Paint The Town

When it comes to painting my nails I am an extreme perfectionist.  My nails need to be perfectly shaped, cuticles pushed back and the polish must look like it was airbrushed on.  This whole ordeal takes me well over an hour, so naturally I put off redoing my nails until I can't stand the chipped up messes anymore.  I have always tended to go for quirky, offbeat hues that make a statement, so chips stand out even more.  While I am not willing to give up my favorite paints for good, I am up for sending my nails a curve ball.  Neutrals and greys may seem boring and dull, but they are the perfect backdrop for sparkling rings and dazzling bracelets.

I am still loving colored nails as well.  Fall is darker so I like to balance it out with pastel nails that look like candy.

And of course I LOVE sparkly nails.  No need for glittering jewelry when your fingers are this fancy.

For a cheap polish fix, check out Sinful Colors, available at Walgreens for $1.99 a bottle.  They have a huge color selection and are great quality for the price.  I recommend two coats, the colors tend to be on the sheer side.


  1. I LOVE the essie Chinchilly. Have used it a few times now! Great Picks!


  2. Me too, it goes with everything.


Share the love, it will make me smile.
