On nail polish

It's review time! Today, I'm reviewing the X System nail polish kit from Sephora!


  1. Boo peeling nail polish boo!!! I too have been wanting a gel nail kit but they are pricey so as much as I get excited about the idea I usually balk at the price. Good job kicking the nail biting habit. My problem with my nails is that a teach art and more specically ceramics. My hands get very very dry and my nails peel and chip on a regular basis because they do get so dry. this is why I have been weary of spending so much and a gel kit and finding out it still won't hold up against my daily activities. Good luck on finding something better than the sephora nail kit.

  2. Wow, ick!! I don't normally have issues with drugstore nail polishes. I adore wet n wild with all their cute and vibrant colors. I've also heard quite a bit about OPI that was good, but haven't tried it yet myself.

  3. Gel polish. I'm a dye-hard convert ~ I have found various brands of regular polishes that can last 3 ~ 12 days depending on how hard I am on my nails, but nothing has the staying power like gels. My nails also break less with gel polish and it's so much easier to do them! It does take time to do them {5 coats; base, 3 of color, top}; I think about two hours maybe? Including soaking off the old polish? But it's not hard, and that's good.

    And it lasts up to two weeks, and hardly chips at all! Tasha from By Gum, By Golly has a wonderful series on DIY Gel polish if you want more info. Definitely worth a try I think. :D
