I am a big fan of nail polish & having my nails painted, but am doing my same color & looking to branch out! Any favorites out there? Mine is OPI Lincoln Park After Dark or Essie Soul Mate - love me some deep/dark purples, especially in the fall/winter months!
Don’t judge but I have a top of L.A. polishes from the dollar store! Great selection, nice brush, easy application and with a good base and top coat they last long enough for me. Can also get at Walmart.
Check out veque.com, it's woman and Vietnamese-American owned, and based in Seattle, Washington. Their polishes are vegan, cruelty-free, and "9-free" - NO: Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, TPHP, or Shellac. I found this to be important to me after realizing a lot of drugstore polishes containing these chemicals gave me bad headaches, and my nails seem stronger after having banned not 9-free polishes from my routine.
Plus the colors and coverage are beautiful and long-lasting! I often find one coat will do the trick.
I’m a clear coat and buff kinda guy 😅🤣. But seriously, clear coats are great for strengthening nails, stopping breakage, and preserving natural oils. When you can work hard and keep your hands looking nice, it’s a “flex.” 😏
