So I have a few staples in my life…. white jeans, Frye boots, big earrings and nail polish. I hate not having my nails done. I’ve been doing my nails for as long as I can remember. And I have the nail polish collection to prove it! Every season I choose my favorites. Some are regulars, some are new and fabulous. Seeing as it is a new season, I thought I’d share with you my favorite nail colors for fall.
All of these items are available online and I have used affiliate links for your shopping convenience.
First of all, let me tell you that I have found the most fabulous alternative to gel nails/gel lacquer EVER! I love the look of a salon gel polish, but it totally wrecks my nails for weeks after. And my nails grow really fast so it only lasts a week anyway. Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro is AWESOME! It lasted a full 10 days with no chipping! When I first bought it, I was really nervous because it is pricey, but now I say it is totally worth it.
Who loves a good glitter polish? I always found that glitter polish either doesn’t have all that much glitter in it, or it is rough after it is dry. I finally found one that isn’t rough to the touch, that covers really well and comes off fairly easily with polish remover. And it’s in rose gold!!!
Of course, I had to have one light color, for when I don’t want to make waves. Or draw attention to how ragged my cuticles have become. HA! Smith and Cult nail polish is a new one for me. But is stays on well with a heavy, duty topcoat. And the names are fun!
My biggest annoyance with nail polish is that no matter what I do, it chips. Usually a day or two after I put it on. And I find it annoying. But now I have found the BEST top coat! Leave it to OPI to create it! It is OPI Plumping Top Coat and it is fantastic. It really does plump up, making your nails look like you have gel on them and it is very hard wearing. I paired it with the Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro and it lasted for 10 day with NO CHIPS! Seriously. And I didn’t reapply. No that is seriously strong stuff!
