Polished: OPI Thanks a Windmillion

I’m not very good at subtle nail polish. I never get a french manicure – too stuffy for me – and I never really got into the habit of using pale pink or nude polish. My nails are either bare, sporting a coat of clear polish, or covered in a great color. I think of nail polish as an accessory – why be boring?!

My allegiance to bright polishes was swayed when I tried Thanks a Windmillion from OPI’s Holland collection. This pale sage green is gorgeous, and looks extra interesting when paired with a matte top coat. I wore this religiously all spring, and am looking forward to bringing it back in the fall to contrast all of my go-to dark colors.

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Giveaway!

You know the old saying that when you love something, you should set it free? Well, I’m no fool. When I find something I adore and can’t live without, I don’t part with it. I get the hook up for my friends, so they can share my joy.

This week, I’m partnering with Nailene and giving THREE lucky ladies the opportunity to try (and fall in love with) SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish, which I raved about last week. Side note: it’s been a week and my mani looks exactly the same as day 1 – no chips and still high watt shine. (more…)

SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit Review

So when Nailene offered me their SensatioNail Invincible Gel Polish Starter Kit to try, I jumped at the opportunity.

Yesterday, I tested the system – with gorgeous results. In less time than it typically takes for me to paint my nails and wait for them to dry, I gave myself a SensatioNail manicure and pedicure with mirror-like shine that promises to last 2 weeks with no chipping. (more…)

Polished: Purple Posy by Sally Hansen

Designer Prabal Gurung collaborated with Sally Hansen to create three nail polish colors this spring, and Purple Posy was one of them. This color is a violet creme color, and it is unlike anything I have seen around. I had to have it!

I must admit that I was skeptical, because Sally Hansen products don’t always have the best staying power. I took a risk because it is a fresh color, and I adore Prabal Gurung’s designs – he can do no wrong! (more…)
