I have an insane amount of nail polishes. I mean, I always knew that, but in my old apartment, they were sort of scattered around in a variety of places, so it didn't really hit me just how many I had. Then I moved and decided to organize them all by color, which is fabulous now that it's done, but that was about five hours of my life that I'm never going to get back. So of course, once it was all organized and everything fit EXACTLY into their boxes, I got the chance to try a new brand and I jumped at it. (Because, really, can one ever have too many nail polishes?)
Polish & Co. is a brand new to me, based in North Carolina. (And hilariously, I was just joking around with a southern friend of mine about how they drink mint juleps on their porch all day and when I was on Polish & Co.'s website, they mention mint juleps. Perfect timing! Also, I must have one of those soon because I've never tried one and they sound delicious). I tried out two of their polishes - Future and a Past (a grayish-purple) and Shi-Krazy (a dark turquoise blue) and they're definitely both worthy of making it into my polish rotation.
I'm a big fan of the gray-tinged neutrals, so I totally fell in love with Future and a Past. It's a little bit of a... funky basic, for lack of a better way to describe it. And Shi-Krazy (love the name!) is a really pretty dark blue shade, sort of a subtle way to get some color on your nails. It's very pretty, and this is coming from a fairly recent convert to blue polish. (I was really missing out before, wasn't I?)
The wear time on these is pretty standard - I got about a week out of each shade before I started looking at my hands and seeing noticeable chipping, but actually, that's pretty good considering that it was during my move, so I'm sure my nails were getting beat up more than usual. So maybe I should revise that and say that the wear time is a little better than usual for me. Also, the polishes are specifically made for long wear on natural nails, and they're all 3 Free and non-toxic, so they get bonus points for that. Plus, the polishes are very reasonable at $12 apiece, and if you order two or more shades, shipping is free. Mint juleps for everyone!
