I guess I can't tell because you have polish on, but the pink part of my nails is only between 1/4 to 1/2 an inch, which seems crazy small compared to most of the fingernails I've seen in my life! I like them, though :)

Oh yeah, mine are way less than 1/2''! Definitely more like 1/4'', except on my thumb.

Butter London have released their autumn colours ... I need no more nail varnish ... actually, I need no nail varnish and only buy the expensive Butter bottles as the names so entrance me ... how shallow am I?

some new colour names ... Cake-Hole! Pimms! (pour me another!) Wellies (so suitable since it is often raining here), Silly Billy, Giddy Kipper and Cotton Buds to remove the lot ...

Guys, how well/long does China Glaze and/or Essie wear? Most of the (little) polish I have is Zoya stuff and total love how well it lasts, but I only know of one place I can get it locally (and they don't carry many colors) and I don't really want to pay like $7 in shipping for only a few colors.... I can get basically the same shades between CG and Essie, but if they don't last all that long I guess I'll just bite the bullet and pay the shipping.

(Note: for me, lasting long= getting 2 or 3 days of wear before it starts to chip)

I find that China Glaze wears better for me than Zoya does. Zoyas almost always chip within 2 days, China Glazes usually last about 4-5 before it gets dire.

Essie are owned by L'Oreal now and refused to answer Peta's questions on whether or not they test on animals. So out of the two brands I'd right off the bat recommend China Glaze. I'd also suggest Orly because it wears nice, there's a nice selection of colors, and the bottle has .6 fluid ounces of product versus the .5 fluid ounces from most brands.

Essie is also the most boring nail polish line ever, in my opinion. Which makes it even easier to not buy!

Last year I had to get something quick in CVS for a student having an awful time and got her some Essie purple and teal glitters. They had all sorts of cool looking glitter top coats too. I didn't know then that they were owned by L'Oreal though. Boo!

Essie never struck me as boring, but then again I'm not really a glitter girl, so if you are I can see how it would. I have a handful from before I found out they were bought up by L'Oreal/wouldn't sign the anti-testing statement. But between Zoya, China Glaze, Orly, Butter London, Color Club, Wet n Wild, and all the awesome smaller and indie brands, I don't miss Essie at all.

Speaking of glitter, I have not one, not two, but FOUR glitter polishes coming my way. Like I said, I never have been much of a glitter fan, but you guys are swaying me a little bit.

You must have posted while I was because I totally missed your post!

Thanks, I didn't realize Essie had been bought. I'll definitely stick to CG or Orly then!

Talking of glitters have you all seen the new Model's Own Splash collection? This blog has good swatches of all the colours, I love them, they're like a colourful CG Luxe & Lush

Those are super pretty, but I'm totally afraid from the photos that it's the super chunky flakes that never lay flat, and those make me crazy.

i've gotten three new bottles since i did my last mani, so i wanted to do quick swatching before doing my official mani/pedi for the week:

DL mermaid's dream (aka the bottle i bought on impulse because of calcy): so so pretty! it's like an icy minty frosty shimmer with flecks of turquoise blue. i'm doing this on tips and toes this week because i'm obsessed with how cute it will be as a pedi color.

zoya pandora: i've been wanting this one for awhile; i don't often wear really pale shades, and i don't own *any* pinks, but this is from their little set of three they did awhile back for the "mannequin hands" trend. this is the pinkest of the three, and i actually really, really like it on me. yay!

a england sleeping palace: GUH this woman and her beautiful holos! this is like a plum with a bronze cast to it, and it's sooooo pretty. perfect back-to-school color, in the family of something like chanel paradoxal/barry m dusky mauve. yum.

i'll post DL mermaid's dream pics when i've done my real mani with it. yay for loving all my purchases, ha!

bluedawg, did you order right through the A England site or did they find a US distributor?

What do you guys do with polishes you don't want and they're so awful you don't want to give them to someone? I'm looking at you, shitty Fergie glitters.

Has anybody tried the Nails, Inc. feather polishes? They look so pretty, but the testers at the Sephora I was at were all dried out so I couldn't see how well they go on.

My only A England's came from Llarowe. All of that collection is sold out right now, though.

I have a family friend with two daughters (8 & 12 yo), and they will take any polish I give them! That's where the truly crappy ones go. I make up for it by gifting them cool polishes from time to time, so they aren't just stuck with junk.

But I've kinda thought about doing a polish swap on here, for the times when you get a good brand that's a good color, just not on you. Or it's a great color, but you know you'll never wear it again. Or even the ones you think are completely awful that someone else may love (for themselves or their kid).

Yeah, I give my reject polishes to my 10 year old niece. She always thinks they are amazing, regardless of how much I hate them.

The OPI Bubble Bath lasted a week without a chip ... it is being replaced with Nails Inc. Baker Street.
