Nails
 
Discuss all things nails.

Your favorite brands, fake/acrylic nails, colors, designs, nail care, tips/tricks, etc.

I love LOVE water marbled nails, but it's so hard to color coordinate/choose the right brands. And the entire process itself is tedious and takes hours (for me at least). BUT the results are gorgeous and I wish my nails were long enough to really show off the marble.

I don't really use fancy designs. They take too much work. I used to go for dark colors like black and dark blue last year, but this year I'm more into soft and unassuming palettes.

My current go-to color is Orly in Cupcake, which I have been wearing daily for the past 3 months.

WHITE OUT 8D8D8D


But no, really. I like all different brands. I love all different colors, too.

I absolutely love all things MAC, their nail polishes are amazing.
I really need to start wearing nail polish again, my nails have been clean for the past few months.
Just a few swatches I found online since I don't feel like digging for them now. D:


I wore that nail polish for the longest time.


I saw this one, and fell inlove with it. It's a really nice pink.


Another favorite.

I had the biggest obsession with Chanel a few years back, and this was one of the only nail polishes that I ever loved from them, besides a gold one they had, and I lost. ;;


A picture can't even show it's true color, it's so pretty.


As for fake nails, I've only gotten them done a few times, more recently they're gels, one time I got black nails, white tips, another I got pretty blue, with hot pink tips, and I don't even remember the other times... I'm getting them done again soon, and am still debating which colors. :py07:

And then I used to get acrylics when I was younger, but it was just white tips.

And for designs, I don't do them at all...I don't have a steady enough hand to do it, and wouldn't be able to do anything on my right hand. Plus I'm usually a perfectionist when it comes to any cosmetic, I would just end up removing it 20 times before I'm okay with it.

Also most of the brands I buy are wet & wild or OPI. The former being more prominent in my collection because my uni's pharmacy sells them and I use leftover food debit to buy them haha.

My current nails:



Skin Food creamy base/Sally Hansen white (forgot the exact name)/OPI silver sparkles top coat

I've had them for almost about a week. Usually I like to switch it up every few days or so. I have way too many colors to settle with just one for long periods of time.

Degoutant 03-08-2012 07:50 AM

I used to design my nails
here's one of my designs: ANGRY BIRDS wooh


but now that I barely find time, I just polish them with some elegant colours, like black, blue, EMERALD green (one of my fav. colours). and uh, I've been always sneaking for space nails but I fail at it. ;_;Q

here comes a bunch of pics I DO NOT OWN with colours i like:
Spoiler!

Yup and nowadays, I also go with metallic colours like silver, gold and copper. 8)

*will post more pics maybe

Valese 03-08-2012 10:10 AM

I love the blue satin one Settie posted...omg....

Well, I usually wear any pretty shade of red or pink or a mix of the 2.

Current nails:



I suck at putting on nailpolish and keeping them clean like that.. I usually rub it somewhere, or hit or bump in something and it gets messed up :py56:

Shanni 03-08-2012 11:19 PM

Ohhh, my kind of thread 8D

My collection so far~ (sorry its such a dark image q_q)

I've been buying a lot of Essie brand polishes lately. I just love their soft shaded pigments and their smooth application for a drug store polish.

My favorite color at the moment is Orgasm by NARS
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_5ZNvkL6oMM...atch+flash.jpg
$18.00 from SEPHORA

I just love the way it changes color in the light. :py33:

That is gorgeous.

You guys and all your fancy stuff. I'm so cheap, the only nail polish I've bought is that insta-dri by Sally Hansen, like $4-5. That line got rid of all the best colors though. :<

I really enjoy darker colors, but after seeing the pictures in this thread, I kind of want to try some light ones.

http://www.stephscloset.com/blog/ima...large-1468.jpg

I have the third one and wish I had the first two, but those are discontinued. ;_; These really do dry in about a minute, too.

Jessica 03-09-2012 09:25 AM

I have some Sally Hansen insta-dri somewhere.. I don't remember the colors. I'll go find them to check. I really liked them though, they dried pretty quick, and they stayed put/didn't chip for awhile, too.

I really need to find all my nail polishes and put them together. D: They're so scattered.

I went digging and found a few nail polishes I like.



Gold one I thought I lost. ;D





That's it for Chanel, now for some other MAC.




Gonna paint my nails this color.


My only silver.




Nikeos 03-09-2012 10:49 AM

You're making me want to go out and buy a ton of nail polish. D:

This is what I'm currently wearing, it's called Handpicked for Me, couldn't get a good shot with decent light so thank god for google; I love this shade of pink.

I want to go out and buy nail polish too now. qq

I wish I could do cool designs D: The crackled nail polish was really in last summer, I didn't really like it though. I usually tend to go for pinks and reds, but I think I want to expand on my color collection.

Ohohohoho pink and red lover like me :py01:

I really love that shade of pink btw. :<

Aimee 03-10-2012 04:06 AM

I used to wear a metallic blue or green a lot, but I get stressed putting it on because I fiddle with stuff and have to start over. So I just wear a quick-dry clear one now for shiny shiny /o/

Ascherit 03-10-2012 09:34 PM

Finally got to re-paint my nails~

Spoiler!


and here's my humble little collection

Spoiler!

Nikeos 03-11-2012 08:16 PM

Went to a Sally's today and picked up two China Glaze polishes for $10.

Painted my nails this color:


Got this color too:


Wish my nails would grow out more. >: This thread has me all wanting to do my nails and start a collection. qq

Queen 03-11-2012 09:33 PM

ITT creating nail polish addicts.

Srsly I want to expand my collection so much now D: I think I want to find a nice purple/blue.

Jessica 03-11-2012 10:17 PM

I really wish I had a proper storage. All my make up is in two dresser drawers, and a few bags. Dx I'd take a picture if they were all organized. D8

And for those that have thin nails, dry nails, pretty much bad nails, there's a cream I use. It's a bit pricey for a nail cream, but a little goes a long way, and it can be used for many different things. I like to put it on my lips before I go to bed, or my elbows when they're dry, and they're soft when I wake up. On the nails after a week of use my nails were shiny and got a nice shade of peach, it looked like I was wearing nail polish but wasn't. I'm very bad at using new things every day, I always forget to, so I can't really say anything about long term use.

Dior Crème Abricot Fortifying Cream

And I've been wanting to try this:

nails inc. Magnetic Polish

In Houses Of Parliament and Whitehall Teal
okay maybe Trafalgar Square, too after watching the see it in action video. 8D
