My Top 10 Nail Polishes

I was suffering a touch of of bloggers block this evening so asked the world of Twitter what post they would like to see on here and they voted for a nail polish related post - Ya know, because there aren't enough of those on here already.
Instead of the same ol' NOTD post that I get up here every couple of days, I thought I'd do a run down of my top 10 nail polishes. Now, my favourite nail polishes are forever changing but I never tire of these 10 nail polishes and have worn them far too many times and still got complimented on each shade whenever I do.

So, meet the line up...
These are my top 10 nail shades, the first five are my favourite colourful nail polishes and the bottom five are my favourite neutral shades.

Colourful Nail Polishes:
From left to right:
1. Barry M - Navy Blue
2. O.P.I - Gargantuan Green Grape
3. Lancome - Orange Fluorama
4. Models Own - Lemon Meringue
5. Maybelline Forever Strong in Hot Salsa

The Neutral Nail Polishes:
From left to right:
1. Bourjois So Laque in Rose Lounge
2. O.P.I - Moon Over Mumbai
3. Essie - Body Language
4. Natio - Brandy
5. MAC - Light Affair

You'll probably notice that O.P.I, Essie and MAC all look strikingly similar and they kind of are but there is a method to my madness, I assure you. MAC 'Light Affair' was a limited edition nail polish from their Love Lace (or something like that) collection a year or so ago but I wasn't that amazed by the shade until Mandy wore it and picked up two back ups of it but by the time I cottoned on, it was sold out. After some tweeting with fellow beauty bloggers, Yinka of VexintheCity informed me that the nearest shades to the MAC one were the O.P.I and Essie versions. Well, that set me off on a wild goose chase and while I managed to get hold of Essie 'Body Language' fairly easily, the same couldn't be said for O.P.I 'Moon Over Mumbai. This was when of Helen of Just-Nice-Things came to my rescue and said she wouldn't mind doing a swap with me for it which is exactly how it came to be in my collection. The things we do for beauty, right?

I digress. Everyone should own a good grey toned neutral shade because they tend to be quite flattering and don't look out of place in the office or a night out so they always come in handy. The same goes for a nice coral nail polish as well as a blue but the latter may not be everyones cup of tea!
