I am not big on nails, you hardly see me mention nails like ever. My nails are almost always painted, especially now when I need pretty hands for jewellery and the like, but I am the opposite of an addict.
I also don’t paint my polishes very nicely, because I’m human, I can’t sit still, and I type a lot, and peel my lips a lot, etc.
All my polishes are cheap, random brands. I’m much too cheap to spend on name brands like OPI, etc. My couple of OPI shades were minis and like $2 each. I find that many random brand polishes can be very nice.
I own nudes/near nudes in a few different shades (lilac, champagne, pale pink, grey, etc) that I use the most. These are shades that look ‘neutral’ enough to let me wear the hell out of them, have huge chips in them and still look vaguely passable. I love my nude shades, they let me be the lazy fuck I am.
I have a few shades in non-nude colours, like Tiffany Blue, red, and other generally more muted and tasteful colours.
Finally, a cream polish that gets along decently with me! This is, I suppose, one of those Pseudo #TiffanyBlue shades. It appears almost neon in certain lightings. It was a HKD $15 polish from #bonjourhk (~$2.50sgd) which proves that you don't need to pay lots of $$ to get a decent polish. #bbloggers #budgetbeauty
Rarely has $2 nail polish looked so good! This is a mini from #SASA house brand, #sasatinnie. I believe it's SME301, if you want to look for it in the black hole that is the nail polish bins of doom in SASA. It's a surprisingly complex #blurple/gunmetal/defies explanation. Also, I don't know how all the beauty bloggers apply nail polish so nicely. this is reality, yo. #budgetbeauty #manicure #bbloggers
I used to love glitter nail polish, but it is a bitch to remove, and I’ve grown up. Some of the more tasteful, smaller glitter or shimmer-and-glitter polishes I still use, but I’ve stopped using those with huge glitter bits. I’ve just discovered how to do a sandwich mani of sorts, which allows me to play with my glitter polishes a little bit.
That’s all the nail pics I’ve took for now. I actually quite like this, I’ll probably take more nail pics in the future until I exhaust my nail polish collection (which is like 10 bottles and maybe 6 minis, a comparatively small stash.) I also don’t buy new nail polish.
