Your Nails But Better4.3.15
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been resisting the nail clippers in attempt to grow my nails. While I do like to let my nails breathe sometimes, my nails weren't looking particularly good enough to go full-out au naturale. Plus, L wanted to see how long my nails were actually getting as he has never really seen them bare as they're always hiding under a coat or two of opaque colours. After all, this whole attempt to appreciate long nails on myself again was per his request. So to make things more bearable for me, I picked up the Nails Inc NailKale Illuminator in hopes that it would give a "my nails but better" finish.
I'm happy to report back and say that it indeed does give that "your nails but better" kind of finish. The iridescent pearl finish of it brightens the pinks of the nail and whitens the whites. I was pleasantly surprised by how effective a single coat of this polish was at wiping away the appearance of stains from the past six months of dark nail polish wear. In the photograph, I'm wearing two coats of it intensifies the illusion of healthier nails.
Do you ever skip opaque nail polishes and let you nails be bare?
