My 10 Favourite Polishes

My 10 Favourite Polishes

I missed this over the weekend! The British Nail Bloggers are doing a collaborative event – we’re all posting about our favourite polishes. Like many other bloggers, my favourite polishes change regularly but as of right now, these are the polishes I can’t get enough of:


I suppose Seche Vite should be the top of this list. When I think of the countless hours I spent waiting for polish to dry before I discovered this, I wonder how I ever managed anything. This is glossy and doesn’t smudge nail art and means I can paint my nails when I’m drinking my tea in the morning and be ready to shower without so much as a smudge within 20 minutes. Since I discovered it at the end of September I’ve already got through a full bottle.

Nails Inc Pembridge Crescent – I haven’t posted anything with this colour yet but when I just want to create something simple I seem to keep gravitating towards it – I’ve got two designs waiting to post at the moment. In fact, you’ll see it tomorrow!

Claire’s Accessories Silver HoloSolar Eclipse. Nuff said.


Models Own Absinthe – it was so difficult to pick a favourite from all five of the Velvet Goth collection. I couldn’t help but buy ALL of them. I haven’t made nearly enough use of any of them yet but Absinthe has just got the lead for now. This morning’s Manicure Monday features this polish.

Models Own Strawberry Tart – again, it was very difficult to pick from the Fruit Pastel collection. I rarely use just one of these colours, most often I’m using two or more of them together. They create gorgeous gradients. The search function tells me I’ve got 7 posts featuring this colour. Considering I’ve only been posting three months, that’s quite good going.


Tara’s Talons Ice-Lolly – a very recent addition, but as I’ve mentioned before, already my go-to red. Indies for the win!

No 7 In The Stars – I spent ages looking for a pearly, glittery top coat. I got this one half price with a voucher and I’m already halfway down the bottle. It’s great for galaxies and accents!


George Cloudless Sky – I’ve loved this ever since I bought it in the summer – it’s a gorgeous, uplifiting blue. I also like mixing it with white to play about with other shades of blue.

Sinful Colors Snow Me White – this gets a special mention, even though it’s in my bad books a bit at the moment for going all gloopy and nigh on impossible to apply. I’d never bought white polish before this one, but I think I used it on almost every design during the 31 Day Challenge. I can’t really complain about the gloopiness now – it cost me £1.99 I’m two thirds of the way through it!

Collection 2000 Sherbet Lemons – this falls into the “old faithful” category. I bought it for 99p in a charity shop and whilst it doesn’t look all that fantastic on its own, it’s spectacular for nail art. See here, here and here.
