I have to admit that with low maintenance and laziness, my natural nails aren't the prettiest and of course aren't something I like to flash around. But no worries because nail polishes are a girl's best friend. I haven't really dedicate much time on this blog for nail products, which I do have to apologize because they are adorable and practical and definitely deserve a spot on my beauty list.
Nail Pick It is a blog post series in which I pick and share one nail product that I love and wear the most at the moment. It could be a nail polish, a Konad nail art, or just a certain nail style.
Please don't throw rotten tomatoes at me when I say that I don't like OPI nail polishes. I know I belong to the minority of girls who doesn't go crazy for this brand, and of course I have my many reasons for this. OPI tends to chip and break on me easily. The prices are also way out of control for a bottle of nail polish ($8 - over $10 depending on where you buy them). If you want to know my favorite nail to go brand, it has to be Zoya because I am seriously a die hard fan for their high qualities and much affordable prices ($6). But, this is not to say that I don't wear OPI. Occasionally, I do come across gorgeous shades that just lure me in.
The much anticipated OPI Spring/Summer 2010 Collection, Hong Kong, takes us to the far East with 12 modern and edgy shades. My top pick of the collection is Jade Is The New Black ($8.50). With Chanel's Jade ($25) getting on everyone's hit list, green is officially back. But, being the usual me, I obviously had to find something a bit different, and that is when I laid my eyes on Suzi Says Feng Shui ($8.50), which is a beautiful blue creme color with a grey undertone. Although I'm not so sure what Feng Shui has to do with nail polishes, I'm definitely having the best of luck with this and getting lots of compliments. The color is just right. Not too light and Not too dark. It is the perfect shade to wear all year long.
