Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish in Tiki Tiki Laranga + Shellac Hot Pop Pink. Elizabeth and James Nirvana Body Oil. Ring, Joe Fresh. Manicure, Leeanne Colley/ and Tips Nail Bar.

This week the Lipstick League has a simple question: What are you wearing? On your tips and your toes, specifically? Nail polish? Soak-off UV gel? And what shade? Or shades? Tone-on-tone?

I'm wearing soak-off UV gel, as I have consistently since 2010. (If you're worried about my nail health, here's what my bare nails look like after years of soak-off gel manicures.) On my toes: Artistic Colour Gloss UV Gel in Owned, a fabulous bright neon pink coral. On my tips: Gelish UV Gel in exuberant Tiki Tiki Laranga plus a little angled accent of Shellac hybrid UV gel/nail polish in Hot Pop Pink. It's summer; it's all about fun with colour.
