Immediately, I want to say anything NOT red, but I guess the truth would be blue. Now I want to sort them to figure it out.

Anything holo.. i guess thats not a color but thats exactly what im always gravitating towards :p Or.. purples. A purple Holo would be my most used nailpolish if i had one :p

I don’t gravitate towards certain colors so much as really unique colors and finishes. But I guess if I had to choose I would say green.

Purples make up most of my collection. Overall I like saturated brights, like jewel tones but my face new color is grey πŸ™‚

Glitter. Purples, teals, greens. Super bright/shiny colours, but I don’t love neons that much.

Cremes! Also I have a weakness for whatever is the rage at the moment… I really want to buy yellows right now for instance…

Ah! Chanel vendetta is my absolute favorite nail polish, that darkeggplant color… And when it catches the sunlight, it’s gorgeous! :3

I love the versatility of the Chanel shades. Paradoxal is wonderful for that! Greys, taupes and browns don’t work on my skin (they immediately look drab and dull) but this one is just perfect for me, and the shimmers in the sunlight are so unusual,mmmmh

Corals and deep reds for my toes. When I paint my fingernails, it’s usually in a sheer or pastel shade. I prefer a more bare look for my fingers.

Beige, khaki, grey and all the shades in between. You can never have too many shades of grey…!

Blues.. & not just w. polishes, in my clothes & everything else.! I usually just try to stay away from pink, thanks to my lil’ sis.. she’s a little Barbie & super pink obsessed.! Ugh.. I don’t own a single pink np.. is that wrong.? ;P ok, I rambled.. lol sorry

any of the muted colors…. though Greys, Teals, Greens, and Purples are my favorite and make up most of my collection. Which just got boosted thanks to Zoya’s Earth day! πŸ™‚

Anything bold, really. I love really bright neon colors and really dark, saturated colors. And anything with glitter, really.

I thought it would be purple, but it turns out I have the most blues! I can’t resist an awesome blue.

I almost never wear nail polish, but when I do it’s usually black or vampy dark red. I’m thinking of getting something fun for spring, but I dislike the yellows that seem to be so trendy, and most pastels just don’t suit my hands for some reason!

Baby pinks – I love the way they look on my skin!

Also, neon pinks give me the look of a little tan :).

Mostly it’s reds – pinky reds or more brown toned reds in autumn. Those are my standbys but I’m up for just about anything, barring brown/grey – especially on my toes!

Definitely nudes and pinks. My two favorites are OPI’s Samoan Sand, which matches my skin tone almost exactly, and Pistol Packin’ Pink, which is a really pretty light pink/peachy color. I like to wear bright colors in my clothes and sometimes I feel like I’m clashing if I have say, bright red nails and a purple shirt on.

pastels and unusual colors in cream finish on fingernails, classic reds on toenails.

Blues and Monty colors. I don’t know why exactly. But I’ve also been gravitating towards non-traditional pink colors.

in general i go for nudes on my fingers and anything on my toes. but even within those categories, i go through phases. i was obsessed with the taupy purples that were all the rage a couple of years ago. currently im loving pink on mr fingers and tourquoise on my toes. havent touched black nor metallics yet.

Depends on the season: corals, orange and copper for summer; rust, amber and chocolate for fall.

not necessarily a colour, but I love cream finishes!!! sparkly and glittery colours just seem tacky to me… I don’t know, I’m weird, but I guess I like blues and weird purples like Houston We Have a Purple (OPI)

All colours! But for some reason i have more pinks than any other colour in my collection!

I gravitate towards The Strange Colours. Examples include RBL No More War, MAC In the Buff and China Glaze Below Deck.

blues and pinks. Usually I go for colors that stand out instead of pastels or muted colors. Especially here in the Summer.

In the Fall/Winter time, I still go for the blues and pinks, but also greens and purples and warmer and darker colors.

Hot pinks! I wear a classic slightly shimmery hot pink on my nails and a deeper, more shimmery hot pink on my toenails. I’ve experimented with other color but always come back to bright pinks.

my fingernails are for to most part are clear because of my job. But for my toes I almost always have a coral, orange or pink, but an orangy pink lol

I never really thought that I tended to choose one color but almost all my polishes are bright pinks and purples.

True Reds – shimmer, glitter & satin finishes (in the fall & winter mostly, but year ’round too).

Brights & Neons (any color).

Muted smoky neutrals (in the fall & winter mostly, but year ’round too).


Couldn’t pick just one, as I switch my nail polish a LOT. And these are what I gravitate towards.

Pinks and Corals! I have a ton of Pinks and Corals! Right now I am wearing Essie Van D’Go which is such a pretty pink peach color πŸ™‚

I gravitate mostly to nudes, beiges, peaches, light pinks,and for those shades i like sheers. & also pastel/muted colors such as sage green, mint green, gray, yellow toned pink, and white. I like subtle nail colors on fingers and toes.

On my toes I always look for a nice pink or coral/almost red color.
For my fingernails, blues (any shade, really) and purples (medium-dark).

All nuances of purple! Plum, black-plum, violet, lavender, mauve etc. But I’m especially drawn to the really dark ones like Lincoln Park After Midnight.

Ditto on if I like it, I want to buy it. But over all, usually will reach for fuchsias, the ‘right’ reds for me, peachy corals of late, purples.[, & in winter I go for the blue/blacks or deep browns to deep black with cherry hints in them. I like cream,sparkles, duochrome, holos (on sparkles the ones with sparkle in the formula so I don’t have the top crunchy thing. Look in my boxes of polishes and you will find a zillion reds in all shades among the older ones – now more fuchisias and purples with some out of the box shades (for me) like a teal, bright blue. I won’t go over-board buying color ranges that are out of my normal box as I know I will tire of them and give them away.

Shiny neon creams. The brightest, loudest, most unusual shades are my absolute favorites. That being said, I tend to gravitate away from glitter and sparkles… it’s easy to find pretty sparkly shades, a lot tougher to find great, unusual brights.

Basically all nudes and neutrals!

I own so many bright colors but never seem to wear them! Always grabbing the nudes like OPI dulce de leche or OPI tickle my france-y

I also love bright corals like OPI Cajun Shrimp and OPI Hot & Spicy

Anything with a touch of purple…. lavender pink, pinkish purple, purplish pink, plummish red…

I am a “classic” girl so I used to wear pinks, corals dark reds etc.
But lately I have been tempted by the new offerings (see Chanel & Diors) and I have bought greys, khaki, safari greens, mushroom shades (see Chanel Particuliere). Then yesterday I bought a bunch of fluo shades for summer (see the last launched Dior has made in the Aloha collection!!)

generally dark vampy colors, or really unique colors right now im wearing RBL jane
