OK, whatever you do, do not — DO NOT! — attempt to remove your pedicure polish by sticking a toe into the Olive & June Nail Polish Remover Pot.
I’m going to file this life lesson under “things that seemed like a good idea at the time.”
Ha ha ha!
For removing nail polish off of fingers, though, is another story. It’s super easy — pop you nail into the pot, which has a presoaked sponge inside, and move it around a few times.
It’s lot less hassle compared to having to get a cotton pad and a bottle of nail polish remover. It’s so easy, in fact, I’m making it the my weekly nail upkeep routine.
Anywho! Painting nails has been really fun with the Olive & June Mani System that my friend Marisol gifted me for my birthday. Connor has been enjoying it too, and she even volunteered to help out with a couple swatches.
We’re wearing three of the six new summer shades! On my fingers, I’m wearing two coats of How Do You Spell Bougainvillea? Connor’s sporting two coats of House of O&J and Not a Cloud.
One thing that’s interesting to me about these particular shades is that they have a level of coverage that’s not quite opaque, so even with two coats, you can see a bit of the whites of your nails coming through if you look very closely. (You can’t see it from an arm’s length away, in case you’re wondering.)
These shades have a tiny smidge of translucency, which seems to be on-trend with all the jelly manis that’ve been happening lately!
I naturally prefer a solid block of color, but the more I wear the jelly-style shades, the more I like it, go figure.
All this to say — even when you know exactly what you like, you just never know if you’ll be into a new trend until you try it. 🙂
Have you tried this type of jelly mani yet? I think you should give it a go!
