Copper Nails

Let me tell you the story of how I got to these copper nails. Originally, I wanted a nude nail. However, my skin color clashed horribly with the yellow undertones of the nude nails. I hated them! I didn’t want to go through the struggle of removing them and putting on a new set because it was already late so I took a chance and painted them. I knew that nail polish doesn’t stick to matte press on nails but I hoped that it would!

I used the ILNP polish in “Abundance (H)” and the results were much better. The copper was dark enough to cover the original matte color and I didn’t see any signs of the nail polish lifting. I topped it off with the Holo Taco top coat and cuticle cream plus lotion. I was happy with the final look.

2021 Nails

I love nails! I have my nails done 98% of the time. That 2% represents when I’ve taken off acrylics, press ons, or nail polish. In the Reels above you see my 2021 nail journey. I stuck to regular nail polish and acrylic nails for the majority of the year. It wasn’t until October that I started wearing press ons. The acrylic nails are done by my nail lady while the regular polish and press ons are done by me.

I discovered ILNP nail polish late 2020 so the majority of my nail polish colors in the beginning of 2021 were that brand as I learned the best way to make the manicure last. When I switched to press ons in October I expanded my size range. I prefer small sized press ons because they’re less likely to pop off but I found some medium sized ones that gave me added length without the worry. I dipped into the large sized section and I learned that they’re not that practical because of my line of work. Although pretty, they are not as durable.

I would say that my nails were pretty good last year. I definitely branched out in designs and got plenty of compliments.
