If you know me, you know that my nails are always painted, and when picking shades, I am no way conservative about it. Last week when I went in for my weekly manicure, I was determined to have electric red on my nails. When I see girls with red nails, I feel like their hands always look pretty. I can't explain it. Their hands look dainty and clean and they look totally put together. Anyways, I picked out the perfect shade of red that I was sure would do just the trick. My manicurist looked at me with a surprised look and said, "Red?" I tried to explain my theory how red polish makes for pretty hands. She wasn't buying it and said, "There is nothing conservative about you." So, long story short, I left with glitter nails.
I tend to always use Zoya polish because it's formaldehyde free, and I do think it lasts longer than other brands that I have tried. I'm not going to go through the time and effort of a manicure that is just going to mess up that next day, right? Also, they have the BEST colors, especially their Fall collection. I'm loving the greens, grays, and even glitter! Below are a few of my favorites from Zoya's Fall 2012 collection.
