Nailpolishes...I've got plenty

Get ready to scroll down a lot for my latest "I've got plenty" post - it's picture-heavy because I'm featuring ALL my nailpolishes! This was a fun post to put together as it features all of my "Nail of the day" pictures - so it will be great for me to refer back to. It also made me try out several polishes I'd bought but never worn (mostly blue, green and yellow shades - guess they're not as wearable for me!). There are currently 44 polishes featured - and I will keep updating this post whenever I buy a new polish (I think a Rose Gold shade is next - am debating between this one by Orly and this one by Essie)

OVERALL RECOMMENDATIONS:
I love Chanel for their unique and recognizable colors, while Revlon Colorstay and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro polishes have the best formulations (long-lasting, opaque, glossy and easy-to-apply & SUPER CHEAP!). I always use this base coat and this top coat (I highly recommend them - they're easy to find and make my polish last ages) - I own the raved about Seche Vite but am put off by its VERY toxic fumes!

 Which of the polishes below is your favorite? What nailpolish shades and brands do you love?

  1. Nice collection :) I like OPI and Catrice nail polishes, they have good formula and they are affordable.

    1. Thanks Lili - I can't believe how many nailpolishes I've accumulated over the past couple of years!

  5. Great idea :)
    Unfortunately if I were to do this...it would take me forever. Even with the swatches I have on the blog...but would be good to keep track somehow, im thinking maybe a swatch book

    1. That's a good idea! This was fun to do because I actually had quite a few untouched bottles of polish...but I didn't want to buy anything new until I had tried EVERYTHING that I owned LOL!

  6. Very fun post! I would say about 95% of my many nail polishes are OPI. I have mixed feelings about Essie as I find it goes on very thin so it needs an extra coat, but if you do that I like it! I probably need to open my mind to new brands - I would definitely try some you recommended.

    1. Yes - some of my Essie polishes feel very thin too. In terms of formula, I love Revlon & Rimmel because they are opaque in 1-2 coats. The formula is thick but not too thick. I have several OPI polishes on my wishlist including Strawberry Margherita and Lincoln Park.

  7. How fun, I was surprised how much I liked the mint colors! I'm going to have to add mint to my Ulta list.

    Just before Christmas I went through all of my polishes and tossed several of them that we're so old. It's been fun building my polish wardrobe since!

    1. I love buying mint colors - but I have to admit I prefer wearing nudes & pinks.

      Must be lovely to have a fresh start with your polishes...I have quite a few I don't love, and I have no idea how I've ended up with so many polishes LOL!

  10. I totally missed this post! I love all of them, but especially black pearl! Although I don't really care for how easily Chanel polish chips, I love their shades. Black pearl is one of my favorites, alongside graphite :)

    1. I love how unique Black Pearl is - I haven't really seen a comparable shade out there.

    1. Really? Can't wait to see what you pick out Lindy! I thought it was so funny that I was admiring your Plums the Word polish without realizing I owned the same shade! It looks so much better on you ;-)
