    I think it’s bourgois (or something like that) in the colour Lira, it’s easy to apply, dries fast, the colour is a fantastic gold. Then I have just a l’Oreal Paris dark blue colour on top, dotted on in the shape of triangles.

    Unfortunately nothing! lol I tend to shy away from wearing polish on my finger nails during the fall and winter months. I think this is mostly due to the fact that I love to wear bright colors, and I do not feel so comfortable wearing bright shades during this time of year. I’m not a fan of deep, dark shades of nail polish at all (with the exception of a nice black). However, I am wearing OPI Nicole Alert on my toes at the moment. Love it!

    Essie Fiji, which chips quite easily because it’s a bit goopy on application…

    Love nail polish, esp the blue green duochrome you reviewed today. I however, have paper thin nails that constantly break. They also have vertical creases.
    for reasons stated above, I can’t wear nail polish. It chips in less than a day. This happens with all brands & all preps I’ve tried. Had acrylics but can’t afford to maintain them and also had a fungus problem.
    The answer to your question is “nothing”.

      Try silk wraps, gentler and less chemicals than acrylics but give strength and longevity to brittle nails. I’ve been doing it pretty much nonstop since I began my residency when my hands were in water constantly and my nails were peeling off. Its a lifesaver. Now they have the gel manicure, also supposed to last 2 weeks, may give the same results, I haven’t tried it because I am very happy with my wraps. I can get three weeks out of them if I have to, althoug they don’t look quite fresh after a week and a half. There are options, beauty does not have to be painful!

      I’ve found that the Dior Creme Abricot really does help strengthen my nails. It is a little pricey ($25 at Sephora) but a little goes a long way.
      It is a bit sticky, but the product is solid (so it’s not messy) and the container is portable, so keep it in your purse and apply throughout the day.

Perfect fall color, I have you to thank for letting me know it existed, where to see swatches and give me the courage to order it online sight unseen. Best beauty purchase in a long time!
