My nails are currently in a pretty sad state. Moving is rough, but what really did them in was not knowing which box my basecoats and topcoats were in. Without Seche Rebuild, my tips went right back to their old, flaky, peely ways. So sad.
Fortunately I found that box (Rebuild, never leave me again), and short nails are the perfect canvas for bright, zingy colors. Plus, with a good-looking manicure, no one need know what my nails look like under the paint.
So I bring you OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns, from their fall collection (available August 4; click here for arm swatches of the whole collection). I LOVE this color. I love it so much I actually did back-to-back manicures with it. The formula is crazy opaque (in one coat, even, though I did two for a stronger manicure) and very forgiving. If you don’t get quite close enough to your cuticle, or the edge of your nail, you can paint over it. That’s really rare.
