Polish & Co: Mint To Tell U, But You Knew That
Some of my readers know that I am very, VERY southern. Due to moving quite often (because my husband is in the US Navy) I have lost a lot of my accent but it only takes a split second of chatting with a fellow southerner to pull it all back out. One thing that comes with a southerner is a touch of pride: pride in oneself, pride in where they are from, and pride in the success of other southerners. Polish & Co. is a North Carolina based nail polish company, and I am proud that they southern and sassy!
North Carolina and Mint Juleps go hand in hand so it is no surprise that the beautiful mint colored nail polish has the sassy name "Mint To Tell U"! The orange-coral shade is called "But You Knew That"! I cannot tell you how many times I have said that phrase in my life while playfully teasing someone. The playful phrase and fun polish, to me, are a perfect fit. Also, what an AWESOME combo! Not only the colors look great together but the titles of the polish are hilarious when paired with one another.. :)
The formula of these polishes are a tad thick. "Mint To Tell U" is perfectly opaque with one coat, but I realized that "But You Knew That" needs 2-3 coats to build up to that same opacity. They applied easily and lasted a few days without any chipping and minimal tip wear.
The colors I have are on the more summery side but they easily transition into the fall! There is one passage I read on their "About Us" page on their site that I LOVE, which is:
"Now, thanks to founder and nail industry expert of 23 years, Theresa Williamson you can have at least your nails emulate that syrupy, southern belle look. Nails are just as important as the latest fashion accessory and can have a large impact on an outfit and a personal general look, so getting them right is crucial."
A few months back I wouldn't have agreed with this statement because my nails were always bare or a basic french manicure and only my toes had fun colors on them, but I am now a full blown nail polish addict and couldn't agree more. I change my nail polish on my hands several times a week, okay... probably more like daily unless I am testing a polish for longevity! I love to coordinate them with what I am wearing or coordinate a design with an upcoming event.
Polish & Co. nail polishes retail for $12 and are available on their retail site. If you buy more than one polish it automatically qualifies you for free shipping on your order! Who doesn't love free shipping? You can also check out their Facebook page and Twitter feed!
I adore these polishes and I am certain you will to! What color nail polishes are you going to be wearing to transition you into the different weather and different fashion trends?
