When I shop for clothes majority of the time the first style, size and cut I pick up never fit. It takes a couple of attempts with clothes until I find the ideal fit which is why I am not a big fan of clothes shopping in store or online.
I guess this explains why I am obsessed with nail polish (and jewellery). I never leave the house without having my finger nails and toe nails painted. I know with nail polish and jewellery they will always look good, and are so easy to shop for. They are also inexpensive that I can buy new colours and designs a lot more often than I buy my clothes.
I want to share my current collection of nail polishes with you. It isn’t as big as I would like it to be but you can see by the photos below my favourite colours are the pinks and reds. My collection is growing each month and my two favourite brands include OPI and B Collection by Bloom.
I cannot live without my Nail Envy by OPI (pictured above) which I use as a base and top coat. The OPI nailbrush suits the shape of my nails and the quality of the polish itself is worth the price tag. However, I have found that the quality, last and the application of the B Collection by Bloom nail polish brand is of a superior quality. The colours are easier to apply, the colour is thick when applying the first coat and it lasts longer on the nails.
The B Collection polish becomes flexible with the nail when it hardens. I find if I accidentally bend my nail the polish doesn’t chip or weaken like the OPI does. With OPI I apply a base coat, two coats of OPI colour and one top coat (four coats in total) and I have a solid five days worth of wear compared to the B Collection where I also apply four coats including the base coat, two coats of the nail polish colour and the top coat. The wear is a lot better in the first five days and I can push it into seven days.
How many nail polishes in your collection? Which is your favourite brand and why?
