@nerdcorner It depends on what you're looking for in a polish! Illamasqua and MAC are both legendary for their intense colors and crazy high pigment payoff, Chanel always manages to create the season's must-have shades, and for nail wraps NCLA and Sally Hansen both make gorgeous strips that wear well. For wearability and selection, we also adore Essie and Butter London!

@niallersnandos4ever We love the current bright yellow trend too, but for this piece we rely on what new products are most popular among members, and it seems like the community is really feeling blues and pinks right now! Wouldn't be surprised to see canary sneaking into the most popular polishes in the next couple weeks, though ;)
