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.
