Skin tone: very light with cool undertones

Favorite cream polish? – Holo Taco One-coat Black, maybe? Also really love Sinful Colors Let’s Talk, a deep shimmery purple.

Favorite metallic polish? – Revlon Lucky Us is the metallic silver I wore for my wedding. 🙂

Favorite glitter polish? – LA Colors has some surprisingly great holo glitters (the Diamond Crush and Color Craze Gel ones) but my *favorite* would have to be Holo Taco Midnight Spark, a deep blue jelly full of stunning glitters.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Favorite cream polish? Sally Hansen Yummy Yam, Loden Green and Scarlet Lacquer. The original Sally Hansen formula is still the only cream polish that lasts longer than 5 days on my nails. It’s just so good. OPIs cream formula is great as well.

Favorite metallic polish? I don’t really have one!

Favorite glitter polish? It’s a recent purchase, but ILNP Pool Party! Soooo beautiful!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/cool
This is gonna be hard, nail polish is my jam.
Favorite cream polish? China Glaze Light as Air, a grey leaning pale lavender (China Glaze as a brand has some of the best one-coat cream polishes out there, and I’ve tried everything from pricey to drugstore to indie). Honorable mention: Chanel Paradoxal: a dusty medium purple with subtle shimmer, the color that got me re-addicted to polish after years of bare nails.
Favorite metallic polish? Marc Jacobs Gatsby, I’ve tried a lot of chrome rose gold but this one is the best, it’s not too pink and it’s not too copper, plus the finish is like silk, not grainy or streaky.
Favorite glitter polish? I don’t wear glitter polish so I’ll nominate a holo instead: Color Club Revvvolution, the most gorgeous gunmetal grey with such a fine particle linear holo

Favorite cream polish? I am not sure it counts as a cream because it is slightly pearly: Janet & Jo Read Receipts

Favorite metallic polish? I don’t care for those

Favorite glitter polish? ILNP Black Orchid

Skin tone: quite light with warm undertones
Favorite Cream Polish: Essie “Virgin Snow” (for color only – no necessarily formula)
Favorite Metallic Polish: I’m not the biggest fan of metallic polish, but if you throw in holo to that metallic polish, my fave would be Cupcake Polish “Berry Good Looking”
Favorite Glitter Polish: Now that’s a difficult one, because I adore the sparkly polishes…hmmm…Painted Polish “Party like a Patriot” (just because I’m a proud and patriotic American)
