Re: What Is Your Favorite Nail Polish?

I saw a really nice pinkish neutral on Allure that I'd like to get - Dior Nail Glow. It is one of those really subtle shades that makes the nails look very natural.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Nail Polish?

wackers, you're right that much of it depends on the prep. And the nail, too. Each brand wears differently for everyone. I prep my nails the same each time but some polish I can only wear for a day or two, and others I have worn up to ten days.

Essie has so many beautiful colors but it doesn't wear well for me. Except on my toes. I can wear any brand for a pedi (that I've tried so far) and not get chips between color changes. It may be a good thing that Essie chips quickly on me because there's a ton of them I want. I do pick up some now and then if I really love it because a couple days is better than nothing, lol.

Orly doesn't last for me either.

To me they all wear about the same. I think that you should just get the colors that you like. I stock up on Essie and OPI when Ulta has a BOGO. You can use their coupons also.

BTW, I THINK that Ulta has Butter London for $9 today.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Nail Polish?

I've tried all the Essie, OPI, the better polishes out there. I find that the only polish that stays on my nails are the newer at-home gel's. I'm having great luck with them! I've never received compliments on my polish before but now that I've switched them all to the gel I get tons.

I've never tried the at-home gels. What brands do you like?

Yes, it is today.

It's days like these when a girl needs four or five coupons.

The Lorac palette has been marked way down, lol!

Re: What Is Your Favorite Nail Polish?

One of my favorites is Essie's shade, Mademoiselle, it's a very pale pink and it just has a nice look on my nails. I have some OPI favorites that I use for my toes, Big Apple Red & Russian Navy.

I was ordering some makeup from "The Balm" cosmetic line. Thought I'd try their nail polishes, They are really great, go on well, and wear well. I went back and ordered more.

My favorites at the moment are Essie and Deborah Lippman! I have a lot of brands but like those the best.
