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
OPI gel: Licolon Park After Dark or Deep Sea
Fun Color: China Glaze Turned UP Turquise (neon) or Chanel Jade
Red: Chanel Barcelona
