I received the Twenty-two nail polish set as a present. I went back to purchase it as a gift and cannot find it online. I was wondering if the item was taken off? Will it be sold again soon?

Just wanted to share, Today on the Zoya website you can get 3 polishes for $12 (the $12 is technically for shipping) Code is THREEDOM Good Deal, I would order some myself if I didn't already have so many polishes!

LOVE this polish! It's called SUGAR & SPICE ( and as usual the pic's don't do it justice)!  (sad eye's,lol!) SO pretty and has Rose Gold ( my red) & Blue, in a bright cream white crelly! What do y'all think?

OH ME OH MY!!!   I'm sooo excited about these new nail colors.  A beauty blogger posted photos and I fell in love.   I've never owned a NARS polish, they are expensive $21! But I can see myself picking up 5 from the website on July 15th.   Is NARS a good polish, does it wear well?   I'm still looking for pics with the names next the bottles, I want to have my list ready for the launch!  LOL   #addicted!

Hey everyone! Since the "What Are You Wearing Today?" thread is so popular, I thought I would make one for nails! I love painting my nails, and I want to see what amazing nail looks everyone comes up with!

I bought a pinky color today.  I watched a few reviews on YT.  I was really curious so I picked one up.   Anyone have any of these?  How do you like them?
Nails
Hey! I have a few nail polish in mind from Julep but I can't afford full price at the moment.   Is there some good promo codes available at the moment??   Also, I heard the promo code people get from referrals only works once?! If this is the case or someone has received a bunch of them and won't use them all, send me a message ?     I would love to save a bit so any promo codes / coupons would be awesome !!

Hi, My nails have been peeling for a while now and I don't know why. I haven't used nail polish for about two weeks so I could give my nails a break from the chemicals in the nail polish. I also got a ultra shield base coat and just wore that, but they are still peeling. What should I do and is there anything I can do without buying anything?   Thanks

Has anyone seen the new OPI Coca Cola for sale yet?  Has there been a delay in shipping?  I need that green duochrome!

What's your favorite nail colour?   Mine is more towards the nude colours... something that blends right in with my skin tone.   Even though I have long fingers (so I've been told by piano players) - I still like nude coloured paints...    I'm so embarrassed to step out of that colour region cause it draws so much attention, especially cause I'm a guy.

Lylysa and a couple others wanted to see a swatch of this polish.  I got a pedicure today and brought the polish with me to the salon.  It is very pretty.  All of the birthstone polishes look very similar, so I plan on collecting them all when I come off my no buy (if they are not sold out).

Since I'm waiting for my 2 stained nails to grow out before going back to French, I have a question. I'm wondering if it's just me.   Now that I do my own nails, I've discovered COLORS, so now I MUST match my nail polish to my blouse/dress, lipstick, blush.   I actually buy them in a bundle like that. I drag my outfit to the store, find match nail polish, lipstick, blush.   French was so much more simple. Didn't ever worry about having it match all of the above.

So awhile back, I think right after Formula X came out, I bought the set (nail cleaner, base coat, top coat) with a light pink for the color. I was superrrrr excited to try it as I had seen it on a cast member's nails recently and she said the system made her polish last for at least a week!     .....it was a disaster for me. I did all the steps, and within a day, most of the polish on every nail had PEELED off. So, I threw it in with all my other polish and kind of wrote it off. Since I didn't return it, I pulled it out more recently thinking maybe I just needed to try it again. This time, it was peeling within hours of application. So, I thought I would try to with a non-Formula X color. Same deal. What am I doing wrong? I want to love this system, because polish that lasts a week and that I don't have to go to the salon for (and, isn't terrible to remove), sounds amazing. I feel like I am the only one this isn't working for...so I have to be doing something wrong?

What is a good nail polish that won't chip?  I constantly wash my hands and a day after I paint them it's chipping off!!  That's even with a clear top coat on!  Help!!!

or can I?   I'm a nurse, we are not allow to have fake nails, but we are allowed to get the gel polish.  I was in a very physical male dominated field while I was in the military for over a decade...just a little background on my nail habits and didn't get my nails done regularly LOL   So I've never really been into my nails, regular polish chips horribly due to having to wash my hands during my day with patients (sometimes as many as 20-25 patients per day...trauma nurse) so I wore gel nails for a while but found I didn't like being chained to the salon every 10-14days AND if the gel chipped I was just stuck until my next appointment.  I also have an issue with finding time to paint my own nails (mom, wife, full time student) BLAH BLAH BLAH LOL.   I saw a polish at Rite Aid and it said quick dry so I picked it up and took some me time it came out pretty good.  Just don't know how much it's going to chip this week.   What do ladies do to get your regular polish to last?     Which polishes work best from the drugstore?   I have purchased Butter London in the past but it chipped in less than a whole day.  Not worth the price.   So I may have a new addiction...just what I needed.  LOL   My quick mani today

Anyone see this Consumer Reports study that tested 10 different polishes including a $2 one from Walgreens called Sinful Colors and the $27 one from Chanel?  Of course there were eight in between.  Any guesses on the results.  The $2 one came out on top while the Chanel finished in last place.  As a nail polish enthusiast, I wanted to pass along the news.  I am going to pick one up and give it a try.  That is so cheap that it is not breaking a no buy, right?

I used to get pro mani's/pedi's because I only wanted French because it matched everything I was wearing.   Then, I decided to go for colors to match clothes/lipsticks for fun, which meant I could do them myself.   The way I like to paint my nails is to apply glitter or speckles only on both ring fingers. These are the only two nails that have a permanent stain.   I tried the cotton ball soaked with 100% acetone wrapped in foil. Didn't help at all. My nails are too thin to buff, they've always been thin all my life. My nail tech never buffed my nails because he said they are too thin plus said I didn't need the buffing off layers to smooth the nails.   Has anyone ever had this happen where only a nail that you decorate gets a permanent stain?   It doesn't matter the base coat, layering with extra top coat before glitter/sparkle or even brand of polish, it still stained.   I'm putting the glitter OVER 4 coats...1 base coat, 2 layers of color, 1 top coat to seal, then the glitter.   Any tips/advice (besides stop doing the glitter/speckles art) to remove the stains?

Which ones better? Also what are some other great options for a fast drying and shiny top coat?   thanks in advance

Well, I got my nails done for my wedding on Sunday.  I didn't want to do anything too traditional since we're not exactly having a traditional wedding. Our cake is a Dalek and there will be a quadcopter for a ring bearer.  Our wedding colors are black and cream so I thought this was appropriate with my cream dress what do you think?  I have three days to change them.

I am having a really hard time getting my nails to look like picture below. Does anyone have any way(s) I could finally get my dream nails. There are mixture of me nibbling on them and breaking. Also seem like it takes forever to grow.

Hey there beauties! I recently ran out of my Sephora by OPI base coat and since they don't make them anymore I need a new base coat. I tried the Essie "first base" base coat which was shockingly awful (since I love Essie polishes in general)   Any recommendations?    Priorities: 1. Staying power  2. that it strengthens the nails  3. That it's reasonably quick drying

I finally got around to trying my VIB Rouge renewal gift, Sephora Formula X in X hearts Rouge. Two coats, no base or top coat. Voila!

Just did my nails (4:30 am, can't sleep, nothing else to do really) and used Zoya PixieDust for the first time in Lux, but do I put a topcoat over it, or just the drying drops?

Is it just me or does it not matter what kind of nail polish you buy, whether it costs $.99 or $20.00 it is never "just right"? Sometimes it is thick, sometimes it is thin....it is always just okay...
