Oh and snarkyvegan, I use ORLY Bonder too and have the same problem with BL polishes. Those two just do not go well together, I mentioned my BL problem a few pages back about how The Dark Knight chipped in less than 12 hours and while I was at work, I scratched my palm and my entire thumb nail came up in a perfect sheet. I know most polishes work best with their own brand of base, but that is ridic. I love Bonder otherwise.

Thanks for the confirmation! I wondered if that was the problem. So what does ORLY bonder work with other than ORLY polish? I guess I'm still looking for an awesome basecoat and top coat. I could deal with the smell of SV but not the speed with which you have to apply it over wet polish. I'm not that quick now that I have a shaky left hand. Takes me forever to do a paint job.

Thanks to everyone for the discussion on top and base coats. This really helps!


Bonder works fine with CG, and okay with Zoya. I really don't want to go on a wild goose chase to find the one base/top that works with every brand of polish, mostly because I have two bottles of Bonder since I lost one, bought a new one, and then found it.

I need to thin out my topcoat, i'm pretty sure that using straight up acetone is a no no? Help?


You need polish thinner. Just make sure it's a 3 free version if your top coat is 3 free. Zoya makes a good one.

Thanks, i've had all of these Share the Love points burning a hole in my pocket and Zoya hasn't had a good deal in awhile anyway...I have just enough to get a $20 off code.

I got the drops and then Aurora and Storm to hit over $20. I didn't get anything else because I know they're going to pop up with a promo on Black Friday.

Chanel Black Velvet.

Never really worn it before. Its basically Chanel's version of a rubber matte. Application must be perfect or it looks like hell.

I guess I'm on my polish game tonight because it looks awesome: inky, black, tons of depth. It makes me feel witchy. Outfit for work tomorrow is black jeans, black faux silk dress shirt, black cami, and kmouse's lovely vampire bat necklace. very comforting.

Sounds lovely, lavawitch.

I'm feeling obnoxiously bright with three layers of Wet N Wild Teal of Fortune.

I have an insane combination of 2 Orly Flash Glam FX glitters on right now that I kind of love. Can't be tamed, Mermaid tail, and Spazmatic. Mermaid tail is the prettiest glitter ever!

Last night I put on Zoya's Ki (dark, inky purple with green duochrome), and my topcoat is so awful that it forked up two of my nails and when I tried to fix it, of course smudged them. So I just put a little Ki on the smudged parts and then i'm going to do what I always do to hide mistakes: GLITTERRRRRRRRRRR

Yeah, but I wear a lot of glitter and sometimes I don't want to, so I get pissed when I have to put it on to hide mistakes since I can't (or shouldn't) just take it off with remover and repaint them.

Has anyone tried Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream yet? I was in Ulta last night and saw their display for Lippmann polishes. Fell in love with it in the bottle but thought I see what you guys think before plunking down the cash. It was kinda mesmerizing, in the bottle. I couldn't stop staring at it.

I do book swaps with an awesome friend in the USA and she was going to surprise me by including some polish this time. A woman at Nordstrom talked her into Deborah Lippmann and told her it was 100% vegan, but she went home and googled it to find out if it was vegan and she found a thread talking about guanine and I was like "it was on the PPK right?" hahaha, it was so us :)

Snap! I only found out about this colour this morning but I put it on my list for my friend to pick from. It looks amazing.

Ha, love this! Glitter is good at hiding so much.

They have told us they are vegan and that the guanine is synthetic, there were just some questions in here about if there really is synthetic guanine. So I am still willing to wear it and I think most others are too, I own one bottle because they are $35 in Aus but I am happy for my friend to send me some from the US :)

That's lovely, your stamping is great. Mine is always wonky! I just bought a load of bundle monster plates and a new stamp so I can practice stamping.

Thanks, lovelies! I was actually going to do black but lately I cannot get Orly Liquid Vinyl to work with the plates/stamper, it worked fine in the past and I haven't added any thinner or anything. So I went with the navy and I think it was a better choice in the end. Also, that is Molly (good name right, LW!), who happily posed while spying on the birds outside.

last week i was wearing zoya carey:

Image
zoya carey by vegan.chai, on Flickr

it's similar to dove, but i like it better... dove is more "concrete" grey, this is softer/cooler and i think it's better with my skintone.

this week, i'm back to an old favorite, zoya jana. <3

My Black Velvet chipped this evening. Not too bad for a no top coat polish.

I'll have to try out the matte top coat next week.

My gelicure's been on two weeks and I have some tip wear and where there is tip wear, my crappy cheap dark jeans have dyed all the tips of my nails dark blue. It looks so gross. Can't wait to re-do them tomorrow.

Zoya's Black Friday deal:

http://www.zoya.com/content/38/category ... olish.html

$20 for three polishes with free shipping ain't bad, especially if you do want to give it as a gift and want the fancy box.

It looks lovely and now I like it better than Dove, too!

My sis gave me some of her old polish (it's been in storage for 2+ years):
Zoya Michelle, Natio Mystic, BYS Ultra Violet, BYS - no idea of the name as the label has been removed, CG Royal Tease, CG Secrets, CG Oh How Street It Is, CG Rich & Famous, LA Colors Metallic Blue, L.A Colors Purple Passion, L.A Girl Naughty
