While I love beautiful saturated nail color including true reds, sometimes there’s nothing better than a great, low-maintenance, goes-perfectly-with-everything neutral shade. My absolute faves right now are OPI San Tan-Tonio and Samoan Sand, two really clean, polished (no pun intended… well maybe a little pun intended), sophisticated neutral nail colors.
Also, did you know that there is a difference between nail lacquer (ex. OPI) and nail polish (ex. Essie)? I sure didn’t. An expert with InStyle Beauty magazine explains, “polish contains more solvents, so it dries quickly, while lacquers (also called enamels) have more pigments for smoother, albeit slower, coverage.” Interesting.
