Ahh I'm jealous of pretty long fingernails. Mine are brittle and break easily. Right now I need to re-do them... they are Stop Traffic pink, can't remember the brand. It's neon, streetwalker pink lol. It looks better on my toes. It's bright and festive. My toes are a darker wine color that isn't really summery, think I'll redo them today too. My favorite fingernail polish right now is a walmart brand... it's dark purple that is iridescent blue. I'll post pics later!

toes are Mood Struck color changing polish in a purple shimmer that turns a raspberry color.
one toe and one thumb have blingy decals.

This thread makes me feel so boring. I only recently found a polish that doesn't chip off same day, so I only have a few colors so far.

I'm due for a trip to sally's in a week or two. So I need to start thinking about what colors I want next. I have a rich reddish brown, a light pearly purple, periwinkle, a dark glittery green, and a very vibrant neon blue. What colors do you think I should add next?

That sounds cute! I looove brown and turquoise. I'm in the process of a bronze yellow and black combo.

ETA: maybe a tribal print will be nice w/ your colors with a little white too


Now I wanna try but I'm not sure if I have the patience for all 10! Maybe on the ring fingers or pinkies?
hot!! i think i will do tribal but as you say, only on certain fingers. 10 is too many, lol!

I have just put a Bourjois So Laque polish on. It's fushia and has a great texture, it's very smooth to put on.

Heh, Jeepie, that is colour de TRBL.. I bought OPI "18k Ginza Gold" (the color on my ring finger under the leopard) and then someone gave me a bottle of the same, so I added some red to it.

I've just put a massive chip in this on my bog toe nail when I opened the fridge door onto my foot. This polish does a very clean chip though.

Nope but I've thought about it mostly for cooking/homemaking but I'm really enjoying the nail art thanks to this thread. I never really tried more than a french manicure before this.
