Lacquer Saturday: I’m in a Hurry!

I’ve realized I’m kind of a last-minute sort of person when it comes to my nails. I decide which color to change them to about 20 min before I need to leave the house, and I haven’t gotten dressed yet. As such I’ve been getting a lot of use from the (so-called) quick dry top coats, which sometimes aren’t as quick as we’d like them to be. So this week I’m sharing my top three picks for the best “quick dry” top coats!

#3: Essie Good to Go- As big of an Essie fan as I am, I have to put their quick dry top coat in last place on this one. It’s not awful, I definitely thought it would dry quicker than it did, but I’d use it again if I’m in a jam.

 #2: Sephora Quick Dry Spray- This one isn’t a polish but instead a spray, and it worked way better than I expected. I tried it out in the store over a Sephora by OPI color I was trying out (I figure Sephora wouldn’t allow you to open nail polish bottles if they didn’t want me to sample them)

Lacquer Saturday: OPI – Fly

I’m really more of an Essie girl at heart but sometimes I find these super-cute OPI colors and I just can’t help myself! As is the case with this blue-green colors from the Nicki Minaj x OPI Collection called ‘Fly“. So as Fly is one of my favorite songs from her (I feel like it’s one of the realest songs on that album) I made no hesitation to ‘buy it now’ on Ebay and try it out real quick. With the exception of the ‘Pink Friday’ (a pastel pink hue) the collection is a range of bold and bright colors, which is what I tend to gravitate towards as we go into spring. The ‘Fly’ color is a little tropical, which is a good pick-me-up from this disrespectfully windy and cold weather we’ve been experiencing:
