When writing about manicures + pedicures, we have often swapped the words 'lacquer' for 'polish.' But we have since learned, that "One of these two is not like the other."
Lacquer VS. Polish----There IS a difference. But does it matter which finish you choose for a great-looking mani?
Let's take a further look.
Nail professional Pattie Yankee gives these tips in the current issue of InStyle Beauty 2013:
Nail polish will always dry quicker. Polish is formulated with more solvents, the reason for the fast action.
Nail lacquer is an enamel. It contains more pigments. That allows for a smoother coverage, just at a slower rate.
So, we suppose it's really a matter of choice.
Try OPI Classic Nail Lacquer
Or, try Essie Nail Polish. This is also available at ULTA ($8.50).
