    The finish sounds kind of weird, but I am interested in seeing Stay the Night (matte black with red glints)!

    Yay! It's about time we had a dedicated np thread!

    Today I'm wearing I Love Bad Boys by Essence. It's the most beautiful blue! So beautiful, in fact, it made it to my top 5 blues overnight! It's that gorgeous. It's hard to describe, but it's dusty and bright at the same time. And it has some pretty amazing greenish hidden shimmer. Not too hidden though, so you can see it without having to squint. lol.

    I can't say anything about wear time yet because I only applied it last night. But hey, it's cheap as chips so I wouldn't be too annoyed if it chipped a bit by the second day...

    If there are some blue np lovers out there I highly recommend it

    Ugh, I'm super frustrated. I tried doing a lightning bolt tape mani last night for a football game I'm going to tomorrow and all the yellow polishes I have are too thin/runny and made my mani look like crap. I started over like 4 times before giving up.

    Does anyone know of a thicker formula yellow polish? I used OPI The It Color and something else I'm forgetting haha. I forgot how watery yellow polishes tend to be!

    milani's yellow wiz is not that bad. but then i dont use yellow polish alot. maybe if you put a white line coat? all the yellow polishes i have from orly and finger paints stink. most nails gurus use acrylic paint.
    sorry i wasnt helpful.

    Yeah, I saw a lot of references to acrylic paint while researching all of this, haha. I don't use yellow too often as well, the ones I had were from my attempt to do marble nails haha.

    It's tough b/c my base is is navy and that's already pretty dark. I might just use silver and outline with yellow. Thanks!

    OK here we go:
    - RBL 360 (one of the very few polishes I have BU of. I'll probably never get round to using it though. Maybe when I'm 80)
    - Barielle June Bug (light dusty blue + magenta glitter = EPIC WIN)
    - BB Couture Junk in the Trunk (a very clear, bright, in-your face blue)
    - BB Couture Moon over Manhattan (my first ever BB Couture polish )
    - Essence I Love Bad Boys (the newbie in the list!)

    Bonus: Nubar Indigo Illusion - is it blue? is it pink? is it green? No idea, but I love it anyways

    Jeez, that was more difficult than I thought. I should have said top 10 instead (or 20. lol). I feel bad about all my other wonderful blues that didn't make the list!

    come on they are all beautiful!!! now i have to try these.

    my list of blues is pretty simple:
    China glaze for audrey<- baby tiffany blue
    Orly Calypso Breeze
    Opi ogre the top blue
    Orly walk down the isle.<-- its almots gone.
    Finger paints blue rasberry taffy

    and Opi Russian Navy vampy? dark blue for the fall. as you can see mine are mainly cream polishes and not as cool as the ones you have.

    yes they do! I have a few similar colors already but they are both different from my other aquas and periwinkles.... I'm wearing. Illamasqua's Creator today I applied two days ago it chipped today. I don't own a base coat. do they really help? any recommendations? I do a lot of dishes and I'm a cashier so my nails chip every few days but I don't mind cuz then I just change my polish! I bought so many this year omg! I've been on a roll this year with cosmetics!! and just about everything else :/ lol

    the thing about basecoats and nail strengtheners is that you have to go trough alot of them to find the one that works for you. i like nail life revitalizer from sally, seche rebuild and the retain one, which you can also find at sallys and sometimes get free if you buy 2 china glaze or orly polishes. for the dishes i would recommend gloves, the big thick ones . i dont do dishes now, but when i had chores, i would just wear gloves to do anything, water weakens your nails, and the soap can be harsh on you hands.

    A nail polish thread, awesome

    Although i still need to haul the OPI James Bond polishes, i'm already mesmerized by those Central Europe polishes
    They all look really cute, especially 'You're Such A Budapest', definitely need to get my hands on that one
