I think this is my 3rd tag I’ve ever made on this blog….shame on me :)). I wanna thank Andrea – Colour Your Life for tagging me. I couldn’t pass this one, since it’s all about nail polish.
1. Which color family of nail polish do you own the most of ?
I think this one is easy for me, cuz I know I’m a sucker for blue hues. Yes, I was right, blue it’s the new black for me! :)))
2. Name your most favorite memory you associate with a specific polish?
When you have such an addiction to nail polish, you start wanting more & more, but not those regular drugstore nail polishes, no no no, you strive for high-end nail polishes, for indie nail polishes, you strive to have unique nail polishes in your collection. Well, my wish was to have a Chanel nail polish.
My favorite memory that I can’t forget was when I arrived in Romania, and my husband was waiting for me at the airport, with a beautiful gift: a bunch of roses and a Chanel nail polish!
Now my Chanel collection is still tinny, but I love them a lot. Both are a present from my husband!
3. What’s your best-kept secret for chip-free polish?
I know….It’s frustrating when you paint your nails and after a few hours the nail polish starts to chip. Not to mention when we cook, clean or changing diapers etc.
Well, I’m going to tell you my secret! First I apply the base coat ( I usualy use one from Essie – no chips ahead or Ciate ), I let it dry, then I choose the nail polish, I’m applying it on the nails ( and here comes the secret ) and the thing that worked for me was applying a little bit of polish at the nail tip ( the free edge of your nail ). After that, I apply the top coat, and that’s it!
4. Which brand do you own the most colors and why is that formula your favorite?
This one is a easy one for me! The brand I own the most colors is Essence Cosmetics! For me the formula is pretty good, most of them are one-coat nail polishes which is great; the single problem that I have is that some of them ( the first one’s that I got ) dried, but with some magic nail thinner they came back to life. I also love the quantity ( 8ml new , 5ml old ), I love the bottles and I also love that the cap is the same color as the nail polish. Ohhh…and 2 more things: love the names of the nail polishes and that they’re cheap (2$)
5. Name the polish you like the least in your collection and why you still hold onto it?
My least favorite is Megan Miller – Caribbean. The color is…I don’t know…a raging one, it’s sheer, I don’t like the brush but I like the bottle and that’s why I still hold onto it! I don’t know nothing about the other shades, but this one is…
- SSSally Hansen – White On
- Essence – 53 You Belong to Me
- Essence – 05 Toffee to Go
