Nail Polish Collection

Post by Mar2013 »

I didn't see a topic on this, so I figured I'd make one.

What does everyone like for brands of polish? How many polishes do you own? How do you store your polishes?

as for me, I like Essie, OPI, Butter London and China Glaze. If I had to pick just a brand to use it would be a hard one but I think Essie would be my favorite one. I own around 120+ I work in a hair salon, and do manicures sometimes, so I bring in a bunch of my colors to use. I actually built a nail polish rack out of foam board..it's falling apart right now...haha but I also keep them in a storage bin :)

Zoya is definitely my favorite brand overall, their quality is very consistent and I love everything I've gotten from them. My favorite is Aurora, really pretty purple with holographic glitter. I also like Essie and OPI, although I've gotten a few polishes from them that sucked. I just store my nail polishes in a shoebox, nothing fancy :)

I have about 70 right now, several brands. To be honest my favourite is probably Barry M. OPI and Revlon are also good for me. What is it everyone likes about Essie? I have a few of their colours but i find the consistency and texture so frustrating! But the colours are gorgeous.

I also store them on these polish stands i got off amazon.

I have... alot of polishes, and I'll just leave it at that. My favorite brand is Essie.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

I have a lot. Nail polish is my thing and everyone that knows me in person knows that. Last time I counted (not too long ago, and haven't bought much since) I had a little over 400. I keep them in built in drawers under my bed. I can't find much else to house my collection. I tried the racks but I would need a lot of them.

I don't do nails professionally or anything but my friends ask me to do their nails all the time. I usually do nails for my family and friends.

My favorite brand is OPI. About half of collection is from them. I like OPI for my basic colors, Essie for pastels and CG for neons. The rest are chanel,illamasqua, Revlon and Ciate. I have a few other random brands too.

I'm guessing I have a little over 100 and it's constantly growing. I just keep them in those like three-drawer rolly bins everyone and their mother has, they're not organized at all lol. I don't really have a favorite brand because nothing has really disappointed me or has seemed to hold up longer than another, most of mine though are Avon (my mom sells it, so), Revlon, Sinful Colors, and Sally Hansen.

I do not recommend Zoya. It does last long but stains the nails. I recommend Essie which I'm sure lasts as long and does not stain the nails. However you should always base your nail color look with clear polish!!!!!!

I've been collecting nail polish on and off for about 8 years. I've given away somewhere around 90-100 bottles to family, friends and people on facebook and I still have a little over 500. I keep mine put away in a 12 drawer melmer. That way they aren't exposed on a regular basis to light and other elements that can effect the quality and color.
China Glaze is the brand I have the most of, mainly because it's the first brand I ever bought and because they sold it at Sallys. I like A England, BB Couture, Illamasqua, RBL, CND and Nails Inc a lot.

I love nail polish too. I own around 40 I think. My favorite brands are zoya, essie, opi, and butter London. If I could only choose one to use forever it would be butter London. I wish they were cheaper though

I agree! I wish butter london was cheaper! You can actually find them on amazon for 11 dollars sometimes and they have free shipping :) I usually get a couple from there sometimes.

Zoya has a really great formula, but the polishes in my experience don't work well with other brand base/top coats, especially one that are NOT big 4 free. This includes ones that has formaldehyde resin. My Seche Vite works horribly with Zoya unfortunately, but I'll try Zoya base and top coats for a change :(
