Yes, my love, if you would like to spend the afternoon swatching nail polishes, listening to The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (she’s like the Harper Lee of hip-hop, no?) and watching absolutely mind-numbing reality TV shows about SoCal real estate moguls on Bravo…by all means, GO FOR IT. I will not stop you.
In fact, I highly encourage this kind of behavior. Might I also suggest incorporating cookies and/or wine? Because one or both could take said afternoon to the next level.
The piercing pigments gracing my paws today hail from the House of Dior. Determined to spread sparkle and shine, the glitter-dusted Sparkling Shine Vernis polishes arrive this March, joining four color-coordinated glosses in the new revamped, revitalized Gloss Addict line.
One swipe of the fatty-bo-batty brush that comes with these covers an entire nail, so I finished my first of many manis today before the first Million Dollar Listing commercial break.
And speaking of breaks, these are tough as nails! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) I also wore them last week (tested on different fingers), and even without a base or top coat, they lasted five full days before I noticed any chipping.
Removal was a breeze, too. Knowing how difficult glittery polishes can be to remove, I busted out the big guns/tricks. After a long shower (the hot water seems to help loosen glitters), a few cotton squares and my trusty bottle of Sephora by OPI Nail Polish Remover took care of things in no time flat.
If Princess, the lightest shade, were a little less streaky, I’d call these purrrfect, but even so, I love ’em to bits.
I can’t wait to wear them with their coordinating glosses when the cherry blossoms bloom this spring.
