An Ode to Nail Polish

I really love nail polish. I have less than 30 bottles, so I am no great collector or expert, but I have just enough to have variety and my favorite colors. I love them all. How can I explain it? Let me count the top 6 reasons I’ve gotten geeked about polish in the last three years:

6. I love the polish blogs, with their swatches, comparisons, and reviews. Really, these women have inspired and taught me almost everything I know today.

5. I feel like I can do them myself and have the same quality and speed of a manicurist. Usually they look good for three days, and if they last five then I’m really excited!

4. I love that I can wear a trend for less than $10. I don’t do all the nail trends, but I do rock the ones I like!

3. I love the colors. And I do try to match my polish to my outfit.

2. Though my husband teases me about always doing my nails, it’s that little extra something I do that makes me be my prettiest. And he notices.

And the number one reason I love nail polish is:

1. I look and feel polished. And by that I mean finished. When I am sitting in a meeting, when I am in the grocery store, when I am eating dinner, or at the gym, it gives me a little boost to see that my hands are looking their best.


  1. i love my nails clean and polished too...only that they need a break from polish when they start cracking..buhu.hehe.

  2. I hear you on that, Gizelle! Mine turn yellow and are splitting, so when that happens I take a break, but only for a couple of days!

  3. I totally agree! Especially with number 1. I feel so much better when my nails are done!

    I saw your comment on "Also Known As" and wanted to let you know you don't need a facebook to be indulge in the Zoya sale! The promotion ends today.

    You may already know, but I still felt the need to comment!

  4. Thanks Crissy! I found the code on Twitter and ordered my Zoyas!


Please add to the conversation! I'd love to hear from you.
