I have been on a nail polish binge lately. There are just so many pretty pictures on pinterest. PLUS I'm trying to be more thrifty these days and the reality is that for every gel manicure I get, I could also go out and buy like 4 new nail polishes. Actually, it's way more nail polishes than that, since I found a place that sells OPI for $5.50 (YES!). And there's no way I'm going to buy 4 new nail polishes every 2 weeks, so I'm definitely going to be saving some money.
I've also found my own manicure technique. If I use. I love Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat. It works wonderfully and I find that when I use that as a base coat, then apply a couple coats of OPI and another top coat that my manicure lasts for at least several days - probably 4 to 5. I except this won't work as well in the summer when I start spending more time outdoors and in the pool, but we'll see.
Fresh Frog of Bel Air is perfect for St. Patrick's Day but I think it would look even better if it had an opaque green underneath it. It took me about 3 (maybe even 4!) coats to get this much density in the glitter.
|My quest for the perfect St. Patrick's Day green has come to an end.|
I've never used Essie before but it seems to be pretty popular. Experiences? Opinions?
