Polish, polish, polish.


I was flicking through someone's photos on Facebook recently, when I came across this picture and knew straight away I wanted to use it on my blog somehow. So it inspired to me to write this post..

Over the last couple of years I have fallen in love with nail polish and have managed to acquire myself quite a hefty collection. To be fair to myself though, I don't want every colour; I'm not the biggest fan of blues or greens and when I have two (or three) in almost the exact same shade, I feel slightly guilty. However, my collection keeps growing and although I have recently been on a polish ban to try and use some of the ones I already own up, there are still lots more that I really want!

Anyway, while we're talking about all things nail polish, I am curious about a couple of things:
1. What is your favourite nail polish/colour?
2. Do you have back ups of your favourite ones? If so, what are they and how many of each do you have?
3. How many bottles of polish do you think you currently have in your collection?
4. Which ones do you want to get next?

    1. I hadn't heard of that one before, so I just Googled it and you're right, it's pretty!
      I'm looking forward to switching to my darker colours now that Autumn/Winter are coming and that seems to be the time I will wear my nude shades too :)

  2. At the moment I love A Crewed Interest by Essie (£1.99 from Fragrance Direct, I dont think Id pay RRP, eh), I don't have back ups, of anything really. I always find a new thing and if I love it enough, I just buy it after I run out. Ive got probably (well surely) over 100, which is ridiculous. Sort of embarassin really lol and the next one I wanna get is Gosh holographic! xx

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean about just buying the ones you love after you have run out of them. I should have explained that a bit better - I meant more if it's from a specific collection or if you think they may stop selling it soon. I just bought a back up of Models Own' Indian Ocean because I love it so much and I know it's part of a collection, so I assume it will be discontinued soon?

      I have around 90 bottles and I'm ashamed! Haha.

  4. Love it! I have a ridiculous amount of nail varnish's, I once had false nails and they ruined my own! So now I stick to beautiful colours to paint on instead :-) xxx
