Summer girls have different ways of expressing their vibe during their most favorite season, including me. It is a known fact that aside from the lips, nails are the absolute accessory of women that are part of the body. And they just call “Hey it’s summer, aren’t you gonna paint or glam us up?”
True enough, nail trends have been on a great evolution ever since the very first nail polish has hit our shores.
In the 50s, classic red nails were the bomb, straid neutral palettes came by on the 60s that rocked ladies, and then we had gorgeous metallic almost donned in every female nail in the 70s. Fluoro and neon hues were reigned in the 80s, as they were succeeded by the deep angsty colors of the 90s.
The flow of the century created major breakthroughs as far as the fanciful nail industry is concerned. Golly, I even remember using my dad’s white liquid paper when I was 5.
The beauty and fashion scene have seen the different colors of the decades, from French tips to demure nude tints then to the mesmerizing and intricate nail art, who’s to say that we can’t be blown away with today’s take on nail artistry?
“We’re still big fans of the elaborate techniques showcasing beautiful nail art popularized in recent years; or the classic colors and hues that are trademarks of great eras, but we find the creativity behind the return of basic and bold hues very refreshing,” says Arvin Amaro, Brand Manager.
The trend somehow is entailed to be a combination of stability and functionality. After all, your hands, your manicure should still make a statement, but that’s difficult to do when your fingertips are crowded with rhinestones, plus you have to carry your baby like I do.
So instead you turn to color and quality instead, but of course it has to be durable as it is head-turning!
If you think we are asking too much from a nail polish, think again. Because I am bunnyhopping with glee as CND’s Creative Play collection is up for the challenge, and wins with flying colors!
A week ago, I had my nails done using CND’s Creative Play. I was super amazed because they are really sturdy and resilient, despite me carrying my clingy baby the entire pampering time. And even up to today, as I am typing this down, my gel polish is still all intact. No chipping, no kidding!
As you can see, I am that summer girl who wants to express herself through her nails, so I chose a mermaid pattern as it represents my blog and my passion project.
Seriously, this gel polish holds! This is a perfect polish for moms like me who does a lot at home, and for girls who are planning on going to their summer getaways!
So where do you get them, merfriends?
Just visit Nailogy. I went to the branch in Robinsons Magnolia, and the staff is very nice and patient! Calum is extra clingy that day (might be a growth spurt!) so he has to be on my lap the entire time, which made the whole pampering session challenging, as it is for me and my nail fairies!
So before you head out for your sunny adventures, it’s a must to visit Nailogy branches (Robinsons Place Ermita, Robinsons Galleria or Hypermart Pasig) and be sure to ask and try the CND Creative Play Summer Collection!
