I'm wearing the mint candy apple too. To my eyes its the perfect Tiffany blue. It's not really what I'd be buying these days becuase ei love dark but my hubby got it for me and that's cute. I don't think it looks anything like it does in the bottle. Sadly I feel that way about most Essie.
Mint green is very 'on-trend' right now, and I guess we're proving that! Cute that your hubby bought you polish!! I cannot imagine my DH ever doing that. I asked if he wanted to pick out my polish for a mani once and it was not a good look ;P

Hi! I discovered this thread a couple of days ago and all of your pretty manicures inspired me to go for a bolder color. I've been in a nude/neutral rut lol!

This color is Essie Flowerista. New favorite!
Nycspring, the flowerista looks lovely on you! :appl: I love this thread too!

I'm glad to see the minty green love on this thread because it's not very popular in my area. Here's the light seafoam green I wore a lot this summer. It's from a spring release from couple years back but I really got into it this summer. China Glaze Keep Calm Paint On.

I've been admiring the manicures in this thread for a while but could never contribute. I gave myself a half decent mani yesterday and love the color. Essie "hi maintenance" with "set in stones" as an accent. Probably could have used a third coat... I used the Essie gel set top coat and I really like the shine. Pardon the dirty rings.
Puppmom, this color looks great on you! It has a pretty shine too!

I bought anja from zoya and was very disappointed. The bottle made it look like a deep burgundy but on it took a decidedly brown tone.

I'll try and get a good picture of it with the bottle. It's a pretty color but if it didn't looks so cool in the bottle I'd be happier. Its a one coater too.

Your tagline is so appropriate, Kenny!

I still love this thread and how simple and fun it has been! Thanks for sharing your lovely polishes, ladies! I am looking forward to all the new fall colors.

Oh, I don't find a 29-page thread about nail polish annoying at all.
To the contrary I find it fascinating, particularly since I don't use it and it is not used by my gender of interest ... well not the men I'd be interested in. :naughty:
This thread really has me intrigued because I have nearly-zero experience of what is clearly very very important thing to many.

You have no idea how geeky I am about a couple of my hobbies.
On other fora I can go on for pages and pages on other fora talking about pianos, guitars, macrophotography gear.

Vive la différence. :appl:

Thanks for the clarification! Nail polish is very, very, very important business! So glad you're intriqued, as this is very, very interesting and top priority stuff! So please, don't let us keep you. ;))

Baby monster, this is a really pretty mint green! Perfect color for summer so I can see why you wore it a lot. :appl:

I haven't bought any new polish for fall yet. :doh:

I bought some eurso euro too. My sister got some gold fleck she didn't like and gave to me. I don't mind it. I think she thought it would be an all over color or something, but I didn't want it to be anyways. Lol. I think it's called gaining mole-mentum

I have lots of colors and lots of different brands.
I like Butter, OPI, Nicole, Essie, etc. Sally Hansen and Revlon both last a long time for me.

Nail Polish is a very big deal to many of us.

I was at the State Fair yesterday, among hundreds and hundreds of people.
I decided to look at hands to see if most women had polished fingernails.
WOW! Almost everyone did! So surprising! And a huge variety of colors.
Blues, greens, and purples were common, among young and old alike.
Very Interesting.

Thanks Niel and Rockinruby.
I cut and color my own hair so I don't feel guilty about the money spent on nails.
And personally, I don't like blue or teal on my hands, but I absolutely love it on my feet. Eurso Euro is one of those colors you have to put on; it really changes out of the bottle.

Stracci, yes, yes it is. I sometimes start thinking about what color to take a week in advance.

I spent so much time cool at blues when I wenti was so glad to find this one I nearly missed it. I was looking at all the Essie blues an they were a huge disappointment. Zoya only had one at my store and not was iridescent, not a fan. It was called Tart

Is anyone picking up OPI today's special set from HSN? Pretty good combo of colors and treatments for $40. Even includes my fav OPI red of all time - An Affair in Red Square.

I was off to buy it but I'm really not a red person, and I just bought the euro blue one so I didn't need a similar blue... So I passed. I was going to get the zoya Lidia too, which is very similar to that purple!

So has anyone picked up any new polish from 2015 fall collections? I looked at Essie, Zoya, OPI and China Glaze but the colors seem to be what I have already. I only bought China Glaze Wood You Wanna, a bronzy brown metallic, which looked interesting and different.
I have a few - the reds from OPI's Venice collection (I'm addicted to reds, though...), and the dark purple with pink shimmer (I forget the name) from ChG. I haven't seen the Zoya's in real life yet, but they don't excite me in pics I've seen. I'm waiting for ILNP's fall colors to become available -
So did you pick up any ILNP's colors? I liked a couple holos but again very similar to what I already have. Still thinking about that purple holo but KBS also released a very similar color. Decisions decisions.

I did get a few - through the pre-order a few weeks ago, and I finally got a shipping confirmation for them! I started with one ILNP, liked it, ordered a few more, loved them, ordered a few more. Very nice quality -

Oh baby, that's a good looking color! How did I miss that?
And +1 on An Affair in Red Square. It's one of the few bottles I actually used up.
