i often get asked about my nailpolish so i decided to post my favorites.
from left to right:
wet n wild's heatwave--i wore this a lot this summer because it's a fresh and fun color. it's a cross between orange-y/pinky/red. if i were back in art school, they would probably say it's an orange-red. or maybe it's a red-orange? idk...either way, it's beautiful.
sally hansen's gunmetal--perfect for keeping it simple and a little dark. i am a huge fan of gray/silver so i was immediately drawn to this color. i used to wear a ton of black polish but gray is the new black. get with it.
brucci's samantha's putty--definitely looks like the color of putty. i didn't know if i would like it at first but i have received so many compliments on it that i can't help but wear it a lot. it's totally neutral without being pale or pink.
n.y.c.'s starry silver glitter--this polish proves that i am really just 12 years old when we used to put glitter makeup on because it was cool. this nailpolish is a go to when i need something simple, easy and light colored. i picked this up originally for my mexico vacation and randomly still wear it.
sally hansen's the real teal--i never knew how much i loved teal until i bought this polish. and every time i wear it, i get tons of compliments. i was never a fan of such bright colors but i am a fan of this one.
i don't like to spend more than $2.99 on polish so i have to take extra precautions when i apply so that it won't chip. if you're worried about the same thing, then you might want to try bringing the brush with some polish to the very edge of your nail and even a little under the nail. it will help your polish last longer.
i would also suggest putting some chunks of garlic in a clear polish and using that as an undercoat. garlic will help your nails grow--believe me, i find myself cutting my nails once a week. i am also hoping that it will make the nail strong.
when i paint my nails too often, they often split and become weak. in between polish weeks, make sure you put some clear polish on your nails and let them relax. that will help your nails grow strong and regain its color. sometimes, painting and stripping the polish off can discolor your nails. clear (with some garlic) should help you restore your nails.
and finally--have fun with your color!
