I bought my first two polishes in months (not counting a few in beauty boxes) this week, I got and am wearing Hot Tropics from the ORLY summer collection (clearly not my photo):

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zY7hbKv3PVs/U ... pics+1.JPG

Edited because the picture is huge.

It's held up really well, I have no actual chips after four days, just tip wear.

And then I went to Meijer on Saturday while Brian was running a 5K and the Color Club endcap caught my eye. This collection was pretty wiped out, but I did snag Daydream Believer. I love how pretty much all of these look over black.

Okay, I slapped Daydream Believer on top and this is what it looks like, sans topcoat because i'm probably just going to repaint my nails tomorrow.

I'm so glad I held off buying the two Zoya pinks I had in my cart last week. Now I can get them both plus a bonus color!

6 days now with no chips! I'm trying out Deborah Lippman's fast dry top coat and used Butter London base coat. Not sure which is doing the job but I'm a happy camper. The polish in between is a-England briar rose, holy grail and St George all dry brushed for a painterly look.

That looks awesome! I think that those type of polishes just have really great wear time. I recently had a mani of BL's Sunbaker with zoya anchor and armor last a week without chips.

Currently rocking Charla. I want to wear it over Ibiza!

I had on the NCLA polish that came in the last Petit Vour box - I agree with MMC, it's not great. It's very pigmented, but it's also thick in that way where you HAVE to load the brush up because if you try a thin coat, it doesn't go on smooth. I'll reserve it for my toes where I care less. And then I put the Fergie stars polish on top for America, and because I forget that using that stuff means I have to peel the polish off because it's too thick to wipe off and I can't sit with polish remover soaking on my fingers.

took advantage of the Zoya deal. How could I not? Getting two more greens (surprise) and a sparkly pink shade I wouldn't otherwise wear but it's called Erika so I pretty much have to get it.

I'm finally getting some of their polish remover, too. Usually I use the cheapy drug store brand, except last time I bought the pump bottle instead of the simple bottle and apparently they felt they had to add gelatin to make it work in a pump bottle. ARGH. Naturally I didn't notice the discrepancy in ingredients until I'd used 2/3 of the pump bottle. Sorry animals :(

Most readily available polish brands have gelatin. It is in there as a nail strengthened, I think, and nothing to do with the pump.

I go for 100% pure acetone. No gelatin and works better. It's worse for your nails, and worse to breathe in, but you use less and for less time, so it actually balances out. I read a scientific paper on acetone exposure among various polish removers once, and that was the conclusion based on tests of skin absorption. I should have saved that paper (it was written by a biochemist MUA member who was avoiding doing real work and was awesome, solid science).

The Zoya remover is nice though! I'm too cheap to keep buying it so I refill their nice bottle. (I know, I'm cheap about the oddest things and not at all cheap about the dumbest things)

I have metallic teal on my toes--Chanel Azure. It was the last polish I bought, last spring.

Inspired by lavawitch I'm wearing Wet n' Wild Teal of Fortune on my toes. Fergie Going Platinum on fingers. Lots of glitter for someone who usually doesn't do glitter.

That is such a cute color.

Has anybody tried the new Costco polish? They have two packs of mini bottles that are vegan and cruelty free. Some of the colors looked fun.

The colors in store looked different. It doesn't say anything here about cruelty free, but there was a feature article about them in one of the mailers they send out to members.

http://www.costco.com/Jenna-Hipp-12-pc- ... 55850.html

Wow--I just got that you said first time ever. How did,you do such a great job?

Oooh, I never thought to look at Costco. I'm going to check it out next time I'm there, since I currently own one color of nail polish and I think I like having painted nails now.

I don't know? Maybe I just have steady hands from years of cake decorating. They're not perfect, but I guess that will come with practice. I had to redo one nail after accidentally smudging it (oops).

Ah, that makes sense. I was just thrown off because I've bought that exact type and brand of remover in the regular bottle with the screw-top and I swear it doesn't have gelatin. There are 3 varieties and I always pick that one because the other two have animal products, I've checked the labels on at least two different occasions. But for some reason the pump version has gelatin and I didn't think to check the ingredients on what seemed like the same product in a different dispenser. At least I know now! Not that it matters, cause I'm getting my fancy Zoya remover soon. Ooh la la!

Yeah, you did an annoyingly good job!

I've been wearing straight black, no top coat for almost a week because I didn't have time to add top coat and wait for that to dry, and I hated the color I put on my toes. So i was like, "Well i'll just take it off in a few days when my fingers chip." So of course this shiitake has barely budged.

That's like some polish rule: longevity is inversely proportional to how much you like the manicure.

Well I wanted the plain black, I just hate my toes so I figured i'd want to sit down and re-do both in a few days anyway. But I forgot how lazy I am and since the black held up okay, I haven't felt pressed about it.

I made the mistake of putting a light lime green on my toes, forgetting that for whatever reason, I hate light colors on my toes.
