The Nail Polish Tag!

Hi folks,

I was tagged by the lovely Audrey over at The Nail Affair to do this post. She is amazingly talented and has the best collection of polish I have ever seen. You should definitely check out her blog if you haven't already!

So let's get started!

Favourite nail polish company?
I would have to go with Essie if I had to pick one. I will admit sometimes they aren't too adventurous, especially for things like glitters, but I love all the soft pastels and nudes. Nails Inc would be second, but they are pretty expensive and not much cheaper online, unlike Essie.

Glitter or no glitter?
I do like some accent nail glitter but I'm not a huge fan of covering every finger with it. One of the reasons is it is such a pain to get off! Love a bit of glitter for a night out or at Xmas time though! 

OPI, China Glaze or Essie?
Essie, then OPI, then China Glaze. Probably the reason that I put China Glaze last is that it is least available here in Ireland. I think they are great value though and I do have a few of them!

When do you change your nail polish?
At least once a week, but generally twice a week. I feel like it's ok to have loud nails in a professional job, as long as you keep them free of chips etc. I strongly disapprove of girls with nail varnish starting half way down their nail! I like to do my nails well, do the proper clean up etc so I just don't have time every day so I think twice a week is a good compromise! 

What’s your favourite colour to wear on your nails?
100% pink. Pink is probably the most common colour in my collection. I suppose in one way it's pretty traditional but I love loud, bright neon pinks the most. I think if I had to choose one colour to be on my nails for the rest of my life, it would be a bright neon pink like Essie's Punchy Pink.

The pink is brighter in real life!

Darks or brights?
Definitely brights, especially now it's summer. Nothing against dark colours though, like a nice dark purple or blue. 

What do you have on your nails right now?
An indie - Lush Lacquer in Neon Lights. It's a bright white with neon glitter. 

Matte nails… In or out?
I have actually never tried matte nails! Even my mum has tried matte nails. Who am I?

French Manicure?
I really like a Shellac French manicure. I'm not so good at doing it myself so it's probably the Shellac I would get most frequently. I like a nice bit of a crisp white tip and with the length of my nails it can look a little like short gel nails which some people find a bit tacky looking. Oh well!

Favourite Winter colour?
Nails Inc Baker St or a nice near black like OPI's Live and Let Die.

Nails Inc Baker St

OPI's Live and Let Die - love this colour!
So much fun doing this post, what better questions to answer than ones on nails?!
