Fresh nails are A MUST.
There’s something about chipped nails that just weirds me out. I don’t know why. It’s just a thing.
Getting your nails done doesn’t have to be a chore, time consuming, or something you need to scratch off your to-do list. You can try to make it fun, productive, or into a kill-two-birds-with-one-stone situation.
FOR EXAMPLE…get a manicure with a girlfriend to catch up. Or find a salon that has WiFi ( YES I DO THIS ) & work while getting a pedicure. I go once per month with The Nanz to catch up. We love it.
To be honest, we get ‘paint jobs’ or ‘polish changes.’ A manicure usually takes too long so I just pay like $5 bucks to have them file my nails & paint them! Also, tipping is important— 20% is key, in my opinion.
Either way, you should definitely have your list of GO-TO polish colors. You can keep your eye out for new trending colors, but sometimes the staples are the easiest & look the best.
Here are our favorites:
Just really the PERFECT white. White is a staple color for Summer. Lately it’s The Nanz’s first color pick too, so we’ve been matching!
This color goes with anything. You should definitely choose it during winter months, or if you have a night out on the town planned. Opting for darker colors during summer is different, & being unique is ALWAYS a good thing.
Ideal for spring. Wear it when you’re feeling girly & flirty. It’s an off-white, pinkish color which actually goes well with a lot of outfits. This is kind of my go-to.
Sometimes you just need a good, solid, HOT HOT HOT RED nail. This color is great for holiday parties, or even Summer & Spring months. Is it weird that I feel like HOT red is great for nights in the city?
Another off-white shade, this color is great for work because it’s surprisingly super calming. Is that weird? I swear by it. You’ll be typing away & catch a calming blue hue in your peripheral. It’s pretty if you’re engaged too ( weird, but it flatters a diamond ).
If you’re going for an edgy look, Black Onyx is YES PLZ. Wear it with all black & a touch of leather or high boots, chic. Very Paris-vibey.
What’s your ride or die polish?
