I love sassy colors I tried their regular of Misty Lilac, ang daling i-apply kesa sa caronia and to think that hindi sya pricey for only Php19.00 in 10ml. Check out my picture here http://www.fitandfashionmom.com/2012/02/notd-sassy-colors-misty-lilac-perfect.html

current fave nail polish: O.P.I. pink flamingo, my private jet,  and boggato blackberry. i usually top boggato blackberry with O.P.I. crown me already, it soooo prettyyyy!!

Have anyone here tried the OROGOLD manicure set?

i have this, and it work wonders! make my nails look (and feel) healthy after removing a polish. usually kase kapag nagremove ako ng polish, may parang stain and uneven [textspeak!] nails ko. even if 3 days lang ang nail polish ko. but when i use this after, shiny talaga and mukang sobrang clean -- http://i40.tinypic.com/2dv3l0p.jpg  ;D

^^Dati, I used to wear black and red nail polish pero now that I work in a fashion UNconscious corporate environment, mas gusto ko na less attention grabbing. Hehe. Kaya stick to neutrals and pales nalang. Mas comfortable lang ako, that's all. Kaya Essie lang usually nail polish ko because they have an amazing selection for pales until I realized maganda pala yung light grays...

I saw sa internet there's an Elf gray nail polish pero it never got here. The last time I asked the Elf SA pinapaubos nalang daw mga NP nila kasi discontinued na.

I saw sa Bayo meron din ng mga NP na taupe pero hesitant ako sa color, it's more brown than I would like.

^ I disagree to that. Like all items, I think depende rin sa brand and sa pagkaka-apply ang quality. I've used a cracking nail polish na cheap lang pero ang tagal bago matanggal. And also, depende rin naman sa color combinations and shades mo kung maganda ba siya or pangit sa paningin mo :D

^^ sis Stella_r May nakita rin akong black. Onti na nga lang ang watson branches na may Caress :(

^ sis devilish_einjel Sa isetann recto ko nabili yun e kasi napadaan lang kami ng friend ko and ang mura, less than 30 pesos if I remember it correctly. OMG yung brand name. For me, ang ganda ng appeal ng turquoise or aquamarine, hot pink then black na cracking polish. Gusto ko nga bumalik dun kasi titingin ako ng silver color naman tapos black yung nail polish sa ilalim hehe.

Sis, nagta-top coat ka ba? One thing I always do after waiting the top coat to dry is binabasa ko ng cold water, better if babad for 2 minutes.

^glad to help :) nabasa ko nga na even better kapag may yelo pa yung water kaso over na para sa akin hahaha. pag nagmamadali ako, once na sure akong tuyo na yung last coat, itatapat ko lang sa running water na malamig tapos medyo haplos yung nails. feeling ko kasi pag hindi ko ginawa yun, parang hindi nasesettle yung nail polish components (walang scientific basis to ha, feeling ko lang haha)

Re: Matte nail polish

Merong matte nail polish ang Orly brand, and I think matte top coat din Orly, but wala na when I checked the Watson's at SM Makati where I get my Orly stuff.

Re: Crackle nail polist

I've tried the one from the Face Shop. Okay naman. You just really need to put a clear top coat over it to really make the colors more noticeable and for it to last longer.

And to answer the question pala: my favorite brand is Orly! Though I also like the nail polish from the Face Shop and sometimes Skinfood, too. Want to try China Glaze or Essie some time. Haha.

I have Caress Diamond Gay pero super dark sakin compared to the swatches online... I think I will have to buy another bottle. Baka something went wrong with my first bottle. The swatches I see online yun pa naman ang gustong gusto ko.

^ang alam ko talaga sa Caress na yan that it's slightly darkish yung pagka-gray nya pero medyo mas lighter naman sya than San San's Cloudy Gray. Ang hirap mag rely sa mga pics sis lalo galing sa net, masyadong magaganda na ang mga camera ngayon there are times na mas lighter and brighter ang outcome ng colors  ;D. Just recently bought L.A. Colors NP in Jungle Fever, sa net dark teal sya pag lagay ko sa nails ko more on green na sya pero when I go out in the sun dun lang lumalabas yung slight na pagka-teal nya, kainis... hahaha



Regarding buying polishes, personally I would prefer buying affordable/local nail polishes kase I'm into stamping and nail art so lagi ako nag papalit ng nail polish. Sometimes sa isang week 2-3 times ako mag change ng nail polish so hindi practical for me to buy expensive ones kase baka manghinayang ako tanggalin...  ;D
Favorite NPs ko Bobbie, Chic, Nature Republic, Klik, OMG, Jacorste, La Belle, WnW, San San, Bichun etc. Price range ng polishes ko P10 - P100 lang  :), maybe someday I might try the expensive ones like China Glaze, Orly and Zoya kase dami ko nakikita na magagandang shades ^_^

By the way if you have trouble with chipping use a base coat/nail hardener before your regular nail polish then top coat afterwards tapos top coat ulit after a few days if you really want your polish to stay. Base coat is also good to prevent staining on your nails ^_^
