Change your Palette 

A few weeks ago I wandered into my local Walgreens in search of a change. The high temperatures this Spring/Summer cooked my existing polishes at home and the remainder were around four years old so I did a major purge (most nail colors should be tossed every two years or when they start to separate). It felt nice to start fresh and be intentional with what I had in my collection.

Look For A Variety of Classic and Bold

Above is a snap shot of what I ended up with -- I love that all the colors flow well and are neutral enough to go from Thanksgiving through Valentine's Day without getting too boring. I stuck with Essie because they were doing a buy two get one free promo. For a guide on our favorite healthy polishes or local salons read more in our blog from last spring.

Polish Tips:

  1. Start with the Basics: Invest in 2-3 go to shades that stretch from neutral to bold

  2. Test Colors on Your Nails Before Buying: Shades in the bottle look much different than in real life. Make sure you test that it sits well with your skin undertone.

  3. Invest in a Good Base Coat

  4. Get a Healthy Remover 

Stay Stylish,
