In preparation for Brasil (I know, I haven't even gotten to the wedding yet..it's coming!), I started researching like mad for Brasiliera beauty blogs. I had to know what sorts of things I needed to keep my eyes open for; quickly finding that I should be on the lookout for nail polishes. It seemed as though one brand in particular was overtaking the blogosphere, and that brand was Colorama. You'd never know based on the packaging, but the brand is owned by L'Oreal, yet produced in Sao Paulo.I wish that I had tested Rosa Pink (a sassy hot pink--the type of shade that rarely gets the love it deserves) prior to returning home--it applies like a paint, and is virtually un-chippable! I prefer very hot showers, and that is usually death to my poor nails. Not so with this baby..I've had about three of them in a row (the visual above was taken after all three) since applying, and there has yet to be a change. When it comes to polish, I tend to prefer brands like Essie and OPI--yet these were much cheaper, and with better results! I also picked up an Impala nail varnish, which has a champagne-ish gold sheen to it. I've yet to try that one, but am hoping for similar results. What are your go-to nail polish brands?
