Dam. it won't let me open the link:mad:

Cuppa Jo has been quite popular, but then I think that colour will always be 'in'.
Wierd - works for me...I'll pm it to you see if that makes a difference.

I bought two gorgeous nail polishes at my local suppliers. One is a slate grey and the other is a two tone emerald green/burgandy colour (bit like mystic topaz stone).

I wore the slate grey on my nails for a few days when my nails needed filling, and all my customers commented on it. I ended up retailing 5 bottles of the stuff within a week!:lol:

The green/burgandy one is lovely on toes - it sort of changes colour depending on the light.

They are both made by Millennium. Really nice polishes to work with too.

I know where you are coming from Minks.....EVERYONE is wearing it...all the singers and celebs on the Two of Us......only Hannah Waterman was slightly different and had her nails longer and stiletto shaped, which was sooo cool!!!...but they were still black!!

I am still in love with Nail Noir though....and I have always loved Cuppa Joe (chocolate brown)........but hey I don't want to follow the crowd I want to lead the way!!!
So you say Silver ,Heather....I'm on it!!!!.now where did I put that LOOK BOOK?????

hmmm...strange...looks like Lithuania missed smth out again...there was no obsession with dark polishes...well...there are some who wears nails like that...but not tooo much...sadly...i like the look in general...but not on my self....

last summer trend was all shades of hot pink & bright white... & the autumn & winter are ruled by quite pale greens & browns...army camouflage theme i'd say...

& it looks like purpules...such aubergine like colours & red coloures are gonna take over comming spring...

its funny how polish colours change suddenly with clients.....at one time dark and black would have not been picked by my clients, too dark and goth looking, now i cant seem to change their minds from these dark & black colours. i do like it though, but only on shorter nails as the longer nail wearer, it looks too much.
one of my clients came in with channel black satin,(waste of dosh!) wanting me to paint it on her nails, thats cool, but when trying it, came across too thick (like Brisa top gel:eek: ) and ended up using voodoo by creative......see, you cant beat the professionals!!

I love black but even I have been forced to change from black to blue to dark red and now I'm wearing purple.
I always say that black goes with anything but as I wear mainly black clothing my excuse doesn't work:lol: .

I've seen the Zoya, Essie and China Glaze collections for spring, they're all pale french and pastel colours - a bit uninspired IMO if I'm honest. I've been loving the darker, more dramatic colours for winter and I've just stocked up on some rich, deep colours from Orly and Zoya. Apparently white and silver are in for spring from Chanel so it will be interesting to see if people jump on the band wagon like they did with Black Satin.

Just how I feel - so fed up with French. Everyone ooohs and aahs at all the colours and nail art then say, "but I'll have my usual French." Grrrrrr!!
