After seeing Judy’s obsession with nail polish, I decided to go get some (literally I had no nail polishes).
A few of my friends, Emmy and Casey, are also obsessed with nail polish and do their own nails. I have been getting my nails done professionally for a long time, but recently I’ve been trying to do my own nails to save some money. It’s actually sort of fun!
First off, I needed a good nail polish remover. I had been using a non-acetone one but it took forever for me to get my nail polish off. So, I asked Emily and she told me to get the 100% Acetone one from Duane Reade. I must say it works great! I have no idea if acetone is horrible for you, but it really does work. Next, when I was at Barney’s getting my mini-facial, I decided to go to the Chanel counter and ended up getting 2 nail polishes. I was inspired by Sabrina’s swatches on thebeautylookbook.com. I bought Peridot and Jade Rose. I love Peridot – it’s super gold, shiny and beautiful. Just like the swatch. I didn’t love the Jade Rose as much. It was hard for me to put on and was a little streaky. It was a little too pink for my taste as well. So, I went out and bought the OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy which I really like. It goes on smoother. I also bought the Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat. I’m not using a base coat – is that bad? I want to buy more colors, but every time I look online or go to the store I get overwhelmed.
