My new favorite nail polish color
A few weeks ago I noticed a really pretty, dark red nail polish on my girlfriend's nails. It made me realize I hadn't painted my nails in what felt like forever, and I love the polished feeling of a manicure. When we were little, my sisters and I would point and gesture at everything after we'd had our nails painted and I still get that little thrill today when my hands feel finished :)
I knew I wanted a dark red, but still a true red, not a burgundy (my normal go-to) or a pale pink (my other go-to). Not fire engine, but bright and attention getting. So I cruised the nail polish aisle and found - Revlon's Valentine! (I know, seriously. I almost didn't buy it for the name because I seem to be going on and on about Valentine's Day this year).
I love the color. True red - no pink or orange tones - and it dried fast + has worn well (which is saying a lot due to all of the baby wrangling + cooking I do). I'm on day four and yes, my nails are chipped but not badly.
You can find the color online here or I'm sure just pop into a drugstore nearby. Perfect for a...wait for it...Valentine date night!
