I’m currently obsessed with this nail color. I tend to gravitate towards neutral nail polishes as they go with everything and seem work-appropriate. I still have beaches on the brain, so this sand/khaki color makes me very happy.
This particular color is by the Harmony no-chip, gel line called Gelish. Other no-chip lines include OPI Axxium and CND Shellac. This polish is applied to the nail and then cured under a UV light. The result is a no-chip manicure for up to 2 weeks (although I’ve gone as long as 3 before without chips). The upsides to this type of polish: super smooth finish for up to 2-3 weeks; instantly dry- no smudges before you even get out of the salon door; polish makes your nails feel super strong. Downsides: cost; upkeep has to be done by a pro; some say it’s damaging to the natural nail because it must be removed with an acetone soak.
