Some people's beauty obsessions are obvious early in life. For my best friend, Katie Reed, and me, it was definitely nail polish. We've been in love with cool, bold colors since the early 90's -- we used to trade them back and forth while sitting in our high school hallways before class. For the next 12 days, we'll be bringing you some of our favorites in what we're calling 12 Days of Favorite Nail Colors.
This feature really came about over six months ago. Katie and I tossed around the idea of showing all of you our very favorite nail polishes. We originally were going to do a top 10, but I have to be honest -- it was impossible to only pick 12 shades! Over a weekend in Boston (I was there visiting Katie and her adorable son, Walter), we finally narrowed our picks to 12 -- and even that was difficult. Truth be told, we felt like we were leaving out some of our babies! But we hope you'll enjoy our picks over the next 12 days, and share your favorites with us as well. Throughout the feature, you'll notice a pretty well-rounded list in terms of color and brand.
For the first day, we're really pulling out all the stops. (Well, we will be for all 12 days, but we're especially excited to kick things off today with these fabulous colors!) I picked an amazing color by Nails Inc., while Katie's color is by China Glaze. Keep reading to see what they are!
