With the holiday season upon us, it’s nice to fancy up our fingernails and indulge in a manicure. If time allows, a trip to the nail salon or spa is great. It`s not always possible to carve out the time for such an indulgence.
Even if you have a steady hand and manage to paint your own nails, the challenge is to sit still for an hour and allow them to dry. If you`re like me, you pick up something and mess them up.
I recently tried a new nail polish called Vinylux; it’s a great alternative to Shellac. Shellac dries out my nails leaving them brittle and weak.
There is no need for a base coat, just 2 coats of colour followed by Vinylux top coat. They say it dries in 8 and a half minutes, and it`s true it does! There slogan is, change it when you want not because you have to, and it’s true too!
Before switching to Vinylux I used YSL La Laque Couture, it comes in a pretty bottle and I love the colours. I will still use YSL when getting a professional manicure and know I`ll sit still for the required time. But on a weekly basis Vinylux at $11.95 is a great alternative to Shellac or regular polish.
