Also realised that I can get OPI local too and all of GOSH polishes are vegan so I am off exploring the world of nail varnish tomorrow. My nails are all filed and ready to rock and roll.



I know Nails Inc polishes are vegan, and I think all the Barry M ones are, though I don't have access to Barry M so I'm not an expert. Models Own polishes are vegan too if you can get those.

Thanks! The place I went to today only had GOSH so I got Ocean. It is drying right now. The splash of colour has definitely brightened my mood.

I have decided to get back into nail polishes for the summer, especially on my toes. Some badly fitting shoes have left me with bruises under toenails which is an icky look for sandals. I dread to think how bad I'll be at applying it though. I haven't worn it in years :P

Nail polish thread is scary! I thought you all would appreciate this.

One of the blogs seems strangely familiar.

Don't worry about it! You can always use a cheap flat paintbrush or old eyeliner brush dipped in nail polish remover to clean up.

Just a heads up, Haute Look has Orly polishes and Spa Ritual treatments right now.

Ooh, nice! That reminds me, though, that CVS has had all Orly polishes marked down 50% lately.

Kelly, that sucks! Every CVS around here has them. Not a huge selection, but they're there.

Is it a super recent thing or have they been there awhile? It's been a few months since I checked 2 of those stores. I've been really into Orly lately, I feel like it doesn't chip nearly as fast as zoya does.

They've been there for as long as I can remember. I don't own many Orly polishes, but I've found them to chip less than Zoya too. Oddly the ones that chip the most for me are the $$$ Butter Londons.

Orly is definitely one of my favorite brands, making up at least a third of my polish collection. I've seen them in CVS in other cities, but haven't looked here. It's usually in a larger store that has a dedicated nail polish aisle, and it's got maybe 3 tiny shelves of display space. Every time I've seen Orly in a CVS, I was disappointed in the color selection.

so funny! i have amazing luck with zoya and butter london, but i have a feeling i owe a lot of that to the zoya color lock dealie and not just the colors themselves.

i have only one bottle of orly, but it always chips on me within 24 hours so i never wear it.

in other news... i just threw a bottle of deborah lippmann mermaid's dream in my zappos order for sanuk flip-flops. i blame calcuhater. <3

CVS only carries granny colors - some of which I do like, but if you don't want a small selection of pinks and reds, you aren't missing much. Also they're on sale because CVS has a summer sale every year to clear out old stock. I was hoping the base/top coats would be on sale but I scanned one and they're not.

Butter London is also the one that chips on me the most. I lost an entire nail in a perfect sheet at work one day, less than 24 hours after painting!

ALSO YOU GUYS. LOOK WHAT I SAW AT MEJIER TODAY.

Image

They're made by Color Club, and I don't even care that they change colors, they are so pretty. Since they're $6, I only got Birdie and Desert Valley. Now i'm off to look up reviews and find out they're horrible, since that's usually what happens when I buy a color that I think is tits and unique.

Moonstone looks pretty.

If they are Color Club, they ought to be decent enough unless they change to ugly colors, in which case just stay out of the sun!

I bought one Ruby Wings at a nail supply store in LA, haven't used it yet. That also reminds me that I need to post a photo of my US polish haul!

Thanks :) On the same day as that post a friend told me that she's put a mention of my blog in the new issue of the magazine that she works at, she's sending me a copy next week.

Ditto, I think BL are the worst for me, plus I get major shrinkage with the BL glitters. But, I still buy them and love their colour range.

I put a coat of the glitter I got (the actual polish is supposed to change from clear to purple) on my thumbs over my blue polish just to see what it was like, then I remembered that it was completely overcast. Balls.

Each one comes with a tag to show you what they change into, some just get darker but the yellow I got turns to orange.

You're so sweet! I would never use it, though. I've tried doing glitters before and I never like them on myself, even when they look like cake. I rarely even like polishes with sparkle or shimmer in them. I'm boring and pretty much always prefer creams.

I will keep an eye out for those Ruby Wing polishes, Gypsy and Eclipse look pretty regardless of what they change into.

Jojo, cute!

Amanda - the universe does in fact owe you something awesome.

I bit my nails off so I went with Zoya Barbie so it wouldn't be too obvious. Now wondering how Butter Black Knight would look over it . . .

i know this is a longshot, but does anyone own BOTH of the following colors: zoya blair + deborah lippmann bisques brew? i'm trying to figure out how close they are, but i can't really find anything useful online, as far as head to head comparisons. thanks!
