This is just a short post to tell you about something I discovered recently and absolutely love. CND has a fairly new product called Vinylux Weekly Nail Polish. I’ve seen it at the nail salon in the past and always thought, “Yeah, right. There’s no way that would last a week on me.” As a matter of fact, the reason I rarely get manicures is because the polish chips in two days so it’s just not worth it. Now, pedicures are a whole different story. You’ll never catch me with naked toes.
Anyway, I went to the nail salon with my friend M and she was getting a mani/pedi so I succumbed to peer pressure and decided to do the same. Feigning optimism for once, I figured I’d give the weekly polish a try. The manicurist told me that you don’t use a base coat with the weekly polish and that you have to use the Vinylux Weekly Top Coat with it. That was two weeks ago! I took the above photo today. After two weeks, you can see that the polish is just started to chip a bit. Seriously, this stuff is magical! And, as an added bonus, it comes off with regular old nail polish remover so it won’t trash your nails like gel polish does. How often does a product work better than advertised?! I’m a convert.
Now I need to figure out why my hand looks so strange in that photo. Do I have oddly muscular thumbs and just never noticed? Great…that’s one more body part to obsess over.
