Love My Nail Polish

February 20, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
Dating back to when I was just a kid, I have always loved getting a good manicure and pedicure. The whole process is fun, exciting, and has the ability to leave you feeling like a million bucks!  Ever since I got engaged on 9/10/11, getting a mani has been my weekly luxury that I cannot live without. It makes me feel refreshed, delicate, and oh so pretty. When my nails are chipped or uneven, I’m self conscious of my dowdy look, frustrated that I wasn’t able to make time to get my nails done, and worst of all, I’m embarrassed!!  That’s why I do go every Friday – rain or shine – because it just makes me feel better.Now, I wish I could say that I do my own nails but that would be a lie.  Ironically, I own about 50 nail polish colors, but I am not good at doing them myself.  I don’t have the artistic ability and frankly, I don’t have the patience either. What I will do though, is take my favorite colors to the salon and have my manicurist use the polish on me that I’ve brought. It’s a win win – because while I am not keen on doing my nails on my own, I never mind touching them up throughout the week if need be.
The reason for this post to showcase my favorite nail polish colors of all time!!  One of my most favorite things about getting a manicure or pedicure is picking out the polish color!  While I do tend to always have a difficult time picking out the perfect color, I typically go for something that I’ve tried before, know I love, and am confident will leave me happy throughout the week. On my nails and hands, nothing iridescent or heavily sparkled looks that great but I do love to go for bright solid colors that make a statement.

What’s my favorite top-coat you ask? Well, that’s a no brainer: Seche Vite Dry Fast. It’s the best (need I say more)

What are your favorite go-to nail polish colors? I would LOVE to know!!!
