I quite like Nails Inc and Borujois varnishes. Nail varnish isn't something I spend a lot of money on because I wear it so infrequently.

Nails Inc colours:

Glasgow - Irridescent white

Walton Street - Fuschia

Piccadilly Circus - Dark fuschia

Bourjois

Cerise Noir - very dark red wine colour (like Chanel Rouge Noir but cheaper!)

Violet Seduction - very dark purple

IT SEEMS MOST ARE WEARING THE FRENCH LOOK ON BOTH MANI AND PEDI

WHEN I WANT A QUICK PICK UP WITHOUT SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY I BUY A BOTTLE OF NAIL POLISH AND DO MY NAILS.

I wear nail polish so infrequently that when I do it has to be bright. I fidgit too much and always smudge it. If I want to look groomed I just buff them and put clear pink polish on them (it makes the tips look whiter).

OPI by far, is the best IMO. Doesn't chip and lasts long on me.

OPI - Louisiana Hot Sauce (a sparkly reddish-orange)

OPI - Rosey Future (an irridescent pinkish color)

OPI - Samoa Sand (great for French manicures - a beige)

OPI - I'm Not Really a Waitress (gold-flecked burgundy-red)

I also like Essie nail colors: (same reason as OPI)

In the summer, I usually get one of those "permanent" French UV Gel Manicures and in the winter I just use regular color.

It's been a long time since I've painted my fingernails on a regular basis, but when I do I like light pink or coppery colors, always with a bit shimmer or metallic finish. Sometimes I'll do a lavender for something different though it's probably not my best shade. (I think dark colors are a little too dramatic for my style so I avoid them!) My favorite polish is Maybelline's Wet Shine in Champaigne Pink (I wore it at my wedding!) but it's discontinued now
French manicures only emphasis the weird shape of the white part of my nails so I never do them -- but when my nails are long (which they usually are) I love them painted in a solid opaque color, I've gotten several compliments on my hands and nails before ...

For toenails, I think pale colors look weird on my pale skin so I always stick to bright or dark colors. (Again, I love my feet when my toenails are painted .. my hands and feet are my favorite features!). Right now I am loving Rimmel's 60-Second polish in Movie Star, a sparkly warm red. I'll also do dark pinks or dark purples for an occasional change but I've been using that Movie Star more often than not lately


I don't really care about the brand ... as long as I use my Sally Hansen Maximum Adhesion Basecoat and Sally Hansen Acrylic Topcoat, the polish will last all week!

I'm so fickle. As much as I love a color, after a few days, I wish I had a new one on.

I have a lot of OPI nail polishe's but i am partical to any polish that has a color that appeals to me.I wear mail polish like lipstick and choose the color to suit my mood.

Today i am wearing Cool in the Pool (OPI) which is a gentle calming blue color. Often i will wear balck nail polish or Vampire state building by opi.

If you like OPI you might like SINFUL COLORS available at where else, but WG's.

.

I bought two the other day, but I've yet to try them. I've tried OPI and see Sinful on others. It appears as if it does the trick!!
