Tag: Confessions Of A Nail Polish Addict

Sometimes it's nice to take a break from the swatching and do a post purely for fun! I've decided to join in with the Confessions of a Nail Polish Addict tag, after seeing posts from my dears Emily (Very Emily) Deborah (Love Varnish) and Kellie (Kellie Gonzo). Personally I love reading this sort of blog post and I hope you do too!

1. What nail polish are you wearing on your nails (and toes) right now?

I'm in the middle of a swatching session (aren't I always?) so I'm wearing the divine Where The King Goes, The Realm Follows from Cadillacquer's new collection - swatch post coming soon! On my toes I'm wearing piCture pOlish Swagger...I've only just painted my toes after them being bare for months. I'm gross. 

piCture pOlish Swagger - currently gracing my toes.

2. What is one nail product you can't live without?

OPI Nail Envy. I doubt I would have nails without that little miracle worker! Also Lush Lemony Flutter (I know it said ONE product, but seriously, I need both!) 

3. What is your favourite nail brand (mainstream and indie)?

Mainstream would have to be Barry M, I have such a long blogging relationship with them and they're just miles ahead of any other budget high-street brand. Higher end mainstream is definitely Illamasqua, they make me warm and fuzzy inside. 

Indie at the moment is Glam Polish, but I'm also loving Spell Polish and ILNP

4. What shape nail do you wear (short or long)?

Square! I'm tempted to go oval but I'm not yet convinced. My nail beds are very long which means I only really need a tiny bit of free edge - so technically my nails are short! 

5. What is your go-to colour?

I'm obsessed with greens and turquoises and always turn to them first! I also have a soft spot for lilacs and citrus shades. 

piCture pOlish Unicorn, a fabulous turquoise...who thought up this beauty!?

6. What is your favourite nail polish finish?

I always come back to creme! I just love a good creme with a fantastic formula. You know the ones that are just a dream to apply? Ah, cremes...give me them all. 

7. What’s on your nail polish wishlist?

Actually not much at all! There aren't any rare/hard to find polishes I can think of that I want, I'm not really one for that sort of thing (how boring am I) I'd really love to try some polishes from Femme Fatale, Renaissance Cosmetics and KB Shimmer.  

8. When do you usually paint your nails (morning, afternoon or evening)?

Usually evening, but sometimes afternoon. Rarely in the morning, if. 

9. What’s your top nail tip you swear by?

As has already been said...moisturise. Seriously just do it, it's so important! 

10. What nail polish do you regret buying?

None really, everything I own I've liked at some point and I'm not much of an impulse buyer! God I'm such a bore, but I really have to love something before I buy it.

11. Neons or pastels? Brights or darks?

Neons and pastels, always! I'm all about bright and fun colours and I'm pastel obsessed.

pastels are my boyfriend.

12. What is your holy grail white, black and nude polish?

Black is Cirque Colors Memento Mori, white is Cirque Colors Carpe Diem and nude is tied between Barry M Lychee and OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around. Another fabulous black is a-england Camelot.

13. What is one brand you want to try but haven’t yet?

LOADS! Femme Fatale, Renaissance Cosmetics, KB Shimmer, Hare, Crows Toes, Delush Polish...the list goes on. Too many fabulous indies.

I tag Hannah (Polly Polish), Alice (One Nail To Rule Them All), Sammy (The Nailasaurus) and Lucie (Lucy's Stash). Feel free to take part if you want to, though!
