I LOVE to paint my nails and have them nicely manicured
I love to use different shades of pink on them- those are my favorite. I also LOVE something with a little bit of kick to it like the color i'm currently wearing- it's OPI's "Lincon Park After Dark" it's a gorgeous purple/black color. It looks really nice - i keep my nails nice and make sure the polish doesn't chip so it looks good, not goth. I also have a really cute orangish/pink color that i like to wear sometimes too
Reds and nude colors are great too! Heck, i just love painted nails
There are several brands that i really love: OPI, Sally Hansen, FingerPaints, and Wet n' Wild. All have great colors and rarely ever chip
They range from about $.99 - $7.50 and all are great! I'm a florist- so designing can wreak havoc on your nails- so i always try to keep mine nicely manicured to keep them in good shape.
When i'm in a hurry for time and need them to dry quickly- i turn my hair dryer on low and hold it a few inches away from my wet nails - it drys them sooooo quickly and they never smear that way!
Here's the link to Finger Paints- they sell um in Sally Beauty Supply Stores -they're great! www.fingerpaints.com

I love having options!
