Jesse’s Girl JulieG Frosted Gum Drops

Disclaimer: Products purchased by me I’m definitely into the texture craze. I was worried that not wearing a top coat meant texture polishes would chip quicker and weaken my nails (top coat always makes ’em tougher!). But that’s not the case.

Chick Nail Polish New Colors

Quite possibly one of the cutest nail polish company logos around belongs to Chick Nail Polish. I love that little birdie! The cute logo matches everything else that’s good about this up-and-coming polish brand. It’s Big 3 Free (but also formaldehyde, DBP and toluene free) and has a great color selection that bears fun and thematic names like Hen House and …

New Sally Hansen Lustre Shine

I love that the nail industry is embracing the nail community’s love of duochrome/multichromal nail polish by giving us collections devoted to the two-tone goodness, and they’ve definitely offered us some great polishes. But I’m a little disappointed at the same types of duos each brand is putting out. I appreciate that all the brands jump …
