It’s a curse, I swear. At least that’s what I tell my mom as she rolls her eyes when I come home from the store with a new bottle of nail polish. I can never, I repeat never, leave a store without perusing the beauty section to select my latest addition to my collection. It’s an addiction that I need no intervention for. An even bigger problem that I face is selecting the nail polish to wear. I take into account the season, the weather, my mood, my outfits for the week, etc. while I sort through my immense collection (not an easy task). Rarely do I ever go to a salon for a mani/pedi. I go by the words of the once-great Amanda Bynes in What a Girl Wants (2003): “Mom says if you can walk on a beach and you have a steady hand with nail polish… there’s no reason to ever pay for a pedicure.” I prefer to spend my money elsewhere than on something that will chip away the first time I pick up my purse (the ultimate white girl problem). I decided to showcase just a few favorite colors of my of my collection for my first post.
(1) Lily by Revlon Top Speed – The perfect subtle spring pastel. (2) Iconic by Revlon – Dark enough to reflect my gloomy moods but chicer than straight black. (3) Buttercup by Revlon Color Stay – Again, a wonderful spring color, especially to pair with that perfect Easter dress. (4) Blue My Mind by H&M – I literally fell in love with this bright blue. I find it’s the cheaper version of YSL’s Bleau Majorelle. (5) Cute as a Button by Essie – A bright, summery mix of coral and pink. (6) Mint Candy Apple by Essie – A mix of mint and Tiffany blue…need I say more? (7) Bronze Beauty by Cover Girl – Just a hint of sparkle when you need it.
