The days where I would be tempted to buy a full range of a limited edition OPI nail polish collection are long gone. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love the brand. I simply own a lot of nail polish (in fact, it is in a desperate need of a declutter) which means not that many shades of nail polish excite me anymore. So when I first spotted the spring 2017 nail polish collection I wasn’t too hyped for it. Until I saw ‘I Can Never Hut Up’ in real life and knew that this would be a great addition to the collection.

If there is one brand that I love for nail polishes it is Catrice. There are a few others of course, but when it comes to affordable brands that are readily available to me, then Catrice would be my pick. It is hands down the brand I have the most polishes from and that is why I also have quite a few favorites. I picked 10 of my all time favorite Catrice polishes. This is them.
Favorite Catrice nail polishes
Scented nail polish? Yup it’s back, at least if it is up to Catrice that is. A few years ago scented polishes were a thing, but they seemed to have gone out of style as quickly as they came onto the scene. I still have a Revlon polish that smells like spices and the only reason why I’ve kept that is because I love the color of it. I haven’t been buying much nail polish lately, hence lack of nail polish reviews, but this intrigued me enough to try it. How do I feel about the new Catrice Soft Blossom polishes?

It’s no secret that OPI is my favorite nail polish brand. However, this past year I’ve been falling in love with Essie. Ever since the brand became more widely available here, I have been trying more colors. I was a tad unlucky at first: with sheerer more jelly like polishes that weren’t my cup of tea. I also wasn’t a fan of the lasting power. But that has all changed. So today I thought I’d tell you all about why I love Essie.

Ah nails! When it comes to beauty, nail polish was my first love and lately that love has been back in full swing. There is just something about fall that makes me want to paint my nails. Just like fall is my favorite season for all things fashion, it is also my favorite season for nail polishes. I love all those burgundies, forest greens, teals and navies. Add a touch of glitter come closer to Christmas and you’re good to go. Here’s an overview of what I wore these past 6 weeks.

As you might have seen in my recent nail polish collection video, there are quite a few brands that I love. And when I love a nail polish brand, I tend to buy multiple shades. From OPI and Catrice, to Essie and Essence: I go from high end to low end and everything in between. One brand that I love and that is very affordable is Barry M. This UK drugstore brand can be found online and I absolutely adore their Gelly Hi-Shine polish. High time I share with you the loveliness.

Happy September! And to kick off this month in which classes will start back up again, I thought I could give you an overview of some of the different nail polishes I’ve been wearing. I’ve been on a roll when it comes to doing my nails these past few weeks. I am truly enjoying doing my nails again and so I have plenty to show you. Here we go!
