Do you like nail polish?

DustBunny DustBunny
I love to paint my nails, it's a long lasting(sorta) way to add a feminine touch without having to remember to put on rings or a bracelet.

Since I work in a kitchen I am not allowed to wear nail polish, but I do so on my days off. Lately I'm really into checking out blog about it and seeing new colors and techniques. I'm really fond of new paper nails and learned that I could print my own designs and transfer them as well.

I don't have the money to get them done professionally, but I'd just adore the chance to get a mani/pedi. I'm probably well over due for one as well, the last manicure I got was when I went to prom 10 years ago. But this doesn't stop me from trying stuff at home, it's cheaper too.

Oh yeah, and if your nails are done at this moment, what brand and color, I'd love to know what others are wear. I'm really into OPI's Just spotted the Lizard from the Spider man collection, it's a douchrome color that's gold and green. A much cheaper version of Chanel's Peridot.

I only wear polish that is formaldehyde and toluene-free, so that limits my options a bit. Believe it or not, Wet N' Wild nail polish fits the bill, is decent quality and only costs like $1. I just wish they offered more color options.

It is a love/hate thing. For me I like the option of painting my nails for special occasions. I dont like the smell, and the thought of what might be in the fumes. I don't like that I always seem to break a nail right after I paint them and it doesn't last as long as I would like given the time and effort involved. But I do feel a little sexier when my toenails and finger nails are painted! I like OPI. I like traditional colors, red or pale pink.

I like the way it looks for going out for the most part but usually it's just something I end up doing to procrastinate more than anything else. Usually I end up going with more traditional colors, but I do have a few excessive ones for party occasions.

I love having painted nails but, they chip so easily. I've never had it done professionally.

I like nail polish but not on myself. I also do not like the smell, so I hate to be around when someone is painting their nails. But I like the result.

Have you ever tried nail strips? They go on somewhat like stickers and have a longer lifespan than polish. They also don't have as much or any fumes, okay so do and some don't to be honest. I've tried the Sally Hanson ones and I think there was very minor scent to them, and boy did they stay put, 6 days later they'd not chipped, just grown out a bit.

Thanks for the tip! I will look for these in the store. I have never heard of these. Sounds good!

Ooo... I'm wearing some homemade polishes at the moment from Adore Beauty on Etsy. (I'll be posting a review on my blog soon!) They are beautiful! Metallic pink and yellow on my fingers, gunmetal and a lovely dried blood on my toes.

If you want a link or coupon, send me a message.

I'm wearing a scented polish right now. It's like a deep, bright pink color and makes my fingernails smell like cherries for 4-5 days. I even painted my toes with it!

I like wearing color-changing polish...but it chips so easily T_T

I'm not a fan of it. I like plain, clean, short nails.

OPI has a Spider Man collection? Why didn't I know? I'm a beauty blogger and do post on upcoming nail Polish realiease. I remember seeing the Muppet's collection, Pirates, Shrek. I love all the colors from all those lines. I'm usually into browns, grays...neutral colors....and then pastel colors. For some reason neutral colors always look best on me.

I love nail polish! I don't like to do anything fancy besides put glitter polish on. I'm not really into painting designs. I have a neat little nail stamper though that's pretty cool but it's hard to use.

I'm currently wearing a dark sexy red with microglitter called Sugar Sugar. It's from Sinful Colors.

I prefer to do my own. I don't need fancy designs. I only get them done for special occasions and haven't since my high school prom. I will for my wedding but that's it. It just isn't worth it to me. But the times I have gone to get mine done the techs commented on how nicely shaped and healthy my real nails are so I really have no need. I also just hate the feeling of fake nails.
I paint my own. I love traditional colors and the crazy bright, metallic, glittery, crackled ones as well. I've had people ask me before if my nails were real when I painted them myself so it's nice to get compliment that they look nice enough to be fake.
I love painting them but don't always do my fingernails but my toenails are usually always done, right now they're purple .

May I ask why that is? I'm curious .

No, not really. There's really no point in using it unless I'm going to some major event. It gives me a really bad headache anyways.

I'm obsessed with nail polish. My favorite brand is OPI. I have a lot of different colors but the one I go through the most is 'My Private Jet'. I'm currently wearing OPI Ink. It's a really pretty dark purple color with a shimmer to it.

I love nail polish! I;m always buying more. Mine chips frequently since I am really hard on my hands with work (I work with animals, lots of hand washing) So I repaint frequently which allows me to change things up a lot.
