let’s talk polish. do you wear it regularly?
i have a habit of pinning pretty polishes and manicures that never make it to my fingertips. i feel pretty good about my hands if my nails are not all jaggety (is that a word?). i tend to save manicures for special occasions like parties and trips and when i do, rarely, paint my own nails its always a nude shade because its so forgiving when it chips. when i splurge on a mani i opt for no chips because they last longer. however, once my two weeks are up, i loathe the no chip because it takes a good month for my nails to recover (can i get a witness?). contrary to the portrait that my nail polish supply (above) portrays, i just don’t bother when it comes to painting my nails.
however, this all changed after a beauty expert friend of mine suggested i try vinylux by cnd. no base coat necessary, it dries in 8 minutes and lasts a week (more here). i thought this product was certainly worth a try. i’ve been painting my nails weekly, friends, which means it does dry fast and lasts. i painted my nails, sat in bed, watched a tv show and went to sleep (no sheet marks) and the polish lasted right up to a week with a few minor chips at the tips of my nail (you can keep applying a top coat throughout the week – which i didn’t do). it’s a game changer as far as i’m concerned.
ok, i’m off to paint my nails – – seriously!
