Beauty Swellness: The Nail Report

Lancome Vernis in Love manicure

Nail-job craving: Something dramatic from the upcoming Lancôme Vernis in Love nail polish collection (it launches in May).

How I satisfied that craving: At Tips Nail Bar (thanks for the manicure, Lancôme!) with the deep almost-black purple Rouge Reglisse, and an accent nail in Rose Boudoir. The polishes have loads of pigment; even after just one coat these colours looked true and solid.

How this nail colour makes me feel: Like I’m settled back into Toronto’s winter. The bright stripes I had for Mexico last week were a bit jarring for city life right now. And with the bright pink accent nail, it adds a bit of optimism — a sign of spring that’s soon to come, is how I think of it.

Love it or hate it: Love. I am curious to see how long I remain chip-free — this is the first regular polish manicure I’ve had in ages (usually I have a soak-off gel on my nails). “Well, if you’re opening lipstick packaging every day, any regular polish will chip,” Leeanne at Tips says to me when I started pondering the durability. I had a good giggle over this. Her example of my regular tasks — not doing dishes, not prepping dinner, not crafting, but “opening lipstick packaging.” And she’s not wrong, that is a daily to-do!
