Nail Polish TAG

I know I might be a bit late in this tag but I only just found it and I really liked the questions :) Plus its my first Tag post! Yay!

1. What is your favourite nail polish company?

High End: My Favorite high end brand is OPI just because of the colour range and the brush. The brush makes it so easy and quick to apply to my nails. Some of their names arn't half bad either :)

Low End: Barry M because the colours and formulas are amazing, I havnt bought one that I have not fallen madly in love with and its just £2.99 a bottle! :)

2. Glitter or no glitter?

I love glitter nail polishes, one of my favorites is GOSH Gasoline :) I don;t mind the time it takes to get my nails clean again, they are so worth it!

3. OPI, China Glaze or Essie?

I guess it would have to be OPI but I have not tried China Glaze or Essie. I doubt I would be able to get China Glaze anytime soon but I know Boots stock Essie so maybe some day :)

4. When do you change your nail polish?

Recently everyday! I love experimenting with nail polish right now so sometimes its more than once a day!

5. What’s your favourite colour on your nails?

I recently made a Nail Polish Collection post and I realised most of my colours are blue, thats because I find blue such a attractive colour when Im looking for nail polish.

6. Darks or brights?

Ohh this is hard for me because I love both dark colours and bright, usually Its due to weather, If its sunny out then I'm usually sporting something bright, if its not so sunny then I like more unique and intriguing colours on my nails, prehaps some navy colours or teal :)

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

Right now I'm wearing a new Barry M polish in Copper, It such a lush colour. With loads of different coloured glitter so it seems to change when hit by different light.

8. Matte nails, in or out?

In, when with the right colour. I find that some nail polishes look lovely with a matte finish, overs look best with a gloss coat.

9. French Manicure?

I have only ever had a French Manicure once and that was for a cousins wedding when I was 13, I can't rememeber if I loved it or not, all I remember is that she had a chocolate wedding cake :) YUM!  I love the look of them on other people, they look so pretty and girly. Someday I will have to try them again!

10. Favourite Summer colours?

Probably a lovely coral colour or a light blue :) I have been wearing Barry M's Blueberry Ice Cream a lot this year when the suns out....It just calls to me :)

  1. I don't know why some girls say that pearl nail polishes are for old women, I prefer them.
    I have tried China Glaze and they're good but when I don't use them for a long time they can't be used afterwards.

    1. I love pearl nail polish too, I have a realy nice one from Nails Inc, its called Old Queen Street and it looks so elegent on the nails :) I feel like a princess when I wear it. Thats sad about China Glaze, I was gonna buy some from amazon uk but they can be quite expensive on there :(

  2. I love barry m but they work out at €4.70 or something here. They last ages though!
    I've never had a french manicure but they do look nice on some people. They can look really fake and tacky when they aren't done right though...that's why I steer clear of them :P

    1. Awhh thats sad that they are more expensive where you are from, maybe they are cheaper on amazon or something? :)

      I'm growing my nails at the moment because they have always been short, so maybe when they get to a certain length I might go get them done, just to see what they look like :)

  3. Totally agree with Barry M being the best low-end brand... they are amazing! I've yet to try GOSH Gasoline, it always tempts me in Superdrug but I've yet to buy it, it does look very pretty though! Love that you're wearing Copper, such an amazing colour :D fab post :D xxx

    1. Thanks, I've just done a small Review on Copper and it really is lovely :) I love Gasoline you should really try it sometime! :) xx
