Nails Q&A
I was wondering if anyone knows any vegan nail polish brands? Both essie and OPI have told me that their polishes are "cruelty-free", but not if they're vegan.
Nails Q&A
Is Sephora no longer carrying Butter London? Is there any explanation as to why that is?
Nails Q&A
When my nails are long, they tend to bend at the corners of the tips and from that bend it either breaks off or I have to clip it off. Is there a way to prevent this? Thanks girls!
Nails Q&A
So I have been on a nail kick like crazy, before I wouldn't even bother to do my nails because it seemed as soon as I would paint them, they would start to chip. I have been using a rather terrible routine with my nails recently, which was the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Strengthener as a base coat, two coats of whatever polish, and then the Julep Polymer Top Coat which I just ran out of. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on the best base/top coats on the market? Thanks!
Nails Q&A
Do you know of a brand that carries a truly mirror-looking nail polish? I've seen someone with a manicure like it but want to know if any brands sell a polish
Nails Q&A
*sigh*   Feel free to laugh at me all you want.  I'm 30 in a few months (**bleep**, that number looks scary) and I can't figure out HOW to open the Butter London nail polish bottles!  It says Lift up to open on the side...and I try to, but I can't OPEN IT!   somebody help? *puppy eyes*
Nails Q&A
I don't paint my nails often enough to justify high-end base and topcoats. What are your favorite drugstore varieties?
Nails Q&A
I have never had a problem growing my nails.They come in strong and they grow long. I do however have a problem with painting them. I do them myself and put a clear coat of polish on everyday, but the day after I do them, the color has started to chip. I also try to get them professionally done every now and again. As soon as I get home from having them done I put a clear coat of polish on, again though, by the morning the color has started to chip. I've tried different salons, different brands of polish and different types of clear coats. Nothing works. I've even tried the new schllac nails and after a week or so the color peels off without any soaking. I love to have my nails looking nice but I don't want to ruin my real nails with acrylics. Some one please help!
Nails Q&A
I have a huge collectiion of regular Sephora by OPI nail polish but like the shellac polish. Can I use the UV lamp on a regular polish to make it last a bit longer? I usually have a girls night on the weekend with my daughter so we do our nails almost once a week but would like to make it for a week at least without them regular polish chipping after 2 days.
Nails Q&A
So I need a new top coat and I'm looking at the Formula X top coat. I can't find the ingredients online, so I'm asking you!  3 Free: No Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde.
Nails Q&A
For normal (not gel) nail Polish is it better to use one brand for top coat base coat and polish? Also do top coat/base coat combos really work? Thank  
Nails Q&A
I found only one review for this product on Sephora's website, and it wasn't good. Therefore, I was looking for additional feedback. I wanted to know how this product has worked out (e.g. is it long lasting). Also, is it really that different from regular matte nail polishes?

Nails Q&A
Hey guys, I got an Orly nail polish from TJ Maxx and it doesn't say what the name of the color is on the label. Instead it says FBI20818 and Orly #818. It's a pale pink polish. I tried to attach a picture but it won't let me for some reason.   Edit: I finally figured out how to post a picture!     
Nails Q&A
What brand has a better brush and doesn't chip so quickly??

Nails Q&A
I'm not just a beauty addict -- I'm a nail polish fiend!  I change my nail polish 2-3 times a week because I get easily bored and sometimes what looks good one day totally clashes with another outfit another day.   Currently wearing "Absolutely Alice" from OPI's Alice in Wonderland collection.   What are YOU wearing on your nails today?   [Edit:  Since this question was posed, I've gone from Essie's "Masquerade Belle" to Color Club's "Mrs. Robinson" to Deborah Lippman's "Wicked Game" to Deborah Lippman's "Bad Romance."  ]
Nails Q&A
Recently I accidentally discovered that I love jelly finish polishes. However, short of trying every polish in the world, I don't know how to pin down which ones are jelly and which aren't. So Far I have Deborah Lippman "Glitter in the AIr" and RBL Bikini Bottom. Anyone else love JEllies? Which ones are your favorites? Which brands do you prefer?

Nails Q&A
Hi, I've bought a dress from whistles (Vienna tropical floral dress) for my 40th birthday party. It's navy and a kind of acid yellowy green with slight flashes of electric blue. Ii am wearing it with electric blue shoes. Can anyone advice a good nail colour to go with it? I don't suit blues and I can't decide whether to go for something subtle like a nude, or a nude with maybe some sparkle at the tips, or whether to just embrace the whole colour thing and go for a coral or orange? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Nails Q&A
Do you guys think that Chanel nail polish is worth the money? I would love to have Blue Satin and Rouge Fatal, but $25 dollars seems like a lot for a nail polish. Especially for a teenager who makes minimum wage. Is the quality different from that of OPI or Essie at all?  I would love to have it, but I want to make sure that's it's worth the splurge before I spend my money on it. 
Nails Q&A
Does anybody know if Sephora plans to carry relatively natural/non toxic nail polish? It's pretty much the only beauty product that I need that I can't buy at Sephora, and I'd like to see some.

Nails Q&A
Thinking about buying a summer nail polish, any nice colors? 
Nails Q&A
I have the OPI gel nail kit but am running out of the pads you spray cleaner on after you manicure is finished.  What can I use in place of them?
Nails Q&A
Has anyone used Butter's British Racing Green nail polish - or another of their darker shades?  I read that it leaves a light stain and wanted to ask if anyone has had an experience with it ... thanks!
Nails Q&A
Ok, I think this is weird, I know it's never happened to me or any of my friends before, but my nail polish is coming of in a layer.  It is not chipping at all. It's just that one day I'll look down and the whole nail's polish will be gone.  and it's always one of the pointer finger's.  It doesn't make a difference if I use a base coat or not. I have been using Konad polish b/c I've been stamping my nails with Konad stamps, which do seem to work better with their polish. Any experiences?
Nails Q&A
I was wondering if anyone could suggest to me an almost black red nail polish that contains some glitter. There was this color that I loved from Forever 21 that has been discontinued (it was called Wine), and they no longer sell anything like it. It was an extremely dark red with purplish undertones and glitter.   Thank you to anyone who has any suggestions!

Hi, I'm wondering if Sephora will have the Diorific nail polish by Dior in Canada stores soon? I'm really looking forward to getting them.  Thanks. Kelly. 
Nails Q&A
Hi, I really want Ciate Mini Mani Month Set!! I found that it is out of stock when I started looking for it, so could you tell me where to buy, or when will it be restocked?
Nails Q&A
Do you know of any really pretty jelly finish nail polishes? Please be specific with the names
Nails Q&A
Hi everyone!   I am on a quest for a great white nail polish. I want to use it as both a base coat under sheer polishes or just as a base for nail art. I'm open to pretty much any brand (doesn't need to be carried at Sephora)   I'm looking for a polish that is...   1. Completely opaque with only 1 or 2 light coats 2. Streak free 3. Not goopy/ overly thick-- the white polish I tried was extremely thick and would not apply evenly. Definitely not a good look! 4. No DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde   The only white polish I've tried is OPI for Sephora-- White Hot (streaky, goopy, requires many coats)     Thank you so much for your help!! <3
