One of my favourite things about beauty is the ability to change your routine according to your mood and preferences. Some time ago I’ve posted about the different nails shape and length I’ve had during the years, and today I want to share about my current obsession which is long almond-shaped manicure.
I am not entirely sure where this came from but several weeks ago, I’ve decided that I want my nails to look this way, I was even considering stiletto [shape] but that is not very practical in real life.
So here is just a picture of the latest two manicures I’ve had this month. The red
I wanted to try a new (story of my life with all those new products) top coat, and I’ve decided to get LCN Speed Dry this time, as I’ve never tried anything from the brand before. And, as you could see from my April Favourites post – I really like it.
I have been using it for several weeks already and here is what I’ve noticed – it does make the nail polish dry a lot faster. It also adds shine and gives you that “salon” manicure look. But my favourite thing about this top coat is that it doesn’t add that extra

Have been wearing it on my nails for the last week, so expect the nails of the day soon.
It goes perfectly
Now that I have been using Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri for quite a long time, I want to share my impression.
I wanted to try a new top coat and decided to choose one from the brand. They actually had a lot of different options, but I’ve chosen this one, since I’ve heard good things about it. And also…I love red.
I am painting my nails at least twice per week. I find that nice manicure not only never fails to improve my mood but also somehow increases my productivity. How can you not be productive with red nail polish on?
But there is one product that I often neglected in the past – base coats. A good base coat should make your nail polish last longer, protect the nails from staining, make them smoother, which would make the nail polish application easier, and maybe even strengthen them.
However, I wasn’t pleased with any base coats I have tried in the past, they took forever to dry which made the whole process longer, and
