Taking a break….

….from no-chip polish, that is. 

As practical as no-chip manicures seem to be, they completely eliminate the absolute FUN of manicures!!!!

I need to go back to the “convenience” of changing my polish and nail designs at least two or three times a week.  No-chip is just way too much maintenance for that scenario.  I know, I know…. people LOVE no-chip!  Some anyway….

Lots of people complain that it thins their nails, removal is a burden…. it’s more expensive…. etc., etc… But, of course, it has supporters too: long-wearing, super shiny, strengthens nails, less maintenance, non-smudging immediately after service, manicure that stands up to nail abuse, lol. 

It would be practical for me, while I dabble in acetone every day, to have a no-chip.  BUT IT’S NOT AS MUCH FUN!!! I promise.

So back to regular polish right now. Smile

Bond…James Bond

Excitement about OPI’s new Bond Collection “Skyfall 007”!!

I finally picked up the collection over the weekend.  The colors are definitely season appropriate.

I LOVE Bond movies. And really, I love the old black and white ones. Pierce Brosnan was a great Bond…. so this manicure will be my mini- ode to him. LOL.  But my FAVORITE will always be Sean Connery.

The glitter is so dense, it looks like textured gold foil on my nails.  It’s a dark amber gold, so even though it’s blingy, it seems tamer.  Like understated sophistication.

This will be perfect for Christmastime manicures.  I can’t wait.  Smile
