I'm normally pretty routine when it comes to manicures. Firstly, my nails must be super super super short. I don't know why, but for me the shorter = the better. I also usually just do them at home (I've kind of got it down to a science now). And of course I totally have my favorite colors. I usually go with pinks (essie "pansy" or sinful colors "pink forever") and lavender (opi "lucky lucky lavender" is my all-time go to). I know there are all sorts of crazy cool manicure choices out there these days and I really do love them, but for day-to-day, I tend to lean towards more simple nails. I decided to try out a more neutral nail this past week and kind of fell in love with revlon "powder puff" matte suede all over again. I hadn't worn it in years, but as soon as I put it on I was hooked. Now, I'm not going to lie, this color is not so easy to do on yourself. It is so pale that I had to do like 3 to 4 layers (I usually just do 2 layers and no top coat). The finish really is super matte, so the second time I applied the polish I added a top coat to give it a little more shine. I'm kind of loving this new look.
