I have always been addicted to nail polish.
I am one of those girls who can't last a day without wearing nail polish. You know how some people would say "you are never fully dressed without a smile?" well, I say, "you are never fully dressed without nail lacquer".
As early as 5th grade, I was addicted to nail polish. Colors here in the Philippines back then were limited, so I would ask relatives who lived in the US to buy Hard Candy Nail Polish for me. I could only wear them on weekends because the school didn't allow us to be too "kikay", so... I was at my fully dressed on weekends. I have a collection of more or less 50 nail polish colors now and growing. I take extra care of them by keeping them in the fridge (yes! You read that right, it's the fridge) because it was said that it lasts longer this way. I don't want to get into detail about that, but you can Google that one.
So, that being said, let me tell you about my recent obsession with inverted french-tip nail art. Have you guys seen the movie "Bachelorette"? It was an OK movie, but I couldn't keep my eyes off Lizzy Caplan's nails. It took me a while to find a photo of her nails in the movie, but when I finally did, I immediately imitated it:
I love that white bit peaking on the nail beds. This is called an inverted french-tip, or some would say it was a half-moon nail art. My nails weren't long enough for me to do the rounded pointed tip, so I had to make do with my square tips.
Ok, I won't recommend products because you can basically use any brand anyway. You can use any color combination that you wish, but I really fell in love with this one.
