pic mani 1 pic mani 2 pic 3 maniScreenshot 2014-11-13 at 18.04.4520140621-133912-49152417.jpgHi there! I am still buzzing in anticipation for my new nail polish to arrive as part of my Love Me Beauty Box and I thought I share with you what I already have in store. This is half of my entire collection – I move too much so I leave almost everything at my parents house (aka free storage place). Back in the day I was never one to wear bright colours apart from red because that’s my colour but lately I seem to have grown a backbone for colourful and bright colours (Even dare to paint the Gentleman’s toes – was funny and cute). My latest manicure wish list contains more bright colours than ever before and I am happy with my new confidence of wearing such bright colours.  This Fall has brought me into loving these Fall colours I shared in my post and though I love all the colours I must say this NYX fairly Pink colours does stand-out for me. I think I have mentioned in almost all my manicure monday posts how much I love each polish I wear and mention when I do not but usually if I do not like the manicure I never bother sharing. What I usually love for in a nail polish is:

  • Application – how easy is it to apply, does one coat or two do it?
  • Removability – I have had my share of nail polish that once on need a whole bottle of vanisher to remove and even when removed they leave an ugly stain. I need a polish take an arm and a leg to remove
  • Non-chip  – I love non-chip nail polish I like to wear a polish for more than 5 days so need a lasting ones and at times I wear same for two weeks or so hence I need non-chip polish
  • Shine/shimmer – I do love nail polishes that shine and or shimmer because I don’t know but they look better and more stylish and not just bland.

What do you look for in nail polishes (if you wear)? What do you think of my collection?

    • I always love the golds, blues vary with me lol

  • I love all these colors. Reminds me I need to fix up my own nails.

  • Elizabeth O.

    I think red nail color is a must try for holiday season.

  • Carly Anderson

    All of these colors are pretty! I always look for my polish to not chip right away.

    • I like non-chip polish with my constant hand washing I need it strong

  • I love all of the colors that you have in your collection, especially the turquoise. Turquoise is one my favorite colors to wear when it comes to nail polish. 🙂

  • mail4rosey

    My daughter loves to experiment with polishes. She’s pretty good at polish designs too, it’s fun to watch. She’d love your collection!

    • awww bless, wish I was good at the art/design part but nope lol

  • April @Everyday Fitness and Nu

    I love the color selections you have. I don’t paint my nails often but I would definitely want something that held up well.

    • This is why I love the non-chip because though I have this collection and love it I dont paint weekly like before

  • Manu Kalia

    Bring on the no chip nail polish. It is the only kind to put on! Thanks for sharing your collection. I loved it.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    I like your collection of nail polish. I have a huge collection of so many different colors. My daughters friends get me to do there nails.

  • Risa

    I find that almost every nail polish I wear chips really fast. I got some samples of those Jamberry nail wraps that I’ve been meaning to try, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I hear they last a lot longer than nail polish.

    • I hate when they chip so fast, I need atleast 10 days

  • Rebecca Swenor

    I love your collection of colors indeed. The polish I love the most are the ones with the glitter or shimmer in them. They have to last at least a week without peeling off. Thanks for sharing.

    • So true about shimmer not too much glitter girl i suffered one time with them and they couldnt come off lol

  • Faithful_Mommie

    Great colors! I use OPI and Essie, but these are amazing colors too!

    • I have 1 opi and a couple of essie which i could not find for this share

  • Stillblondeafteralltheseyears

    I am loving the Gabrini colors. So fun to see your whole collection. I have quite a few but I find I only use one.

    • I was impressed with the Gabrini its not a brand I knew but love it now

  • Nichole Monk

    Such pretty colors. I am a bit jealous of your collection!

  • мѕ.αℓчѕѕα

    WOW! I’m loving your collection, especially those reds!

  • Lynn Dee

    Wow! What a collection! I love bold colors like red and black. Not much into pink.

    • Thanks Lyn I too love the reds but more pink than blacks

  • Elizabeth O

    I just had mine today but love those colors.

  • Johanna Both

    As my nail artist said in the last couple of years I’ve been the “boring” french nail girl, until I was brave enough to try red couple of months ago. Since then I’m in love with it 🙂

    • awww bless though I love french manicure cant be pop of colour

  • john lopez

    Nice colors and collection, my wife surely love this! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Juliana RW

    You have lots of collection. Pretty colors.

  • Ooh what a pretty collection! How long do you keep it before you throw it away? I know I keep mine way after expiration date. I think for me the most important is that it goes on smoothly and doesn’t chip.

    • hun I think I have had some for 2 years now but later will throw some to replace

  • This post is like candy to my eyes lol… Have you tried other NYX products? I love them! Lets hope someone gets me nail polish for Christmas because you just made me very jealous!

    • hahaha no not tried other NYX products just that nail polish

  • I been wanting to a post about my polish. I just been annoyed with how I want to set up my photos. I love the colors you have here. Love the mint greenish one.

    • Thank you, you could do it like I have simples lol

    Ahhhh love it!!! I’m a nail polish junkie so this was right up my alley 😉

  • Dawn

    I never really got into the wraps and the elaborate nail stuff, but I do love a good polish or lacquer.

    • I do love nail polish so when I can I do grab a few and play with them but nothing fancy

  • It’s funny, I’ve never done much with my nails, but lately I’ve been thinking about giving a little color a try. I definitely need something to keep them strong.

    • I am now on the market for something to keep them strong too

  • This is one of my addictions. I love fingernail polish and pick at least one up every week. I love that really light green in your collection. This is not something I would normally choose but I love it!

    • ok your obsessions sounds more than mine lol I am lovely the green too for some reason

  • wow what fun colors. I am just now getting into nails. I love all the colors.

  • Oh eeeee look at all those colors. I’d have a field day in your polish. thanks for sharing.

  • Great collection you have! For me, the biggest thing with nail polish is non-chip…that actually doesn’t chip! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is it for me!

    • I agree there so many sharing non-chip then they chip

  • Vicki W

    Your collection of nail polishes is awesome! I need to venture out and try other colors myself! I always seem to stick to shades of pink.

  • Fi Ni Neachtain

    That’s a fab nail polish collection. I have so many too but hardly ever get time to sit down and paint my nails. You’ve inspired me to have a mani Monday tonight. Thanks girl! 🙂

  • Robin Rue

    You have an awesome nail polish collection. I love all your colors.

    • Thank you I am proud of my little collection

  • These are really nice colors for nail polish. It would really stand out.
