If You Weren't Aware...

...I kind of have a "thing" for nail polish. Lucky for you, this obsession has lead to some pretty awesome manicures. I have included a photo gallery of my favorites because looking at pictures is fun, and maybe you'll even get a little inspiration for your next paint job. Your manicure will thank me. (My blog says you're welcome, because it's polite like that.)

Chanel Blue Satin + Sally Hansen DVD, American Apparel Factory Grey + Cover Girl City Lights, Illamasqua Phallic + OPI Catch Me In Your Net

Nfu-Oh 65, Essie Bright Tights, American Apparel Mount Royal

OPI Blue My Mind + Sally Hansen Laser, Essie Lilacism + Milani Hi-Res + Color Club Wild At Heart, Essie Chinchilly + Nicole by OPI You're A Star

Sinful Black + Wet 'n Wild Kaleidoscope, Sally Hansen Blue Me Away, Illamasqua Phallic + Sally Hansen Laser

Orly Luxe + Sinful Colors Black On Black + Essie Matte About You topcoat (Ruffian inspired), Chanel Khaki Vert

Maybe one day I'll do a YouTube tutorial of some of the more complex combinations, but there really is not much to any of it other than practice, practice, practice! Not to mention that DIY manicures are my excuse to spend more money on nail polish. Okay, one of many excuses.

What are your favorite brands and/or colors? (I'm asking because, who knows, maybe my collection is missing something.) I'm really not trying to be sarcastic.
