Day 2: Your Least Favorite Polish

Hello, Everyone!  Here's the continuation of the 30 Day Nail Polish Challenge.  Let me just get straight to the point.  This challenge was extremely annoying.  So, the winner for the "Least Favorite Polish" challenge was SUPREMELY easy to pick.  The winner is hands down OPI DS mystery.  I hate this color so much, I could keep ranting on and on and on... But I won't.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Day 2: Your Least Favorite Polish is... OPI DS mystery

What's the mystery?  I don't know.  But it's a mystery why anyone would like this or wear this.

 The pictures make it look much better than it really is.  In real life, the color almost looks black.  And it just looks grainy and awful and ugly and all sorts of other adjectives.

It was painful for me to wear this in public, but I did.  For the sake of the challenge.
I hate everything about this color.  It can not redeem itself.  Even the removal was annoying.  It wasn't hard to remove, but all the little gold shimmer/glitter particles got all over my hands.

I didn't bother with a top coat because I didn't plan on wearing more than a day.  I'm just glad I can put this behind me and never wear it again.

*continues rant* 
I think I'm just angry because I payed so much for this color and I hate it.  It makes me angry just looking at it.  OKAY.  I'm done.  Have a nice day.

What is your least favorite polish?

Day 1: Your Favorite Nail Polish

Hello, Everyone!  Today I start the 30 Day Nail Polish Challenge!  Today's challenge is "your favorite nail polish".
Let me tell you, this one was HARD to pick.  I eventually came between two colors.  Lippmann Across the Universe and Nfu Oh 51.  I COULD NOT PICK.  Well, I mean, I did, but it was very hard.  And the winner for today's challenge is...

DAY 1: Your Favorite Nail Polish is... Nfu Oh 51

Just as a warning, it was impossible NOT to take a million pictures of this polish. 

 The picture below is awkward, but it is the only one that shows the green duochrome!
 Look at it up close!  Look at the flakies! They change color in different light!

 Look at the green, pink, purple, and blue!
 Can we all agree that this is awesome in liquid polish form?

I used three thin coats, waiting for each coat to completely dry before adding another coat.  I used Out The Door top coat instead of Seche Vite because I didn't want to risk shrinkage.  Shrinkage and a jelly based polish do not agree. :D

This color is normally layered over another (I like using navy blues), but I wanted to show Nfu Oh 51 in its raw glory.

Now, I ask you:

What is your favorite color?
