Hi Ladies

 

Im exploring my feminine side and was considering getting a mani.  Theres so many styles out there that are just gorgeous, but I cant decide which to go with for my first try.  Could anyone help with any suggestions?

A good starting place is a nice nude. Classy, looks good with everything, understated. My favorite nude would either be OPI Barefoot in Barcelona or Essie Eternal Optimist.

If you want to go bold, you can't go wrong with a classic pin-up red

 

Essie: First Dance/ Aperitif

Zoya: Kristi/ Sookie

Butter London: Pillar Box Red/ Come To Bed Red

 

I'm a red nail-a-holic & those are a few I've been gravitating towards lately.

Glitters Glitters Glitters! Glittery nail polish is gorgeous and perfect for the holidays! I love both small flake and chunky flakes, any color looks great with glitters :D

If you want some really detailed designs/prints you could try the nail polish strips from Sally Hansen or Incoco. There's a little learning curve in putting them on the best way, but once they're on they wear really well & are super easy to remove with just a little polish remover. I think you can get them at any drugstore/target/etc.

I disagree...I found them to be a PITA to get off every time I used them!! So now I avoid them like the plague. I'd rather have to redo my polish in the middle of the week than try to get those crap pieces off!!
