From The Makeup Drawer | Nails
I'm so lazy when it comes to painting my nails. I used to do it all the time, mostly when I lived at home, the days when I didn't have to wash up and clean every day! Mr C bought a gel nail kit for me last Christmas as he knows how pleased I am with the longevity of them but I still have quite a few regular polishes that I need to use so that they don't go to waste!
I do love a nails inc polish, I don't think that I have ever purchased one from a store, I'm a cheapskate and wait to get them free (well, kind of!) when I buy magazines. These are definitely my winter polishes, in the summer I prefer to opt for a French polish or pinks and reds.
These are some of my least favourites. I know a lot of people rave about the Essie polishes but for me they didn't really work. The application was excellent, nice and smooth, two coats and I was done but after taking the red one off I noticed that my nails were quite stained even with a base coat one, a real disappointment for me.
These items are ones that I use when I'm doing my nails. The nails polish remover pads are the best ones I've tried, they don't leave my nails feeling dry and are nice and compact for when I'm going away for a weekend. The Sally Hansen base and top coat is the only one I will use and have done for many years, one coat makes my polish last for around 5-6 days, as long as I remember to wear my marigolds!
