Lately I’ve been doing my Mom’s nails every week when I come to the house to hangout with my Dad while he’s recuperating. For the first time in a long time my Mom asked for a dark color. She has always worn pink or soft coral shades. Always. So when she coveted my sister’s deep burgundy nails I jumped at the chance to help her go vampy for a change. YAY!
This is Haute Chocolate in the Complete Salon Manicure line and it’s a very pretty shimmering burgundy shade that was super flattering on my Mom. Here’s the killer part about it, her manicure lasted for 2 WEEKS! Seriously. I didn’t have time to change her polish the last time I came to the house and when I saw her this past week her nails had minimal wear at the tips. Insane! This polish really is impressive to me.
I went in a different direction and went a bit light with Lavender Cloud. It’s a very soft lavender that can look white in the light. I love bright white/lavender polish because it has such a mod feeling to it. It’s also so fresh and clean to me and added a bit of brightness to my hands. Again, I have to say that the wear on this polish is phenomenal! I had to get used to the odd shaped brush but once I got a hang of it the coverage is smooth and only needs two coats. If you haven’t grabbed a bottle of this yet, you need to do so ASAP. Have you tried it? Thoughts?
