Polished

Nude PolishDuring this moment in my life, I have discovered that nothing turns a stressful day around, or at least puts a hold on the stress, quite like a manicure and pedicure – or least a good nail polish! Who am I kidding? I have always loved it … I’m the girl who had my husband touch up my toenail polish while in labor with my first child. And then wised up enough to get a pedicure the day before my second child was born. There is something so soothing about the scrub of the heels or soaking of the fingers. The pampering of a mani-pedi is like floating on clouds for an hour … I would do that every day if I could.

I never choose red tones, ever. I think I chose a red wine shade on my toes for Christmas once, maybe. Not sure why, but I really cannot deal with the color red for lips or nails (perhaps it can be attributed to my conservative Southern upbringing). My favorite color in the world is grey – don’t judge me. But I can’t wear grey on my nails all the time … actually I tend to make color choices based on my mood – anything from dark tones to pale nudes. And I’m old school – I don’t do the UV gel thing. I live in Haiti y’all – it is hard enough to get a mani-pedi, much less a fancy gel polish and it doesn’t last long enough. So, without further rambling …

here are some of my favorite (old-school) nail-polishes:
