I aim to polish my nails every Sunday afternoon or evening with a fresh coat in preparation for the upcoming week, but I have to admit that I rarely stick to this routine. I’ve never liked the way my nails look bare and therefore always try to have them done, but don’t care much for the actual process of polishing my nails. I find it to be a tedious task as opposed to a relaxing one because I feel like there are other things I’d rather be doing with my time. You’d think I’d love this part of my beauty routine seeing as I do a pretty good job of not getting nail polish all over my cuticles. Recently I put away all of my pastel summer shades in exchange for my favorite autumnal shades- think deep burgundy, mauve and dark gray. You can certainly wear whatever color you want anytime of year, but I’m the kind of gal who coordinates her nail colors with the seasons. What can I say?
Two other nail polish brands I love are Kiko Milano Power Pro Nail Lacquer and Ulta Salon Formula Nail Lacquer. The quality of these two brands really surprised me when I used them for the first time given how affordable they are. Definitely give them a go, I promise you won’t be disappointed! You can pick up Kiko Milano nail polish at Garden State Plaza if you live in the tri-state area or shop them online. Don’t forget that the secret to a long-lasting, salon-quality manicure is a good base and top coat. Whether you’re using a Revlon or Deborah Lippmann nail polish, this important step is always necessary. For my base coat, I swear by Butter London Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat and top coat, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. You can’t go wrong 😉
