I’m not a huge make-up and beauty person. The most time I ever do is occasionally curl my hair (quickly with my flat iron) and do my nails.
While we were at dinner in New York on of our service had on a great nail polish color. It was a combination of blush and nude which is pretty much the only color I ever wear. I had to ask her what the color was and she told me it was an OPI color called “Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around”. I saved the name in my phone so I could look it up when we got home.
I ended up forgetting about the polish by the time we arrived back home. I was surprised when on Christmas morning my in-laws gave me that same color in OPI’s GelColor along with a regular top and base coat and the light to cure the gel.
I honestly wasn’t sure how often I would use it because it is a little bit more of a time commitment to put it on and it does require precision but the gel color lasts so much longer than regular polish!
The first time I did my nails I was able to wear the color for 2 weeks without and chipping, breaks or peeling. I would recommend having it done at a salon just to make sure it is done properly, but if you have the experience and time it isn’t difficult to do at home at all.
