Hey guys! I saw this tag on youtube and decided I wanted to answer it! And I threw in skittle swatches!!! (Don't judge; they were rushed)
1. What is your favorite nail polish company?
Ok, I'm gonna give the completely cliche answer and say I can't pick. But I have a reason! I always tell people that not every brand can make every color- brands are always new and inventive, and they can't dupe each other all the time. One brand can't have every cool polish. But... if I was hard pressed I'd say....... OPI, or like drugstore polishes. <- that couldn't be anymore vague... here are some of my favorite drugstore polishes though :)
|Left to Right: Sally Hansen "DVD"; Sally Hansen "Purple Pizzazz"; Sally Hansen "Glass Slipper" over black; Revlon "Emerald City"|
|"Glass Slipper" and "Emerald City" (suede)|
2. Glitter or no glitter?
That's a stupid question..... GLITTER! Glitter to me is magical... I always try to force myself to buy more cremes for nail art, but in the end I never wear them. My challenge to all of you is to find a creme that I can love. Whoever does that wins a glitter polish ;) but here are my favorite glitters: (as you can tell, I'm a big fan of layering glitters)
|Icing "Epic Winning"; Butter London "The Black Knight"+"Tart with a Heart"|
|Hard Candy "Break Up" over black, Nina Ultra Pro "Purple X-ing"|
3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?
Gotta go with OPI on this one. It's a close tie with China Glaze though. Seeing as my best friend can get me any current color I want, it's an easy addiction to feed :P here are the skittles of some of my favorite oness (all over black):
|OPI "Man of La-Mancha"+ "Save Me"+ "Last Friday Night"|
|OPI "I Lilly Love You"+ "Man of La-Mancha"+ "Save Me"|
|Duochromey goodness :D|
4. When do you change your nail polish?
Depending on how I feel, every couple of days or so :D
5. What's your favorite color on your nails?
BLUEEE :D Turquoise blue, light blue, dark blue, shimmery blue, matte blue, whateveeer :/ It's the best.
|Jesse's Girl "Mermaid Lagoon"+ "Glee"; Sally Hansen "Pacific Blue"|
|Wet n' Wild "Blue Wants To Be a Millionaire?" the two Jesse's Girls|
6. Darks or brights?
I like neons and brights and what not, but those deep, shimmery, vampy colors are fascinating to me... i hold them in the sun to try and make the little shimmers appear :)
|OPI "Play Till Midnight"|
|Color Club "Revvvolution"|
7. What are you wearing on your nails right now?
8. Matte nails?
I'm.... meh on matte nails. I love them a lot, but matte nail polish colors seems like a waste to me. I need to put a topcoat to feel like it will actually wear well. I'd rather add my favorite matte topcoat because then I feel better :)
|Warpaint Beauty "Matte"|
Only funky frenches.
10. Favorite winter color?
I'm not one to change my color choices with the season.... If I want to wear neon pink, gosh darn it I WILL! but if I had to make a recommendation, it'd be ....
Bonus! 11. What's your favorite finish of nail polish?
If I had to pick a top two, probably flakies:
|Essie "Shine of the Times"|
|Glitter Gal "3D Silver Holographic"|
This polish will get it's own post very soon... tomorrow perhaps?
thanks for reading!
