All throughout high school and college, I would paint my nails myself except for things like Homecoming or a sorority date function. Truly, in high school, I didn't often have polish on my nails because we weren't allowed during cheerleading season. Then, in college, there wasn't really a great nail salon in the area. When I graduated, I had tried my first gel manicure and I have been hooked ever since. At first I would try and go every other month and just do my nails myself in between, but at this point, It's become an every two week thing for me.
Just like a daily stop at Starbucks, it adds up, but it really makes me feel put together. Not to mention, there is nothing that drives me crazier than a chip in my polish. I love that with gel, that just doesn't happen. Anyways, my two all time favorite polish colors are Bubble Bath and Big Apple Red. I always ask for 3 coats with Bubble Bath for a little more of an opaque pink. This is great because you can't see the grow out too badly. The red color is the best red. I feel like I've literally tried every red in the book and this one is just perfect.
What are your absolute favorite polish colors? Have a fabulous day!
