One of my Obsessions…

Most of my friends know I have a nail polish obsession.  It might be more of a compulsion, but that’s ok.  I used to bite my nails really bad when I was younger and it wasn’t until high school I finally stopped.  I noticed that if i had a manicure, my nails looked nice and biting them messed it up so I think this is where my obsession started.

I LOVE  LOVE LOVE having freshly painted nails.  I would spend my last $5 on a polish change.  I love dark polish, very rarely will you catch me wearing a light color and I would rather die than get a french manicure, that’s just me.  The problem with dark polish is that it chips so fast and since I do hair it really doesn’t last.  If I have a chipped nail I lose my mind!!  That’s all I can focus on!  I will pick off the rest of the polish if I am not near remover.  Yes OCD I know, but I can’t help it.  This is where my Chanel nail polish collection started.  It is oil based and lasts much longer than water based polishes.  So I spend the extra $$$.

 

I get so excited to find out a new Chanel color is coming out.  It’s a sickness.  I sometimes buy more than one if it’s a limited edition.

I about lost my mind when the OPI gels came out.  I can wear my dark nails with no chips for 2 1/2 weeks (that’s my average, 3 1/2 weeks is my longest)  This really changed my life.  They are dry the second they are done.  With regular polish I sit in the nail place forever cause I hate smudges.  And with a new baby, let’s be real I don’t have the time.  I LOVE the OPI gels.  My favorite hands down. (no pun intended)

I like to give my nails a break from the gels every 3 times so today I had to try the OPI Shattered.  Super fun!!  The combos are endless!

 

Here a few of my favorite colors:

Black: Chanel Black Satin

Dark: Chanel Vandetta or Blue Satin

Light: Allegoria

OPI gel: Licolon Park After Dark or Deep Sea

Fun Color: China Glaze Turned UP Turquise (neon) or Chanel Jade

Red:  Chanel Barcelona
