Tag- Nail Polish Addict!

I think it's safe to say that I'm a *teency* bit of a nail polish addict, so when I came across this tag post on Lara's Blog I knew I had to do it too!

1) What's your favourite nail polish company?

Ooh that's a hard one... I love so many brands for different reason; e.l.f. have a great colour range and are so cheap, Barry M has a good formula and No7 have lovely brushes. Basically I could never be confined to just one brand, and I can't think of any brands that I don't like!

2) Glitter or no glitter?

Now this is an easy one- despite being a pain to remove, and having some serious texture issues- I flippin' LOVE glitter :) It's just so pretty!

3) OPI, China Glaze or Essie?

Well, of those three brands I only have one polish- and considering that it's the beautiful For Audrey I'll have to say China Glaze :)

4) When do you change your nail polish?

Usually about twice a week (as you may have noticed from the frequency of my NOTD posts!) - I almost always paint my nails on Sunday or Monday ready for my 52 week challenge post, and then I wait until it gets chipped enough to annoy me, and I repaint. I often leave my nails 'free' overnight between painting so I have time to smother them in moisturising lotions and potions :)

5) What's your favourite colour on your nails?

At the moment I'm enjoying pastel shades, but generally my favourite colour is whatever is on my nails at the time! The only shade I don't particularly like on me is gold because I don't think it looks good on my (cool toned) skin.

6) Dark or bright?

Usually bright- although I do love dark blues and purples, again, the answer is usually reliant on what I have on my nails...

7) What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

 Currently nothing- I've just removed my polish ready for another mani, I'm not sure what that'll be though (watch this space!)

8) Matte nails- in or out?

In! I really love the effect, though I do have to be in the mood for matte nails- sometimes I find the texture annoying (I'm so fussy!) and they do chip faster which irritates me.

9) French manicure?

Yes please! I really wish I could master the technique and I think they're really pretty- the classic mani :) I have to say I do usually prefer the 'funky french' looks though- I'm not really one for plain nails.

10) Favourite Winter colour?

I don't really appreciate being 'told' what to wear based on the season, so I don't have any colours that I only use in the Winter; but I do love to wear festive greens and red at Christmas (and the nail art is fun!)

I hope you'll do the tag too! Let me know if you do, I'd love to see what your anwsers are :)



  1. ahh I seem to be as much of an addict as you are! haha read my tag response here:
