When I decided November last year to stop chewing my nails something happened. An obsession of sorts, for nail polish. And because I’m a sharing caring type of girl I thought I’d share some of my favourite colours with you. It’s a victory of sorts this nail polish collection. It says this one time in November, sitting on a friend’s couch, I decided to something. And I did it. It says I’m a person who does what they say they will do. It also says I love bright nails.

So check them out. It turns out all my favourites are by ORLY or Sally Hansen. I grabbed them from the top of the bag and didn’t notice until I was taking these pics. I have a couple of great colours from Rimmel and Loreal. And a few cheapies from the supermarket. But these are the colours I reach for, time after time after time. You’ll see why.

Which is your favourite?

    I have an undisputed obsession with OPI nail polish. Much like accessories, nails are a simple and cost effective (well unless you’re like me and pay $20 a pop for my OPI’s) way to update your look! xx

      It SO is. I’ve seen a few OPI colours and they’re stunning. I don’t own any though. too rich for my blood. 😉

    None of those colours really appeals to me. Maybe the Who’s Who pink if it was shimmery. I’ve never been a nail biter, but I inherited weak, soft nails from my mum. Since I was about twenty I’ve tried strengthening this, nourishing that, hardening polishes of varying brands. I even tried taking gelatine capsules for two full years. Nothing works. I don’t want long nails, I think they’d just get in the way, I just want strong anils that don’t tear , peel or break on a daily basis.

      It is a little shimmery, it has a blue pearl through it. I love that one on, it’s amazing.

      Mine tear when I pick at the edges. It’s the thing I annoy myself with now, weakening the edges. It gives me the shits. Hope you find something that helps. People told me to get the $18 Sally Hansen one. I haven’t been brave enough to pay that yet. HA.

    I always have my fingernails and tootsies painted! Sally Hansen was my all time fav! However shopping in Coles two weeks ago I discovered they had a big cardboard bin filled with Ulta3 nail colour in every colour imaginable for $2 each!! Normally you pay for what you get with nail polish however this stuff is fantastic. Lovely glossy colours that glide on and are chip resistant. If I did not know better I would think it was a high end of the market nail polish. Check it out!

      Kimmie, this is the bargain bin stuff I was talking about. It’s SO good for $2. I grab more out there colours in this range, in case I don’t like them on, it’s no risk.

      And Sally is just great. Love her colours. I have about 5 others too.

        I got four more yesterday Mel and the best bit was they had been reduced to $1 
        Winning!

        • Melissa Walker Horn

          Wow! That’s GREAT buying. :)

    I tried a $15 Sally Hansen, triple strong nail fortifier, in a small green bottle, it didn’t help at all. It peels off, so I remove it with polish remover and it takes several weeks after that for the nails to stop peeling again. Really wasted my money on that one.

      Oh no. That sucks River. I’ll let you know if I find anything that works. Thanks for letting me know.
