mbm - my shipping was crazy this time. it gave me an ETA of 1/14 after sitting in OH for DAYS and the 14th came and went and it finally moved to charlotte nc (i'm about 3 hours east of there) and they updated the eta to 1/16. maybe they did something weird in shipping this time?

I got my Zoya order today! I'm already head over heels in love with Blu- it reminds me of that baby blue Hard Candy from back in the 90s!

I painted my nails for the first time in forever last night with a new one I picked up while Ulta had their 20% coupon going - Butter London Sprog. It's pretty and spring-y but a bit more purple than I was expecting. I'm always chasing a very specific shade of dusty light-ish cornflower blue and I was hoping this might be it... nope. I still really like it, though.

Barry M's gelly polish in Blueberry looks like exactly the shade of blue I'm looking for... I got excited because ASOS has it, but they apparently don't ship nail polish to the US? Barry M's website will... for $28. BOO. The search continues.

YES. But noooo, they are out of Blueberry. I did sign up to be notified when it comes back in stock, though.

My nails are so rough. Ragged and chipped Pearl Drop. I can't seem to find a color that I'm the mood for. Everything is either too viciously cheerful or depressing.

I think I might just do a super sheer white or nude if I can get my nails shaped and cleaned up enough.

Oh, I did NOT need to know about that site! Ever since the whole shipping from Europe to US thing changed, I've allowed myself to believe that A England was inaccessible to me. (Yes, I know I could get it from Llarowe, but I've banned myself from that site.) A England is my favorite, and a total weakness!

i've been using llarowe for my a england needs (and discovered picture polish that way), but i had no idea there was a US connection for barry m polish! this is excellent information. i've been wanting racing green forever, and i've been interested in a few of the gelly polishes too (blackberry (ha ha DUH), watermelon, maybe pomegranate). look out, wallet.

meanwhile, here's my newest a england, purchased from llarowe. dancing with nureyev, from the ballerina collection:

Speaking of Llarowe, did anyone catch the drama with them and Pretty Serious? Both posted about it and said they didn't want to talk about it, but that's it and now Llarowe isn't carrying PS polishes, which was their decision. It appears to have something to do with people bashing one of PS's polishes.

I ordered some polishes from Ninja Polish today but over half of what I wanted was out of stock.

Can I sound kind of dumb and ask if you guys use base layers and clear top coats? I bought some elf polish and it's super thin and chipped after a day so I think I'm doing something wrong.

I've always just directly applied two coats of my desired color to the nail without a thought but I don't know if that's the proper way to use polish.

I use both, if you don't use a base you might stain your nails and the top coat helps with chipping.

IN OTHER NEWS LOOK AT THIS shiitake

Yep. Always use base and top. Base coat will prevent staining and help polish last longer.

I'm usually too lazy. But if you wipe off your nails with plain vinegar before polishing, it will usually last a little longer too.

I did Riva with a pink holographic glitter gel polish. The glitter gels were from a special Tokyo collection and fetch ludicrous sums on eBay, but they really kind of suck. Absolutely gorgeous, but never dry very well. I ended up with Molly dents on three nails. As always. Boo. It's pretty and icy/wintry though.

I did pink on toes because my dad always asks me why I don't wear "normal" colors like pink. He really just does that to try to get a rise out of me.

I definitely use a base and a top coat. I can't imagine polish lasting 40 seconds without top coat especially.

I just put on Zoya Malia. It's very Pantone Radiant Orchid.

MBM - I got a red Helmer last weekend! It's beauteous.

Thanks for the input! I thought stained nails were just part of the price of painting your nails. Off to search for some new stuff to buy!

Mbm, love your drawers of polish!

Stained nails are mostly a product of unstable pigments, but you can help with a base coat. Dark colors like reds and blues are the worst culprits.
