color: Take me to the Thread
I was at Target stress-shopping the other day and found myself at the back aisle of beauty where they keep the nail polishes. Because I was stress-shopping (which is generally healthier than stress-eating, but not great for the finances) I impulsively picked up one of the new Essie Gel Couture colors and the Top coat.
You guys, this is the best nail polish I've ever used and that's saying something. Not only is the brush the rounded brush, which is perfection, but the coat is a one-coat does all. Then you apply the top coat and boom! There's that shine. It dries quickly and looks professional.
Although the price tag is definitely more than their normal line ($8 vs $12) I'd say it's well worth it. Give it a go next time you're at Target, I don't think you'll regret it.
