There are a few things in the world that I absolutely love: my family, British Cadbury, a pair of sexy heels, and nail polish – preferably one that doesn’t chip off after two days – among other things, of course.
Now, nail polish for me has always been an issue. Whether I’ve given myself a manicure at home or have gone to the salon, I always end up chipping my nails on the second day, which is why I’m usually changing my nail polish every other day.
So you can imagine my surprise when I came across the CND VINYLUX System at my local beauty store. It’s a nail polish system (similar to Shellac) that lasts longer and stays chip-free for up to 7 days. That’s one whole week of not having to change your nail polish! What’s incredible about this system is that there’s no need for ten thousand different base coats and polishes. All you need is the colour of your choice (they have a great selection) and their Weekly Topcoat that goes with it. It’s their specially formulated topcoat that gives you your chip-free nails for a week. No need to go to the salon anymore with these babies!
The best part of my find was the actual colour of the polish itself. As a woman of colour, finding the perfect nude nail polish is harder than you think. They’re often either too pink or too brown, never just right for my skin tone. That was until I found the colour ‘Powder My Nose’. Heaven sent it was! It’s one of those nudes that’s perfect for all seasons. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about…
