My nail polish mystery…

photo Essie

I am trying to get to the mystery of my nail polishes!

For the past few months I have picked up some awesome shades at my fav’ stores at fabulous discount prices.Like you I was thrilled to get a deal!!!

I bring it to my nail tech,get a mani & pedi and the polish is off and chipping in a few days! It doesn’t matter what brand but they are big names.Never happened quite like this before.Very discouraging when you want to look polished and pretty.The deal here is that it does not happen to me for full price polishes.

Is this happening to you?

Is this a case of OLD and not so fresh batches of nail lacquer that gets shipped to stores for a quick sale?

I am beginning to think it is.

PS

I love ESSIE and a few other brands I have got a deal on too.Note this is no reflection on them. Just where and how I am buying the various polishes.

 

In love with Nail Lacquer?

Me too!

This  is an awesome polish from the hues to the way the lid is made that you apply the polish with. I am mesmerized by this polish. The best part it contains  only THE BEST. You know all the names we can’t even pronounce and that are bad for our health.SMITH & CULT

NO toluene,dibutyl phthalate,camphor,formaldehyde nor formaldehyde resin. I told you you can barely pronounce them!

This brand of polish was created by Dineh Mohajer whom I have had the pleasure of meeting at a beauty event.

She was the founder of the brand Hard Candy a fun brand that started all the cool packaging and a touch of whimsy.

I featured this brand on TV today. Thought you’d like to hear about this new brand.

OPI -Sky fall 10-2012Whose your go to brand?

A bright shade of nail polish with a cool name? Could it be a Maybelline mascara you used for years?  A yummy luxurious body or hand cream?

A foundation that covers all your flaws or perhaps it is a lipstick shade that just applying it on your lips sends you to the moon.

I’d love to know.
