Adorame- I absolutely love your tulips and your tulip manicure. So awesome.

Wet 'n Wild Megalast Bird Bath. I tested out several glitter, shimmer, and flakie top coats. There is a different one on each nail. I thought they would show up great in the sunlight. You can't even see the flakies on the ring finger. Glitter and shimmer hide in pictures. It is like they have a cloaking device or something.

Zoya "Whitney". This polish is amazing. Goes on so smoothly -- no streaks. Lets see how long before it chips or peels!

Oh yeah, and I got my Zoya order today!

Zoya Stevie, 2 coats no top or base coat. My first texture. It wore very well for me (7 days). In sunlight the first day I thought it looked too thick, like polish that needs thinner. It didn't look quite as bad as the first pic, but on that order. After the first day it didn't bug me. IDK if it dried more and looked better, or if I got used to it. I love how it sparkled. It is still sparkly even in low light. I'm surprised that I prefer this in indoor light. I expected the opposite. I tried one nail with a top coat before I took it off and meh. I really like this Pixie Dust, but I probably won't "need" tons of them.
China Glaze Blue Iguana, 3 coats. It hasn't been on a whole day and 3 nails are chipping. I also hear it is a stainer. It has a purple duochrome which shows up a little in the pic. It is also a jelly with micro shimmer in it, similar to China Glaze Ruby Pumps but in warm blue. I'm guessing I'll use this mostly for pedis.
Update: I remembered that I used a top coat as a base coat for Blue Iguana. That is probably why it chipped.

Doing spring cleaning did not agree with my nails one bit, they were braking and pealing left and right. I an babying them for now and am using nailtiques formula 2 treatment.

been looking through this thread for days, loving all the nails!

I don't often paint my nails because I always end up doing something to chip them and don't want to re-paint so often, but you all inspired me. I don't know the names of my polishes I used today... one was an old wet n wild dark green, and then I used a more green/blue opaque color from a brand called cricket over top. I painted the white details on with acrylic paint (so I could wipe off the million mistakes rather than redo the entire nail) and put on my top coat. Not perfect but I liked them. The detail and color match the shirt I wore today (in the right lighting anyway lol). MAN the right hand was hard though!

Added a second pic that shows the slight blueish hue a little better.

I've got to do my nails. I have had the same chipped off polish on forever.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Yep that was the sally Hansen kit with the pen, it worked amazingly well and was super easy. Having said that the pink color was a little hard to get even, and needed at least an hour to dry before doing the tips.

Sally Hansen extreme wear in Coral-something, topped with Sinful Colors Pinky Glitter.

Two thoughts here - the coral is great on my warm skin tone and the polish is opaque out of the bottle, but the formula was very streaky. Which is a bummer because I could not get it even.

I like this glitter WAY more than I thought I would. My 5 yr old daughter picked it out. It has gold flakes and holo flakes in a pink jelly base. The glitter coverage (that's one coat in the pic) surprised me and I want to try it alone & in other combos now. Plus it camouflaged the streaks in the coral color.

^^^love the coral and glitter!

the new MAC summer collection polishes are loaded with glitter - the bronze one looks nice.

my nails are naked at the moment due to piles of yard work...

for any fellow Canadians perusing this thread - there is a website called Nail Polish Canada - Free Canadian Shipping where one can buy things you can't find in stores - like that Whirled Away from China Glaze. and i have my eye on When Monkeys Fly from OPI, it's the gold and multi glitter from the Oz collection!

Thanks! I've been eyeballing gold glitters too. Gold works on my skin as well. The picture doesnt do this one justice. I should take a less blurry pic but I painted a room last night & they're needing re done now lol.

These are My nails in an Inspired by Robin Moses nail art Dragonfly design. I used OPI Just Spotted the Lizard on all but my ring fingers on the ring fingers on top of that i layered a few glitter polished first on the whole nail i used Fairy Dust by China Glaze then i used Snow Globe and Make a Spectacle both by China glaze on just half of the nails to the tips. On the ring fingers I used Black Out by Sally Hansen for the dragonfly wings I used Just spotted the lizard drawn on with a nail art brush and for the body I used a medium size circle glitter that I had for crafts I used clear nail polish to hold them in place. In Robins video she used a pearl white polish and outlined the dragonflies but I put Fairy Dust over the nail insted I used Out The Door top coat to seal it all.
