I am a huge fan of nail polish.  In fact, I think I may be an addict.  Even though my personal collection of polish is somewhere in the 250-300 bottle range, it seems that I  can always find new colors to add. 

The new LancomeAquatic Summer collection is no different.  Inspired by the seas in luxe vacation areas around the world, you’ll be transported!  These gorgeous nail lacquer shades in watery hues are perfect for Spring and Summer!

Get Gel Nails at Home with Sally Hansen Gel Polish

Let me tell you a little bit about my latest love, the Sally Hansen Gel Polish System.  It is easy to use.  It is hard to screw up.  It is fixable, if you do screw it up.  You don’t have to worry about sheet texture if you do your nails at night.  You know what I mean, if you do your nails and go to bed, chances are really good that you will wake up with the weave of your sheets embedded into your nails, no matter how careful you are.   Let me just say, right from the start:  OMG I love this stuff!
 
I have had a love affair with nail polish since I can remember, and lately, with all the wild glitters, finishes and colors, I’ve been in heaven.  But this, my friend, is no ordinary polish, and I might have to re-think what I want in a polish.  When you finish applying this Sally Hansen Gel Polish system, your nails are hard and ready to go!  In fact, I just finished mine, and am typing this review!
 

Manicure Monday – Essie Miss Fancy Pants

I decided to go with something kind of neutral this week.  With everything going on, I thought I'd go for something subtle and understated – Miss Fancy Pants by Essie

I will say, when I first received the Essie Miss Fancy Pants nail polish, I wasn't totally sure about it.  I thought it was a little too neutral for me.  However, now that I've worn it a few times, I find that I like the color more and more.  Very understated and elegant.

It takes two coats to get a good, solid coverage.  I didn't have any streaking or dragging issues, just light spots.

Fashion Friday: Nail Polish Trends

I love nail polish. Like, I seriously looooooove nail polish. Among the many reasons that I like it so much is that nail polish is an inexpensive, fairly quick pick me up. You can pick up a bottle for a couple dollars or you can go have a manicure an treat yourself to some pampering.  Here are some of the hottest nail polish trends for Fall 2011.

Blaze Nail Polish

Remember those Hypercolor clothes that changed color in the sun? Well, this nail polish does the same thing.  Some are a subtle change – pink to a darker pink or purple, while some shades change from blue to green! Cray-cray! $12.95 each.
