Weekly Poll: Nailed It

Happy Wednesday everybody! Hope your week is going well so far, and that if you've been having cold rain showers (like we did yesterday here) they haven't been ruining too many of your spring flowers.


Today's question is for anyone who has ever worn nail polish and is fairly simple:

What's on your nails right now? Or if they're bare, what do you wish was on them?

My nails are not bare thanks to a heavily chipped application of ELF "Raspberry Sorbet" polish, but I'm thinking I ought to repaint them later tonight. Maybe with the color I just got in my Birchbox.

How about you? What are your nail realities and/or fantasies?

  1. My nails are bare. I hardly ever paint my nails for a couple reasons...I'm not good at it, I always smudge them, and the paint chips off SO FAST! I did see some new Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish on IG so I am going to look for this the next time I'm at the drugstore. If this product actually works, I would def give wearing nail polish another try.

  2. My nails are bare right now, which is crazy for me haha. I'm gearing up for my first ever gel polish application (gelliebeans Malibu Spring Collection) later but realized I need a gel base/top coat LOL.

  3. I have China Glaze "Thataway" on my fingernails, which is a shimmery pinky orange. I went to Ulta for a Detroit Tigers orange colored polish a couple of days ago (amazingly enough, I didn't have one in my stash), found this one, and kind of just had to have it. I bought the L'Oreal L'Orange polish for the Tigers orange (for my toes). I was going to only buy something that was 40% (drugstore brands), but that's what Ulta does to me.

  4. I go through phases where I don't wear it as much. Quick-dry polish seems like a good idea. I rarely do elaborate stuff with my nails because waiting for polish + topcoat to dry is usually as much as I have patience for!

  5. Bare? Gasp! Good luck with your first gelling. :)

  6. Ulta is a troublemaker. L'Orange looks really nice though, so at least there's that. I haven't painted my toenails in ages... I guess this would be a good time of year to start doing it.

  7. I've been biting my nails again (a life-long problem) but keeping them polished helps curb the urge to gnaw on them. I have on OPI "You Callin' Me a Lyre?" (musical pun, had to buy it), a very sheer, light creamy pink that doesn't draw attention to my hands while my nails grow out. The formula is gel-like and doesn't chip easily so it's not easy or fun to peel off.
    That sleet we got last nite was unusual, huh?

  8. I have on-and-off issues with nail biting too. Right now it's "off", thankfully. Love that polish name! And yeah, sleet. What the effing F. It seems sort of sunny and nice today, but now I'm suspicious...

  9. I'm picking off my Monday Manicure out of frustration. Obnoxious database errors. Either I pick at my mani or I scream and throw a tantrum. This seems the less violent approach. I am filled with zen...

  10. Seems reasonable. And probably less disruptive than actually screaming. Happy Wednesday!

  11. True. I have a feeling one co-worker isn't talking to me right now because I snapped at her. But, I'm hand-jamming these one at a time because of her, so I don't care. Out of F's to give. It's been a marvelous week. Happy Wednesday!

  12. My nails are bare and I don't wish for anything to be on them! I rarely wear nail polish I can't stand the feeling of it.

  13. I have a minty green Rimmel varnish on atm (mind you it' a little chipped around the edges)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Interesting! Textured nail polish (like glitter) sometimes bothers me, but I've never really been able to notice the regular stuff once it's on.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Minty green sounds nice! Mine is more than a little chipped so I certainly won't judge.

    Mine have OPI's Toucan Do It If You Try and a diagonal tip on my ring finger for an accent with Taupe-Less Beach.

  17. I have Essie Exotic Liras it's the only shade I've wore like all month! It's not talked about but in my opinion it's a nicer version of 'watermelon' :) it's pinker x

  18. Toucan Do It If You Try is such a fun color! Nice choices. :)

  19. I have on Fizz by BH Cosmetics.It's a light neon orange. I'm really impressed with their nail polishes!

  20. I've never tried their polishes - thanks for the tip!

  21. I have a cobalt blue called "Baker Street" from Nails Inc. I got it in my Glossybox last month. Generally, I don't like dark green or blue shades on my nails, but I have a weakness for cobalt blue at the moment so I love it. I guess it is kind of trendy right now huh?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cobalt is definitely trendy at the moment, but I think it's a really pretty so it's well-justified!

  23. My nails are currently rocking the Disney - Evil Queen Impress manicure set
