i've never gotten acrylic but i don't think it's like that...
it's basically a special sort of gel nail polish and i think you have to soak in some sort of solution to get it off...?
i really don't know a whole lot about it...

am not sure, but i think this may be what i got...
the colors i looked through didn't have OPI names though, so maybe not

^^Maybe you mean gelish (gel+polish=the application of nail polish, hardens like a gel)? At least here it's called like that. It's soak off gel polish. My friend absolutely loves this, it looks very very natural, I never would have guessed that she had something on. I might give it a try one day.:p

I had a crush on Chanel's Pulsion:

Nail Galore

But then i saw that OPI had this one, You're a Pisa work:

Casual lavish

I of course went for the OPI, since i trust them more than Chanel. What do you think?

^ I really like Chanel's Pulsion! And that comes from a person who hates pink!
I haven't tried the one by OPI though so i can't tell my opinion about it.

wow Chanel's Pulsion looks so great! The great bit about it is the shine but I find that Chanel nailpolish chips easily.

^ agree. Chanel has lovely colors but the polish doesnt last worth a hoot on me.
Im liking Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian - a black with red microscopic flecks that glows but isnt glittery. RBL wears like iron if I use their base coat and top coat. Goes on like a dream and the brush is easy to use. Dries medium-fast.

^I like the Chanel one best judging by the color, but I've never been a big fan of Chanel nail polish (not that good considering the price IMO)

^^ Thanks for your answer ChrissyM!

I am currently addicted to Gasoline by Goosh. It is a dark purple with high reflective shimmer. The magpie in me loves the shine, so I have had on since New Year's Eve which is a shocker for me as I change my nail color daily!

I got this twin set from my classmate, so cute!
Essence Mr. Big (beautiful fuchsia creme colour base)+Carrie (glitter top coat). Don't you just love these names?:p

I'm glad that Mr. Big needs only one coat.
