Do You Have a Go-To Nail Color?

That's me, beauty blogging. Unfortunately, I love my nail color so much I cannot stop staring. Must look at screen, not at nails. Anyway, have you ever fallen so hard for a polish that you literally can't take your eyes off of it?

Changing seasons often means swapping hues and other beauty 'dos, but I plan on sticking with this rich red a little longer (and even ordered an extra bottle for touch-ups). Do you have a go-to shade that you grab first from your stash or at the nail salon?

Essie's Jag-u-are and another Essie (the tag fell off the bottom of the bottle :( ) it's a beautiful, dusty rose with a gold shimmer. I love it; it's the exact shade of the undertones in my skin.

There's a color that they have at my nail salon that I haven't been able to find anywhere that I LOVE! It's this amazing brownish-grayish color (that sounds awful but it really is gorgeous, just a little darker than neutral so work-appropriate too). I end up just staring at my nails! For my toes, I love navy blue for some reason. It looks amazing with all of my shoes.

I'm almost ashamed that I recognize so many of these colors by name! I usually only do my toes also. In winter I like OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark and in the summer I love OPI's Cajun Shrimp or the now discontinued Year of the Dragon.

I took a lovely hot-pink polish about 1 year and a half ago and felt in love with it - to the point it almost became a trademark, LoL. Unfortunately that colour probably isn't as fashionable as it was and finding it is getting real hard - I had to check in 6-7 different shops to find one, last time.

Either Sephora by OPI Metro Chic or OPI Tickle My France-Y. Both are versatile, gorgeous and so pretty no matter what the season ... or the outfit!

OPI's "I'm not really a waitress" and "Chick Flick Cherry" can go year round with me.

I have a few "go to" colors depending on the season. They're all OPI. "I'm Not Really a Waitress" (red), "Por Favor" (lilacy purple) and "I'm Fondue You" (dark brown).

Generally, reds and pinks with cool undertones. It matches my natural coloring.

Other than clear, which is the all-purpose go-to, I'm partial to Revlon's Vixen and their new Sheer Petal. I actually like L'Oreal's Stroke of Midnight better than Vixen, but it takes a lot longer to dry. Sheer Petal is a pain to get even, but it's just so flattering if you can get it on in one coat with minimal streaking. One other favorite of mine is Nail-Aid's Brush On Wraps, which has a sheer pearl tint that's subtle and sophisticated at the same time, but suffers from the common streakiness of sheer polishes.

Mine is Barney purple. Its a weird violet color. It sfunny because it was given to me by my cousin way back when and it never appealed to me at all I think it was even like a kiddie brand. And then one day i started painting my nails out of boredom and loved it. And have since bought a very similar color only more pink. :) I also have a hot shimmery pink one that I love.

I painted my nails "tokyo doll" by sinful colors and I stared at my hands for literally a total of 2 hours. I couldn't stop glancing! It's like the most gorgeous pink I've ever seen.

Vodka and caviar by OPI. I'm not a big manicure person, but I love it for pedicures... I catch sight of it from the corner of my eye and it's just so pretty!

My two faves "OPI Dutch Tulips" and "OPI Red" are the only choices for pedicures. Manicures are always clear polish.

My fall back color is called "Black Diamonds" by China Glaze. It's a black base with silver micro-glitter in it so while it's dark, it's not black. I give myself fantastic manicures all the time, so I always have my nails painted. Right now my nails are "For Audrey" a Tiffany blue by China Glaze and I have neon orange toenails, a color also by China Glaze. Bella, I have to know, what is that gorgeous color that you're wearing in your picture?
