I have recently figured out the best way to apply nail polish to avoid chips. It works for almost all brands, as long as you ensure to take the time to apply a base and a top coat. This is my first video for you guys! So let me know what you think, and if you’d like to see more!
Neon is hot hot hot for summer, and if you aren’t quite brave enough to add it into your wardrobe- add a touch of neon to your nails! Sephora is offering a bunch of different brands of neon polish and this is the one I purchased by Nails Inc.
(Sorry for the bad photo from my phone!)
So far I love it, it goes on a little thin but dies fairly quickly. I’d recommend doing 2 to 3 coats and adding a top coat to make it extra shiny. I’ve seen that China Glaze has some neon shades too, but I haven’t tried them yet. Have you hopped on the neon trend? Will you be rocking some neon nails?
For those who know me personally, know that I am a nail polish junkie. I have a basket full of probably 100+ polishes! I’ve tested pretty much every brand on the market, and recently I’ve found my new favorite drug store polish: Revlon ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel.
There are few drugstore brands that stay on longer than a day or two without chipping, but this one lives up to the name. It DOES NOT chip. The only thing it does is slightly fade around the end of your nail. For the small price of $7.99 you can get a polish to last up to 5 days (possibly longer, depending how gentle you are with your nails) with no chips. I recommend purchasing the base coat and the top coat to guarantee success.
Have you tried Revlon ColorStay Nail Enamel? If so, how did you like it?
So, for those of you who know me personally know that sometimes I have “moments of brilliance”. My latest idea I thought I would share with you, cause maybe you know if this exists out there or not.
A few months ago I went to a spa and got a manicure. I picked out this amazing matte coral color polish, and it was love at first sight! I even went out and bought lip gloss in the same tone! So when the manicure started to chip I was on the hunt for my new favorite nail polish. I thought it would be no big deal cause the place I went used the popular brand OPI. Boy was I wrong! I searched and I searched and I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE. (I think it was discontinued) So I went hunting in drug stores for a substitute and instead I now have about 4 shades of coral nail polish that I don’t even like that much- they’re just not the same!
( I got the one in the middle! )
Now for my MOMENT OF BRILLIANCE (get ready for it…): wouldn’t it be great if there was such a thing as a custom nail polish store? It would be just like picking out paint for your house, you pick a few swatches and with a mixer it stirs up all the right tones to get just the perfect color! Wouldn’t that be amazing? You could always find that ideal color to match your shoes, or your dress! If anyone has any suggestions of where I could do this- or if it exists on the the world wide web somewhere, let me know, I’ll SO be there!
