Just got around to it last night, actually! Mango Madness by ELF, but I think it's more of a coral. The actual Coral I have from them has gold flecks in it, and I preferred this one this time!

I love that coral, AP!

Bluedawg - I like Dragon and Storm, they look so good with all the micro silver flecks

This took forever, but was fun to do (deets on the blog)

And I read about this stuff on a blog so I ordered some, it smells like apples :) And, it comes in pen form, but I'm still waiting on that to arrive

Is SpaRitual avail. only online and in salons in the USA?

I think I had the pen one, Kitteh, if it's what I'm thinking of. I liked it because the cap also had a soft cuticle pusher.

Kitteh, that is amazing. Maybe your best yet, at least until your next one.

I wish I had lovely nails worth painting. Kitteh, you last few designs have been particularly amazing.

Kitteh that is awesome!

Shockingly my godawful paint job is still on and not even 1 chip! It's been 5 days, I am surprised. (It will chip now I've said that but I'm not that bothered because it looks terrible anyway!)

Have you guys heard about CND Vinylux? I'm kind of interested to try it! My manis are only lasting me a few days now (too much water exposure), and if this really lasts a week without chipping it'd be a nice break from having to find the time to change my polish every few days.

Dior Violet Colorvision. I love the finish on it, it reminds me a lot of an old Chanel called Dream Gloss that I hoard very carefully, so that makes me happy. I like pretty much any color along the purple spectrum. This one is pale, but the plastic look it has gives it enough of an edge not to be a cutesy pastel.

The Dior formula seems nicer these days (and it seems pretty odor free!), but I don't have many to compare. Still hate the brush, so won't buy unless it's a sensational color, but wear time seems great.

I ordered Chanel Emprise since I was looking for a nice neutral shade with some pinky undertones to it. I haven't seen it in person, but I did a google image search to get a better idea of what it looks like on. Hopefully I like it! If not, it really wasn't -such- a bad deal considering the free shipping and samples. Dior's Spring Ball looks really lovely and I was very tempted to order that as well, but they require a purchase of $50 or more for free shipping, so maybe next time...

I'm currently wearing Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air. It's nice, but I think I did like 4 coats to try and build up some opacity because without it, it made my nails look... cyanotic? So it'll probably dent and peel pretty quickly... I'll have to pick up a base coat that's a complimentary shade next time I'm at Ulta. I think the Zoya brand might be calling my name, but their color selection was VERY picked over when I was looking a few days ago, so hopefully they'll restock soon.

You know, after not really wearing nail polish for years, the past couple of weeks I've been really into it! I guess I've learned to use a steadier hand so I don't paint outside the lines so badly anymore. I'm still not great at it, but I'm improving!

I don't have Emprise because I never got any Spring colors. I've got a huge box of summer stuff coming though! My birthday present from mom. Metallic green and blue!

The Dior jelly lip pens look nice; no idea yet if vegan.

Yes!!! It sounds awesome and it dries in 8 minutes i believe. But I get 2 weeks out of Gelicure and Im hard on my nails.

The plus side of vinylux though is that it can be removed like regular polish.

Chanel Blue Boy, which now has me in the mood to listen to Cyndi Lauper. I got some bubbles though. Maybe because the overhead fan is in high.

Is this the right place to ask for tips on keeping nail polish from chipping? Is it down to the brand or is the secret using the base and top coats?

I never bothered with any prep in the past, just painted the polish on but recently I bought Zoya base coat, top coat and drying coat and using these (plus cleaning my nails first with polish remover) really improved how long my Zoya polish lasted before chipping. But when I used the same combo with a Spa Ritual polish it chipped off almost straight away. Do I really have to fork out for all the SR products to make their polish last?

Post subject:  Re: What nail polish are you wearing?

Base coat and top coat will help. I posted some tips in here previously about helping your mani not chip. But one I've found that helps (and I can't remember if I mentioned it before) is after you've cleaned your nails with remover, wash with soap and dry them well. This is because unless you're removing your polish with pure acetone, there will be oils in your remover and any oils will contribute to faster chipping.

Don't do your mani soon after getting out the bath or shower and definitely do not soak your nails first. Water makes the nail plate expand and by the time you've painted them and it's dried, your nail plate will shrink back and this could encourage chipping.

Then the usual.... wear gloves for cleaning, don't use your nails as tools... etc
