As a teenager, I bit my nails. I couldn’t use nail polish. I had no nails. Thankfully, I outgrew the habit and I’ve discovered the colorful world of nail polish!

I see nail polish as racy lingerie for nails. Except way better because I can show it off to everyone I meet!

I can re-invent my nails and add a touch of sparkle and glamour whenever I want. Whether I’m wearing a suit, a flirty dress or my everyday jeans, I know I can embellish my nails with shades that will make me shine and sparkle.
