Shower Together by China Glaze on all of my fingernails but my ring fingers. My ring fingers have Solar Power by China Glaze, with little orange and black butterflies outlined in gold. :]


I have UD Grunge and Sephora by OPI How Many Carats? on top of that. I just received my UD Apocolyptic Nail Polish last wk and I love all the colors. This was the first one I tried though.

A rather elaborate mani that I did yesterday, actually:
1 coat Orly Bonder
1 coat Essie Fill the Gap!
2 coats Zoya Zara (light purple with gold shimmer)
1 thick french tip in Zoya Ginessa (shimmery white)
1 thin coat Zoya Zara
1 coat pa A125 (multi-size holographic glitter)
white & gold cherry blossom nail stickers
multisize and colored rhinestones
1 coat SH Miracle Cure for Severe Problem Nails
1 coat Seche Vite


a sparkly, wintery silver-white with a chunky silver glitter gel overlay. after a dark, matte fall i am slowly slipping into snow queen mode ^^

Nothing at the moment 🙁 but I just bought the two nail polishes from the Dior holiday collection, which I love! It’s my birthday on Sunday so I’m going to be applying the purple one. Can’t wait.

A pearl like nail polish from OPI. I need to change to a fall pearl color. I really do not wear the dark colors.

China Glaze IDK. I tried a zoya matte (Loredana) yesterday with a shiny tip, and although it was a nice idea, I didn’t do it well, so it had to come off.

metallic neutral taupe, with white tips, and then a milky very light pink over the top, making it all opalescent instead of metallic.
The taupe’s a very old OPI, and I have no idea what the name was. The sticker fell off ages ago.

essie “mint green apple”. It looks too brigth for this time of the year, so I applied Sephora by OPI gold glitter on top to warm it up.

3 coats of ChG Ruby Pumps, 1 coat of Orly Prisma Gloss Gold, 2 coats of Orly Love Each Other, and 1 coat of ChG Techno. They’re totally bling-tastic.

Nothing .. yet. I had to cut them, since they all went yellowy and fragile ( I’ve been a nailbiter for over 7 years! Ofcourse i was thrilled when i FINALLY had some long nails to show of). Atleast, they look healthy now.

PS : I’m totally lemming that Chanel Holiday nail polish.

Nothing. Nail polish always peels off my nails within days, so I can’t be bothered to paint them very often. I had the new Mac nail polish (Lucky Number) on my nails for a few days when I bought it, but it just looked terrible within a day or so. I have rubbish bendy nails, that’s the problem.

Mine are painted my favorite color right now – OPI’s Bogota Blackberry, a deep shade of red with a very slight shimmer. I was actually just about to remove the polish, though. It’s been almost a week since I painted them, so the edges are looking a little ragged.

CG Ruby Red Slippers (I think that’s what it’s called). It’s sooooo pretty! I just got the gold holo that it was promo’d with and I think I may put that on top. Maybe try black polish under ruby red!

Essie Midnight Cami. A bit too dark for everyone else’s taste here in Miami but I like it. My boss thinks I’ve gone goth on her.

“Done out in deco” by OPI—it’s a pale purple, no shimmer, no glitter….i’ve gotten the most compliments on this color. I work at a nail salon so I change my nail color every week and whenever I wear this color I’m always guaranteed to be asked “what is that color?” or “i love that color!” =) btw love your website, keep up the good work!

India mood for love by opi…..I needed a cheerful fushia shade, a nice change from my parked vous opi! Love that shade too!

Right now, Diamond Cosmetics “Chainmail Charm” – a gorgeous black/charcoal holographic polish sort of like Color Club’s Revvvolution. However, I will change my manicure later to be more Thanksgiving-ish and festive, and I plan to do Zoya Angelina with China Glaze 2030 Konad-ed in a pattern on top! 🙂

I currently have the minx black and white houndstooth design on my nails… I’m really loving the minx nail concept…

I am wearing Nails Inc in Belgrave Place. It’s a gorgeous, deep blueish-purple colour. I’ve been eyeing it up for ages and finally got it at the weekend :o) .

Just painted this very second with Chanels ‘Dragon’. Got it today,pricy as hell for a nail polish, but it’s red and looks like rouge allure laque in dragon sooo…

Two coats of Sephora by OPI Metro Chic, with a top coat of my 7 year old’s Glimmer Gloss. Haha. It adds no color, but a nice blue sparkle.

Mermaid to Order nail polish of Sephora by OPI
Not loving it really, specially for the office.
I was trying to get a half-moon manicure yesterday but ran out of time and couldn’t apply the black coat -_-

i have the on the prowl hello kitty grey polish on my toes and fingers and i painted black zebra stripes on top…my nails are stained pink right now though cause i colored my hair with semipermanent dye so it rubs off on everything 🙁

I’ve been changing my nails every day or so lately! Right now it’s just the new CG glitters in Disco Ball (clear base with micro silver glitter and big holo glitter hexagons).

black cherry chutney by OPI
(I put it on yesterday and it’s already starting to chip 🙁 It’s the only OPI shade I have that does that…)

Nothing right now, waiting for my recent Nubar polish purchase called, “Eiffel Tower Sparkle” to arrive. Hopefully I can do something Christma-sy with my new Konad plates!!

