I figured I'd keep my first post pretty simple with a nails of the day post. I paint my nails about every other day, more frequently if I'm working. Other than that, I don't do a lot as far as maintenance. I use hand cream at night and whenever else I need it and/or think about it. My favorites are Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream (drugstore.com currently has a coupon for $1 off - final price is $3.49 for 2 oz.) and Kiehls Ultimate Strength Hand Salve ($20 for 5 oz.).
I have a love affair with deep, dark, and/or opaque nail polishes. Visible nail line annoys the heck out of me. That said, today's "nail of the day" is Zoya Ibiza. It is a beautiful deep indigo blue with shimmer. The shimmer isn't very prominent, especially inside (F for me for taking nail pics inside - but its really cold, and it gets dark at like 4:30). Indoors it looks very dark, but you can see how the blue flashes in the pictures. Loveeee. I almost got away with one coat today, but I always do two out of habit, and I think it usually looks better. I used Orly Bonder for my base coat, and Lippmann Collection Addicted to Speed for my top coat.
