I absolutely love love love short well-manicured fingernails with fresh bright polish. OPI nail polish is my favorite because of the cool names like “I’m Really Not a Waitress,” but I have found the Orly brand at Sally’s to be very durable and a few bucks less. My favorite color is Bus Stop Crimson. I trim my cuticles, buff my nails, and file my nails short so that they are all the same length before I paint my nails. Remember to start with a good basecoat and always use a fast drying top coat. My absolute favorite topcoat is SecheVite Dry Fast Top Coat which can also be found at Sally’s. It’s about $7, but worth every penny. You can paint your fingernails before bed, apply the topcoat, and then go to bed. Your nails will dry super fast and you won’t end up with blanket marks on your nails. It also makes your polish last longer. Plus, painted nails make my hands less dry. I don’t know why, but it’s true.
What are some of your favorite things?
