I have never been very big on nailpolishes but over the past year my collection has expanded quite dramatically from zero to nine! Well, I suppose nine is probably not much but I love them all. Colours that I'm not a fan of goes straight into the bin or donated to my little sister.
So here are all my nine little darlings. A large majority from OPI, but with some from illamasqua, Chanel, Lunasol, Sephora by OPI, and GOSH.
I hardly ever splurge on high-end nailpolishes. However, I decided to try at least one Chanel and one illamasqua nail polish over the past few months. I have not regret making these purchases and I can see why they're priced a little more than our dear cousins in the drugstore.
Chanel formulations are beautifully pigmented and application seems easier too. The only Chanel nailpolish I own, Black Pearl, has a brush that makes application precise and easy. On the other hand, I seem to always make a mess out of my illamasqua's Throb Nail Varnish. That said, illamasqua nailpolishes have a top-notch reputation for pigmentation.
And wait for it... my Chanel Black Pearl nailpolish bottle is now half full (or half empty, however you like to view it!). I've worn this shade week after week and still catch myself gazing at the colour. It's a gorgeous shade and is incredibly work friendly. It takes a little bit more guts to wear illamasqua throb to the office though.
I love cool toned nailpolishes. Probably because I have cool undertones.
And the underdog nailpolish has got to be GOSH. For a drugstore nailpolish and probably the least expensive nailpolish out of my entire collection, it achieves great opacity. I haven't had a chance to look at the other shades yet but Pink Rose is a bright barbie pink colour that makes me feel like a teenager again.
In summary, it's not alot but I'm really happy with what I have at the moment.
What nailpolishes would you recommend? I'm going to the US next week and I'm thinking of buying a few more there! Woopie!
