My 10 most used polishes

When you have as many polishes as I do (about 90 at the moment) it is impossible to wear them all equally much! Here is a list of the 10 polishes I’ve used the most

Essie – Fiji

3 coats

This is a very, very light pink that’s almost white. I’ve been using this as a makeshift white because I only just recently got an actual white polish and I this wasn’t as pink as I’d had hoped when I bought, so to get some use out of it I held off buying an actual white. After swatching this, I must admit that it has grown on me and I just might consider wearing it on its own..

Essie – Muchi, Muchi

3 coats – could need 4

When I found out that Fiji wasn’t pink enough for me, I got this one instead. This is just the perfect nude pink in my opinion, which is also why I’ve used 2/3 of it. I’ll definitely replace this when it’s all used up! Shown above is 3 coats, but I think I could have gone with 4.

L’Oréal – Banana Pop

2 coats
2 coats

I don’t think I’ve ever worn this polish on its own except for this swatch and day 3 of the nail polish challenge. I don’t like this color on my skintone, but I use it for nail art all the time so I’ve only got 1/4 left.

E.L.F – Punk Purple


2 coats

This is a recent favorite of mine. It is a purple leaning red and I just think it is so pretty, so I’ve been wearing it a lot since I got it. The brush is not very good, so it tends to get a little streaky, but top coat usually fixes this.

Sephora – Dangerous

1 coat
1 coat

I mentioned this in my One Coat Wonders too. It could use two coats, but then it loses some of the shimmer, so I usually just leave it at one. The shimmer doesn’t transfer on to the nail as much as you’d hope from looking at the bottle.

Essie – Bordeaux

2 coats

This is one of those classic polishes that I keep on coming back to. It is a classic red and this could even be a one coater if you’re careful when applying.

Essie – Leading Lady

2 coats
2 coats

This is one of my go-to polishes for christmas. Doesn’t it just scream christmas to you?

Essie – Mezmerised

1 coat
1 coat

I mentioned this in my One Coat Wonders too, I believe. This has an amazing formula and is just such a classic, pretty blue that I keep reaching for.

Maybelline – Light Up

IMG_1679So, yeah.. I got lazy when it was time to swatch the two glitters – I didn’t feel like going through the hazzle of taking them off again, so these are just bottle shots – sorry..

This is a pretty silver glitter. It is opaque on its own in 2 colors and has a sand-y texture and holographic glitters. I just love this!

L’Oréal – White Gold

IMG_1678I’ve only got a teeny, tiny bit left in this one and it’s gotten all gloopy and thick 😦 This is one of those glitter polishes that is a weird mix between gold and silver, but this leans just slightly more gold in my opinion. I’ll have to get another one of these!

So these are my top 10 most used polishes! Do you have any of these?

    Elsker Muchi, Muchi! Det er den eneste neglelak jeg nogensinde aktivt er gået ud og har købt, efter jeg så den på dine negle. Klar favorit. Så yndig (:
