I've had quite a few people comment on my nails in the past ask what I was using or wish I'd done a close-up so they could see better, etc., etc., and had a realization: Why not do a feature on nail polish? It's not book-related (Unless you're wearing the new HUNGER GAMES-inspired line from China Glaze, but I'm not even going into how wrong that is...), but it's fun. Plus, if I do this feature, I'll be more likely to re-paint my nails this week and less likely to let them chip their way to the bare bones (which would mean that I could see my nails...and if I see them, I want to bite them!).

Welcome back to another edition of Mad About Nails!

It's been a long, long time since I posted anything about nails.
...Mostly because winter once again wrecked mine. I haven't even worn any polish in about a month now because I'm using some special nail treatments instead! Next week I think I can start back up, though!

Even though I'm not wearing any polish, it doesn't mean I haven't been keeping up-to-date with new polish coming out.

A lot of fantasy is on the horizon, too!

If you're a fan of gel polish...

Look no further than the pioneer brand itself, Gelish.
Right now, they have fairy tales in their eyes!

Even the display looks magical and classy...and I totally want it!

Check out these fairy tale-inspired colors:

Pretty cool, huh?

Looking Forward to Disney's Maleficent?

MAC is also collaborating with Disney to create nail polish, lipstick, and more. I just did a post spotlighting it, but take a look at the nail polish:

If you're a fan of textured polish...or mermaids...or both...

As soon as I saw an ad in Nails Magazine for China Glaze's new Spring collection featuring mermaids, I knew I wanted every single color. The names are fun, the colors are great, and they're all matte texture!

Just look at how pretty they look in person:

These came out in late January/early February. I saw a couple of bottles at my local Sally's Beauty in the clearance bin already, but I also saw a display still out at Ulta recently. So check your local stores and see what you can find!

(Look at how nice and long my nails were before the winter destroyed them!!!!
...and a book by Jacyln Dolamore is making a cameo, whoot!)

Speaking of mermaid collections, Barry M is rolling out the Aquarium Collection (Check out UK blogger The Naily Mail's awesome coverage!) and Le Chat Nails is coming out with a new gel line entitled Mermaid Treasures. (At least, I think it's just gel. There's an image of a normal polish next to it, so I'm not sure. I'm going to have to do a little research!)

I don't know about you guys,
but I'm a sucker for themed nail polishes.
Even if I don't need them, when they're themed like this, I suddenly do need them.
Don't you???
