PRO­POSAL PREP

Elle (Canada) - - Relationship -

An en­gage­ment #nail­fie with­out a mani is like com­ing home from a sam­ple sale empty-handed. The fix: a long-last­ing lac­quer like Essie Gel Cou­ture Nail Pol­ish ($14, at drug­stores and mass-mar­ket re­tail­ers). Pure pig­ments and shine-boost­ing resin help colour last as long as a gel—no UV light nec­es­sary. That means you won’t have to re­turn to the salon for a redo if some­one, ahem, doesn’t get down on one knee fast enough. Ap­ply two coats of pol­ish—skip the base coat be­cause this prod­uct sticks bet­ter with­out one—and fol­low with the match­ing top­coat. Bonus: The line has 42 new colours, which might even pro­vide some brides­maid-dress in­spo.
