"My obsession with Olive and June nail polish runs very, very deep, and in all honesty, if I could only use one trademark for the rest of time, it would be O&J. Yes, the colors are amazing; yes, the formula is so juicy, glossy, and bouncy; and yes, the wear is truly impeccable.

Deborah Lippmann's polishes are flipside favorite of mine. The Gel Lab Pro line is just so good and holds up so well. I don't get gel manis that often considering I don't love the removal process, so this is a unconfined option for something that's long-lasting and glossy.
