TAG | My Nail Polish Obsession

So I know I just posted my last post literally 10 minutes ago, but I am on a roll today I tell you! And yes as you guessed by the title it's another nail polish related post. I have nail polish fever today and I have been itching to write this post since I woke up this morning! 

This post is the nail polish tag, I've seen this going around Youtube and watched loads of them last night. This was not necessarily a good thing for me as now the list I have on what polishes I need to get this year has laterally doubled. But then a girl can never have too many nail polishes, right? Now this tag has been made for video form, but seeing as I haven't ventured out into the world of videos yet, I thought that this tag would be equally good in blog form and I tag all of you to do it!

Question 1: What is your favourite nail polish company? 

My favourite would have to be O.P.I. I am very new to the world of O.P.I but my little small pots that I was sent this Christmas have gotten me hooked. The quality is amazing, it can be a tad on the expensive side for nail polish. But I personally feel that O.P.I makes your nails look and feel expensive and is worth every penny. I  do have another favourite though which is a lot more affordable and accessible which is Models Own polish. Models Own have a great range in colours and apply really well.

Question 2: Glitter or no glitter?

Generally I prefer no glitter. Glitter is something I have to be in the mood for. I think that it looks great around Christmas season and great for a night out or special occasion. However sometimes I do love to wear a bright glitter polish in the summer as the sun will reflect it and it will look beautiful on your nails. 

Models Own Pink Fizz is my favourite sparkle for the summer

Question 3: O.P.I, China Glaze or Essie?

Defiantly O.P.I but that’s only because I've never tried China Glaze and I've only owned one Essie polish which I lost :(

Question 4: When do you change your nail polish?

I used to be terrible for leaving my polish on and letting it stay on all chipped and scruffy. I am so happy that I have broken out of this habit and I would say I re-do my nails about two to three times a week.

Question 5: What's your favourite colour on your nails?

I have two and one is a recent favourite which is O.P.I's Designer De Better as I love the silver with the added warm pinkie tones to it. It will go perfectly with anything you wear and its a very noticeable shade which I was commented on loads. However the polish which has been a long time favourite has to be Models Own in Golden Peach, it’s a gorgeous peach shade with golden glitter undertones, looks fabulous with a tan.

Question 6: Dark or Bright?

I wear dark polish in the winter and bright polish in the summer. I don't really like wearing bright shades when the weather is not nice so I really try to fir my polish in with the change of seasons.

Question 7: What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?

Well, a lot of you will already know this as it was posted up earlier today. It’s Revlon's Facet's of Fuchsia 

Question 8: Matte nails - In or out?

I am in between when it comes to matte nails. In general I do love the look of a very glossy polish and will always use a top coat to give it that extra shine. But I will get an urge every now and again to use a matte polish and I do love experimenting with my matte top coat.

Question 9: French Manicure?

I do love a French Manicure. I think it looks so clean on your nails and is very elegant. However I rarely have a French on my nails just because I am so obsessed with polish and colours. If I go on holiday I will always go and get a French manicure done just because my nails can then look after themselves while I'm away. 

Question 10: Favourite Winter colour?

This has to be Designer De Better from O.P.I. The colour goes with everything festive for that time of year it’s a nice change from the classic red.

So these are the 10 questions. I hope you enjoyed reading this and I would love to see you do this tag as I am truly nail polish obsessed! If you do decide to do it please leave a comment below so I can check your blog out.
