Artificial Nails Present the Opportunity for Some Cool OPI Nail Colors

About every 5 weeks I will get my hair trimmed. However, getting a fill every couple of weeks for my artificial nails IS the ONLY luxury that I allow myself these days. With the state of the economy, I will often stretch getting that fill to maybe every 3 or 3-1/2 weeks. Honestly, I am not a high-maintenance blonde, but I do like my artificial acrylic nails!

Since my very first set of artificial nails many a year ago, I was introduced to OPI nail polish. I've used OPI nail polish probably since it was invented. If I wasn't a blogger or lensmaster, I think I'd want to work in the marketing and product development department for OPI. Have you ever noticed just how clever the nail polish names are?

artificial nails For example, in the Russian Collection you will find St Petersburgundy, Boris & Natasha, Siberian Nights, Russian Navy, An Affair in Red Square, A Ruble for Your Thoughts, Vodka & Caviar, Catherine the Grape, Cosmo Not Tonight Honey, Midnight in Moscow, Suzi Says Da, and Kreme de la kremlin. I recently tried the Russian Navy which looks quite dark -- almost black. When the light hits it, there is a hint of deep purple; however, when you take off the color, it looks deep blue or navy!


Color Club Nail Polish

So, I discovered a new brand of nail polish that I think is really hot in its cool colors. It is Color Club and it comes in a little square bottle. The line of colors that I love are poptastic neon colors.

  1. Interesting content.

    Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

    However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
