Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward

This beauty is Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward.

It’s from the Selfie collection, a collection of six fun, bright summer shades.

Best Face Forward is alone in the collection as the only flakie polish. It’s a purple – that sometimes looks inky blue – with cyan blue and pinky-purple flakies in it.

I couldn’t quite capture the sparkle of the flakies in the photo, and in truth, they are best visible in fluorescent light (or perhaps sunlight – but that’s now gone in my part of the UK!)

There’s a bit of tip wear visible, but that’s because this is day four of wearing this polish, and I’ve done some hard core cleaning in these nails over that time! Morgan Taylor polishes are probably my favourite for wear length. They rarely chip and they last ages on me.

My nails are a different shape these days. I broke the middle nail while I was away on holiday, and I decided to shorten them all to match. I wasn’t entirely ready to return to my squared shape, and they’re not long enough to be almond again, so I’ve compromised with rounded nails. I’m not overly happy with this shape on me. But they’ll grow in no time, so I shall just have to put up with it for a bit. I have to say, I forgot how easy it was to type without excessively long nails. People still think my current nails are long, but they feel so short to me.

Here’s a journey through my nail shape in Morgan Taylor polishes. Which shape do you prefer?

My nail shapes: square (Nov 2012 – Dec 2016), almond (Dec 2016 – July 2017), rounded (July 2017)


I always like the behind the scenes videos that Morgan Taylor puts together – here’s the one for the Selfie advert.

The color is nice!


Great colour!
Luckily my nails are horrible at the moment so it is easier not to buy more polish…
I like rounded nails a lot, but I think nail art looks best on square nails, for some weird reason. You wear all shapes very well and I can’t decide which one I prefer!


I like the shorter length you currently have, a bit more squoval shaped. The almond is my least favorite.
