Orange - it reminds me of carrots, like in a bad way. I like carrots and I don't know why but I cannot wear orange nail polish. see post
What are the classiest and most sophisticated nail polish colors.
I think deep red, light pink, deep purple, lavender and black are very classy looking. Thanks for your input!

Show me your nails!
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Tips and tricks for painting small nails...
So I have really small nails, not just short, but small. I was wondering if anyone had any good tips and tricks for painting my nails at home. I recently got a manicure, but I'd like to also be able to save money and do it on my own. But I always have trouble since my nails are so tiny. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've included photos of my nails next to/overlapping a dime to show a size comparison. :-) Thanks so much!

Tips for avoiding bubbles in nail-polish?

Nail Care
My nails are weak and very clear when they grow out. I pick my nails while they are growing out, plus, I trim my cuticles on a bi-weekly basis with one of those cheap cuticle cutters from the drugstore. I'm noticing that my cuticles itch more than ever now when they are growing back, and my nails are in varying opaque shades when they grow. I have been using a nail strengthener and occasionally painting my nails as a method of NOT picking my nails. I've looked at the products offered on Sephora and just don't know what to get! I would appreciate some advice and product recommendations for caring for my nails.

2016 Resolution: Nail Polish Challenge!
Hello lovely ladies of Sephora!   So I've never been very serious about makeup, my hair, my nails, etc. until very recently. After graduating college with a degree in Animal Science, I'm now starting a job in the animal nutrition industry as a brand representative for a major pet food company. Clearly I need to look (and feel!) my best when I'm spending hours at a time talking to people about their fur babies.   One of the ways I'm doing this is to challenge myself to use up the nail polish I currently have (and really don't like, hence why all the bottles have remained full) before I let myself buy new bottles that I'll adore. I'll be documenting my challenge online to make myself really stick to it, and I welcome any color/design suggestions!   My current collection is quite small--of the 22 bottles I'm using only 16 colors plus top and base coat in my personal challenge--but I hope it inspires other ladies to use what we buy rather than let it sit on a shelf collecting dust.   xoxo K.D.

Searching for an Illumasqua Nail Polish
I am searching desparately for a high quality replacement polish for Illumasqua Nail Laquer in "Jo'mina." It was previously sold at Sephora, and Bloomingdales, but after not being sold in the U.S. (and not shipping to the U.S. for about 2 years), the color has been discontinued. There are no American retailers for the brand at this time. I haven't found anything color/formulation comparable since. I describe the shade best as an electric/neon lilac and I am willing to try both traditional and gel polish formulations. Thank you!

Nail Polish Recommendations
What's your favorite nail polish and why? Do you have a brand that you absolutely adore?    My favorites come down to ease of application because I'm not exactly patient nor do I have a particularly steady hand. So far, my favorite brands are Sparitual, 100% Pure, and Julep.

What is the perfect 1950's red nail polish?
I'm looking for a close match to a red nail polish that is from the 1950s. I really love Formula X, but also OPI might be a good option as well... I currently own the Formula X Pyrotechnic, which is a red shade that I think fits the 50s.. But I still want to look and see what other options would "fit the bill" for the 50s. I just didn't know if anyone had any other recommendations, although I do love Pyrotechnic, it would be nice to have another red option! Thank you!

Has anyone tried jamberry nail wraps?
I have been invited to a party for Jamberry nail wraps, which I haven't heard of until now.  My friend insists they apply and last way better than any nail wraps bought around here, and looking at the website, they are adorable!  They even have a style box to subscribe to!  I will probably go to the party and buy a few to try out before committing to a monthly subscription...   Has anyone tried these before?  Do tell!   PS the website ends in .net

Nail Art Portfolio: Let's Get on Point!
I don't know if this exists, but I've seen color challenges and looks of the day. I was thinking a challenge, but then again, some of us can't do the 3D sculpturing/3D Japanese art or gels. So weekly would be tough.  I guess what I want to see is what you guys have going on in the nail world and what art you've come up with. (Yes manicurist/cosmetologist assistance is ok.)    Rules:  Please if you are having someone do your nails, credit the salon and maybe the artist if they will disclose.  List each shade used.    Let's see some fun things.    November: Free for all (since there's only a few days left.)

Butter London nail polish?
What are your experiences with Butter London nail polishes? Are they good? Do they compare to Formula X, for better or for worse? I saw a couple new sets from them and really loved the colors.  What about the base&top coats from Butter London? I've used mostly Formula X and Revlon and would like to switch it up if they work well and last about a week or so. Thanks!

Nail color selection - the "narrow it down" game
Between having colors that are out of date and a desire to replace my 3-free favorites with 5-free varieties, I'm doing some nail color shopping. In each color family I'm looking at, there are clear winners, and then there are some that are so close to each other that I can't justify buying them both.    Any strong opinions on how to narrow down my collection among the following? Thoughts on color intensity and durability among Ciate, deborah lippman, and JINsoon?   Greys :   I need to pick one of the following: Ciate Pillow Talk deborah lippman She Wolf   Burgandies :   I need to pick one of the following Ciate Raising the Barre deborah lippman Miss Independent JINsoon Audacity   Purples :   I need to pick one of the following deborah lippman Dark Side of the Moon JINsoon Soubrette   I have figured out some nice nudes and glittery/fun ones, but I am stumped on how to narrow the above.
