Why do we love it so much? Guys must scratch their heads. So do I!
But we do.
So, here are my experiences. My lifestyle is two littles. 'Nuf said.
Want to try lots of pastels, because I always have shrinkage, so I figure that would camouflage it! But I love close to nude colors because when I mess up, it doesn't show. If I use something like red, they don't look for good until a day has gone by and the polish is peeled off my skin. Also, I have small nail beds, so nudes don't help them look bigger!
I hated white.
Everyone raves about CND. The base coat didn't have great shelf life I guess. It made bubbly nails after about 6 months! Got very dried and sticky.
Want to try Sally Girl. Sally Hansen insta-dri
