Thanks - I'll try that. I always end up with polish all over the nails and outside too

i usually make sure that when i take the brush out the bottle i only have polish on one side of the brush and that it's just enough to cover one nail.

Nars Zulu is on the top of my list! Chanel rarely disappoints, the purple Strong one is gorgeous.

frk-frost, you could also try a nail polish remover pen - Essie and Orly both make them. They're godsends for me!

I can't live without nail polish corrector pen especially if I' don't use O.P.I.! Essence works for me and it's cheap as well (around 2€).

Dupes for these nude shades
Can anyone recommend a similar nude polish to this D&G one? Or a shade similar to Borghese's Almondine, but without the shimmer.

I think I actually have one, I just haven't bothered to use it It's from Sephora and not very good. Maybe I should try another one

I have the Orly one and like it a lot. It comes with 2 replacement tips too. You can also use a small brush and nail polish remover (but the non-acetone stuff doesn't work well for this trick). I prefer to just do my nails right before bed and then shower in the AM and any small mistakes I've made will come off as I'm washing my hair

I got this color today - it has a purple sheen, very pretty!

I need to find a dupe for this shade. The formula isn't great and the bottle very small. Please help?

^^Django is a pain in the a$$ to apply. It goes on very streaky, hate it.
Also, the colour looked much nicer in the bottle .
