I LOVE nail polish!

I just recently organized my nail polish and counted well more than 100 shades (and that's not counting the mini nail polishes). What is it about nail polish that makes me so giddy? First of all, I love color: subtle, bold, bright, crazy, you name it. And when you put it on your nails (especially your toes) you don't have to worry about whether it makes you look fat, or if it's in fashion: You can just wear it because it makes you happy.

So it's with much excitement that I look forward to the launch of Salma Hayek's Nuance nail lacquers at CVS, scheduled for November 19. According to WWD, Salma's daughter Valentina was the inspiration to add nail colors to the line (as well as making them less toxic). Salma is not the only mom who lives with a nail polish diva. I have done two mani-pedis this weekend alone on my daughter. (That's more than I get in a month!)

The Nuance nail lacquer line will feature 30 shades, as well as a protective base coat formulated with bamboo extract and a chip-resistant top coat. I am sure there is at least one shade Salma has created that I don't have in my collection, and at $6, it's an affordable splurge. The Nuance nail polishes will be featured in CVS' Nail HQ, which also is launching this month.

CVS' nail HQ is a free-standing Kiosk in more than 2,000 CVS/pharmacy stores. These kiosks will showcase the latest trends and innovations in nail care. CVS also has a Facebook page with plenty of tips and great techniques. Sounds like Nirvana for nail addicts like me and my daughter.
