When I think about my outfit, I automatically think: “Which color nail polish should I use to match??” Nowadays’, MANY people think this way too! Nail Polish has always been popular, but in the last few years, at least for me, it’s become part of my routine when dressing up, dressing down or just experimenting with new colors. Here are 5 reasons why I am obsessed with Nail Polish!

Reason 1

Whether I am going to get a manicure or pedicure at a beauty salon or doing it myself at home, it always makes me feel put together. There is just something about having perfectly painted nails and toes. It brightens up anyone’s day because it’s that pop of color that everyone needs to see. It’s always nice when someone gives you a compliment on it too!

Reason 2

All of the cute names that the different nail polish brands have for their colors are always fun to say out loud and think about. ” Can you please paint my nails in Essie’s Mint Candy Apple? OR in OPI’s Cajun Shrimp?” I am always fascinated with the names the companies come up with for their colors… Especially their themed colors. For instance, OPI used the movie Burlesque as their muse which ended up being some very awesome sparkly colors! I could not pass those up! Neither could other buyers since they were practically sold out when I went to buy them!

Reason 3

Whenever a Holiday comes along, there is always a color to associate it with. The colors can be displayed on our nails which is just too much fun! I did my nail’s above for St. Patrick’s day using Essie’s Pretty Edgy and a quick sparkle on top for pizzazz. You could do the same for any holiday! Take Halloween for example… Any dark color would do, ie: black, red, orange etc… Your choices are endless!

Reason 4

The innovation’s that creators are making in the nail polish world is wonderful for the busiest of people. Being able to have your nails done and walk out seconds after they’re done is an innovation that I like very much. I had the pleasure of trying the OPI UV gel’s which made my manicure experience all the better. I always hate having to sit under the fans after my mani or pedi just waiting for them to dry. With the OPI gels, you’re out the door immediately and they stay on for about two weeks! If you look below, those are OPI gel nails in Black Cherry Chutney. It’s actually my all time favorite color FYI!

Reason 5

IT’S FUN! Getting your nails done with friends or by yourself is never not fun. The beauty salon is always going to have your favorite colors and they are always going to have new colors that you’re going to want to try out! They do what you want them to do and how you like it. Learning how to do your own manicures and pedicures the way you want it is always great too. This is what I have been doing for a while now since I cannot afford the many times that I would LOVE to go and get my nails done. For me, keeping my nails short allows me to easily change colors and have a polished look all the time. Everyone needs to splurge sometimes though.
