What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

Some shaping, a whole bunch of buffing, Poshe nail strengthening base coat, Orly Fowl Play, and Poshe fast drying top coat.

I wish it was still light out so I could get a brighter picture of it. It's such a pretty dark purple with some tiny and chunky lighter purple sparkles mixed in.

I never thought about it. But it's not really a glitter polish, it's just glittery.

LOL Jess! And thanks!

These are interesting suggestions on removing glitter polishes. Essie posted the link on FB.

Glitter nail polish has naturally begun trending as we get closer and closer to the holidays, and with the nail art craze taking us by storm the bigger the flakes of glitter, the better. But, those chunks can be rather pesky and annoying to remove -- almost so much so that we tend to stray away from the best forms of glitter polish just to make our lives easier (the horror, we know).
Celebrity manicurist Elle, who works with bling-tastic stars such as J.Lo, recommends warming up the nail polish remover before using it for easier removal. She of course warns to not put it in the microwave as it is flammable, but running it under hot water can help with the process. Or, Elle adds that you can even remove your polish in the shower, in the hot steam.

My cuticles also crack really easily, even with lotion and cuticle treatment, and I hate it. So I trim them.

I take it back. The big flecks aren't glitter at all, but are just lighter, shiny, metallic flakes. You can see them better in this pic.

Zoya sent some nail "wheels" with samples of their colors. One had a blank side, so I tested Essie Shine of the times over some colors. I also took a pick of the Zoya flakies "wheel" they sent me. These colors look a lot more sheer when used alone in the in pics I've seen online. I also have the True & Feel collection wheels. If anyone is interested, LMK and I'll take a pic.

Zoya "wheel" (first pic)-Maisie, Opal, Chloe, Skyler+Maisie, Bevin+Opal, Tru+Chloe
Shine of the Times (last pic)- Sally Hansen True Tulip (very old bottle), Rimmel Purple Rain, Sinful Colors Aquamarine, Wet n Wild Heard it Through the Grapevine, Essie Nice is Nice, Zoya Poppy

I really like it over the SH True Tulip and Essie Nice is Nice. I'll try wearing it over Rimmel Purple Rain, but IDK if I'll like that for me.

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.

Here is a pic of my tiny nail beds. I envy everyone with long nail beds. My nails have to get pretty long to not look short and stubby.

This is Zoya's Kendal. I tried a few from their full coverage neutral collection when they were having their promotion. Also tried anchor and armor basecoat and topcoat. The polish goes on a bit lumpy, wonder if I am not waiting enough time for the basecoat to try. I am used to 99 cent polishes so I thought I'd be blown away by an $8 one so maybe I just have high expectations

My poor middle fingernail broke off trying to take a safety plug out of an outlet....ow ow ow!

Don't like the French I got yesterday and already chipped

This is very involved for my nails.
