Good morning fellow varnish junkies! As promised, I have the results of my nail polish survey. First off I would like to say thank you to all those who participated. I was very excited and amazed to see people all over the world responded including: Canada, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, Greece, Guam, Puerto Rico, Slovenia and the UK! It’s simply amazing to me that I can just put something on a website and people everywhere are viewing my words and pictures! Ok enough with the sappiness and onto the results.
Question #1 asked what is your favorite brand of nail polish. I gave a list of 13 brands along with “None of the above” and “I change my mind every day!”
- OPI took the cake, as they say, with 45% of the votes
- “I change my mind every day!” was second with 23% (why doesn’t that surprise me?)
- China Glaze was 14%
- Zoya was 4%
- Rescue Beauty Lounge, Chanel and “None of the above” tied with 3%
- Deborah Lippmann, Misa and Sally Hansen all had 1%
- Butter London, Adoree, Sephora for OPI, Orly and Creative Nail Design did not rank
I was not at all surprised that OPI won considering their very wide range of colors, formulas, affordable pricing and availability all over the world. I was a bit surprised that some of the others scored so low or not at all though, especially Creative Nail Design and Butter London.
Question #2 asked what is your favorite nail polish color in general and I listed most general colors I could think of
- Red was 26%
- Blue was 22%
- Purple was 14%
- Pink was 12%
- Black was 10% (yahoo!)
- Green was 6%
- Brown was 4%
- Grey was 3%
- Silver & Gold tied with 1%
- White, orange & yellow didn’t rank
I must admit I was surprised that red was number one for some reason. I know that red is a classic universal color, but since I lean towards the funkier colors myself, I didn’t expect it to be quite so high.Â
Question #3 asked what is your favorite nail polish formula
- Creme was 42%
- Shimmer was 29%
- Holographic was 9%
- Duo/Multichrome was 7%
- Jelly & Frost tied at 4%
- Glitter, Opalescent & Metallic tied at 1%
- Sheer & Foil didn’t rank
Now I love a good creme, don’t get me wrong, but I expected shimmer to win this one. It seems to me that there are SO many more shimmers out there than cremes, but maybe that’s why creme’s win out! It’s harder to find a good creme so when people do they cherish and love it! I love both almost equally, it just depends on my mood. I hope you enjoyed this survey and will continue to tune in for more fun stuff. In the next month or so I plan on doing another really great contest, so keep posted!!
Vamp it up!
