Nail Polish Obsession Tag

Monday, 11 July 2016

Sometimes it's nice to take a break from things, but being forced to do so is very frustrating.  I have so many pretties that I want to play with and share but this cut on my finger is taking forever to heal.  Anyway, to break up some of the swatch spams I have I thought it would be fun to do another nail polish tag.  Today I have the Nail Polish Obsession Tag which has been around for quite a few years but why not bring it back again? 

1.  What's your favorite nail polish company?
For mainstream I would say OPI and China Glaze.  As for indies that is a bit of a tricky one.  There are so many that I would class as favorites but my top favorite indie at this exact moment in time is Emily de Molly.

2.  Glitter or no glitter?
Both.  I would say eight times out of ten I reach for a creme polish but mainly because they are easier to take off.  Although glitter accent nails are always a winner.   I do have Powder Perfect's peel off base coat that I need to try out and then maybe I can have more glitter manis in my future.

3.  OPI, China Glaze or Essie?
I really like all three brands but OPI and China Glaze are definitely my favorites.

4.  When do you change your nail polish?
Well prior to this forced break of mine, daily and usually at night once my daughter is in bed.  Sometimes I may get some spare time during the day to do some swatching but the majority of my nail time is night.

5.  What is your favorite colour on your nails?
I'm not too fussy with what colours I have on my nails to be honest but I do tend to grab for purples and pinks more often.

6.  Darks or brights?
Brights.  I do love dark polishes and definitely think that there are times where only dark polishes are called for but at the end of the day I like bright colours.

7.  What are you wearing on your nails right now?
Emily de Molly Quest For Immortality.  Yes I am still wearing it a week later!  Trust me I am just as shocked as you probably are right now.  I have a whole blog post on this polish (with a lot of pictures) that you can see here if you missed it.

8.  Matte Nails - in or out?
Matte nails are always in in my books.  There are just some manis that look better matte and some better shiny.  And flakies!  Flakies look awesome mattified!  Color Club also released the Pop Chalk (matte) Collection earlier this year so matte must still be in.  You can check out my review here if you missed it.

9.  French manicure?
There is a time a place for French manicures but they aren't a go to thing for me.  Fun fact:  French tips (and I'm not talking traditional colours here) were the first type of nail art that I ever did back in my earlier teens. 

10.  Favorite winter colour? Now given it is currently winter here in Australia you would think that the answer for this question would be really easy for me.  Nope.  In the last few years I haven't really been doing "seasonal" colours so much.  But really any dark, vampy colours are great for winter.

Now a question for you, would you be interested me doing a question and answer post?  So anyone can ask me anything (can be polish related or something completely different) and then I answer them in a post.  Let me know!


  1. I loved this!!I love seeing a bunch of your manicures together and I love a peek inside someones polish love.

  2. Oh, questions! Do you have a favorite collection? Are you a stay at home mom? (I am) Do you ever feel you have too much polish? I actually want to use my polishes...maybe even use them up. LOL

    1. So many questions! I love it. I'll definitely do up a post soon. If you have any other questions keep them coming. The more the merrier :)

    2. Do you have favorite top and base coats? Perhaps you could show us you light box set up along with what kind of bulbs you use. Do you have a "must have" nail product? What's your favorite stamping style or plate or image type? LOL Perhaps a slight picture of your collection so that we can all groan with envy. ROFLOL. :0)

    3. Lol. I'm sure I can manage something.... I may need to a separate post for collection and light box. I'll see how I go. Thank you for all of the questions :)

  3. Love this post & all the collages. I'd also love to have a Q&A list from you (although I'm very sorry your finger is still sore). My question, how many polishes are in your collection and how do you store them?

    1. Thanks Vicky. I'll definitely do a Q&A post and answer those....I may even take a picture if I can work out some decent lighting.
