    I never wear nail polish on my hands, but since I was procrastinating on a paper I decided to try it out. ;)

    Fingers – Nothing! I had been changing my polish weekly, and my nails were not happy. I’m taking a break, and then I’ll switch to polishless manis for awhile.

    Toes – Orly in Green With Envy. Great color, but I don’t care for the formula.

    China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Fade into Hue. I’ve had it on for a week now and it still looks immaculate. :)

      I can’t keep mine on for a DAY, let alone a week! have to ask, what’s your nail-painting process? What kind of base and top coats do you use?

      • Avatar of Christina Christina J.

        I second that question :)

        • Avatar of Precious Precious

          I use Anchor (base) and Armor (top), I normally do two coats of each. :)

          I don’t do much with my hands, I guess that can be a factor as well.

        • Avatar of Pami Pami

          It’s important to start with a clean nail bed. Swipe your nails with your nail polish remover first. I love Zoya’s “Remove +” because it’s gentle on the nail, and the smell doesn’t knock you out.

          I mostly only use a base coat (usually Zoya Anchor) if the polish is one that stains. Then I paint the first coat and let it dry. After I paint the 2nd coat I immediately apply Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. It’s incredible stuff. Best I’ve ever used. Until I tried Seche, I’ve been using Zoya Armour, and then their “Fast Drops Polish Dryer”.

          You need to reapply a top coat every few days, or a glitter coat to extend the wear. I can get up to about 10 days, and I’m not too careful about using my hands.

          Hope this helps, and you get as good results as I do!

    I don’t usually wear nail polish because I can’t paint my nails for the life of me and I become frustrated when I can’t use my nails as tools. XD

    I wish I was better at nail painting, but having a hand tremor kind of impedes that.

    Two coats of Revlon Colorstay Pale Cashmere. Nice and soft and clean with a touch of transparency. I needed a break from bold colours, although I currently have three Rimmel Metal Rush polishes and Sally Hansen Midnight in NY on my desk tempting me!

    On toes: Flower Beauty’s Thistle or That.

    Illamasqua Raindrops – I ordered it 2 weeks ago after reading your review and finally caved! I love it and it’s lasted a full week on my nails with minor chipping. Nail polishes (OPI, Butter London, etc.) usually only last 3-4 days before chipping really badly.

    Essie Tomboy No More. Fitting name for me :) It’s a beautiful deep jelly creme red. Perfect application and I am day 8 with minor tip wear!!

    It was a LE shade from a few years ago but I have seen it on various online polish dealers. I need a backup, I am almost done, it’s THAT good!

    Fingers – Zoya Areej. I love this color for spring/summer
    Toes – Zoya Kylie2. I had this on my nails last week, but since I bought some polishes from their Earth Day sale I wanted to try something new :)

  53. Simone by Julep. I change my nails every two days lol.

  54. Avatar of Ella - FaB Girls Blog Ella

    On my toes is a dark red colour from Dior – one of their old shades I think.

    My fingers are currently bare as I took off Apple by Zoya yesterday, and I like a day’s break to let my nails breathe. After I wash my hair tonight though I’m putting on Nothing Else Metals by Essie.

    OPI La Paz-itively Hot which is my trademark hot pink. I really wanna try some of the Hare colors tho’, I hope they get stock soon.

    Essie Absolutely Shore on my fingers and Essie Mint Candy Apple on my toes… I don’t like matching my toes and fingers but I LOVE using a similar color on both with a darker/brighter version on toes and a lighter/more muted version on fingers!

    Essie’s “Fiji.”

  84. A rainbow of different colors on every finger! Hot pink on my left pinkie, then true red, red-orange, orange, and yellow on my left thumb. Mint green on my right thumb, then true green, teal, royal blue, and purple on my right pinkie.

    So fun! Maybe my favorite nail art to date.

    • Avatar of Pami Pami

      I love doing things like that, though not necessarily an ombre/rainbow effect like yours (which is really pretty!), but sometimes colors that I like and go well together.

  85. YSL Jade Imperial with Butter London Matte top coat. It changes the look of and makes my nails look like camo nails.

  86. Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

    For the first time in more than a year my finger nails are completely bare! I decided to give them a two week break to get rid of the yellow stain. I plan on painting them again tonight, I haven’t decided on the polish yet, but I’m pretty sure it will be a blue or purple pastel with a cream finish.

  87. Kiki1988

    In honor of the last Queen’s day here in the Netherlands (at least for a while)…OPI’s “A Roll in the Hague”, which is incredibly orange — and the title is very fitting, since the palace is there :)