Orly Glitz, a beautiful warm gold. Slightly deeper than the China Glaze winter collection version. Topped off with Orly top coat. Am loving the glitters this season. Can hardly wait to pick up nearly ALL the colours of China Glaze relaunch of Wizard of Ooz Ahzz.

OPI’s La Paz-itively Hot. It’s the perfect hot pink shade. It sounds boring but I’ve been wearing it for years and it’s pretty much my trademark.

Nothing except for one coat of nail tek foundation II. I am planning on putting some CG later but haven’t decided on a color yet.

wearing OPI Russian Navy MATTE Collection
p.s the Matte colours do not last! mine start to chip after 2 days, if u want it to last u need the top gloss coat, but it defeats the purpose of being matte!

too bad b/c the matte looks cool

I have on: OPI’s Did somebody say party?
I haven’t painted my nails a “color” in forever. I have always been a essie’s ballet slippers or french mani but I am loving this color

I am wearing a gorgeous color by OPI and it is called Pompei Purple. Even though it’s called purple, it is a super bright fuschia pink purple. This is my favorite. On my toes I am wearing an OPI Manicurist of Seville from the Spain collection.

I love OPI, and I own almost every single color that have came out with so far. 🙂

I’ve got a base of Nicole by O.P.I. Boys N Berry (shimmery cranberry) with a Konad m57 pattern overlay in Nicole by O.P.I. in Imagine If (silver chrome). It’s super awesome (I just got my Konad set about a month ago and I LOVE it!!)

OPI’s Conquistadorable Color.
Perfect application with two coats. It’s too pink/magenta for me in certain lights, but in others it’s just perfect.

It’s on all my nails but my index finger which has left-over OPI’s Vodka and Caviar with a couple layers of China Glazes’s matte top coat. I cut my index finger really badly and nicked the nail with a super sharp knife. I put on a bandaid and left the nail polish. No way I was going to get remover get anyway NEAR that wound. Oww!

Some color that I don’t even know the name of, it’s an opaque bluish violet color and on top of that blue and gold glitter polishes.

OPI – Princesses Rule. I read that Dell and OPI are going to be making some laptops in polish colors and Princesses Rule is going to be one of the colors…….I soooooooo wish I needed a new laptop….but I really don’t 🙁 Even if it meant a Princesses Rule pink glitter laptop

At the moment, ‘Steel Her Heart’ by Revlon. Its a really pretty metalllic, steel gray. Next, I’m thinking ‘Clutch Me If You Can’ by Essie… a really dark chocolate cherry

OPI–My Private Jet

It’s a weird, dark purple/taupe with gold sparkles–LOVE IT! I get tons of compliments on it.

“Night Before” by Rimmel (a deep, almost duochrome blue-violet) and Cover Girl Boundless Color glitter topcoat in Ruby Dust. I am of the staunch opinion that when it comes to nailcolor, the only real difference between, say, Rimmel and a nicer brand like China Glaze is wear time. I work in grocery, and so work with my hands and type all day. Not even the nicest nail polish can stand up to two days at my work, so I don’t even both splurging! 😉

I just did them again. Before I redid them I had on Sephora’s brand of Brownie which is like a chocolate brown but now for Thanksgiving I am wearing Urban Decay’s Apocalypse and I’m liking how dark it has with the hint of purple.

China Glaze’s Branding Iron – it’s a dark burgundy-red shimmer. Way darker than my usual choices but I like it!

Nothing, I misplaced all my nail polish..
I would kill for China Glaze, Love you Snow much Collection..Anyone know anywhere in Phoenix, Arizona or Vancouver, BC where I can find it?

Try Sally Beauty Supply shopes for China Glazee in BC area… they have them in Toronto so I would assume the same out West

Im wearing OPIs Monsooner or Later on both my fingers and toes 🙂 its such a beautiful, summery bright red.

I love wearing red. I like to wear more orange based reds in summer, and more blue based reds in winter (such as OPIs Vodka and Caviar)

Right now it’s OPI’s Hey! Get In Lime! I really love the color mint and I’ve been wanting to pick up Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. I have Butter London’s Chancer on my toes =) Green and Red!

Indigo Paris by Lancome, and a generic silver polish that make moons (or the lanula) on my nails. It makes my nails look like jewels!

I literally just took off OPI Japanese Rose Garden and Strawberry Margarita – I had a manicurist who had a colour-matching problem. Im going to do a nail treatmeant and then Im thinking Pinking Of You and Princesses Rule with rose nail stickers 🙂

I have China Glaze Emerald Sparkle (thank you Christine for introducing me) on my toes.

I had OPI You Dont Know Jacques! on my hands but took it off last night.
