Eight most popular nail polishes of all time

I recently went through my nail polish stash and pared it down to a dozen or so favorites – or what I think may be favorites if and when I decide to reach for that color.

I tend to take my own nail polish to the salon for pedicures and those times when I get a regular manicure. That way any chips can be touched up at home.

Several months of the year, though, I opt for gel or dip nails. I have good, strong nails but they don’t play well in the garden. And they don’t get along well with Christmas trees and holiday decorating. So, I guess I favor dip or gel most of the time.

Now to the point of this post – and, yes, I got a bit sidetracked.

InStyle recently listed eight of the most popular nail polish shades of all time. Back to my stash – only one of those shades is on the list.

The faves: Essie Ballet Slippers, OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, Dior Vernis Rouge 999, Sally Hanson Miracle Gel Get Mod, Deborah Lippman All Fired Up, Essie Bikini So Teeny, Chanel Le Vernis Rouge Noir and OPI Taupe-less Beach.

I tend to favor pastel shades, so, of course, I own the popular Ballet Slippers.

InStyle goes into a little detail about each of these best-sellers. Check it out here.
