I love polishes, I'm not a fan of make up, but nailpolish is the equivilant of shoes, or jewellery. It finishes an outfit.

Today I am wearing Essie school of hard rocks, an ace dark teal. With a barry m yellow topaz glitter topcoat. The topcoat looks like models own, but is half the price, from superdrug, buy 2 get a web or croc effect free. And the essie came from cheapsmells.com

it's 12.50 on the official ld site, how much on ebay? grin

£11.99 free del. Not much cheaper then. Huh.

I'm trying a new one from a very new brand (run by two women online) called "Killer Colours" in a really light pink. It reminds me of in my teens (so about 1995/6) when Tippex brought out tippex in baby pink and blue that had a hint of the white to it. Lush, and goes in really thick.

I generally buy nail polish (when not being sent it for my blog!) from the 99p Shop! shock Terrible I know! But I find you get colours from the US that they dont stock here.

I feel diddled grin

I love the way shellac/gel lasts (as I am terrible for chipping my nails within 2 minutes of doing them) - but I HATE having to get it off again once my nails have grown! Only just managed to get rid of the last lot, so bare nails atm.

I like Nails Inc. though (especially when they're reduced or free with mags!).

Am coveting one I saw in a magazine (but can't remember the name right now) - sort of midnight blue colour with little gold/silvery sparkles.

I must try the No.7 topcoat too... anything to stop me chipping them!

Bio-sculpture short gels in a very dark brown (similar to Rouge Noir but much more stable and longlasting) . Getting loads of compliments.

Just ordered one. Pinot will compare notes when it arrives!

MissFoodie Tue 16-Oct-12 11:29:18

MissFoodie Tue 16-Oct-12 11:30:19

Pinot Tue 16-Oct-12 11:30:23

grin When it's full of nail dust, just rinse and it is good as new.

Pinot Tue 16-Oct-12 11:30:55

ooOoo dark brown sounds nice. Like chocolate?

MissFoodie Tue 16-Oct-12 11:31:07

valiumredhead Tue 16-Oct-12 11:32:17

Baaaaaaaaaaaah indeed grin

MissFoodie Tue 16-Oct-12 11:34:08

wonder if it'll work to break seal on gels.........

fluffiphlox Tue 16-Oct-12 11:36:26

Like chocolate but with the hintiest hint of maroon.

foofooyeah Tue 16-Oct-12 11:43:10

Very dark red gelish - my first time with gels/shellac and loving it. Nails so shiny still.

LulaPalooza Tue 16-Oct-12 11:43:21

TheLazyGirl what's the URL for your blog? Am obsessed with nail polish/ beauty blogs, would love to read yours.

TheLazyGirl Tue 16-Oct-12 13:53:46

Well, mine is more of a mixed review blog, but if you want a purely Nails blog, then you can't beat my good matey, Glowstars.net

Crystal file has just arrived! Quick service or what?!!

It's fab - no comparison to cheaper makes, will be interesting to see if using it helps my nails to stop splitting.

Pinto thank you! I forgive you for wearing BB shimmer brick wink xxxx

valiumredhead Wed 17-Oct-12 13:03:54
