Hi Everyone! :)
I was tagged by gingerlovesmakeup. This tag was the 7 Deadly Sins of Make-up, but because this is a nail blog, I changed it slightly so that it’s all about nail polish! I hope you like it! :)
Greed: What is your most expensive nail polish?
My single most expensive nail polish is OPI Don’t touch my tutu and I bought it with OPI Pirouette My Whistle, so together they cost 29Euro – eek! Look how pretty they are though! :)
Wrath: What nail polish do you have a strong love/hate relationship with?
Believe it or not, I have a love/hate relationship with holographic nail polish. I absolutely love, LOVE, holographic nail polish, but I spend most of my time indoors and many holographics only really come alive outside. So I end up not wearing them very often. Here’s a great example of a holographic polish that works indoors as well as out: Jade Vermelho Surreal. These pics were taken inside under an ordinary bedroom light and look how pretty! :)
Gluttony: What brand takes up most of your collection?
I had to go count them all to answer this question, and I had to recount, twice, because I can’t believe I have 70 Essence nail polishes.
Here’s one of my favourite Essence nail polishes: The Boy Next Door. (The silver accent nail is Rimmel Shooting Star, my all time favourite texture polish).
Sloth: What nail polish do you ignore the most, due to laziness?
I rarely use ridge filler because I don’t want to wait for an extra layer of nail polish to try and I mostly wear just one polish because it’s too difficult to match/accent and layer them!
Here’s an example of a lazy mani: Misa Bikini with a Martini.
and here’s a mani that I put alot of effort into. This was copied from a design I saw on WAH nails. I used Deborah Lippman Amazing Grace (white), IsaDora Bella Vita (purple) and W7 Gold Dazzle (gold glitter on thumb).
Pride: Which nail polish gives you the most confidence?
Anything bright or sparkly! For example, this IsaDora Sugar Crush, which is both! :)
Lust: What nail polish is at the top of your wish list?
Lacquistry Amazeballs. Full stop.
Envy: Which nail polish looks great on others but not on you?
Pastel purple!! I loove pastel purple, but it always looks too cold and grey on me and so bright and springy on other people. I keep buying them, hoping I’ll find one that suits me, but no luck so far. Here’s a pic of Essence Hello Marshmallow! It’s such a pretty pastel purple, on other people! :)
That’s all 7 sins! I hope you liked this post and looking at some of my older manis! Let me know what you think in the comments! :D
Thanks for looking!
