In addition to MAC's Comic Cute, here are just some of my other bright corals:

 

BL's Trout Pout

Essie's Tangerine, Camera, Brazilliant & Tart Deco

MAC's Kid Orange & Oriele

OPI's How Cute is That?

 

Thank you so much for this list, Medgal th_hug.gif

 

 

I do only have Tart Deco and will get Fracas soon.....I think that I need more bright corals icon_eek.gif

Butter London has two really nice shades of blue: "Royal Navy" & "Big Smoke"

 

If those are too dark "Bluey" is pretty also.  If you like dark green "British Racing Green" is gorgeous.

 

I'm a huge Butter London fan. After I fell in love with "All Hail the Queen" I just kept buying more.

 

Cafe Makeup has some good pics of it-- http://cafemakeup.com/2010/07/21/butter-london-all-hail-mcqueen/

 

I love how in so many of their n/p there is great shimmer but not chuncky glitter. But if you like glitter there are some pretty ones I've bought for gifts. My daughter-in-law squealed when I gave her "Disco Biscuit"  It's bright pink and sparkly, her two favorite things.

 

For the most part BL has great n/p but like all brands there are a few duds here and there.

 

Most of my n/p is Butter London & Deborah Lippmann

^^Sorry if I repeated things you guys have already covered. I just saw this thread and decided to pop on here.

I didn't realize this was so pretty. Did it apply well? If so I gotta pick this up.

Found this over in the Dior thread, definitely something to look forward to!

^ I was also drooling over that pic! Dior seems to put out some nice colours! Just last weekend I got the beautifully orange Aurora palette from last summer 50% off (and an EL palette), and these palettes and polishes are calling me, too!

I'll definitely try the combo with the DL polish MRV posted about! Looks incredibly pretty. Though I like it on its own, too!

 

 

I don't know what happened yesteday but I managed to order Raindrops even though it was out of stock for days before my order and again right after my order. I checked out the situation yesterday morning - out fo stock - then ordered some polishes from a few places (incl. DL Glitter in the Air), and suddenly Raidrops was there! I also got Mottle and Speckle. Those are the only good colours for me.

Cute! I just got my Archie's black box, and now I need only this and maybe a few items from Veronica.

I've been collecting BLs of late, too. Which ones do you think are duds?

Lol, OK. I may cut the coke nail. My pinky is usually my longest nail, so I'm used to it being a different length than the others. But it does look a little weird seeing it in the pics. It kind of throws off the Triad design. My right hand is all the same length and the design makes more sense.

That pinky color is gorgeous...    If anyone knows a dupe let me know...

Possible Chanel Blue Satin dupes: Revlon Midnight Affair, Essie Midnight Cami, Illamasqua Phallic. I haven't tried or own any of these polishes to know for certain if they're dupes. I think they're color matches, but I don't know if they have Chanel's hidden blue shimmer. I'm biased and say to just get the Chanel. poke.gif I am planning to get Essie Midnight Cami and Illamasqua Phallic at some point.

Oh sweet baby jesus!! I need Taboo and I originally didn't think Azure would be something I liked but now I'm second guessing that. I wonder when they will be released here.

LOL I know how hard it is! My mom used to hate cutting her nails if one broke. I used to tell her to cut them all and they will grow back the same length. I did her mani once and she was yapping away on the phone.. by the time she was done all her nails were short lmao. I think she shed a tear that day but later thanked me!

I missed this comment. It depends on my mood, what color I feel like wearing, what's in my face at the time I'm about to polish my nails, what I'm wearing/going to wear, or if I feel like wearing a particular brand. I often change my mind even right up to the moment I'm about to apply a polish because another color caught my eye. The nail sticks help a lot so I can see all of my colors quickly. I still need to swatch all of the new Essies, A-Englands and China Glazes I got recently.

 

After I remove the Chanel Blues, I was planning to wear some Dior colors or maybe one of the A-Englands. But my two Illamasqua Nomad and Mottle polishes were delivered yesterday, so I think I'm going to wear Nomad next. It's a gorgeous green in the bottle. I like how Illamasqua puts a matching color sticker of the polish on the lid of the box. Very cute.

Med, that's a fun idea! Your collection is larger mine, so you do the same.

post #3196 of 15013

I'm totally confused. I thought Azure would be part of the summer collection? And to which collection does Taboo belong too, or is it going to be perm?

I also had a look at Douglas online and there was not only Apparition but a golden IdO I never heard about before - Convoitise. I feel confused.

What about declaring Monday (or any other day) the official nail polish thread recommodation day? We al could have a look at the polishes we wore the week before and give a recommodation (or not, as Medgal said!) to our fellow NPAs?

post #3198 of 15013

Sorry, I am not very good at doing nail wheel swatches but I tried my best blush-anim-cl.gif

 

Especially the shimmer of Taboo is extremely hard to photograph.It looks just dark in the pic ssad.gif

 

 

HTH anyway!

What a lovely list of corals. Corals are one of my favorite polish colors. love.gif  All of the Essies I have so far are either a coral/peach or a mint/green shade. I still haven't picked up Butter London Trout Pout or Macbeth. I need to fix that. Here's my coral list.

 

Chanel - Distraction, Fracas, Orange Fizz

China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy, High Hopes, Surreal Appeal

Essie - Van D'Go, Shop Till I Drop, Tart Deco, Peach Daiquiri

Zoya - Kara

Azure is part of the Summer 2013 collection, along with Lilis and Bel-argus. Taboo is part of the Revelation de Chanel/ Levres Scintillantes collection.

Yes, it is hard! I didn't realize I was so attached to it. And what you talkin' bout honey with Tutu? I think it looks great on you. The color in your pic is how it actually looks on me when I swatched it, a whitish pink. It looks similar to the pic Med posted wearing Butter London Teddy Girl. I'm really surprised how much I like the way Tutu looked on me. I wouldn't normally buy such a pale pink color.

Vendetta is much more blue/purple than Taboo!

I passed out. I love that they're different. Now I'm even more excited. Taboo is showing up as backordered until 3/22 on NeimanMarcus.com. I'll wait for it to pop up at Saks, Nordstrom or Chanel. I think it will become available before that date.
