i am constantly changing my nail polish color depending on outfit, mood, or inspiration. since i always do this i've ended up with a collection that i've worked on building up, and one that i've become very happy with. from accumulating different polishes, i've come up with my favorites from different brands along with looks that i love


favorite nail polishes: butter london, essie, opi, chanel, revlon 

favorite colors:
butter london tea with the queen
butter london union jack black
butter london hen party
butter london british racing green
butter london old bill
essie neon colors
essie nude beach
essie sand tropez
essie sweet talker 
opi prussian navy
revlon fast drying polishes
there are a few others, but i can't remember!

essie has great color range, and the brush is a bit smaller which is easier to wield. 

opi has fun names, a lot of colors, but sometimes i have issues with the brush dispensing too much polish.

i honestly think my favorite brand has to be butter london. it's a bit expensive, but i love the results.


favorite nail combinations:

a pastel color on all your nails such as a light pink, with a neon color on one finger of each hand as an accent color. light pink looks great with hot pink, peach with bright orange, etc.

nude nails with an accent color of silver or gold glitter on each ring finger.

these days nail art and experimentation is huge, but it's nice to just have a basic manicure. i love a basic nude manicure with butter london's tea with the queen.

go dark with a metallic emerald, navy or a matte jet black. it looks sophisticated and with a bit of nail polish remover to clean up your cuticles, is easy to accomplish.

a reverse french manicure is another fun look. go for a frosted champagne or nude color on your nails and for the french manicure part, try a bronze color.

i like the ombre look when it comes to glitter polish! start with a white base and blue glitter. concentrate the most glitter at the top of your nail and then drag the brush down to distribute some of the glitter. do the same with nude and gold glitter. 

paint your nails in a mossy green or sage green. finish it off with a coat of gold glitter polish. don't go on a glitter overload though! 

try a black or navy manicure with white polka dots. totally chic, but fun at the same time!
