Sally Hansen’s Salon Manicure in Pat on the Black or something. Not a fan. I don’t like the brush that comes with it.

NOTHING!!!! I got over my nail polish addiction because I didn’t want my nails to yellow and purchase different kinds of coats to protect it and etc… So now I can just spend tons of money on eyeshadow and lippies instead, haha

I’m road-testing a couple of new Revlon polishes! Loving them so far – it took me a while to try Revlon’s nail lacquers, but I’m glad I did!

Astor – Play the Graffiti over an orange creme from Catrice and I love it! It does look a little bit like a Halloween manicure, but I don’t really mind 😀

I haven’t worn nail polish since my wedding in 2011. My nails are so weak that everytime I try it chips within two days (with base and top coat), and I always end up with horribly broken nails. Nothing has helped so far, any suggestions?

I have this same problem. I would get acrylics put on for a long time. Finally my nails are long enough to be without the tips. My manicurist puts on the acrylic powder and the other stuff (no idea what it is called) on my nails to keep them strong and not breaking. Works for me. I am also rough on my hands (work in a doctor’s office, so constantly washing) and paint my nails on average twice a week. Hope this helps!

try taking some magnesium citrate supplements. weak nails can be a sign of magensium deficiency, which can also cause other health issues over time

A England Dragon – perfect colour and formula. Though half an hour ago I had a Essie Smooth Sailing + Shine of the Times + Matte About You, which is an amazing combination. Actually anything looks good with Shine of the Times.

Oh, and of course Seche Vite.

One hand is bare, the other has got quick swatches of 5 new polishes I bought yesterday. Butter London Fairy Cake and the 4 OPI/Gwen Stefani minis.

My answer is always so boring: OPI La Paz-itively Hot. It’s been my trademark color for at least eight years, probably longer. I think it’s the perfect blue base hot pink.

I currently have “Baby Please Come Home” from the OPI Mariah Carey 2013 holiday collection.

Ohh, Christine, I can’t wait to get my hands on the Essie Spring collection! I like the resort one as well.

On fingernails, Essie No More Film, probably in my top 5 favorite polishes of all time. On my toenails, Zoya Pandora.

I’m wearing Zoya Wednesday as a base. My nails all have iridescent green and iridescent white glitter on them. My accent nail has silver holographic glitter. I love getting a mani done by someone who loves glitter and nail art 🙂

Zoya Dahlia. It’s the black Pixie Dust one and it’s so daytime rock and roll! Plus the formula dries so fast, it’s definitely my new go-to polish.

American Apparels Mount Royal and a bit of nail art in Zoya Dove. I like how it looks but the AA shade chipped on my thumb the day I painted it! Nothing chips on me usually and I’m sick in bed so I have no idea how it happened. I can’t wait to see the Essie shade you’re testing!

I’m just getting into stamping, so I have a Sally Hansen creme teal base, and gold glitter gradient on all nails but my ring accents– which I’ve stamped in a metallic golden floral tapestry pattern. They’re so pretty! And way easier than I expected to do.

(Sorry if I double posted, my browser hiccupped!)

I just got that one in my Maven box! I haven’t worn it yet though, other than a quick swatch just to see how opaque it was. What do you think?

Me too…..just received my Maven box…love the LOVE shade!!!! Just wonder if you put a top coat over it it won’t feel so much like sandpaper????

Covergirl Bombshell. Bright pink with silver shimmer! Going to do and accent nail or nail art later on today. It’s February…I have Valentine’s day and my anniversary this month, so all red and pink all month!

I’m really loving Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Dragon Fruit. It’s a really gorgeous blue-based pink that my mom picked up for me in London, which I never would have chosen for myself. I tend to go for warmer pinks, but this one is awesome!

On my fingers – Rue, from Zoya’s new Naturel Collection, a muted greyed mauve-pink. On my toes – Got the Blues for Red from OPI, a cool-toned deep red.

Julep in Judi – a deep violet/plum cream. I love Julep’s formula, and the design of the bottle/cap/brush makes it so much easier for me to apply nail color neatly.

OPI Gel Funny Bunny, 3 coats. It gives a beautiful mostly opaque white effect without looking like whiteout! I love it and can usually hold it on for 4 weeks (I don’t care about grow-out and I file them down with the polish on if/when they need it). I’m super fair and the pinker nude polishes (Bubble Bath, Ballet Slippers) tend to wash out my hands. Hmmm, that sounds kind of stupid, actually. I think it’s more that the contrast of the white is more flattering than the pinky-nude.

I’m not sure on the brand but I have a bright yellow base with Illamasqua’s Swarm (clear polish with black glitter) on top. Had a customer grab my hand for a closer look today!

OPI Designer Series in Classic. I’m not an OPI fan i usually prefer Sally but i couldn’t resist the color. However gels are the way to go.

I wanted to choose something I haven’t worn in a long time, so I picked
Zoya Faye from their Summer Sunshine 2011 Collection which are all loaded with the prettiest superfine glass-fleck micro-sparkles that just glow.
