A few weeks back I was shooting content for The Estée Edit and got to talking to Olive and June nail salon owner Sarah Gibson Tuttle. I was telling her about how I’ve stopping painting my nails. I still get manicures, but having a color on my nails is too annoying. For starters, I be busy: I’m working out, cooking, doing dishes, carrying luggage, traveling, and unpacking boxes, daily. A manicure doesn’t last for longer than a day or two, and I’m too much of a visual perfectionist (the nice way of saying anal) to have chipped nails. I tried gel, but it made my nails break and took too much time to have put on and taken off.
Enter: Liquid Buff. When I told Sarah about my predicament she said “You need to try this” and handed me a bottle. “It’s a nourishing polish that gives the illusion of a buff and lasts for weeks.” she explained. I’ve been hooked ever since. When I looked it up online, it turns out that she actually created it with manicurist Jenna Hipp and RGB founder Gina Carney. Formulated with nourishing Vitamin E and Biotin, one coat gives bare nails a flawless, natural look that lasts an entire week. Or two. Or three.
