I’ve becoming more and more addicted to painting my nails. Honestly, it’s becoming a problem!!! haha
I used to absolutely HATE wearing polish. I didn’t mind the polish between hours 2 and 4 on the first day after a manicure. The tackiness gave me the creeps during the first hour and I was paranoid about chips after hour 4.
Don’t even get me started on the nail polish remover. BAH.
I picked up this little box of essie polishes from J. Crew a few weeks ago. I love that the size of the bottles are tiny; little samples!
I’ve been testing them all out (except for the Vermillionaire because I thought it was too cliche for October haha).
Here are pictures of all the polishes with the description from the box.
BBF Best Boyfriend- A classic creamy mauve
Mink Muffs- A smoky plush taupe
Demure Vixen- Iridescent cocoa mauve
And now, some of my other faves:
OPI- Lucky, Lucky Lavender
Essie- Chubby Cheeks
My steps for painting nails:
Remove previous polish
Wash hands again.
Wash hands again. (three times is really necessary)
Use a dab (super small amount) of lotion on hands.
Use left hand to paint right nails.
Use right hand to paint left nails.
Paint right nails again with second coat.
Paint left nails again with second coat.
Paint over all nails with OPI top coat.
DON’T MOVE FOREVER. Just kidding, but I really don’t move my fingers for like 20 minutes….
