NOTD: Chip-Free Nation 5/9/10

When it comes to nail polish, you can easily find me in toes painted black. But I don't always keep my fingers in color because I'm afraid of the dreaded chipped nails!

It's surprising how easy it is for my nails to chip. I'm talking not even a full 24 hours before I feel the need to either redo the nails entirely, or chew it all off--and I don't even bite my nails.

So if there's one thing I'll appreciate it's a good nail polish that is long-lasting and easy to dry. This is why I'm currently rocking Sephora by OPI. The color is called Three Way Mirror.

It actually looks a bit peach-like in the bottle but comes off with a slight pink hue once on your nails. But I suppose that also depends on how many coats you try.

For this look, I went with Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails (3 coats) first because my nails have become very brittle lately. Then I went with 2 coats of Three Way Mirror and 1 coat of Sally Hansen Super Shine top coat.

I think now that I've found a polish that won't chip off with every keystroke that I make, it will be a lot easier to wear more colors on my nails. And who doesn't love nicely clothed nails?

Sephora by OPI: $5
Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails: $3
Sally Hansen Super Shine Top Coat: $3

What polish/color are you girls rockin?

And Happy Mother's Day!

I think it's a gorgeous color. Sadly, my nails NEED a mani in a bad way. Maybe that will be my Mother's Day gift to myself!
