TAG: Confessions of a Nail Polish Addict

I first saw this tag on Brit Nails blog, I have done a couple of different nail related tags over the years but this one I hadn't done before.

1. What nail polish are you wearing on your nails (and toes) right now?
As I write this I have Barry M Blue Grape and Guava on my fingers and A England Crown of Thistles on my toes.

2. What is one nail product you can't live without?
Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File - I really don't like my nails having any uneven edges, this files and shapes the nails but it has such a fine grit that it means putting on tights isn't a problem. No clicking of tights or catching on hair which for me is so annoying.

3. What is your favourite nail brand (mainstream and indie)?
Mainstream - Barry M, I like the core range as well as all of the Gelly polishes.
Indie - A England, it's easy to forget they are an indie brand because the whole operation is professional. I adore all of the gorgeous holos.

4. What shape nail do you wear (short or long)?
I used to have squareoval nails, but they curled and only looked good at a short length on me. Now I have rounded nails which grow a lot longer and don't curl the way they did when they were squareoval.

5. What is your go-to colour?
Black or dark purple.


6. What is your favourite nail polish finish?
Cremé while I like holos too, cremé finish polishes are a staple. Simple but works.

7. What’s on your nail polish wishlist?
Mostly Barry M polishes!

8. When do you usually paint your nails (morning, afternoon or evening)?
Usually evening, if it is in the morning then usually it will be because I have chipped or wrecked a nail and I have to fix it before going out.

9. What’s your top nail tip you swear by?
Fast dry top coat.

10. What nail polish do you regret buying?
I don't think I regret buying any of them. Perhaps if I had more money and could buy polishes at the drop of a hat I may buy something I wasn't so sure about.

11. Neons or pastels? Brights or darks?
Pastels over neons, and I prefer dark colours over bright nail polishes. Dark and interesting polishes get more wear for me.

12. What is your holy grail white, black and nude polish?
White - Barry M - Matt White
Black - Nails Inc - New York Noir
Nude - Barry M - Lychee

13. What is one brand you want to try but haven’t yet?
There are so many! Dark Metal Lacquer, Nubar.


  1. Cool tag! Cremé is my favorite nail polish finish as well ;) Pastels look awful on me (I have yellow undertones), so I prefer darks and brights! x

  2. I know you go for darks, but I think that bright orange looks FABULOUS on you!
