I thought I’d make a thread here for nail polish! Does anyone paint their nails regularly or do nail art? And if so do you guys have a favorite brand?
I pick at my nails so I’m trying to keep them painted so they can grow. But I’ll also pick the polish off too so I have to do nail art so I’ll be like, “that’s too pretty (and was too time consuming) to ruin!” haha.
I just tried Ella and Mila and like their polish! I think it’s 7 free? So it doesn’t have some of the more harmful ingredients. But the nice nail polishes always seem to be so expensive which sucks. I’ve also been trying nail stickers and designs using painters tape. I’d love to do nail stamping but my nails are so tiny.

I.... may have a bit of a problem with nail stuff, eheh. I do nail art regularly, paint my nails regularly, use traditional polish as well as dip and gel stuff, and I own way too many bottles of polish.
This is a shot of my swatch fans right now, but I have about 30 bottles that need swatched but I'm waiting for more blank fans to come in the mail....
As for brands, I'm really fond of China Glaze! I adored their Sesame Street collection.
I love watching nail art videos. They are so relaxing! Unfortunately I am a nail biter (ik it's a terrible habit), so I don't really paint my nails. If I had the money I would probably get them done. I never touched them when they were freshly manicured.
I don't do nails or nail art. I am also a nail biter and I work with very young and small children including infants so I don't have nails or wear rings that are large either as I've accidentally scratched full-grown children in the past! I do like to have my toenails painted though! I don't use any particular brand, but I tend to use the same few colors. lol I would love to them professionally done though!
I very rarely paint my nails but when I do I make sure I use vegan nail polish so it isn't tested on animals, which I usually buy online. I do love watching nail art videos though and can't wait to see what you do.
I love nail polish, I have a huge collection of my 2 favorite brands: Zoya and Julep. Julep used to have a monthly subscription box that I really enjoyed, but they discontinued it and have kind of gone downhill since then. Zoya though is current and they have a sale today of any 4 colors free when you pay promotional shipping of $15, so that's a pretty good deal! Zoya has the most gorgeous holo colors that I've ever seen! They also have a shade called Olivera that I have 2 or 3 bottles of, it's a color flip where it changes from blue to green to purple depending on the light.
Both Zoya & Julep have color names that are girls names - so I collected my daughters' names in nail polish. I have Aurora, Aubrey, and Austine from Zoya (and suggested they name one Austen so I can have the proper spelling for my daughter, haha), and I have Aubrey and Austen from Julep.
Zoya's Aurora is my #1 favorite color in my entire collection, it's a purpley/pink holo and it's beautiful!

I LOVE NAIL POLISH. when i am home next week i will take a photo of the nail polish shelf i built! i love indie brands & holo & watching simply nailogical. my friend got me the holo taco holoday collection for christmas and i am SO ZAZZED. otherwise my favourite brands are fun laquer & cirque. i'm not sure if you have it in the us, but barry m is my favourite drugstore brand.
i bit my nails really badly until about five years ago? & then once i started keeping them painted all the time it was much easier to stop biting them. i keep them polished all the time & keep my cuticles oiled.
oh ALSO my favourite website to buy polish from is hypnotic polish! i rly recommend even just browsing there, they have so many pretty polishes.
Mik I love the swatch fans! I looked up the sesame street nail polish collection and I think it’s super cute
Hopefully you will be able to get your Austen polish trisha!
I’d love to see how the nail polish shelf looks lilibet! I went to look at maybe getting the holo collection for christmas too but it was sold out when I checked D: Ꮭilibet 🔮 out of curiosity what does oiling your cuticles do? I’ve seen cuticle oil in stores but never ended up trying it.
