On my toes I have OPI Lincoln Park after Dark.

I have nothing on my fingers right now. Planning on painting them today. I did a manicure and soaked them in some oil last night. I have basecoat on and am trying to decide what color(s) to go for.

I have so many holiday looks to pick from. Normally this would excite me, but this time I can't make a decision.

I am going nail polish shopping tomorrow to pick up more of the new releases that I don't have yet.

So, what are you wearing, or plan to wear?

Mine are the same as they've been for the past few months. Every 3 or so weeks I get my nails done at the salon and I get them French polished. Easy, classic, and being acrylic, they don't chip.

I also have OPI Lincoln Park After Dark on my toes with a no name glitter over top. My fingers are sporting OPI My Very First Knockwurst. It's my new favourite neutral polish.

I haven't done it yet (can't until I'm cleared from continuity), but I just bought two Avon crackle nail polishes... one a sparkly green, the other, silver... and I plan on doing things like OPI's I'm Not A Waitress" red under the green, and dark blue or purple under the silver, etc. etc.

The neutral I have on my fingers right now is OPI's Coney Island Cotton Candy.

Should be fun.

I am currently rocking Essence Nude It, pale color that gives me 'mannequin hands'. Needed a pale color after all of the vamp colors I have been wearing lately. Planning some nail art for an event this weekend, so I'm enjoying the pallet cleanser

I bought the China Glaze holiday set at Sallys, so right now I have on Merry Berry with Glitter all the Way on my ring finger. It's a nice way to start the holiday season without having to wear red or green polish.

My nails have been bare for weeks, but I just last night put on No7 Blackcurrant - which as it sounds is a deep purple. Vampier than my usual, but I really like it.

Not peajays, but my experience was that it took 3 coats to get it how I like it to look.

I am heading there tomorrow to see what they have. I can't believe I am so late on getting some of these sets.

Right now I have Julep's Harper on my toes (a pretty 'mermaid-y' blue/green glitter) and Julep Ivy on my nails (a shimmery gorgeous purple-blue). On my middle finger I put a gold glitter topcoat, just for fun.

Not very holiday-ish!

IcedPea, I get great coverage with only 2 coats. It's quite opaque right off the bat! I had been searching for that kind of colour with the creamy opaque look to it!

I just had OPI's Big Apple Red applied when I went for my gel manicure yesterday. It's a nice bright, seasonal red. Love it!

I used to have acrylic nails and never wore colour so I'm having fun putting it on my shorter, natural nails.

I just bought the Sephora by OPI Tinsel Town holiday pack. Currently wearing Mash-UP, a very pretty gray with a purplish tint. Before that wore Mr. Right Now (a geautiful deep pink-red) with Merry Me over the top (pink-red with glitter).

Now if I could just get ANY nail polish to last longer than a day!

I do use a top coat, but obviously it's not doing much. Can you "nailies" give me some ideas? Do I get Seche Vite at a beauty supply store?

Also I really prefer small bottles of polish since they seem to work best when fresh and I like to have many options without breaking the bank. Are there good brands that come in the minis?

Not really a "nailie", but i had the same problem with chipping polish. I started using a sticky basecoat and it has really really helped. (The one I use is Orly Bonder, but there are others that are supposed to be good.) So, when i do my nails i put on one coat of a nail fortifier, then a coat of the Orly Bonder, then a coat of colored polish, another coat of the Bonder, another coat of polish and the top coat. If I'm using a glittery polish, I'll use a coat of Gelous - which is actually a base coat but it's thick and smooths out gritty glitter - before the top coat. You can get Seche Vite at Sally Beauty, Ulta and Target. Right now I've been using a fast-dry topcoat from Sally by Nina Ulta Pro which is a little cheaper than the Seche Vite and I LOVE IT. Same gorgeous glass finish, but a wider brush, it's not getting thick and stringy now that the bottle is about half empty and I'm not getting the shrinkage that I was getting with the SV (once my polish was dry, it looked like I hadn't applied it all the way to the tips of my nails). It's also a little cheaper.

Thanks Stacey! I was hoping you would do a holiday thread!

I am wearing Midnight in Moscow by OPI. Love it. It's a dark brown with a bit of gold. Not really a holiday color, but also have OPI Rosy Mistletosies the holiday collection from a few years ago. Can't wait to read what others are wearing!

I also recommend the holiday Orly collection Miss Conduct. Very pretty!

Ignore the ring, it's a silly pic I tookat Target and sent to my dd as a joke.
I don't know the color, it is a shellac polish in a light grey with 2 types of silver glitter over the top. So pretty! I've gotten a bunch of compliments since I had them done like this last week.

I just came back from getting my nails done. I had two colors picked out, but I don't remember which one we went with. I think i finally decided on
Midnight in Moscow. It's much darker than what I normally wear, but I love it!

I've been wearing lots of dark purples. Even though its silly, I've also been doing a glitter accent nail and I just love how it looks

I have a game this weekend though, so I'll be switching to my team color. I use dark orange with a glitter accent nail of course!

ooh, love the OPI extravangance, might have to go get that one! i'd been wearing so many deep purples and reds, now i'm into a micro-glittery gold by covergirl outlast. it's a lightly cooler gold, not like amber. first polish i bought from them, and i really like it! it seems to be weathering slightly better than my opi and china glaze polishes. and i found a coupon in the pg saver or similar in the paper this weekend for buy one get one free.

I'm wearing Essie Chinchilly on my nails today. For some reason I've decided to change my nail color every day this month. Only a few days into the month and I've been able to keep up with it.

I've got so much nail polish I figure I've got to use each color at least once before I think about getting rid of it.

I am in love with the OPI Skyfall collection but waited to long to get it from my local Ulta. They didn't have any of the individual bottles left by the time I got there. I did find them online but I might look around a little more so I can actually see the color before I get it.

You can fit all your nail polish in a medicine cabinet? This concept is foreign to me.

E-M-E "Boogie Down".

I love this color and my nail girl is almost out. She promises that she'll get another bottle, but I've tried to find it online, and google gives me nothing (but references to dancing ).

If anyone has a connection to get me a bottle or two, I'd love you forever!
