My top 10 nail varnish choices

I've shared my top 10 lipsticks, so I thought I'd also share my top 10 nail varnishes - I'm rarely without colour on my nails, and there's so many that I love it was hard to choose! Without further ado, then...

Rimmel 60 Seconds in 620 How Do You Lilac It? // I love the formula of these nail varnishes - dunno about 60 secs but they do dry pretty quick, and lilac is my fave colour if you couldn't tell by the title of my blog. This is a pinky-toned lilac and looks so pretty.

O.P.I in Are We There Yet? // I'd not tried any O.P.I til last year when I picked some up pretty cheap online - and boy am I glad I did, because they're a dream. This one's a reddy-coral and I loooove it.

Essie Vested Interest // This looks kind of like a sludgey colour in the bottle and I'm not sure what drew me to it, but it looks well sophisticated on the nails. Definitely a summer-autumn transitional shade. Fancy words.

Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish in Pink // This is such a luxury - mine was a gift, there's no way I'd be paying around £20 for a nail varnish, but honestly it possibly is worth it. It's the sparkliest thing I've EVER seen. Bugger to get off, though.

Ted Baker nail varnish in Coral // This one doesn't actually have a shade name so I'm just making it up if I'm honest, but I proper love this shade and it's a damn good polish too. There's even a matching lip gloss, which I own. And love.

AVON nailwear pro+ in Mint // Again, no shade name - but it's a mint green so u know. It's more on the bluey side, but that suits me better than green so I'm not complaining. Another great formula and I know they do soooooooo many shades.

Maybelline super stay in 265 Divine Wine // These are some of the best nail varnishes I've tried, and maroon shades are my favourite for Autumn. Enough said, really.

Barry M nail paint in Mediterranean // This is part of the Aquarium collection, and it really is the most perfect mermaid shade - who doesn't want mermaid nails? Chips like a bitch, of course, but kinda most definitely worth it.

Essie The Lace is On // If you know me, you'll know I have an obsession with Essie nail varnishes and it was hard not to just put 10 of them in this post - but alas, I had to share the love. This really is a gem from my collection though. Shimmery darky pink. Perfect.

Nail HQ Gel Top Coat* // These were in our goody bags for the North West Blogger Meet Up, and although I'm often too lazy to use a top coat when I do - this is THE ONE.

Please tell me your fave nail varnishes - I already own way too many but I'm still always on the look out for more!
