- How many polishes do you own?
About 250 I think… I’m afraid to count :))
- Are those your real nails?
Yes. I’ve never had gel or acrylic nails.
- What type of file do you use?
I use a “no name” glass file most of the time.
- Which top/base coat do you use?
Lately I’ve been using Orly Nail Defense and a peel off base by Dance Legend, and before that I had OPI Natural Nails Base Coat and OPI Ridge Filler. As for the top coat, I often skip this last step, but I have EVA Glass Shine and ORLY Matte Top and Glosser.
- What kind of nail polish remover do you use?
Currently it’s Sally Hansen Moisturizing Remover (big green bottle), and I really like it.
- How do you clean up your manicures?
Sometimes I use a corrector pen and sometimes a thin brush + nail polish remover. I dip the brush in the remover and then use it to smooth out the cuticle line. I do my best to paint my nails carefully, so normally no polish gets on the cuticles or skin, but if it happens, I use the brush/corrector :)
- How often do you paint your nails?
About 3-4 times a week. Usually it depends on the color and on its quality, because I cannot stand chipped or cracked nail polish. There are weeks when I paint my nails every day, but usually that means I’ve hauled some great colors and I can’t wait to try them all :) Also, occasionally I go a day or two with nothing to give my nails some rest.
- Have you ever tried gel nail polish?
I’ve heard of it and I saw it in action. Looks good, but it’s not my thing. I change my nails way too often to commit to one shade for two weeks. A new colour or nail art on my nails is a quick fix to make me feel a lot better :)
- I want to buy … OPI nail polish from … collection. I saw it on your blog.
Ok, this is not a question, but a request I get sometimes via email or commenting. Let me make it clear: I do not sell nail polish. This is my personal blog, not an online shop. The OPI nail polish lists you see here are for informational purpose only. If you want to buy old/rare OPI polishes I suggest looking for them on those major market places like Ebay or Amazon.
