Just this afternoon I took off my nail color for this past 8 days, Orly Gumdrop. So right now just my two base products that are my go-to’s: European Secrets Rock Hard and Nail-aid 3-Minute Artificials. Not doing color until Thursday.

Estee Lauder Dilettante! Oh this pretty minty color (perfect balance of green and blue!) is everything I want on my talons right now!

L’Oreal Lilac Coolers (crelly) with Illamasqua Swarm sandwiched in the middle, topped with Revlon Matte Pearl Glaze.

If I had to do it over again, I think I’d actually put the glaze under my layers of topcoat, as the shimmer in the pearl glaze looked really neat over the lilac/black combo when it was still wet and shiny.

Sally Hansen nail hardener. My nails are quite brittle so that’s a must for me. I don’t have any colour on because I’m rubbish at applying nail polish. I will put something on tonight though. Either a natural pink or mint green. 🙂

Julep’s Tatum–a sort of pale chartreuse shimmer–under Claudia–a peridot colored glitter. The glitter has just a little holo glitter in it; it looks amazing in good light.

Cuccio nail shellac in Cheeky in Helsinki (gray-lavender cream) topped with a sheer mauve with mauve & silver microglitter (I can’t remember the brand. I think the name had ballgown or ballroom in it.).

Just painted my toes…It’s a free gift I just received from beauty.com, Cherry Cherry Lady by Alessandro Insternational! This is my first time to know and try the brand. It’s a very smooth formula, dig it so far!

Essie Chillato is my mani and MAC Washeteria is my pedi right now.. I do my mani and pedi weekly and I’m debating between Zoya Genesis or Serenity for this week’s mani and Butter London Jolly Good (if I pick Genesis) or Zoya Violet for pedi (if I pick Serenity).

I sadly left my top coat (and backup) in my dorm room, so I’ve been using my matte top coat instead.
Currently wearing Zoya Dove + Essie Shine of the Times + Essie Matte About You and it’s an amazing combo – great wear time too had it for over a week now too and there’s hardly even any tip wear!

On my nails right now is a muted neon coral/peach -I can’t figure out what it is exactly- by the brand NYC Cosmetics. It kind of reminds me of Essie’s Tart Deco. Oh and on my toenails: Exotic Liras by Essie!

Nothing! I’m planning on getting a gel mani for my wedding in a couple weeks; I’m trying to baby them until then, because gel manis destroy my nails afterwards.

Deborah Lippmann Dreamweaver on my fingers. Nails Inc. Baker Street on my toes. Switching it today, but debating between Deborah Lippmann Lady Marmalade and Hare Polish Bisbee 2.0.

Sonia Kashuk Rain Check (06) with Sephora by OPI It’s Bouquet with Me (one of my absolute faves) on my ring fingers.

some very chipped sally hansen grape escape on my fingers and a four week old paint job on my toes, some purple metallic shade from julep. I usually don’t let my nails get so horrible looking but work has kept me busy.

Nothing. Not ever. I hate nail polish, painted nails, nails that extend beyond my fingertips. At least there’s one beauty item I never spend $ on!

I always love when this question pops up 🙂 Though I have nothing on my nails right now (taking a break from polish as may nails were peeling recently) I look forward to reading everyone’s answers.

I have a greyish mauve polish from Nature Republic with Pink Sparkle from OPI on three of my fingers and Off with Her Red from OPI with some nail stickers on two of my fingers

OPI La Paz-itively Hot. I’m so boring on this question, I’ve been wearing the same shade for years,I think it’s the perfect hot pink with just enough blue.

The Bamboo White from the Victoria Beckham x Nails Inc Collaboration. With a little bit of some Ciate glitter polish on the tips. Did em up for a friends wedding.

Revlon Gel Envy. Every time. At the moment I’m loving Roulette Rush for a winter red (in in Australia) but all of the colors are fabulous…and I have just about all of them 😉

Right now- Zoya Mae from the new summer collection which is a magenta pink with a pearly finish. First time in a long time that I have not had some version of blue, purple or gray- and I must say I am hooked- might need to do a repeat I like it that much. Or might go the white pearly Zoya Genesis route. That might be a good one to try since I can extend that with the new Dior Tie Die Top Coat- which I love. I tried the tie die top coat over both blue and purple 3 or 4 days after doing my nails and had a lot of fun with it- plus extended my manicure.

A cheap silver glitter polish from Deb clothing store with a Deborah Lippmann off-white shimmer polish as the top coat.

New Essie “pret-a-surfer” from the Summer 2015 line. It looks a bit more purple on the nails than in the bottle but I like it and have received a couple of compliments already today. Now if I could just “color in the lines” when applying my own polish – life would be good!

Butter London Wallis. It’s an awesome burnished green-gold that I’ll only pull out when I’m getting tan 🙂

Just Ducky from Quo by Orly. It’s a slightly shimmery golden yellow. I’m also having a nail colour dilemma. None of my collection seems ‘right.’ Oh what to do!

I’m with you, Christine. 😉 Debating between Obsessive Compulsive’s NSFW (true red lacquer), Rococo’s Gothic Lolita Metallic (knight’s armor) and JINsoon Epidote (gold-laced evergreen).

Orly Bonder Basecoat with two coats of Nails Inc. Nail Kale nail polish in Montpelier Walk, and one coat of Orly Glosser topcoat.

I just took off China Glaze Swing Baby (metallic gold) with Julep Yumi (glitter) layered messily over for a streaky glitter texture. I’m going in for summer pedi and to get acrylics redone tomorrow so going in with naked nails speeds it up. I’m excited about the sheer messy watercolor looks over a white or silver base though, must try that this summer!

L’Oreal Wild and Free, a deep violet, on toes. Zoya Perrie, a cool lavender, on fingers. White accent nail with little flower in Wild and Free dotted on with a yellow center and green leaves. My coworkers thought I got it done professionally, but I used a bobby pin for a dotting tool. (Love the ideas I find on Pinterest!)

OPI live love carnival on my fingers layered with i eat mainely lobster
OPI dining el frisco and keeping suzi at bay for my toes because i’m too lazy trying to match them

My absolute fave! I keep the remaining in my bottle , like Gollum over the One Ring! If you spot any dupe…. let me know pleeease. Big hugs from Greece.

I have tips on right now and I love my nails this week. I have coral and neon green colors, infused with the contrasting colors in leopard print and rhinestones. I love all things bright and all things leopard

I’m wearing Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in 550 Hunger Flames. I love this color! It made up for the two failed attempts right before it. Ugh! I’d foiled my nails twice in a row and wanted to do something completely different, so I did a French manicure. I thought it was dry when I ate something using my hands. =( Then I decided to just throw on the Deborah Lippmann polish in 12th Street Rag, which would have been great if my top coat wasn’t thick and stringy. That’s when I took a trip to pick up more top coat and found the SHMG in Hunger Flames… so it all worked out well in the end. =)
