My Favorite Nail Polish?

Day 2 of Ooh La La Polish's My Favorite Things challenge!!  This one is a toughy - a mani with your favorite nail polish - I don't think I have a favorite polish.  At this stage in my addiction (can you tell I've watched the new season of Intervention?), I'm all about the price, if it's more than a couple of bucks, I'm out!  I refuse to pay more than $5 for a bottle of polish.  Because of this, I decided to look at this challenge a little differently.  Lately, I've been all about the neons - and you nail addicts know that in order to get the color to show up, you have to use a white base coat.  So, my favorite nail polish today is Barielle's Going to the Chapel, which is on it's last legs because I've been using it so much!!

Apparently using different bright colors on your nails is referred to as a skittle mani!  I first saw this done by The Little Canvas, here but it's not on her blog, but there are a bunch of other great things on her blog, including some amazing freehand nail art, so check it out here!!

    1. Thank you!! I find leopard super easy to do, I would love to be able to do zebra, but I've done it once and it was an epic fail, so I'm reluctant to try it again!

  5. I hear ya about the high prices on polish. I do so love the expensive ones though, so I tend to use them as bribes for myself... if I go to my workout class all three days this week I can buy that RBL... If I finish my work project on time I can buy that Lippmann. Your neon leopard mani is adorable. I love leopard.

    1. Thanks!! I was at the store today and was holding onto a 7.99 polish and had to put it down, I just couldn't do it!! Maybe if someone (read the hubby) buys me some expensive stuff, I'll get a taste for it!!!
