just slightly transparent and very very shiny so it would look a bit like glass on the nails.

  32. Paige

    Greige!!! I am dying to find a greyish beige with a hint of pink

  33. Ashley D.

    A gunmetal with chunks of green/gold diamond shaped with glow in the dark and champagne blue shimmers.

  34. Sharon M

    A medium shimmery gray-blue (more blue than gray) with purple duochrome.

  35. Something like OPI My Private Jet-black with holo, but with a more linear holo design such as GOSH Holographic or Chanel Holographic. Not as scattered as MPJ. My goddess that would be so pretty!

  36. Avatar of Vanessa Vanessa Marie

    A purple/lavender version of Essie’s Mademoiselle. It’s one of my all time favorite colors but there doesn’t seem to be any sheer purples or lavenders out there.

  37. Britney

    I would definitely create a light pastel purple colour. Maybe have it a bit more complex and have some blue-green duochrome shimmer, too. Ouu, that’d be perfect!

  38. Avatar of Cathy Cathy

    A gray cement type color with pink and gold micro shimmer!!

  39. Andreita

    I love blue so mine would be a sky blue one with orange shimmer : D
