Don’t get me wrong—I love a gel manicure every now and then but they can really take a toll on my nails and, let’s face it, I’m not living on Oprah’s budget. It’s taken years of practice, but I’m now able to achieve a salon look at home. Here are a few of the polishes you can expect to see on my fingers all autumn long. These formulas are tried and true—opaque, easy to apply and they can be quite long wearing if applied and cared for properly. Do you have any polish recommendations for us? We’re always looking to add to the collection.
