The Nail Varnish Tag

Favourite nail polish company?
I'd love to say OPI, however I simply cannot afford the prices they charge. So for the quality, range and price of their polishes... It has to be Barry M.

Glitter or no glitter?
Definitely glitter! The more glitter, the better I'd say :)
(Although its an absolute pain to remove)

OPI, China Glaze or Essie?
I've never tried an Essie polish, so out of the other two, I prefer OPI. 

When do you change your nail polish?
I know some people have a set "pamper day" each week. I don't, so I literally change my nail polish whenever I feel like it, usually when I come up with a pretty new design or idea :)

What's your favourite colour to wear on your nails?
I love pinks, pastels, and nude shades. Mainly because I think wearing lighter shades make you look more tanned... & I like a good tan(even if it does come out of a bottle).

Darks or brights?
I like them both, so I can't really choose. However I'm not keen on really bright neon colours.

What do you have on your nails right now?
Nothing right now, I'm letting my nails breathe for a little while. I last had my Valentines Day Nail Art on, however I removed it last night as I got a bit bored of it haha.

Matte nails... In or out?
I can honestly say I've never tried a matte nail varnish. I've got a few, but never got round to trying them. But I think they may be a little out-dated now? 

French Manicure?
Who doesn't love a good frenchie? Simple yet elegant :) 

Favourite Winter colour?
I posted about my favourite Autumn/Winter nail varnishes HERE if you'd like to have a look! 

Hope you enjoyed reading this tag as much as I've enjoyed filling it out!
If you decide to post this tag, leave your link below... I'd love to read it :)


  1. I'd really recommend trying out some Essie polishes - they're now my favourite brand! I actually wrote a post on an Essie haul and where I got them for a really good price - it's in my past posts :)

    1. Hi Amy!

      I'd really love to try them, I spend ages looking at them in store but then just can't bring myself to pay for them at the price they are! haha.

      I'll have a look at your Essie haul, thanks for letting me know :) xx

  2. Great post, I like this tag, and all of your answers! Have you tried looking around for OPI? Places like Asos and beauty bay often have them really cheap on comparison to their original price. I'm not a massive fan of essie to be honest. I find it doesn't apply very well, and takes ages to dry xx

    1. To be honest the only place I've ever seen discounted OPI is in TK Maxx. But they sell out so quickly. But thanks for letting me know, I'll check out those places to see if I can find any I like! :) xx

  3. I like this tag! OPI is expensive I love Barry M too. Ive done reviews on them in my blog:
