Tags: Nail Polish Addict & 11 Questions

Friday 16 March 2012


Spotted this Nail Polish Addict Tag on Gaby's blog that is doing the rounds at the moment and thought I'd post it along with some of my own polish p*rn for you all to admire.


1. What's your favourite nail polish company?
I'm torn between a few, but my absolute favourite would probably be OPI because I always want something from their new collections. I like their formulas, their often silly yet quirky names and they're a brand that seems to be able to collaborate successfully with celebrities time and time again.

2. 2. Glitter or no glitter?

I'm a total sucker for anything glittery so I personally love it, even though it's a pain to remove!


3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?

Have tried all three and going to say OPI again. However, I do really like China Glaze and Essie a lot too, I just have a lot more OPIs currently in my collection.


4. When do you change your nail polish?
When the mood strikes me. I'm sometimes fickle and will wear a colour once and take it off the next day if I see something else I'd rather wear. But at the same time, if I'm wearing a polish that I really love, then I have been known to wear it constantly for like two weeks.


5. What's your favorite color on your nails?

I can't pick one, I have too many joint favourites to choose from! Some of my all time favs include OPI Parlez-Vous OPI?, OPI Jade Is The New Black, OPI Black Cherry Chutney, Barry M Racing Green, Barry M Coral, China Glaze Fifth Avenue, Nails Inc Shoreditch, MAC Formidable!, Zoya Jem.


6. Darks or brights?

I love both and probably wear them in equal measures. Only thing I will mention is that I only like brights on my toes.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

Still wearing OPI - Lucerne-Tainly Look Marvelous but will probably scrub that off later and pick something else for the weekend.


8. Matte nails - in or out?
It's not a trend that I've experimented much with. I bought a couple of matte nail polishes from MAC when they were being heavily hyped but I don't remember wearing them for long. I mainly just want to put glossy top coats over mattes which kinda defeats the object a bit!


9. French manicure?

It's not a look I'm personally fond of as it brings up images of WAGs and Jordan for me, but I think it can look OK if the nails are kept short and neat.

10. Favorite Summer Colours?
Probably corals, oranges and bright pinks!


P.S This isn't all of the nail polish that I own. Oh no. Embarassingly enough, there's a lot more including various dupes and things that I haven't had the heart to let go of yet. One day I'll sort it all out eventually, I promise! For now, the photos above are my 'main' polishes that I use the most of.

And while I'm here I'll quickly post this 11 Questions Tag from Helena's Edge Of Beauty blog:-

1. What is your favourite MAC Lipstick?
Shy Girl definitely, so easy to wear and seems to look great on lots of skintones.
2. What is your favourite foundation?
At the moment, it's Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Medium Beige.
3. What is your favourite blog?
Eeeek can't pick one! Check out the Daily Reads list in the sidebar for starters :)
4. Iphone or Blackberry?
I seem to be in the minority but you can't pry me away from my BlackBerry just yet.
5. What is your favourite brand for blush?
6. What do you order at Starbucks?
Iced Caramel Macchiato or Iced Vanilla Chai Latte, though I do fancy the frappuccinos every now and again.
7. What is your staple wardrobe piece?
A black leather biker style jacket that fits well.
8. What trend do you most dislike?
I don't get those Crocs! Why?!
9. What is your favourite perfume?
Not a big perfume wearer, but one that I do wear occasionally is Flower by Kenzo.
10. Who is your favourite actress?
I have a few, love Abbie Cornish, Eva Green, Jennifer Connolly & Rachel McAdams.
11. What is your favourite high street store?
Zara, always has nice stuff and finds a good balance between being 'on trend', but without making you look like you're 14.

I tag anyone who wants to do either of these :) Have a good weekend!

  1. Awesome collection. I see we like the same brands, OPI - Barry M are definitely some of the best. I'm also not a fan of 'traditional' French manicure but I wanna try experiment with the 2 colours, with the neon tip which is trending recently.

    1. Yep I love OPI & Barry M :) I like the colourful trend take on french manicures too, definitely more fun than the traditional look x

  2. Ahhh, so many gorgeous shades! I'm a big OPI fan as well, I always look forward to their new releases and I've never had issues with their application or formula. I'm also a total sucker for anything glittery :)

    1. Yay! I think OPI AND Glitter is just a match made in heaven :)

  3. The zoya taupy nude colour is gorgeous. Great collection + I need some opi in my life! x

  4. Oooh I really need to do this tag :)

    1. would LOVE to see your collection, i always enjoy reading your NOTDs :)

  5. Haha nice post to learn more about your nail preferences! I used to be a Chanel maniac for the past 10 years when it came to nail polish, but about two weeks ago I bought one by Tom Ford and I don't think I can go back. The colours are just so vibrant, and while pricey they don't chip ad will last longer so I'm seeing it as investment ;£

    1. Ooo don't tempt me with those Tom Ford polishes! Every time I see them in Selfridges I have to restrain myself!

  6. Loveeee your new post! I'm a total sucker for nail polish too but I don't own as much as you :)
