Hope this Monday morning is finding you well! Today, let’s talk nails! :)
I love having my nails painted. It makes me feel put-together and fancy. I don’t pay for manicures (I’m a frugal student’s wife), so I do my own nails at home. With my lifestyle, the polish never lasts more than a couple of days, but it’s fun nonetheless :)
My favorite brand is Essie. Though Essie polishes may not hold up better than any other brand, the colors are beautiful, the paint is quality, and they don’t dry up.
My newest favorite is the middle—Essie’s “Chinchilly”. It’s a pretty gray with a purplish tint.
Essie’s “Mojito Madness” is a great green for March and the onset of spring! (I’m actually wearing it right now!) Any color looks fun coated with the shiny confetti of Essie’s “Jazzy Jubilant”!
When I want to spend less for a pretty color, I go with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri. They’re only about $3.99, and they dry quickly and last quite a while. The brush is thick and easily glides onto the nail.
The “Cinna-Snap” and “Jet Set Jade” are really dark, so they’re typically my winter colors. But Sally Hansen’s “Pink Blink” is light and pastel for spring or summer!
When I have time, I apply a topcoat of Essie’s “No Chips Ahead”. It seems to make the paint job last an extra day or so.
And if money was no object, I’d be snagging these beautiful shades for warmer weather!
And the cheaper options:
What’s your favorite color to wear? Do you use regular polish, gel, or Jamberry wraps?
