My Nail Polish Community

Today I have something a little different. Check out this post by Elizabeth; it's about all the different "personalities" of nail polish that lacquer addicts have. Deborah over at Love, Varnish, Chocolate and More expanded on that idea and gave an example of each one of the "personalities", so that's what I'm going to do here!

The Tease: The polish that you love but you're afraid to wear because it's discontinued and you don't have a back up bottle.
OPI Mad as a Hatter - I picked this up when it was first in stores, without knowing it would soon become one of the most sought after polishes of all time! I never did a blog post on this collection, though I can't for the life of me remember why I didn't! I'll have to do that one of these days.

The Senior: One of the first polishes you owned. Now it's all thick and you don't really like the color anymore but you keep it anyway because it has memories.
OPI Don't Melbourne The Toast - It's not that I don't like this guy, but I don't think I've worn it since the first year I got it. It's one of the first OPIs I ever own. *sigh* Memories!

The Ugly One: The polish that you absolutely hate in every way but you keep it anyway to laugh at how weird it is.
BB Couture Kelly's Green - This is cheating, because I don't hate this in any way! I love it! But it definitely is "ugly pretty" and I don't think it's one that most people love when they see it. It is the best kind of crazy polish in my opinion!

The Superficial: The polish that looks fantastic in the bottle but is all kinds of crap when you try to put it on.
OPI Pepe's Purple Passion - This one is just sad times. That lovely shimmer looks like it's drowning, it sinks so badly and it ends up looking like mud on the nail.

The Rocky Road: The polish that always insists on being lumpy.
China Glaze Fortune Teller - One of my favorite polishes ever, but seriously chunk-tastic! Multiple coats of top coat is required to get it smooth.

The Multiplier:That one shade of polish color that you can't stop yourself from buying every time you see it.
Essie Cute As a Button - I'm a coral/pink girl! Just search for "pink" or "coral" on my blog and you'll find like a zillion posts. I even created my own coral/pink with Rescue Beauty Lounge called Kellie Gonzo!

The Ex: The polish that used to be your favorite but now sits in the back of your stash collecting dust.
Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle - I really love this polish but I haven't worn it in forever. Whenever I see DLs in a store, I always pick up Razzle Dazzle thinking it's some new and gorgeous color and I'm embarrassed every time to see what it really is and that I don't recognize it haha.

The Beast: The polish that you like but never wear because it's a giant pain in the butt to remove.
Zoya Charla - Ooh this one is so gorgeous but I never wear it because it's ridiculous to remove! Smurf fingers!

The Party Animal: The polish you can wear to any party or festivity, and it will always look good with everything!
Rescue Beauty Lounge Kellie Gonzo - Did I sneak this in a second time? What a shameless plug! ;) But for real, I feel like I can wear this anywhere, any time of year, and it always looks perfect!

The Socialite: The polish that caused quite a buzz at launch, but isn't as easy to get as one might think.
Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed - This one was a limited edition polish that quickly became HTF so I'm so glad I got it when I did. It's so pretty and unique!

I hope you thought these were fun and feel free to post your own in the comments or on your own blog if you have one! Thanks Elizabeth and Deb for the fun :) Also be sure to enter my 5th Blogiversary Giveaway if you haven't yet!
