I always, ALWAYS have to have fresh nails.

One chip of the polish and it’s time for a change (ocd much?). I don’t get gels or acrylics and I do my own mani/pedi, as far as cutting and filing my nails go (NEVER cut your cuticles – once you start, you’ll always have to cut them and they’re actually there to protect your nail bed, not to chop off).

I go to the nail salon about 1-2 x’s per week for a $5 polish change. For me, it’s quick and it’s worth it. It saves me time (unless I’m on vacay or at the spa, manicures and pedicures take WAY too long and I’m too ocd about the way they file).

Yeah, there are always the new trending colors that I try, but these are my staples – my favorite nail polish colors for every occasion.

Freshly painted nails are the easiest and most no-brainer way to look polished, put together and like you at least give a slight percentage of a f*ck.

The one thing that everyone who knows me can all agree upon – they’ve never seen me without… My sanity? Ha! Makeup? lol. Nail Polish? NEVER.

It’s just my thing. I got it from my Mom. To this day, even after all she is going through, I have yet to ever see my Mom without her red nail polish and perfectly manicured nails (all of which, she does herself).

FAVORITE NAIL POLISH COLORS FOR EVERY OCCASION

HERE ARE MY FAVORITE NAIL POLISH COLORS:

ALPINE SNOW BY OPI

This is my HG color that I am ALWAYS wearing. If I ever wear anything other than this, it’s only a few times out of the year. Alpine Snow is my go-to. It goes with everything and I could never live without it. It’s the most PERFECT white and it doesn’t need a million coats to look opaque.

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON BY DEBORAH LIPPMANN

 I opt for this shade when I don’t want to do black, but I still want something dark, vampy and me-owww.

HOLLYWOOD ENDING BY ORLY

This is my go-to pedi color. I always wear the OPI Alpine Snow on my hands and this shade on my toes. It’s super pigmented and the perfect flirty, off-white with a hint of ballerina pink.

BLUE MING BY COLOR CLUB

Get ready for the compliments to come rolling in. This is THE ULTIMATE Tiffany, teal-y blue and it’s a favorite of mine to wear on vacation. This polish makes a STATEMENT and I love pairing with a spray tan, a red lip, a little mascara, big, messy tousled hair and sky-high heels. YES PLZ.

BLACK ONYX BY OPI

When I want to go for a sleek, edgy look, this is it. I love wearing it with an all black outfit, nude lips and sleek/shiny/straight hair or a top knot.

BIG APPLE RED BY OPI

When my Persian side comes out and I need a SMOKIN HOT RED nail. There’s a reason why time and time again, this has been voted the best red out there. It’s the Ruby Woo of nail polishes and my favorite for a date night in the city.

What are your favorite nail polish colors?

Wishing all of my US friends a very happy & safe 4th of July!

Well Natasha, since I really do come here most days to read your blog, I decided to treat myself to Blue Ming…. Cause I have a Ruby Woo lipstick and although very fair I can do a red lip! I think this is a stunning nail colour, and although completely out of my usual choices ( neutrals) I really want to wear it!

I’ve been buying myself lots of treats lately… A cute leather backpack for work stuff, new shoes, clothes and sunglasses 💕 Had a margarita after work on Friday with some girlfriends…
It’s amazing how good it feels to love and spoil yourself. I am working out again ( went through a stage where I just couldn’t – just wanted to eat and sleep).

It’s awesome how a little thing like a bottle of nail polish can make you feel soooooo goooooooood.
I’m loving the self – spoiling though. Little things really can be the big things in life. I think the mail guy at the post office has noticed too – he commented “more online shopping!” When I went to pick up another parcel. I just smiled.

I know I can pull off this Blue Ming though – will look beautiful in springtime which is fast approaching 🙂

Thanks for sharing! 💄💅🏻

Hi Lorel! You are going to LOVE the Blue Ming! 🙂 I’m glad that you’re treating yourself! Like you said, it doesn’t have to be anything big or grandiose to have an impact. I’m so happy for you! You deserve it! Email me a photo of the nail polish on you! Can’t wait to see 🙂 xxxx
