THE LADY LAVENDER

Nail Neutrals

Ashley CraigComment

Nail polish is seriously such an addiction... well mine at least. I probably have more nail polish than the actual nail salon!  BUT I really do use all of my polishes since I change my nail color at least twice a week!

My current nail color obsession is neutrals, and by neutrals I mean grey. I have learned that when polishing my nails  light pink/nude colors it doesn't look great since I am pale. SO basically it looks like I am not even wearing nail polish haha. That is why I decided that the light grey/taupe colors would look great while working well with my skin tone. 

The colors I am loving right now are from the OPI Brazil collection;  Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, Taupe-less Beach, and I Sao Paulo Over There 

Here are a few tips I use when painting my nails! 

1. When using a light color, do not use a clear base coat, its just extra polish that will make them chip sooner. 

2. When using a dark nail polish, DO use a base coat or else the color will stain the natural nail. (The nails might chip sooner, but better to have healthy nails!)

3. Matte finish top coat is my new fave, but seriously it chips so quickly :(  So I use a regular clear top coat before the matte coat, which makes the polish last longer. 

Have fun and get to polishing:) Xoxo
