Sephora is a well-known, French brand and chain of cosmetics stores founded in Paris in 1970. Sephora originates from “sephos”, which is Greek for “beauty” and the name Zipporah, the exceptionally beautiful wife of Moses in the Book of Exodus. I love to browse through their store in Nice, which is always full of customers.
I am always surprised that not many women I meet know about “Nail Patch” – an easy-to-apply stick-on nail varnish that lasts about 11 days (depending on the shade you choose, it may last longer). There is NO need for drying time (see video below) and is removed with nail polish remover. I have been using this product on and off for years, most recently trying the French manicure (a little more time consuming to apply, but still, easy to do!)
Choices range from pale pink to ruby red and, most recently, patterns such as plaids, stars, and leopard print for the most daring!
For those of you who prefer liquid nail polish, I recently read a nail tip: dip a cotton ball in vinegar, then swipe it over your unpolished nail. Then apply a base coat, polish, and a top coat as you normally would, to make the polish last longer (I have not tried this, so if you have, let me know if it works.)
