Want to know what the heck I'm talking about? Here's a list of commonly used polishing terms you may see here or on other polish or beauty blogs. I'll be expanding the list along the way.
3 Free - Nail polish that is made produced without the ingredients Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP. In other words, nail laquer that is "non-toxic".
Konad - metal plate and stamp set that allows one to transfer a simple or detailed design from the metal plate onto a rubber stamp, then onto the nail.
Bundle Monster aka BM - Same as Konad, only a different brand
NOTD - nails of the day
Seche Vite aka SV - super duper shiny top coat - my favorite
Unicorn Pee - Clarins 230 - the holy grail of beautful polishes. Some bloggers may refer to other polishes with the same visual impact also as Unicorn Pee, but my understanding is that Clarins 230 is the original. For more info - http://pretty-random.com/clarins230
Unicorn Puke - a limited edition polish produced by Cult Nails, actually labeled Unicorn Puke on the bottom of the bottle. This polish is now available in a more traditional name "Clairvoyant". See swatches and label here
Haul - basically a shopping spree resulting in many happy purchases
Lemming - per urban dictionary: A lemming refers to a purchase/wished-for-item which results from reading an enthusiastic post about a new fabulous product. Overcome by compulsion, readers follow like lemmings diving off a cliff.
VNL - kind of like VPL but less embarassing, it's the "visible nail line"
Top coat eater - Eeeeek!!!! Heavy glitter nail polishes are usually called this because of their ability to...well, eat up your top coat. If you have ever used a chunky glitter (think Rock Star by Milani) then you know what I'm talking about. Don't even try putting on tights or pantyhose while wearing a top coat eater. Snag city.
Bonder - Orly base coat. Makes your nail polish really "stick" to your nail.
