Me too!

Ooh glad it's not just me! Seems to be "in" at the moment, personally I don't understand why you'd want your nails and skin to blend into one

I like Nudes, but only when I can stamp on the top of them, or coat them in glitter. Think that kinda stops them being nudes.

I also dislike the crystal nail file. I'd rather use a cheapy one I can chuck away after a couple uses. I did buy a few glass ones to keep in the car and my bag though so that they're there for emergencies. But I prefer a normal basic one Laughing


Not a fan of nudes, i'm too pale for them. They make me look ill.

I prefer an old style match box pale

If I have a rough nail I'll head for the kitchen drawers and used the match box long before I'll head for my nail box Embarassed
Thats bad isn't it? lol

I've never liked emery - could only just bare the black fine ones. A matchbox would make me scream!

I looooove my Leighton Denny and have a small one in my bag too. I can't stand to cut my nails and I can actually file them down quickly with these - doing it all wrong back and forth sawing like a mad woman!

If anyone wants rid of theirs I'm happy to have spares and swap for every emery board in the house - some of which are untouched! Oh and I have a curvy emery - that made me shudder too!

Oh & I don't like nude either, in fact I don't like really pale unless its somethign unnatural like blue or green! Pale pink, pale fawn, white. All look a bit flesh like and ick to me.

good job we're not all the same - wouldn't life be boring?

I don't like cutting my nails with scissors either, but it takes so long to just file them down. I also detest nail clippers - the thought of using them on my fingernails makes me feel ill. pale

With the Leighton Denny, if you file like crazy it really doesn't take too long - its much much more effective than an emery file. If I actually have to cut I use cuticle nippers and take chunks off rather than trying to cut across in one go - I get the heebygeebies my nail will split up the middle if I cut across in one. I use clippers on my toes - mainly coz I can't bend like I used to for long enough to do much else;)

not a huge OPI fan either - similar range of colours with China Glaze which is at half the price. I don't have a problem with either chipping or the quality.

And I'm over the textures, concrete, leather, feathers, sand, egg shells, cotton wool, muddy field, cactus... (ok I made the last 3 up) - but enough - most of the sand swatches I have seen, seem to add tons of top coat and make it a glitter anyway. I'm a sucker for glitter bombs tho.
