Nail Polish of the Year
OK, so I'm not really the type of person who always wears nail polish. But I like it. I just hate how it chips off in 20 minutes, or 20 seconds for that matter. Last Monday, I went with my sis and sis-in-law to get manicures in SLC that we'd scored off of Groupon. I chose a cool OPI gold color. It was scrunched before I even left. I was bugged, but determined to keep it on for a few days. And I did, but not without being mildly to moderately bugged. But then I went to Walgreens to pick up a prescription and perused the nail polishes. (I have a weakness for buying new ones, even though I have crappy nails that don't justify it.)
Anyway, I found Rimmel Nail Polish in Steel Grey. Went home that night and removed the old, applied the new. Since I did it at night, I fully expected to wake up with creases in my new nail polish from where the sheets or my hair caused creases. Oh wait, I don't really have much hair anymore. I digress....but that usually happens.
Let's just say I'm going on day 3 and there's nary a chip, crease, or sign of wear. I'm hooked. Who knew that a $3.99 bottle of nail polish could outshine the $8.99 ones? My nails feel great, they look great, and I'm going to have to buy some more Rimmel.
Note on the color: awesome opaque, mauvey grey. A little less grey than this picture portrays, but not much less. No shimmer or sheen. Just straight. If you purchase at Walgreens or Rite Aid, you can return it even after using, if you're not satisfied. Just thought I'd share the love....
