Last polish you wore on fingernails? Yikes… it’s been so long since I’ve worn polish at all. I think it was an ORLY lime green polish that shifted pink and blue. Really pretty, but I don’t remember the name at the moment.

Last polish you wore on toenails? See above, lol.

Favorite polish remover? Zoya Nail polish remover. It’s either 5 or 7 free and its doesn’t leave my nails or cuticles feeling super dry afterward, which is nice. And, it stings less than acetone if you have a cut on your finger, which I appreciate.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair).

Last polish you wore on fingernails? I honestly cannot remember! It has been almost a year since I last wore color on my fingernails. I’m not sure how or why this wound up happening, either.

Last polish you wore on toenails? Can’t remember which one, but a greenish blue sometime this past August/early September.

Favorite polish remover? Anything that says “nourishing/strengthening” in its name!

Last polish you wore on fingernails? Gangsta Boo from Floss Gloss. It is a classic red cream.

Last polish you wore on toenails? Dark Side of the Moon from Deborah Lippmann. Dark purple cream.

Favorite polish remover? I own a bottle of Soak Off, an acetone remover, because I have silk wraps but since I get my nails done professionally, I use whatever my nail tech has. When the salons were closed and I was putting polish on myself, I bought something in a tube called Remove and Chill Nail Enamel remover, which was a cream. It worked on regular polish but I don’t know how it would work on the wraps.

Last polish you wore on fingernails? Essie Expressie’s Don’t Hate, Curate (an Autumnal golden yellow). Letting my nails rest this week, but dark gray-almost-barely-blue Petal Pushers is next. 🙂
Last polish you wore on toenails? I barely went outside at all during sandal season, so it’s been forever. What’s the point? I still remember the color, though, it was Essie’s Birthday Girl (pink glitter).
Favorite polish remover? Undecided. I’m using a pure acetone one right now, but it’s too strong and damages my nails.

Favorite polish remover? “Sophi Nail Polish Remover” [acetone free, low-odor, eco friendly, safe for natural nails] can be found at Azurestandard.com or Amazon

In my quest to support small / locally owned business, I found this sweet company Sophi / Piggy Paint .

“Melanie Hurley is the mother of two “very fancy” little girls who always loved to have their fingernails painted. They would do their nails and sing songs while the polish dried, but Melanie always worried about the fumes. Plus, she didn’t want solvent-based polishes ending up in her children’s mouths.

So Melanie began a quest to develop a kid-friendly polish without the chemicals. That’s how Piggy Paint was born, and it was an immediate success. She then launched SOPHi – a natural line of nail polish for adults.”
