Did Zoya prices go up in the US? Because they sure did here. From between €8 - €9 to €12. I still have a lot of Zoya's on my wantlist *sadface*.

I was at Walgreens and they had the new Fergie WnW polishes so I got the black & gold glitter...They are like $3.75 a bottle...A lil much for WnW.

BTW, was at Sally's yesterday and they're having a sale on China Glaze's Hunger Games series. $3.49 here in Chicago.

Not that I bought like 6 bottles, or anything.

Does anybody know if you can get a matte topcoat?

A bunch of companies make a matte topcoat. Even Chanel has one. I'm a failure at it though--any imperfection shows up with matte polishes.

What lavawitch said. I have BL matte topcoat - I like it over metallics (and have read that it's pretty cool over glitters too), but with cremes it can be kind of unforgiving. Still, it can be fun!

POLL:

How many weeks do you go between manis (not professional or no-chip manis)?

And in what state are your manis when you redo?

Thanks!

I don't go more than a week. I redo them once they don't look professional enough for work (visible chips)

Thanks, I got a matte polish and was thinking that it would be pointless to paint a shiny topcoat over it!

I redo my nails several times a week. Mostly my nails seem to chip straight away but they are never too bad. I haven't gotten the hang of "wrapping the tips" yet.

Matte polish and shiny topcoat usually = a satin-y finish. Try it, you might like it! I've also read about "sandwiching" a layer of basecoat in-between layers of matte lacquer:

Heheh. Well, I restrained myself for 3 months. Just ordered Butter London Trout Pout and Bossy Boots. Probably going to get some of the China Glaze fall colours too.

Yeah, I only buy nail polish when it's on sale, so I may buy six bottles in one go but that's after not buying any for two months and then those six bottles will cost me, max, $30.

I restrained myself for 20 odd years or so. Seriously, I can't remember exactly when I last used polish. Maybe 1992? Maybe Mid-80s? Formulas have improved bunches and they don't seem to make my nails yellow and brittle this time around. In fact, I'm growing out 3 split nails using BL's Horse Power strengthener (not really horses) as a basecoat and stronger top coats than we had back then.

Sandwiching does appear to be working for me:

-BL Horse Power strengthener
-2 coats of BL artful Dodger
-1 topcoat of Revlon quick dry topcoat
-1 coat of WnW Grey's Anatomy sheer holo/frost/thingie
-another coat of Revlon

=will be 1 week this Wed., no chips yet, VERY very slight wear on the tip of one exuberant finger ;-] Evidently I type a lot of Fs on the keyboard.

TIP: pun intended, paint the tips first then pull polish down over them and they DO meld together like that website said. Tips staying on longer this time.

This is me too. I've never paid full price for a polish. It's all clearance or super good promos. My husband got an amazing deal on butter london stuff for me for mothers day and until I knew that I almost murdered him for what I thought he had spent.

Thanks!

I do my nails once a week, sometimes twice. I can't stand chipped polish so once most of the tips have worn, I remove the polish and either re-do them or wear Nubar Nu Nail for the rest of the week until I do my nails for the weekend

I do mine at least once a week, sometimes twice if I'm going out. I can't stand chipped polish either or bare nails!

I was poking fun! I spend about the same, but my addiction to CC keeps my collection all on one shelf. If only I could say the same for my books.

When my dad built the shelf for me, it was fun trying to explain why one would need 4 shades of red that look the same. He didn't see the distinction between berry or blue-based or brown, creme vs shimmer...

The fall colors are online now, so I should have waited on Diwali. Hopefully the fall colors will actually still be available in the fall because I want Vertigo. Confusing that they are reusing old names again. This Vertigo is black with red shimmer; old was a red shimmer.

I love blackened colors but don't have much interest in them during the summer. Anyone else? Then in the fall I get anxious to pull them back out.

Illamasqua Swinger and Orly Luxe are pretty!

Ugh. I keep looking at Chanel May. I want a pink shade like this: http://songofstyle.blogspot.com/2012/06/florence-tourist.html

Sorry for the huge images--any ideas? BL Teddy Girl is good, but a little too light. BL Alcopop is a little too pink. Plus the formula isn't great to work with for both Teddy Girl and Alcopop. Well, for me anyway, hard to get even.

BTW: LW, found the lipstick I was looking for at Neimans. Loved the formula, but the color didn't do it for me.

Chanel May is a bit darker--it is a light to medium bubblegum pink. The formula is nice, but the color isn't anything unique. Are Jessica polishes vegan? I saw that they duped the Chanel spring colors.

Glad you tried the color and didn't find out after ordering. I really love the coco shines. I've been wearing Flirt almost exclusively since April. I want another dozen or so! I'll probably buy one for fall in November.
