Take Your Own Nail Polish to Manis and Pedis

Me – Crystal (pink) – Erin (tangerine)

Last week I got my first pedi of the season. My feet feel so pretty now :) One of the ways I make my pedicure last longer is to take my own nail polish for the nail techs to use instead of the salon bottles.

I purchase a high-quality polish like OPI. I recently bought the shade, You Don't Know Jacques at Ulta for $8.50 (my foot is the top left). I purchased several other items as well so I got to use my $3.50 off $10 Ulta purchase coupon to save even more!

When my polish starts to chip, I can quickly touch-up with the exact shade since I own it! This helps me save more since I can keep the polish looking great a little longer!

    Such pretty toesies!! I do the same – it makes it so easy to do any fixes later on.

    that is my alltime favorite OPI color. I ask the techs to apply a coat of gel, that helps with staying power too and costs a couple extra bucks

      Melinda, that’s a good idea! They just put a topcoat on so I’ll have to ask for that next time. I may also do shellac which I know lasts a little longer as well. They did have the same color in shellac which I was happy to see!
