Purple Notes

Purple Nails

This is a different kind of nail polish review.  I painted my nails a week ago with Sally Hansen’s “Complete Salon Manicure,” color: Grape Gatsby (Lol).  I wash my hands  A LOT and most brands chip within a few days of applying the polish.  It doesn’t matter if I have a base coat, top coat, winter coat – whatever.  It’s chipping and doesn’t look great.  I got this brand as a gift and decided to test it out.  This is one week after how much my hands are in water.  There is some chipping but it’s not bad at all.  I think I will buy this brand in a few more colors since it actually lasts through the war of life.

What is your go-to brand?

White Nails?

I have seen some women with white nail polish and wanted to try it on myself.  It was actually hard to find a bottle of white polish that didn’t have a pink base.  I like the outcome though.  It looks really bright paired with my summer complexion.  I think this would look good on anyone too.  I added an accent nail with silver glitter so it wouldn’t look boring.  This will look pretty done any time of year too.  I think in winter I will add the silver glitter to every nail.

This week – Accent Nails

I love experimenting with color combinations when painting my nails.  The expensive stuff doesn’t last any longer than the cheap stuff, so you may as well stock up on all your favorite colors in a cheaper brand.  I vary between Sinful Colors retailing about $1.99 a bottle or Wet’n’Wild which is around $1 a bottle.  Currently, I’m wearing a gray/blue color with a sparkly pink accent nail.  It’s easy, cute and can look dressed up or casual.  I saw these two colors and couldn’t resist.

What are you doing this week on your nails?
