Nail Polish Obsession Tag!

























1. What's your favorite nail polish company?
OPI! I love its formulas, packaging, collections and of course the names :)

2. Glitter or no glitter?
Glitter. It's so beautiful to look at and adds a touch of excitement to everyday life. However, after a certain age, it takes a specific personality type to pull it off.

3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?
OPI! I'm not a big fan of China Glaze. Essie is decent but it doesn't come close to OPI.

4. When do you change your nail polish?
On average, every few days. I usually do one color for the week and one for the weekend.

5. What's your favorite color on your nails?
I have very fair, cool skin. Blues look great but I suppose I enjoy taupes as well... I have so many favorites. I think a traditional cool toned red polish goes well with almost anything and is classic.

6. Darks or Brights?
I prefer neutrals. Darks look good (greens, blues, purples, reds) but I tend to steer away from black because it can look pretty harsh against my milky complexion (Elvira, anyone?). Brights are lots of fun in the spring and summer but aren't necessarily the most flattering against my coloring.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?
OPI Rainbow Connection over LA Colors Color Craze Live (metallic silver).

8. Matte Nails--In or Out?
In! I'm in love with them right now. I think they're so unique and sophisticated. I use China Glaze's Matte Magic on top of standard polish and it transforms it beautifully.

9. French Manicure?
Nah. I used to do it in high school but it never looks natural on me. I think it can be lovely on short-medium natural nails with very fine tips. But to be perfectly honest, I think it has become a dated look. Nothing is worse than long, fake nails with thick, stark white tips.

NAIL CRIMES FROM AROUND THE INTERWEBS:



















10. Favourite Winter Color?
Reds/Greens/Golds for the holidays. Blues and Silvers for January. Reds/Pinks/Glitters for February. Purples/Greens/Oranges for March.  I definitely get festive and associate months, seasons and holidays with colors, then style my nails accordingly. Yes, I have a problem.

11. Favourite Summer Color?
Pinks and Lilacs. OPI Rumple's Wiggin' is a favorite.
