My New (well not so new) Obsession...NAILS

Lately I've discovered some blogs dedicated just to nails and all the gorgeous pictures have totally inspired me to rekindle my love affair with pretty nail polish. When I was in my senior year of high school, I discovered OPI and China Glaze and was totally obsessed. I was shocked when I found my old stash of 50+ shades of these brands that were 6 or 7 years old!! What a waste... Some were still good though. So I've gotten into taking care of my nails again. No more acrylics for me. I've always had a nervous habit of picking at my cuticles (gross, I know) and having acrylic nails were the only thing that prevented me from being able to do that. So for a few months now, I've left my nervous habit behind and am taking really good care of my nails. Using all the fun colors is motivation to keep them looking nice too. You've probably noticed in my videos I like to use fun and crazy colored nail polish, but I figured that it would be a fun little addition to my blog to post pictures of the colors I use.

nails of the day...(NOTD) OPI's "Do You Lilac It?"

I also used my new Seche Base (the white ridge filling one) and the Seche Vite topcoat.

  4. Just put some nail polish thinner into old nail polish and they will be as good as new. They never expire, just dry up a bit! Thinner is a polish saver and must have!

    Also, very nice color :)

  9. try Seche Restore--it's the best polish thinner I've ever tried. Several drops of it in any of your old polishes and I'm betting it'll bring them back to new.

  11. i have that shade, posted it long ago on my blog.
    my favorite purple thus far.

    i totally get what you mean about acrylics. i personally stop using them to cut down on prices and didnt like it when my real nail will grow out.
    besides, i like changing my nail shade once or several times of week...
