Old Nail Polish Made New

Hi lovelies!

Do you ever put products away that you rarely use to make room for new ones, and then later find those products and fall in love with them!? It's a feeling I know all too well, and one I experienced again this evening!

A long long time ago I purchased OPI's "Matched Luggage" polish. It's this sort of off-white shade that I found hard to wear because it requires more than one coat to look "finished". Well, after not wearing it more than maybe once, I put it to the back of my nail polish "shelf" and forgot about it.

Now, with winter snowing down upon us here in Montreal, my nails are in need of some desperate TLC. So, while watching this week's episode of Gossip Girl, I decided to add a strengthener and try to get them back in good condition. I looked for a nail polish to pair with it (and to mask the cracks and splits!) and decided (with a little trepidation) to try Matched Luggage again.

I am super impatient when it comes to waiting for nail polish to dry - there is a reason they associate watching paint dry with utter boredom...same applies to nail polish in my opinion. But the nice thing about watching a TV show while painting your nails is that you are distracted while the polish dries and so you (I) don't fidget with stuff and try to accomplish something while my nails are still wet...and then I mess them up (this always happens!)

AND, this was the finished product! (WARNING - My nails are pretty short compared to how they looked in the nail video I made...gotta love winter, eh?)

This is what my nails now look like after two coats of Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment "Strength" and two coats of OPI's Matched Luggage.

Needless to say, I am in love with this colour now! I will definitely be wearing it again.

Let me know! Which products have you re-discovered and fallen in love with all over again?!
