Even though I can’t get enough bold nail polish in my life, there are times when a good neutral just feels right!
What’s on my nails:
🔘 Photo 1: @opi Nail Lacquer in Dulce de Leche ($8.99 at @target)
💅🏻 Mini review: This Polish is nearly opaque in one (1) coat, but I did two (2) thin coats to be sure everything was covered. I love the color and the formula!
🔘 Photos 3 & 4: OPI Nail Lacquer in Dulce de Leche with @sally_hansen I Heart Nail Art Pen in Black ($6.79 at @walgreens)
💅🏻 Mini review: As you can tell, this nail art pen was an absolute waste of money – unless all you want are polka dots. It ruined my manicure, so I regret purchasing it and wouldn’t recommend it.
Do you prefer a bold or neutral manicure?

I like to have my nails polished in colors suitable for my job. I prefer creme finishes in colors like
wine, berry, OPI Russian Blue, dark teal, OPI Cajun Shrimp in the summer… My work calls for me to give presentations to corporate directors, their marketing and advertising groups, educators, book buyers, etc. I must maintain a certain degree of professionalism, (can you imagine me showing books and marketing merchandise to a board of 60-70-year-old men with nail art on my nails??) They would think I was on the gypsy circuit!) By week’s end, I’m ready for a new manicure to head back to work on Monday.

The reason I own this color is because I needed a professional nail color at a conference (comprised of mostly 50-60 year old men!), so I totally understand what you mean! I also agree that you can get away with brighter colors in a work setting, as long as it’s a creme finish and not shimmery or glittery. And I’m about the same – after a week or so, I’m ready for a change and that’s why I do them myself now instead of getting them done!
