If you are like me and have a hard time sneaking away for a manicure or pedicure you know once you get one you want to make it last. I have always tried to keep refreshing the topcoat layer but sometimes I don’t have enough time to let it dry. This product looks great, it protects your nails and you don’t need to find drying time. 

Waking up on the wrong side of the nail bed? This high-performance polish partner can keep cuticles in check and give you tips tough enough to type home about.

I’m mostly giving myself advice here… I have a really hard time trying bright summer colors.  I’m a dark red – kinda girl.  None of this bright frilly stuff.  So I’m trying, I’m really really trying to brighten up my toes for the summer.  Erin and I got a pedicure on Thursday – and I did, in fact try a bright fun color this time.  Here it is Tuesday, and the color is STILL on, so it’s not killing me!
