Nails of the Week

Happy Apothecary Tapping Tips “Paint it Red” and NYC “Brown”

This was the first time I had ever painted my nails red, and I hated it at first but it’s definitely grown on me this past week.  I love the combo of the red with the “greige” paint on the pinky finger- for some reason the combination seems like it’d be fun for a Christmas or Valentine’s nail theme.

As for the polish, I really like the formulation of the Happy Apothecary nail polish (red one), which can be found at Aerie stores.  It’s stayed on about 4 days without any serious chipping- at that’s without a top coat (as I hadn’t planned on keeping them red).  I’d say it took about two coats for it to be completely opaque.

The NYC polish is good too; it’s a quick-dry polish, went on opaque and I haven’t had any serious chipping either.  This polish is around $2 at your local pharmacy or Walmart.  The Aerie polish was a gift, but you can get it online for around $5.
