Ok, so recently I became increasingly curious about high end nail polishes. I wanted to see what all of the hype was about. Is it really worth the $18 to $25 a bottle? I don’t know about all that, the verdict is still out on that one. About a month ago I bought a Chanel polish in the color Black Pearl and although I absoutely love the color I didn’t find that the polish had any longer wear than an OPI or even Rimmel polish. As well, I recently bought the Deborah Lippman nail polish in the color Wicked Game and although I absolutely ADORE the color, I don’t think I would necessarily say that these high end polishes last any longer than OPI or some other drugstore brands. I rarely ever get my nails done anymore as I’d rather spend money on makeup or clothes so I justified these expensive polish purchases to this fact.
Will I continue to buy high end polishes? Probably but I have made it a point to buy colors that are unique. So my recent love is Deborah Lippmans Wicked Game polish. This polish is amazing, it’s this multidimensional color that looks like a purple, grey or even green depending on how the light shines on it. Amazing. I’ve also decided to buy polishes going forward that are 3Free – Free of Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Fomaldehyde and Toulene. As well, beware, I have found Talc and Parabens in some polishes too. I’ve really started to read labels carefully. This is a personal choice of mine to try to lessen my chemical/toxins exposure.
In any event, check out this beautiful polish. I am in LOVE!
I have been stepping out of the box this year as I have been programmed to wear neutrals because I’ve worked in a corporate environment for a long time, but not anymore: ) So I am enjoying experimenting with fun colors! What are your favorite colors this season?
