Hi everyone, my name is Rachelle and I’m a nail polish hoarder. I’m pretty sure I have over 80+ bottles “it’s sad really”. While I do not recommend anyone having that many nail polishes, I do think that there’s few that a girl should have. Today I will be sharing with you all my favorites.
Nude – I don’t really wear nude polishes because I don’t always want a subtle look but when I do the two below are my faves. The OPI-DS Classic is shimmery without being overwhelming, and Chanel – Beige has this gorgeous iridescent shimmer.

Red – I’ve tried a lot of red polishes, and I think every girl needs a red polish. It is fun, feminine and timeless. My all time faves are:OPI – Thrill of Brazil | Deborah Lippmann – It’s Raining Men | Chanel – Pirate | OPI – The Spy Who Loved Me | Essie – Snap Happy

Pink – I love pink nails specially during summer time. I broke it down to a neon pink, a bright “Hello Kitty” pink and a more romantic pink.Illamasqua – Collide | OPI – Short Story | Chanel – May
Blue – I have way too many blue polishes it was so hard to play favorites with all of them but these get the most action. The China Glaze one is actually the perfect Tiffany Blue hence the name ‘For Audrey’.China Glaze – For Audrey | Essie – Bikini so teeny | England – Galahad | Butter London – Slapper

Green – I had to bring 5 into this category because they are all so different. I know the Chanel – Peridot is often imitated but no other brand can get it to look the same once you apply it. Trust me I did the research. Illamasqua is such a great brand they make the most vibrant nail polishes.
Purple – Chanel usually like to discontinue nail polishes, and the Vamp came out in 1994. It was in such high demand that they had to bring it back. When I wanted to get mine I had to go to 3 different stores, and I got the last bottle at the third store. It is that AMAZING! It was worn by Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction.
