What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

And if not
how often do your regular manicures last. (reply here or PM is fine) thanks in advance (:

I'll probably remove it soon because I don't like the grown out space at the bottom.

Does anyone else on here just file your nails down when needed rather than clip?

Curlilocks- I want a mani that matches my jammies. You must be the coolest kid at the sleep over.

RCC- Your nails really do look two different lengths painted and naked. That is an amazing polish. Looks like 3 different colors.

I've been eying needle marble manis lately. Here are some links I found. I saw one done in Essie Chinchilly and black polish it looked great. If someone does a needle mani before I can get to it, can you try to suck a little so mine doesn't look so bad in comparison.

More fun with dots... I tried to do it as if they are settling down into the bottom, so they look kind of bunched up and overlappy; shades of browns, orangey reds, and a glitter over a super dark brown base.

A few days old, pardon my chips.

I was inspired to do the marble mani today after seeing the links. I did just an all over marble look nothing fancy like just doing the smokey tips. I will figure out how to post pictures because it was so easy to do and it looks very nice. Its hard to mess this one up. I used China Glaze for Audrey and Black Diamond

After over an hour I got impatient and ripped the rest off.



I just did serious damage to my nails. It's a good thing they're so thick. At least I can buff that mess out. They should grow out in 6-8 weeks, but I'm going to have to keep them short so they don't break.

Nallia- OMG!!! What polish was that so I can never ever use it.

Adorame-I hope you figure out how to post pics because I'd love to see some. It sounds awesome.

ETA: Got my free Zoyas today. Noel and Laney.
ETA: Nallia- I meant to also say that I hope the damage isn't that bad and it is easy to grow out. I said it in my head, but not in this post.

It was Perfect Match gel polish (Nobility) by Le Chat, in Princess Tears.

PERFECT MATCH™

I have never had an issue with gel polish before, but I will never use this stuff again.

nallia, i think you liked essie right? i saw a protein treatment by them and also one called grow rich which is supposed to be moisturizing. maybe those can help your nails until they grow out.

It might be that these have more glitter than most. I don't know. They're REALLY thick. So thick it looked like I had acrylic on my nails. If I ever try them again I'll try picking up some gel polish remover and see if it works better.

I have Sally Hansen stuff that I'll try before going out to buy something else, but if it doesnt help I'll head over to Sally's or Ulta and look at the Essie stuff.
