Nail Polish Junkie


This post is for all my Nail Polish Fanatics!   
Thanks to the power of You Tube I became addicted to nail polish. Watching countless hours of nail polish collection videos I became intrigued with all the colors from bright bolds, subtle pastels to deep dark rich colors. I love them all!
Nail polish is the perfect accessory by adding that additional pop to any outfit. But the best incentive for collecting nail polish is the price. You’re able to get that shopping high for less than two dollars.  C’mon who wouldn’t want to make a trip to CVS, Walgreens, Target or you store of choice for the newest nail color.
I was so strung out at one time, that I had a subscription to a nail magazine. This enabled me to be informed of all the latest nail polish collections. I also track down a local nail salon wholesaler who sold to non license individuals. I was able to get the latest collections such as OPI and China Glaze at discount price. But my main goal was to purchase my nail polish rack.


My nail polish art pens…I love the Sally Hansen nail art pens!
Has anyone tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects yet? They last up to 10 days! I haven’t tried mine yet…

Konad nail art stamping kit…A nail kit that allows you to stamp a pre-designed image on your nails in minutes!
Check out You Tube for some great nail tutorials using Konad.

Below is a list of my all time favorite colors
-Sinful Colors 24/7
China Glaze In the Lime Light (Neon)
Maybelline Express Finish Minty
Avon Sunshine
Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Commander in Chic
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark

So if you’re a nail polish junkie leave me a comment and let me know your favorite color!

  1. Katie, I'm NOT a nail polish junkie... I only have about a good 3 or 4 bottles of polish and they are probably all DRIED-up!!!! I'm VERY impressed with your collection & I'm guessing I could save $money$ if I did invest in a collection of my own. :))

  4. Chello my kindred spirit/nail polish lover! Nail polish makes my heart sing and my soul soar. I love it, love it, love it. It's so hard for me to pick a favorite though. I'm drawn to really bright or deep/dark moody cream colors but I also love the neutral and nude shades and some glitter every now and then. I have Commander in Chic and Lincoln Park after Dark. I'm looking forward to checking out the Deborah Lippman fall collection. Yeah for nail polish!!!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and please do tell me about that nail magazine when you get a chance :)

  5. Love your collection - I'm thinking I should display mine like you did instead of just throwing them in a drawer. I'm into funky designs and you have me considering houndstooth nail designs - love it!!

  14. I used to never wear polish. I always went to the nail salon and got an american manicure but recently I've fallen in love with all the different color options out there. Right now, I'm really loving the sinful colors collections. One, because they are super cheap and it is the only brand that will stay put on my paper thin nails if I put a good top coat on!
