Hi guys! Today I thought I would share with you what I consider to be my top 5 nail polishes. It was really hard narrowing it down to just 5 (I won’t even get into how many I own), but here we are! As you can tell, I favour cream finishes. I find they wear the best, are the easiest to remove and are the most versatile. You can always add a glitter polish accent to sparkle up a polish with a cream finish.
My top 5 (in no particular order):
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
This has been a long time favourite of mine. It is a dark, almost black, purple shade. Although it is quite dark, I find it is very elegant. It looks particularly best on short/medium length nails.
Of course a polish called ‘Robyn’ would be in my top 5. This is a gorgeous, wearable blue shade. Growing up, I never was able to buy personalized items at stores (ie. keychains, mugs, etc) because Robyn would always be spelt with an ‘i’ instead of a ‘y’. When I saw this polish, nostalgia hit and I had to have it since they spelt Robyn the same way as my name is. Also, it applies like butter and you can almost get away with one coat.
OPI Hey Baby
This is a newer polish to my collection, but the formula and the colour caught my attention. This is such a smooth colour to apply, and the magenta/pink shade is stunning.
OPI Roadhouse Blues
I don’t think OPI makes this colour anymore, which is a shame, because this is a beautiful deep blue. It looks almost black in the photo, and in some lights it does look like that, but there is more blue to it than my photo captured. It is a great colour for fall and again, looks best on short/medium nails.
I had to include a glitter polish in my top 5, it just wouldn’t be complete without one. This one is one of my favourite glitters as it includes all of my favourite colours in one bottle. It has large sized purple, pink and light blue glitter pieces, as well as some tiny sparkles. I love adding it as an accent on almost any manicure. It also applies very nicely. I find that a lot of glitters with large pieces don’t apply evenly (you never end up with many of the larger pieces) but this one doesn’t seem to have that problem.
All of my swatches are two coats. I did not use a base or top coat for the photos. As you can tell from my list, I do tend to favour OPI polishes. I find they have excellent wear-time and almost never let me down. Most of my collection is OPI for that reason.
