Ski Teal We Drop ; Done Out in Deco; What's With the Cattitude; Jade Is The New Black

Chinchilly; Angora Cardi; Tart Deco; Midnight Cami

I can blame one of my closest friends for getting me unhealthily obsessed with nail polish. I mean, they've always ended up in my shopping cart every single Target run, but she took it to a whole other level -- like, the "it" colors and stuff. Chanel Jade was only the touch of my nail polish awareness due to the surrounding blogger hype. Either way, I'm full Vietnamese thus am too familiar with Little Saigon, so finding little nail shops that sell OPI / Essie / China Glaze for dirt cheap come easy - especially with the native tongue. That same really close friend also had hinted me in on this. Seriously, she's really dangerous when it comes to fueling my spending habits.

Up above are my favorites. What's on your nails right now?

  21. i love the essie nail polishes, but the opi ones are looking really good too! the light blue one you've got there is probably my favourite - i've been looking for a colour like that for a while, actually!

    as for my favourite nail polish, i am really diggin american apparels l'esprit. it goes on surprisingly well and the colour is really fun.

  22. Teal is supa nice. I'm also loving taupe. I use Sephora by OPI in Metro Chic currently & love it!

  23. Tart Deco is such a fabulous color!!!

  24. OPI is my favorite! I currently have Russian Navy in matte on my nails then later this week I think I'll do Purple Pompei.

  25. i am wearing Vixen by Revlon, i love dark reds. I was amazed to find my fav nail polish shade that happens to be my username!
    I absolutely love the first one on your post - Ski Teal We Drop. It will be perfect for the fall/winter!

  30. Oh I love Chinchilly!! I am so into grey for fall!!

  31. I currently have Essie's "big spender" love the color!!

  32. Essie's Fifth Avenue—a bold, bright, orangey red! So chic, so fierce!

  33. Leonie – for any color you want to see on the nail, try “swatches” in your keywords for google ;) usually you’ll find a review. Nonetheless, it’s gorgeous on! Considering a silver now too..

    ilean24355 – OPI lasts a while! The application I find is a little sticky. I prefer Essie.

    Rachel Core – Painting nails is such a hassle for me. I wait until it’s barely on my nails. Kudos to switching it up every day. My friend does it like twice a week and it boggles me.

    chopstick panorama – little Saigon is a place in Orange County where all the Vietnamese businesses are. Best pho places!

    Anon 8:33 – that color is gorgeous!

    Dani – American Apparel nail polish really does have spot on colors, huh? Should try out a bottle! Preferably orange.

    Eva – Loving that shade of taupe. Need to try that one too

    Iluvyi – Never thought to try periwinkle! Should go through a crayon box for inspiration next time I look for nail polish

    Blondie – Gold! I want an obnoxiously glittery gold.

  34. I;m actually currently wearing Jade is the New Black which I LOVE!

    xoxo, Ashley

  35. Only one of my nails is painted because all of the other nail polish on my fingers chipped off! I'm in desperate need of new nail polish color!!


  36. I'm into anything purple. Done Out in Deco is great, I also love Parlez Vous OPI. And I just picked up William Tell Me About OPI which is fantastic and perfect for fall. Another great one is Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic, a purplish grey.

    I think Tart Deco is next on my list. I had it in my hand yesterday and now I'm sorry I didn't just get it.

  37. LOL! Some chipped tomato red on the toes, nothing on the hands. Pathetic.

    Love the jade green.

  38. okay that opi what's with the cattitude, I seriously need it!

  39. gah your friend sounds like my friend... haha


  40. Dammit, my dad said he would teach me Viet but I have yet to learn! I'm a big fan of Essie shades but honestly, they're a bit pricey. Gotta ask my Viet-born aunt to tag along whenever I decide to go to Little Saigon...

    I've definitely jumped on the nail polish bandwagon too. This is def fueled by the cheap suppliers near my house that sell Essie and OPI for wholesale price. <3 Essie!
