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.

Nail art Strips?
Wonder where I can get those strips, maybe a couple mm thick, to make a good line for doing nail art.... I've gotten some from sallys beauty supplies but the polish just bled underneath them and it looked terrible. Ive seen ones used on IG that look amazing but wondering where do I get these?

OPI vs. Essie??
Hey girls, Just wondering what your favorite nail polish company is? I absolutely adore the Essie packaging and I think the colors are so cute! The polish goes on very well for me, but I've read some reviews of how some think it is streaky. OPI has the reputation of being one of the best. But, when I used their polish the other day, the paint chipped two days later! What are some of your favorites?? xx

Nail polish for my tween
My daughter and I spent some time at Sephora today (have to train them young) and she was all over the polishes.  She paints her own nails and is trying to learn designs and such.     She was gaga over the Marc Jacob colors, but at almost 20 a pop I can't see buying a bunch of those.   I don't wear polish on my nails due to my career.   Any advice on what to invest in for her?   She was looking at the ciate' advent calendar, but the reviews on that aren't great and it's 60 bucks.

Nail polish recommendations?
So I haven't been into painting my nails for awhile. One of my besties sent me some jamberries, and I went over to a friend's house so we could do our nails together.    I decided only to put a couple of the jamberries on because it was a busy design and I thought it'd be too much to have that on all of my fingers. I was just going to leave it at that because I hate it when I paint my nails and it chips right off the bat so I wasn't going to waste my tme. My friend talked me into painting my nails using this awesome top coat that she has (that Sephora doesn't carry). And it lasted a lot longer than I expected!!    So I bought some of the top coat and repainted them last week and it's lasted over a week even with the cheap polish I used.    SO now I need more!! I've been perusing Sephora.com in search of the perfect red nail polish. Most of the reds are too bright. I'm looking for a darker red.    Any suggestions? I'm eyeing a few different shades from Formula X but I love BT and wanted to see what you ladies recommend.  Thanks so much!!

So $675 for the Christian Louboutin nail polish??? Insane. What do you think?
What do you think of this? I own three pairs of Louboutins and I love them. However, I don't think CL $675 nail polish is worth it! Seems insane to me! what do you think? will you pay for this?

My nails always split after I file them. How can I fix this?
I use a Sephora-brand glass nail file, but this still hasn't fixed the problem I have - my nails always split after I file them! I file them, and then within a day, they're splitting at the tips. Any tips? Thanks!!

CONUNDRUM - WHY SO HARD TO GET NAILPOLISH OFF SKIN WHEN IT CHIPS SO FAST ON MY NAILS?1?
To be fair, I am not skilled at applying nail polish, so it goes all over my toes. This is almost impossible to get off cleanly even when I dip a Q-tip in remover. However by the time I've worn the polish on my nails for an hour, loads has come off with ridiculous ease!   Does anyone else have this issue, or are you all nail polish experts?

Gel/Gelish polishes.... PEELING
I invested in a led lamp for setting gel nails and then bought a french manicure gel set (not the same brand as the lamp) the set contained light pink gel color, white gel color for tips, a file, and a cuticle pusher....However on the package it says to use a gel cleanser to wipe off a tacky layer after setting??? But this was not included in there so that was annoying! but i decided i would use extra time under the led lamp and then just wipe them with a cloth instead of going back out and trying to find a gel cleanser. Well that worked ok, they were set enough that using a cloth didn't disturb my color but it was still kind of "tacky" like they said....Well literally 24 hours later my nails start to pucker/lift around the edges and end up peeling off!!!!! I was hesitant about trying gel in the first place and now i feel like i wasted my money. SOOOO if anyone can explain to me the gel cleanser if that is a necessity or any other thoughts on why they are peeling off so soon that would be awesome.

Gel/Gelish polishes, PEELING
I decided to finally invest in a LED lamp for setting gel polishes....I found a lamp and then i also found a gel polish kit for french manicures ( not the same brand as the lamp- i figured that wouldn't matter don't all gel polishes set with LED or UV ) the kit i found contained a pink polish, a white polish for tips, a file, and a cuticle pusher....So i followed directions and scuffed up my nails a bit prior and went ahead and applied my polish and set it...it said there would be a "tacky" layer after setting which i was unaware of and it said to use a gel cleanser to wipe off that tacky layer, BUT they didn't have that included in the kit, very annoying!! So i decided i would use more time under the lamp and then try to wipe off this "tacky layer" with a cloth....well the time was sufficient enough so that wiping with a cloth didn't disrupt my color but it was still a bit tacky afterwards, well compared to how regular polish feels but not like things were sticking to the polish so it  was fine....but literally 24 hours later there was puckering/lifting around the edges of my nails and from normal use of my hands they started peeling in large chunks so i ended up peeling each one off and they came off completely intact like taking off a fake press on nail....can anyone explain to me the gel cleanser and whether or not that is a necessity in the process and any other thoughts on why my gel is peeling so soon....I was hesitant to try a gel system in the first place and now i feel like i have wasted my money!

Cuticle Questions: Will it grow back? (scars)
I had a minor event three weeks ago when I was bitten by a dog. I'm mostly healed now and treating my scars with vitamin e and some nice creams. Now that the swelling and scabs are all subsided, I can tell the amount of trauma that my thumb cuticle suffered and I'm getting a little twist in my stomach every time I look at it.   I have half my nail with a healthy cuticle and the other half is a small bb of scar tissue where I can see my nail bed. Is it possible for my cuticle to regrow or is there no chance since it is scarred?

Gel nail polish w/o UV light that work well?
I just recently saw the commercial for the Sally Hansen Miracle gel polish, and reviews are mixed.  Does anyone use a gel polish w/o a light that they like?  I dont necessarily expect it to last 14 days, heck...my gel mani from the salon that costs me $35 doesnt even last truly that long.  I would however expect a week w/o chips under normal nail duress.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

Julep "Laree" dupe?
I want this colour from Julep (May 2014) so badly, but it always shows up as out of stock. It is described as a "g olden pink taffeta shimmer ". I have tried Nars's nail polish in Orgasm, but it was too peachy/orange vs pink.    Does anyone know of a dupe, or suggest colours to be layered for a similar effect?
