Manicure Monday ~ The Collection

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?

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

    • November 20, 2014 / 9:03 am

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

  4. November 19, 2014 / 6:53 pm

    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. 🙂

    • November 20, 2014 / 9:03 am

    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!

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

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:22 am

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

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:21 am

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

  11. Rebecca Swenor
    November 18, 2014 / 5:36 pm

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:21 am

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

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:20 am

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

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

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:19 am

    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 🙂

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:19 am

    You have lots of collection. Pretty colors.

  21. November 18, 2014 / 7:39 am

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:18 am

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

  22. November 18, 2014 / 6:36 am

    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!

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:17 am

      hahaha no not tried other NYX products just that nail polish

  23. November 18, 2014 / 5:23 am

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

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:11 am

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

  37. November 17, 2014 / 4:01 pm

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:11 am

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

  38. November 17, 2014 / 3:49 pm

    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!

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:10 am

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

  39. November 17, 2014 / 3:26 pm

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

  40. November 17, 2014 / 12:58 pm

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

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:09 am

      hahaha thanks

  41. November 17, 2014 / 12:22 pm

    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!

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:07 am

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

    November 17, 2014 / 12:09 pm

    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.

    • November 19, 2014 / 11:07 am

      Shades of pink aint bad lol thanks
