^A lot of people will say Seche Vite but personally I hated it . . . too thick so it peeled, and it gummed up after six months no matter how much Seche Restore I added. Maybe I just got a bad bottle, but I'm going to try other topcoats first. I think I'll try Sally Hansen Insta-Dri first since it's a classic and super cheap. The OPI one got good reviews on MUA too.

I just bought a very cheap black nail polish and the matching matt top coat thingy by Essence and it actually looks pretty nice. I think the look from that picture can probably be recreated very easily that way. My nails are very short though so it would look stupid on my nails.

I like the Sally Hansen one too! I is like $5 and comes in a red glass bottle. I have also tried the opi and Essie's "good to go" but they get thick and you have to almost spread it over your nail. Sally's stays thin and you don't even have to worry, you could paint it on with your eyes closed it goes on so smoothly! And it helps it dry faster (to the touch, the underneath will still dent if you bump your nail until it's fully dry of course).

My favourite top coat is Mavala Dry, but I haven't found a store that sells in in NYC yet. I've been using Essie's and I really don't like it, it peels off easily so it means the colour chips off in big chunks.

^I bought mini box those and shatter. Can't wait to test those.

I had green nailpolish (Bieber's Lime and It's not rocket science top of it) and those totally made my nails bright, neonish yellow. Unbelievable ugly. I guess they had to react some chemical when I was working, because even red has never made my nails looks so bad. But still, no more green a while for me. That's kind of sad that those lasted so good so long.. ironic!

I just painted the top of my coral nails orange. Unfortunately my execution of the idea is terrible but I love the idea of "colorblocking" on your nails . Thinking about trying yellow tips on turquoise...

This one is kind of ugly but I'm fascinated by the colour.

Strangely enough, I'm having a really hard time finding a good black nail polish.
I've tried cheap ones that peel after a day and I've tried some more expensive ones that were rather bland. Would you guys recommend OPI?

^I love opi black onyx! i used to use chanel black satin, but honestly, it's definitely not worth the price tag.

I have a color that's very similar to that yellow one....i think it's called fiercely fiona and it was released in the shrek collection. i bought it in one of the mini pack things and that was my least favorite until i tried it...it's strange but actually cool in a quirky kind of way...it looks great with a bit of a tan!

i have to get that silver shatter!! i have black shatter and i like it but i can't picture myself using it in the summer...it looks so good with mermaids tears, which i really want too!!
