What nail polish do you have on at the moment?

Like Tree7065Likes

I have a question for the nail fans here...I don't know too much about my nails, having never paid much attention to them, but I was using Seche Vite and OPI chip skip on them for a bit, with OPI or China Glaze polishes, then they all broke and chipped ;p so now I have *really* short, chipped, peeling nails. I have been applying grapeseed oil and olive oil like mad, and moisturising like crazy, but it doesn't seem to be helping...

So i am thinking to have gel nails applied until after December, just to give them a chance to grow, and so i can look reasonable at all the social functions i have to attend for Christmas... Any advice, warnings, or encouragements to give in regard to gel nails? Any help would be appreciated...TIA!

They should do all gel - using the white and blue gel container with the pink goop inside - its way less chemicals, and it's not mixed with acetone. Although you do put your hands in a UV curer.

They're more expensive, but they last longer. I get mine done every 3 to 4 weeks. There isn't a noticeable fill line, and they don't yellow, dry out, and peel. Don't do acrylics. Gels are way better.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Did another stamping manicure. I'm going to cold, possibly snowy Wisconsin in one week so I did a snowflake design. Stamping is getting really easy now that I have done it a couple of times. I haven't cleaned it up yet.

You're also making me want to pull out the stamps and practice again. It's been awhile.

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

i have on china glaze loft-y ambitions on my toes and ulta dance teal dawn on my nails. it's not my usual thing to do a non-traditional color on my nails but i gotta admit it's striking and i love it.

I took Essie Dive Bar off yesterday and decided to file my nails down all the way with my crystal file. I think I'm going to file every day this month with the crystal file and see if that helps the peeling. I've noticed that I don't moisturize as much when I have polish on, maybe twice a day if I'm lucky. If there's no polish I'll moisturize 3-4 times a day. I need to work on that.

I haven't done french tips in years (just too frustrating to do with shaky hands) but I was bored with all my polish so that's what I ended up doing. From far away they don't look like a drunken pirate with a hook did them. : )

Nice job, Jeep!

Pretty colors, RCC and LML!

I am infatuated with polish that contains real gold. I was looking at the OPI Bond Collection and saw their version. So pretty.

My nails are naked. I broke two yesterday, so I cut them all short. I want them to grow out so I can do a snowflake manicure.
