MANICURE MONDAY: miracle gel in greyfitti


Obsessed may seem like a strong term to use while speaking about nail polish, but you know how much I value a great manicure – especially an at-home mani.


Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel is said to last up to 14 days as an at-home with no UV needed for a gel result. Since trying Greyfitti on my nails I have yet to switch to another lacquer – my tips are in love. The colour is a perfect winter pastel – grey with a blue undertone. While my polish did not last two weeks, I am confident in saying that Miracle Gel looks great on my nails for approximately seven days with only minor chips on a few nails that were hit on a hard surface, and the full shine from day one. This is definitely an improvement from regular lacquers and only requires the base (colour) coat and top coat. Black is my next go-to classic – dark coloured manicures should never live longer than their first chip, in my opinion.

I’m totally sold, have you tried it?


MANICURE MONDAY: zoya + saint germain

Decisions, decisions – I’m not very good at them. While opting for an at-home manicure last week this became ever more apparent when instead of one colour, I chose two. But who’s to say a girl can’t wear two (or more) complimentary lacquers. NOT ME.

The turquoise tones in these lacquers keep me coming back for more as blues & greens have come to be some of my favourite polishes.


MANICURE MONDAY: chestnuts about you

Happy (manicure) Monday! It’s a good one today. So far the manic/moody side of this week day have subsided – I think today is aware that we had a beautifully sunny weekend, and Team Canada won gold in Sunday’s final game.

It’s been a while since sharing a favourite polish with you, but do not worry I have not stopped painting my nails, nor will I ever. I really wonder about the day I don’t have lacquered tips…maybe a bare nail trend will be all the rage in S/S 2035 (shocking!). Regardless, I’ve found a great metallic that doesn’t scream tacky chrome, it’s Sephora by OPI Chestnuts About You. The best thing about metallics (and sparkles) is that they last forever. This one has a slight pink tone, while it’s name implies more of a brown, I beg to differ.

Hope you have a great week!
