While I love trying new things, I do have favourites when it comes to nails. It took me a while to find some of these (such as the perfect top coat), so I thought I would share them with you in case you are looking to find a new favourite or are just curious about what I use.
I love, love, love the Seche Vite topcoat. It looks so smooth and shiny and it dries in LITERALLY about two minutes! I can’t stand sitting around waiting for my nails to dry before I can carry on with my day and actually use my hands. If it weren’t for this amazing top coat, I probably wouldn’t be as into nails/nail designs as I am! I just don’t have that kind of patience.
I love this top coat so much that I buy it in bulk (which saves me money over the long run and it takes awhile to run out!):
Side note: it’s important to note that this top coat does get a bit thick when it’s about half empty. Because of this, I bought the Seche Vite Restore, which thins it out with only a couple drops. If you’re going to get this awesome top coat, you need to get the Restore as well. It’s a bit inconvenient, but this top coat is so worth it! Plus, you can use the Restore on other nail polish when it gets low or old and thick and/or stringy and it’ll clear it right up!
Nail Polish Canada is where I buy the majority of my nail polish. It has a great selection of the brands I love and you earn points which you can use to get future polishes (and other stuff) free! They also do promos pretty often where you get to choose a free sample of something beauty-related with your purchase. Oh, and sometimes they surprise you with free samples of stuff! I’ve received shampoo, conditioner, cleanser, etc. And they always include a lolly pop in your package!
My first choice of favourite is Zoya. Zoya has a great formula. It goes on smooth and doesn’t chip easily. While they don’t have quite the variety of choices that other, bigger brands do, they do still have a good selection. Plus, they have unique styles like Pixie Dust (one of my favourite styles).
And the best part: Zoya’s formula is made from natural ingredients!
My second favourite is OPI. I honestly don’t have very much OPI nail polish yet (since I almost always buy Zoya because I love it so much), but what I have tried, I have loved. The formula goes on so smooth it’s ridiculous!
